Any thoughts on a club team being listed as a sponsor for a scholastic team ?

Interesting question. I can guess a few teams this could be referring to. In the ever growing world of club teams we need be reminded club teams are a business. Sure we all sign up with the thought the coaches all really want our child and have only their best interest in mind. However, at the end of the day they are doing it to make money. It is a job.
The sponsorships are ways to build relationships with elite teams and build feeder programs. Do I agree, no neccessarily, but is it a good business tactic? Sure.
I am not certain there is a team out there that would turn away a donation to their program. The reality is that this is the current travel team world. Relationships, alumni, coaches, and formers all keep programs running.
