4. Provide players with Pledge Request Sheet
Your team needs to recruit pledges, so we have provided a sheet that players can used to recruit family and friends.

Return this sheet to the coach or the person running your Dig-A-Thon.
5. Start Digging!
Coach on One (Pit Drill): One player at a time will be given 1 minute to complete as many digs as they can! Unlike traditional Pit Drill, touches don’t count unless they are playable digs. Don’t forget to keep track of your digs as you go so you can record them in your Dig Total Sheet! Your team can do this as many times as you would like, and players can use their best score!

After the Dig-A-Thon has been completed, return this spreadsheet to The Side-Out Foundation by emailing Josh Bryant or mailing it in with with any check donations.
6. Collect Your Pledge Donations
After you have counted up your digs, players should fill out the Donation Request Letter and give them to those who made a pledge. Pledges can donate directly to your online campaign page or write a check to The Side-Out Foundation for your team to mail in.
