Toronto, ON – The Toronto Rock are pleased to announce the return of our very popular School Field Trip Fundraising Program for the 2015 NLL season. The program is an opportunity to educate students about the roots of the game of lacrosse and its significance within the history of the aboriginal culture throughout Canada and North America.
Teachers and students can connect to the Ontario Curriculum for Social Studies, History and Geography Schools using elements that link the Ontario Curriculum to the Toronto Rock with classroom programming. The Canadian history of lacrosse can be used as a connection between the past and present, starting in Grade 1.
The fundraising portion of the program is quite simple. Single game tickets are purchased by the school at the base cost. Schools can then mark up each ticket to a price point that you feel will make your fundraising efforts successful up to the single game box office price. The price point should account for a suitable fundraising amount for the school and cover the expenses of food for students as well as bus transportation costs to and from Air Canada Centre.
Please note, Youth pricing is only made available to fundraising participants, there is not a youth ticket price available for purchase at the box office
“Since the conclusion of last season, we had several inquiries from schools about the chance to sing the National Anthem at a Rock home game,” explained Rock Director of Ticketing Mike Forty. “We are pleased to offer the opportunity to sing the National Anthem to the first 9 schools that commit their participation to attend a 2015 Toronto Rock home game and sell the required number of tickets as a part of the fundraising program.”
