When you manage or coach a youth sports team in your community, it's nice to put in some extra effort to make your organization feel more structured and professional. There are many different ways to accomplish this goal, but one is by visiting a local printing company and having a large vinyl banner-style sign printed. This sign, which can feature your team name and logo, website, and even a list of your players and their uniform numbers, can then be used in a number of different applications. Here are some ideas that are suitable for the use of this vinyl sign.
Displaying During Games And Tournaments
One of the benefits of a vinyl sign is that it can be easily rolled up and carried with you. This benefit can allow you to display the sign during various games and tournaments that you attend. Make sure to get the printing company to install grommets on the corners of the sign, as they'll come in handy for stringing the sign up. For example, if you coach a youth baseball league, you can carry the sign with you to an out-of-town tournament and hang it on the chain-link fencing at the rear of your dugout. This will not only send a clear message about which team you are, but can make your players feel confident because their team looks "professional."
Carrying In Parades
Youth sports teams will often find themselves in parades in their community, whether it's a Santa Claus parade in the winter or a fall parade involving various community groups. This sign will come in handy at these events to help advertise your organization. If your team is walking in the parade, a number of players can carry the banner in front of them. If you've got a float on which the players are sitting, the sign can be affixed to the float.
Using At Recruitment Events
If your team has recruitment events in the community in advance of the season, the sign can be used to add a professional look at your booth or table. For example, if you have some tables set up at a local community fair to raise the profile of your organization and hopefully attract some players, you can hang the sign from the front of the tables. This sends a better message about your organization than simply using a handwritten piece of cardboard, and might be the difference in having some young athletes sign up with your organization.
