Fox Canada receives many inquiries about sponsorship. However, there are only a select amount of sponsorship opportunities with Fox Canada. With only very few spots available to be on the Fox Team each season (3-5 Amateur riders per season), our selection process is a “scouting” strategy rather than the traditional “application” strategy.
Notifications and contact with the rider and family for the upcoming season sponsorships are done in October.
How do you increase your chances of catching the eye of our Rider Support Department while contesting in your series? Here are some general tips and advice;
At the events, be sure that you and your crew act like professionals at all times. Our Rider Support team is constantly traveling, attending all the major amateur events and some lesser- known events as well. They purposely do NOT advertise who they are many times, but they're out there and they notice athletes and crews who conduct themselves in a professional manner. Fox Racing is only interested in elite athletes who will represent our company with professionalism and dignity. If you're competing at a national amateur event, presume that a Fox Racer scout is watching you and act accordingly.
Who has the best chance of getting sponsored? Results are the bottom line. If you're in the top five in the amateur nationals in your sport, you're going to catch the eye of our scouts. If you aren't quite there yet, you may still send in your application material to help raise awareness for yourself, but chances are BEST when you are in the top 5.
“Awareness Applications” for our scouts are accepted via postal service only. Do not e-mail or fax in your resume. Mail your application material to:
Fox Head Canada
ATTN: Rider Support
58 Aero Drive, Unit 113
All material should be presented in a professional manner. Take the time to do a spell/grammar check and be sure everything is legible. If you have illegible handwriting, type everything or print it out from a computer. Don't make the Rider Support guys struggle to read your material. Bind everything in an orderly fashion.
Your “Awareness Application” packet should include these items:
Resume with past results
Two or three letters of reference from teachers, coaches, community/church leaders, employers (volunteer work DOES count)
Report card (if still in school)
One action photo of you (wearing Fox gear doesn't hurt)
One head and shoulders photo (school photo will do)
