• Use visuals!!! This keeps your reader engaged
(If not, a first time event) Implement photos from past events – audiences, other sponsors, signage, setups, etc.
• Logo’s; include your logo on every page. If you can incorporate the company’s logo at some point it may be worthwhile, that way you can physically demonstrate the alignment between your organization and theirs
• Research companies philanthropic history; tap into their website, press writeups, ad placements, and any other industry-specific resources.
• Focus most of your proposal on the benefits to the potential sponsors

#PressRelease Former Athlete Turned Entrepreneur Launches World’s First Portable Basketball Shooting Machine. #GRINDBasketball


FullSizeRender (1)

(Houston, TX – May 15th, 2020) Thomas Fields, Founder & C.E.O. of GRIND Inc., a sports technology and athletic equipment provider, recently announced the launch of “GRIND Machine”, the world’s first portable basketball shooting machine designed to enhance independent drill training- anywhere and anytime.

IMG_2032

 

The revolutionary shooting machine has been proven to be effective in improving players’ catch & shoot efficiency, footwork, balance, explosion and follow through, while increasing player creativity & basketball IQ.
GRIND Machine allows the player to shoot up to 500 shots an hour by capturing rebounds and automatically passing the ball back to the player at any given spot on the court- including the NCAA 3pt regulation range. GRIND Basketball is equipped with a 12-foot net around the rim that strategically forces players to put more of an arch on their shot, translating to a higher percentage of made shots. This technique in repetition aims to increase muscle memory.

Fields believes this might be the most innovative, yet ideal shooting machine ever designed – “You practice ten times more efficiently using the shooting machine, so it was important to design this for practical use. I wanted to build something that basketball players, coaches, and trainers would love, because they could use it wherever and whenever.” said (Thomas Fields, Founder/Ceo of GRIND).

IMG_2723

Fully furnished, GRIND Machine seamlessly folds into a 4’x2’ weather-protective duffle bag, equipped with durable wheels for relaxed transportation.

 

Key Features:
● Portability at 48” L x 22” W x 22” H
● Weight: 100Ibs (equipped with wheels to easily transport)
● 500 shots an hour
● Manual 5 spot shooting
● Affordable (lowest market price with payment plan options)
● One-year complimentary warranty

IMG_3313

Training Benefits:
GRIND has a NO STANDING RULE, the GRIND Machine uses one ball and forces players to work hard and smart, simultaneously.
● Move without the ball
● Catch and attack
● Make shots under fatigue
● Perfect the footwork
GRIND Machine is now available for pre-orders for delivery November, 2020. For more information, please visit GrindBasketball.com.
