Camoin Assoicates, one of the most respected economic development consulting firms in the northeastern United States, performed a detailed economic impact study on the GymRat CHALLENGE in February of 2017. That study concluded that the GymRat CHALLENGE provides an annual impact of over $13.8 MILLION on its host economy. In addition, the event provides over $4.7 MILLION in annual job support and generates over $1.1 MILLION in annual local tax revenue. To put those numbers in perspective, in its current New York State home, that means that the GymRat CHALLENGE is second only to the fabled Saratoga Race Track in generating tourism based economic impact over the past twenty years. In addition, in any year when the MAAC Basketball Tournament and the NCAA Tournament are hosted in New York State’s Capital Region, the GymRat CHALLENGE provides more than TWICE the economic impact of those two events COMBINED.
GymRatBasketball, LLC‘s business philosophy is based on the principles of authenticity, integrity, competition, attention to detail, and social and community responsibility. Portions of the proceeds from all GymRatBasketball events are used to aid in providing positive basketball experiences, as well as equipment and other necessary resources for youth, high school basketball, and other targeted programs.
GymRatBasketball, LLC‘s Corporate Sponsorship Program is designed to create long-term strategic relationships that precipitate win-win consequences for all involved. GymRatBasketball selectively aligns itself with established as well as cutting edge companies that are supplying goods and services applicable to event participants. By allowing event participants easy access in-event, as well as through social media channels, electronic distribution lists, and print pieces, GymRatBasketball inherently markets those goods and services across the growing GymRatBasketball network of coaches and athletes for use not only during GymRatBasketball events, but year round.
As the LARGEST EVENT OF ITS KIND IN THE EASTERN UNITED STATES AND THE THIRD LARGEST EVENT OF ITS KIND ON THE ENTIRE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT, the GymRat CHALLENGE holds a recognized level of national prominence and credibility, and provides outstanding exposure to a direct target audience for its advertisers, major corporate sponsors, and partners. With over 5,200 participants from throughout North America, sponsors are able to create brand recognition across a very coveted network of teams, coaches, players, and families.
