How to Participate in the Toonie Toss

  1. Your coach or team parent should have given you your pledge sheet (If not, please contact them ASAP - before Apr 20th)
  2. Write down your PIN (personal identification number) on each of the pledge sheet's stickers
  3. Put a sticker on each toonie ($2 coin)

Use the identification number attached to your sheet. The numbers identify the toonie collected and the letters are an abbreviation of what division you play in with your name's initials. This example is from the Blastball division and the name is Tommy Smith.

How The Game is Played

Each player will flip/toss/throw all the toonies they've collected at home plate (throwing distance will vary based on division).

Collect as many toonies as you can. The more you collect the more chances you will have to win prizes. It's mandatory that every player collect a minimum $20. That's only ten toonies!

Prizes

  • Top toonie collector for entire organization - $100
  • Middle of Home Plate Sticker - $50
  • Each Corner of Home Plate Stickers - $25 each (five to win)

Also, for every 25 toonies collected you'll get an opportunity to draw a prize from the prize bucket. There's a variety of prizes like cash and concession stand vouchers. And the team that collects the most money will win a pizza party!

How Do I Register My Pledge Sheet?

Come into the batting cage and see one of our awesome volunteers with all your toonies and your pledge form. Make sure your form is filled out and that all your toonies are labeled correctly (with your personal identification number). This will be only way for us to determine if you're a winner. Don't forget your toonies!
