As a nonprofit organization, Glacier Ice Rink relies on sponsorships and advertising to offset our operational costs of providing recreational ice sports activities for our community. As a sponsor, you can reach thousands of skaters, players, and spectators who visit the rink regularly each year. Sponsorship payments may be tax-deductible and include the options below:
Reach participants and spectators alike with rink signage. Standard placement options include scoreboard banners, dasher board ads and signs above the players’ benches. Most advertising options are available on either the inside rink or the outside rink and include additional benefits such as skating passes and discounts on ice rentals. Other locations are also available, including locker rooms, bathrooms and hallways.
Rink advertising ranges from $525 (outside rink) to $3,500 (inside rink) per year.
Youth Hockey Sponsorships
Nearly 600 youth of all ages and abilities participate in our hockey programs each year. Whether they’re starting out in our Learn to Play Hockey program or competing on one of our travel teams, these young athletes gain valuable sportsmanship skills, stay physically fit, and most of all, have fun! Sponsorships are available for our house teams and our new Treasure State Royals Tier II travel team. Benefits include your name on team jerseys and inclusion in our virtual event bags sent to participants in all ten youth hockey tournaments during the season.
Youth team sponsorships are $450 (house) or $800 (travel) per season.
Adult Hockey Sponsorships
With more than 1,000 registered players, our adult hockey league is larger than all other Montana adult programs. Divisions are designed for all ability levels, from the novice skater to the retired pro, including women. We also host four adult tournaments each year, including the long-standing Flying Mules Hockey Festival that attracts 30 teams. Sponsors receive their logo on the front of their team’s jerseys and inclusion in our virtual event bag sent to Flying Mules teams and all league players.
Adult team sponsorships are $600 per season ($450 for returning sponsors).
We offer public skating sessions throughout the year that attract an average of 100 people per weekend session during the winter. In addition to our regular sessions, we hold special events to draw a larger audience and provide additional entertainment experiences. These include Spooky Skate (October), Santa Skate (December) and Sweetheart Skate (February) as well as smaller theme nights. Sponsorships of these events include admission passes and inclusion in all promotion of the event.
Event sponsorships are $250 (theme night) or $500 (special event).
