Kicking off with the basketball season last fall, the 6th Man Club aims to connect the team with the fans. A supportive fan base is a key component of the continued growth and success of any team. The 6th Man club is a great way to get involved with the team. Membership is available to anyone and there is no time limit to join.
Since this program began in the fall, the focus is getting the word out and gaining new members. The annual membership fee is $75 per person or $125 per couple. The cost to join benefits the Lions summer scholarship fund. The program has socials that connect team and fan in an off-the-court setting, and allows some face to face time that is beneficial to athletes and fans alike.
There is also monthly newsletter that keeps fans informed of upcoming meetings and a Facebook page for fan-atic followers of UA Fort Smith Men’s Basketball program.
