This club season, join The Side-Out Foundation’s newest initiative 1,000 Strong and launch the 2nd phase of the Side-Out Protocol! Side-Out 2 will expand volleyball’s clinical trial to seven locations nationwide, incorporate additional methods of tumor analysis and increase the number of patient participants.
We challenge your club team to raise $250 for The Side-Out Foundation’s 1,000 Strong campaign! If 1,000 teams nationwide raise $250 per team, club volleyball will be solely responsible for donating $250,000 to the only volleyball-funded breast cancer clinical trial!

SIDE-OUT CAMP LOCATOR SERVICE
Last year Side-Out worked with the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) to create a volleyball camp locator system so possible participants can search for camps based on location, date, cost, position and skill level. Improving your skills takes knowledge, practice and passion and we are excited to be able to help connect our players with learning opportunities! Interested in learning more? The system is currently undergoing improvements, but it should be ready by mid-February. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch with you.

Fill out the informational form and your Side-Out regional liaison will contact you to set up a fundraising team page through Side-Out’s own website. Add photos and a message to your potential donors, then share it with your friends and family! You can fundraise solely through your Web page or you can host events with your team and collect funds during the event. Once you’ve reached your goal, contact your regional liaison and if you’ve raised $250 or more, your team will be given a donor number and you will officially be part of the Dig Pink Tour’s 1,000 Strong!
Every team is unique and each one approaches fundraising differently. Discuss options with your team and come up with something that represents you! Below are some ideas to get you going:
> serve-a-thon (ask family, friends and fans to pledge a certain amount of money for each serve a player makes during a serving contest)
> dig-a-thon (ask family, friends and fans to pledge a certain amount of money for each dig made by their team in a game or over the course of several games)
> host a friendship tournament
> collect items and services from local businesses/artists and organize an auction or raffle
> sell Dig Pink Tour shirts
> just ask! Reach out to your family, friends and fans via e-mail, phone or in-person and tell them you are raising money for Side-Out. They can send a check to you or donate online via your team website.
