Small items like patches are also good non-traditional options. As kids begin to mature into their sport of choice, it becomes less about rewarding the simple act of participating and more about skills, training, and teamwork. At this level, awards are more focused on achievement. So, while traditional trophies are still acceptable, other types of awards become relevant like achievement certificates, plaques, T-shirts, patches, and water bottles. These non-traditional products open up a whole world of embellishment possibilities. Many kids will continue participating in team sports as they grow and mature. The teams and leagues become more com- petitive. Kids learn about goal setting and determination and leadership. Traditional awards are more focused on individual achievements (MVP-type awards) and team success. But let's not forget that the life lessons learned at this level are still wor- thy of recognition. A wider range of options include rings, tow- els, clothing, bags, power banks, high-end water bottles, and picture frames along with banners and pennants. One way to di- versify your sports award items is to offer full-color per- sonalization. (Image courtesy Unisub) FREE SHIPPING on Orders Over $99! Big News at Lawson Screen & Digital Products!
