Offering an incentive-based rewards program in conjunction with great family entertainment can only enhance this educational experience for students, teachers and families alike!

The Timber Rattlers host an annual golf outing at Shamrock Heights Golf Course in New London. Proceeds from the event benefit the Timber Rattlers Give Back Foundation to support the team’s community programs and charitable causes in the Fox Valley.
The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and TDS are partnering with area law enforcement officers to hand out tickets this summer. Don’t worry. These are the good kind of tickets though as this is the return of the You've Been Ticketed program.
The goal of the program is to encourage safe and responsible behavior in the young people of the Fox Cities. Kids who are "caught" in a responsible act - such as wearing a bike helmet, observing pedestrian rules, or helping with a neighborhood cleanup - will receive one free ticket to a Timber Rattlers baseball game. A total of 225 tickets will be distributed during the summer.
Timber Rattlers 50/50 Raffle presented by Plexus gives you the chance to leave the Timber Rattlers game a Winner! Fans can purchase 50/50 tickets during every home game throughout the 2022 season. Ticket sales will begin when gates open and close at the end of the 7th inning. You can check the gross prize amount on the main scoreboard throughout the game. 50% of the proceeds will be given to one lucky winner, and the other to Timber Rattlers Give Back. The winning number will be posted on the video board at the conclusion of the 8th inning.
"Get Fit with Whiff" was created in partnership with the YMCA of the Fox Cities to teach kids the importance of daily exercise and proper nutrition. Whiffer visits each YMCA location during the summer for a fun, short program to get kids moving. Activities include Zumba, kickball, and "Whifferball."
The Timber Rattlers host four youth clinics during the season that allows baseball players ages 8-12 the opportunity to play at Fox Cities Stadium and receive instruction from Timber Rattlers players and coaches. The youth clinics cover baseball basics such as fielding, hitting, and sliding.
The Timber Rattlers want to recognize an area charitable organization at every Wisconsin Timber Rattlers home game during the season. The program allows one charitable organization per game the opportunity to have a presence at the ballpark for purposes of educating Rattler fans about their organization and increasing awareness about their cause.
A unique initiative with the purpose of beautifying the ballpark and strengthening community support is the Timber Rattlers Garden for the Community. The Timber Rattlers have teamed up with GreenStone Farm Credit Services and the Freedom High School FFA to "Grow a Row for St. Joe's." The donation of produce helps broaden the nutritional options for St. Joe's client families and offset their produce budget. The St. Joseph Food Program is a nonprofit that for over 35 years has made weekly distributions of fresh food and non-perishable items to the elderly, working poor and temporarily unemployed in the Fox Valley.
