Sandcastle Classic is OPEN! 

Register Your Team Here

Space is limited and we are accepting a total of 30 teams for the 2019 Sandcastle Classic.

Teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, corporations, and local elementary school students work together to build giant sand sculptures. The funds raised by teams and sponsors make it possible for Leap to continue to provide arts programs to Bay Area students.


How To Form A Team:

1. Identify your team members.

Identify your company partners and partner school. Most teams are comprised of 3-5 company partners and one classroom at a partner school. Members of your team will visit the class, and work directly with students to design your castle, which you will then build together with the students on the beach. Leap encourages you to work with students that we serve through our arts education programs. If you have any questions on how to form a team, or would like assistance partnering with other companies or a partner school, please contact Leap. We’re happy to help match you.

2. Register & get acquainted

Complete the team registration form. You do not need to have all the details of your team finalized in order to register: like your team name, final team make-up, etc. Read through the info on the Team Participation Guide and sub-tabs, reach out to the Leap team with any questions.

3. Submit your team’s $500 registration fee.

As soon as you receive a link to your team’s fundraising page from Leap, submit your registration fee. This fee solidifies your team’s registration, and will count towards meeting your fundraising efforts. 

4. Identify roles and responsibilities.

Work with your other team members to determine how to divide up the different responsibilities and projects. Think about your team members’ different interests, strengths, and capacities and match them with corresponding roles. Visit here for ideas on how to divide and conquer.

5. Donate and/or raise a minimum of $4,000.

Most teams are comprised of several companies working together and normally exceed this amount. Although the minimum to raise per team is $4,000, we encourage teams to set a fundraising goal of $10,000 or more in order to meet the event’s larger campaign goals. 

6. Provide your own supplies/materials

to build the sandcastle at the event. Review a list of suggested tools.

7. Send at least two representatives

(or more) from your team to all Sandcastle Classic related events and workshops.
