Becoming a Fan and Filling the Stands

Why do sporting events such as the Rose Bowl, Rivalry Games, and the Super Bowl sell out year in and year out? I have not done enough research, but I'm sure in the last 10 to 20 years each of those events have sold out almost 100% of the time! So why do these die-hard fans do any and everything to fill the stands and be a part of these sell out crowds every year? Are they supporting the star players, are they alum of the the colleges or universities, former players, do they like the razzle dazzle plays of the team, or is it just a family tradition??? I truly believe it is a combination of many of those items, along with just the overall love for the sport!

Here at Cabrini Connections we are looking to fill our stands as well. We are looking for die-hard fans who will do any and everything to support the program and all that we do. For those potential die-hard fans who support programs because of their star players, we have star players at Cabrini Connections. Take a look at the Assistant Coach's (Chris Warren) blog (http://chrispip.blogspot.com/) and read the Student and Volunteer in the Spotlight sections. Here the fans have the opportunity to read the bios of a few of the many key players on our team.

Cabrini Connections has a long list of student and volunteer alums (former players) who have graced our program at some point in their lives and our hopes is that all of our former players begin or continue to support their former Alma mater by attending and/or supporting some of our annual games. Here are a couple of games that we have on our upcoming schedule; The Art Festival on April 4th (http://www.cabriniconnections.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=86:cabrini-connections-art-club-&catid=42:learning-and-enrichment&Itemid=88), The May Conference on May 28th&29th (http://www.tutormentorconference.org/), The Year End Dinner on June 4th (check videos out at http://www.cabriniconnections.net/), and the Annual Golf Benefit on July 16th (http://www.cabrinitmcgolf.org/).

And when it comes to our razzle dazzle plays, unlike in the NFL and other sport's programs that keep their plays and playbook a secret from other teams, here at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection we ENCOURAGE others to not only look at our playbook, but we WANT other programs to use our plays in their program. Taking a look at the General Manager's, Dan Bassill, blog (http://tutormentor.blogspot.com/) and by looking at one of our playbooks at http://www.tutormentorconnection.org/, scouts, coaches, players, and other programs can not only see what we are trying to do within our program, they can use our plays for their program as well.

My goal with this post is that every reader of this article jumps on the bandwagon and becomes a fan of the Cabrini Connections program and gets others to do the same. We want you to assist us with filling the stands JUST LIKE the examples used above. We have all of the same features...standout players, notable alums, tradition, a great offense, a great facility, and the potential to win championships EVERY YEAR!

~Will YOU Become a fan and help us SELL OUT!!!~
