In It to Earn It™ is a funding program of Youth Sports Media, Inc. (YSM) created for the benefit of 501(c)(3) local non-profit youth sports leagues. The In It to Earn It™ (IITEI) program provides funding to qualifying youth sports leagues who register in the IITEI program. Funding for each registered league is then earned by that league when their players, parents or legal guardians and coaches become free members of YSPN360.com and access the instructional and educational sports content on that web site.
Leagues: Leagues are defined as; All local non-profit youth baseball, softball, and soccer leagues and league organizations (leagues) located within a county, metro area, city or township in the United States with 501(c)(3) federal tax status are eligible to register and participate in the YSM In It to Earn It™ (IITEI) program. National youth sports governing bodies are not eligible to register or earn funds from YSM through the IITEI program.
Participants: All players, their parents or legal guardians, and coaches who are active participants in an eligible League registered with IITEI after January 1, 2018 are eligible to register in the IITEI program. Funds distributed to leagues during this part of the IITEI program will be based only on registration by registered players.
Please carefully read the Terms and Conditions for INDIVIDUAL REGISTRATION, LEAGUE REGISTRATION and PARTICIPATION below.
Registration for the IITEI program at YSPN360.com by qualifying local youth sports leagues and organizations as defined above will begin on January 1, 2018. All league and individual IIETI program memberships by participating players, parents or guardians, and coaches of registered teams must be completed by April 1, 2018.
In order for a youth baseball, softball, or soccer league to become eligible to receive funds from YSM, the league must register as an IITEI participating league. League IITEI Registration is available only at the YSPN360.com web site where a special IITEI youth league Registration Page has been established. Registration instructions are provided on the YSPN360.com web site. When each league’s eligibility is verified, that registered youth league will receive a unique League Identification Number (League ID) from YSM.
After a qualifying non-profit league is registered with IITEI, the participating players, parents or guardians, and coaches of that league must register for a free YSPN360.com membership and enter their league’s unique League ID number where indicated. 10% of the league’s players, parents and coaches must be members of YSPN360.com for their league to receive funding. If a team player, parent or coach of a registered youth league is already a member of the YSPN360.com web site, that individual must sign up again to participate in the IITEI program, using their league’s unique LEAGUE ID number.
PARTICIPATION AND FUNDING:
Youth sports organizations that complete their IITEI registration will become eligible to receive funding from the aggregate activity of their members on the YSPN360.com. Members of registered IITEI Partners who sign up for a YSPN360.com membership must include their Organization’s IITEI Partner ID in the membership registration process to be eligible.
Membership eligibility in the IITEI program will be determined by individual e-mail address and inclusion of the appropriate and correct unique Partner ID number. Each IITEI member must be registered from a separate e-mail address. Individual membership registration must include the unique Partner ID number, as assigned by YSM, and can be obtained from the league office or team coach or whichever source is deemed appropriate by the registered IITEI organization.
Registered IITEI Partners agree to hold YSM harmless in the event a member or members (players, parents, coaches, etc.) of their organization, who are provided their organization’s unique IITEI Partner ID number by their organization, and fail to input their organization’s unique IITEI Partner ID number during their YSPN360.com registration process. YSM does not allow retroactive tracking of member activity in the event of member failure to input their IITEI Partner ID number during the membership registration process. In addition, registered IITEI Partners agree and understand that YSM does not distribute or provide access to IITEI Partner ID numbers or current or potential members of YSPN360.com. This ID number can only be acquired by a youth sports organization registering in the IITEI program and are solely responsible for the distribution of that unique IITEI number to their participants and members.
Upon registration, each respective youth sports organization agrees that funds provided to the registered organization by YSM under the IITEI program are charitable contributions and are not paid in kind for any benefit provided for or to respective organization or in exchange for any free web site content access under the registration agreement of individual YSPN360.com memberships. YSM reserves the future right to change, modify, or extend the dates, requirements and funding structure of the IITEI program.
DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS:
Fund distribution from YSM to registered IITEI Partners will be made quarterly directly to each respective registered IITEI Partner. All distributions are accrued through each IITEI Partner’s participants activity on the YSPN360.com site. This activity includes videos and page views and all other consumption of content at YSPN360.com only. YSM will pool 10% of Company net advertising and sponsorship revenue and distribute these funds based on the overall usage from each registered IITEI Partner organization.
YSM tracks activity on YSPN360.com by IITEI partner ID number. YSM does not track activity on its site by individual nor does it store data on the activities of individuals.
Please Note: All earned league funds from member participation in the IITEI program and activity on the YSPN360.com website will accrue beginning with the first member signup from each organization. Each IITEI Partner’s quarterly payments will begin when a minimum of $25 is earned by participating IITEI Partner’s participants activity on the YSPN360.com web site. If $25 is not achieved by the end of a calendar quarter, the IITEI Partner’s funds will be carried over to the next quarter and paid once $25 in site activity has been accrued.
USE OF FUNDS:
There are no restrictions on use of funds by registered IITEI Partners once they are received, except where state or local regulation of the use of charitable donations applies. Each youth sports league should check these regulations before registering with the IITEI program.
The IITEI program is open to all non-profit baseball, softball and soccer leagues located in the United States. All IITEI-registered members of YSPN360.com are required to provide truthful information and YSM will reject and delete any registration that it determines to be false or fraudulent. YSM may disqualify any league from payment of IITEI funds accrued from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements of team membership of that registered league. YSPN360.com memberships by players, parents and coaches from leagues not registered with IITEI will not be eligible to earn funds, and registered leagues who solicit YSPN360.com memberships from individuals outside of their respective leagues will automatically waive their distribution of funds that may have accrued through the IITEI program.
PROMOTION BY YSM OF REGISTERED LEAGUES:
