Little league teams allow children to have fun while staying active, making new friends and learning how to work with others for success as a team. All of that fun and learning is the result of hard work put in by many adults, often unpaid volunteers and parents who want the program to succeed for the kids. If you are one of those volunteers or you are paid to organize a little league program, customized t-shirts are an essential tool that you cannot overlook.
Most little league programs utilize custom t-shirts as a way to recognize community sponsors giving up their money to allow the program to operate. Each team is assigned a sponsor, and that sponsor’s name is advertised on each t-shirt for that team.
When trying to convince potential sponsors to donate to your program, telling them that their company name will be on each child’s back is a big selling point. Businesses want to support community youth programs like little league, but they need a good reason to justify investing the money. The free advertising that comes with their names on those shirts is the reason most of them need to consider it a justified business expense.
Mark the Teams
Custom printed t-shirts also serve to differentiate between teams when they are on the field. Each team is assigned a different color shirt and those shirts. Each shirt is printed with numbers on the back, and often children can have their last names added to the backs of the shirts as well. Sponsor information, team logos, and various other symbols can be added to the shirts to create even more differentiation between teams.
Remember the Season
Once the little league season has passed, children will continue to wear their printed t-shirts. They will keep them to remember winning seasons and friends they made out on the field. For some kids, these shirts become memorabilia that they keep for many years, even after they no longer fit properly. All kids have a use for old t-shirts, and parents appreciate sports shirts because they always have something for their kids to wear out to play.
Customized t-shirts are essential for successful little league operations. Not only do children look forward to getting their shirt each season, but the shirts make it easier to organize teams and keep the program running efficiently
