PLAYER APPEARANCE REQUEST

 


Policies and Procedures

The Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club appreciates the passion of Rider fans and we thank all those who have supported us both on and off the field. In conjunction with our community efforts, Roughrider players, The 620 CKRM Rider Cheerleading Team members, Gainer the Gopher as well as our coaching and administrative staff are available for a variety of community and corporate appearances in Regina and throughout the province of Saskatchewan.


Please read the following information in regards to requesting a player, coach and/or executive administration appearance. We receive hundreds of requests and will do our best to respond to each one. We require time to properly review, accept and facilitate an appearance so we only accept requests that are received 6-8 weeks prior to the event date.

Players, Coaches, and Executive Administration

Criteria:
The special bond between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the community is never more apparent than when coaches and players volunteer their time at schools, hospitals and other community events and programs. We highly recommend that appearances are used as an enhancement or an incentive of an event and not viewed as an event itself. Special consideration will be given to the requests that involve direct interaction with kids; non-profit and charitable organizations; motivational or educational speaking roles; and publicity events. One-hour appearances are preferred. Paid promotional appearances can vary in length with most scheduled no more than two hours. 

Making a Request:
If you are looking for a player or coach to make a difference at your event, email community@saskriders.com or send a written request on business letterhead to:

Fees:
Compensation is determined on a case by case basis. Factors considered include number of attendees, length of appearance, the nature of event and location. If travelling away from Regina, accommodations and travel are to be arranged and expensed by the requesting organization. 

Availability:
During the CFL season, players and coaches are not available on the day of a game, or the day before and after. Check the schedule for more information.
During the off season, player availability is limited due to other commitments and the number of players located within the province during these months. We will do our best to provide the player or coach requested but it is by no means guaranteed and we will contact you with the change in details if need be.

Gainer the Gopher

Our beloved mascot is also available for public appearances and promotions. He would like to inform you that he is unable to speak at events since gophers can’t speak! If you would like for him to attend your event, please email community@saskriders.com with a formal, written request.

2. Date of the event
