Georgia State is inviting young Panther fans to become part of the team and the Georgia State family by joining a club named after the popular mascot of Georgia State Athletics, Pounce. There are many initiatives out there that try to get kids off the couch and into sports, but this one offers so much more.
Pounce’s Kids Club is open to any boy or girl currently in the eighth grade or lower. Members will receive an official t-shirt, membership card, monthly activity guide, birthday card, FREE tickets to select home games, a 10 percent discount at all GSU Bookstore locations including the Georgia Dome and Sports Arena, chances to participate in special contests, and unique in-game activities. Many feel that by introducing kids to sports through programs like this will encourage them to give different sports a try.
Pounce’s Kids Club allows youth across the nation to experience many behind the scenes benefits, including facilities tours, exclusive autograph sessions, “Chalk Talk” with coaches and special skills clinics with GSU student-athletes. Georgia State is committed to strengthening the bond between its student-athletes, the community and our young fans through the creation of this kids club.
Many families in and around the Atlanta area don’t realize that Georgia State plays intercollegiate athletics at the highest level in sports like football, basketball, tennis and now even, beach volleyball. The games are exciting and it’s affordable to take a family to a Georgia State athletic event.
“Pounce’s Kids Club is a fantastic opportunity to get an inside look at Georgia State Athletics and to get up close and personal with our coaches and student-athletes,” said GSU Assistant AD for Marketing Matt Newhouse. “Our goal is to allow our young fans to truly experience this exciting time for Georgia State Athletics and this great university.”
Special Kids Club events will be held throughout the year where members will receive free admission to various events while having the opportunity to experience unique activities, such as being on the field for a football game, serving as a ball kid for a men’s or women’s basketball game, and taking part in exclusive autograph sessions.
Each year Kids Club members will be invited to celebrate Pounce’s Birthday with a party in December at which they can meet GSU student-athletes and have fun with their friends.
To register a child for Pounce’s Kids Club, head on over to the Georgia State Athletics website here and sign up using any major credit card, check, or cash. The cost is only $10 per child and the benefits are well worth it. For more information, contact the Panther Sports Marketing office at 404-413-4171 PouncesKidsClub@gsu.edu.
