 At Impact, we believe every athlete is unique and deserves a chance to become a sponsored athlete. 

We are blown away by how many requests for sponsorships we receive each week.

When we read your submission, we really want to know what sets you above and beyond every other athlete who is seeking sponsorship. 

That’s why after reviewing so many submissions, we thought we could give you some tips on how to stand out.

Prior To Seeking Sponsorship Like/Follow Company On All Social Channels 

Yes - Companies do check to make sure that you have Liked/Followed them on all social channels.

It lets the company know that you have a sincere interest in them.

If you have not followed/liked company they will likely dismiss your submission.

 

We get it, you’ve won Games/Matches/Fights.

Tell us about that but don’t make that the only thing you say.

We get countless submissions from athletes that write one sentence, and it’s about how many fights/games/matches they’ve won.

That alone won’t win you a sponsorship.

A better strategy is to tell us about how you are going to work hard to promote our brand.  

Tell us about the other sponsors you've had along the way and why they stick with you.  

In short - tell us more about you than just your win/loss record.


Promise To Post

We sponsor many athletes, but often find they do not hold up their end of the bargain. 

This is a relationship based upon the honor system.

We want to work with athletes that love our mouthguards and will build a relationship with us.  

We want to see pictures of them smiling, training, playing, and winning in their Impact Mouthguard.

We're happy you have other sponsors but we don't want to always be listed on posts with the others.  

Make sure you treat your sponsors right by posting for each individually.  

Make your sponsors feel special and they will continue to support you with gear and maybe even cash.


Followers Matter

Yes, we do look at how many followers you have.

While we don’t have a minimum on how many followers you need, we do tend to prefer athletes with an audience.

Understand, this doesn’t mean if you have 250 followers you’ll never be chosen.

You may be if you are...


Passionate And Convincing

We actually read your submissions, so take the time to write a paragraph about yourself, and why we should sponsor you.

Tell us about your motives for becoming an athlete, some stories about yourself, and whatever else helps us get to know you. 


Now that you know what we are looking for, we'd would love for you to create a submission to become an Impact Sponsored Athlete.

My name is Dustin, I am a 32 year old BJJ fighter. First thing I want to say it, this is not a pity story. This is a hope to inspire story. Everyone on here has won some, everyone on here has lost some, that story for me is no different. But my story in itself is different. When I was born I weight 1lb 9oz, I was one of the most premature babies in the US and the world to survive pre-1988, so you can say I have been a fighter since day one. I was O2 dependent until I was 3, due to BPD, and if you don’t know what it is you can look it up, cause I damn sure do not know how to spell it. When I was 5 I was diagnosed with Legg Calve Perthese disease, a disease only 1% of the world has, but I had it in both hips, which 10% of that 1% get. So my fight continued. I did martials arts and wrestling when I wasn’t layed up in a hospital bed or confined to a wheelchair, and it is there where I found my solace. With 1 full functioning lung and bad hips, I pushed through, making practices, studying the arts, improving myself daily. I will never claim to be the best, nor will I ever be, but you would be hard pressed to find someone with more heart than I have. I want to inspire people, I want to be a face for inspiration and never giving up. I train 4 to 5 times a week, in pain, when I can barely lift my leg to get my shoe on, I train. I put on my gi, I put on my belt and I just forget about everything else. I severed an artery at work a few years back, put me out for awhile, but I never stopped studying or coaching. I coached wrestling teams and kids BJJ. I would be more than appreciative to where your gear proudly, not just on the mat, but off the mats as well, being a inspirational and honorable face for your merchandise. I wear one of your mouth guards now, also just ordered another one. I love the product more than anything I have previously had, wrestling, BJJ, striking, it covers all my bases. Peace. Love. Fight. like your mouth guard says, Peace of body and mind, Love every day and Fight with everything you have.

My name is Mark Young Jr. I’ve been training mma full time for 1 year. Before that I just floated around and fought off the couch. I always knew i wanted to be more involved in mma and now that I have a full time home gym i could not have asked for a better platform than the AFC to do so. Since I’ve started fighting I’ve had nothing but exciting fights and it seems like the crowd grows every time out. We have a massive fan base (2500plus) and I would love to show off your gear there and online. I would insanely appreciate any sponsorship support, especially from the best mouth piece company around. I truly believe I’m getting better every time and I always look to finish fights. I want to be the most exciting fighter on each and every card I’m on! I’m also in charge of The Funky Bunch kids jujitsu class at my local gym Powells Martial Arts Complex.I take alot of pride in my team and growing the sport in my area and especially seeing the kids improve everyday. It would be an honor and a privilege to represent impact mouthghards. We are the fastest growing promotion in the area and I look forward to growing with all of you! Thank you for your consideration!

I am the number #1 ranked professional heavyweight in Colorado. All heavyweights hit hard and having the write mouth piece when taking a big punch is the answer. I want to help you as much as much as you wanna help me. I believe that we can make a good time and make it work so that I help show your brand in Colorado more and do the very best I possibly can.

I am a martial artist who trains and compete in a variety of martial arts, such as: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, kickboxing, Muay Thai, boxing, Jeet Kune Do, and a few others. Many people believe or are misinformed and think that all mouth pieces are made the same or are universal. Different sports calls for different mouth pieces. I am a firm believer that high quality equipment such as an Impact mouthguard can make the world of difference in competition or in training. I am passionate about training in martial arts and the things that allows me to continuously train and do it safely. If I believe in something I have no problem and will greatly spread the word on what I believe in. I will do my best to help spread the word and inform people about Impact Custom Mouthguards and all the great benefits and services they offer. I believe that I will be able to hit a variety of people due to the wide audience I appeal to. I would love and greatly appreciate the opportunity to spread the word and become a Impact Custom Mouthguard sponsor. Thank you!
