Your 2017 Back-To-School Spirit Wear Checklist (And How Fundraisers Can Help You Get Your Garments)
Weeks ago, you gathered up all the school supplies on your child’s classroom list and bought new shoes, pants, shirts, and sweaters to prepare for the year. But you may have forgotten one important back-to-school component: school pride clothing. Whether your teen plays on the lacrosse team, just got on the cheerleading squad, or simply wants to show their support for their peers, school spirit apparel is a must.
Fall is the perfect time to stock up on school spirit wear.
The big homecoming came will be here before you know it, so you’ll definitely need to start showing that school pride. Around 89% of school principals feel personally responsible for building school spirit and believe that school pride is actually tied to higher levels of student achievement. It’s easy to understand why building a strong community of engaged students can allow the entire school to succeed. You can start the year off right by having plenty of school spirit shirts, hoodies, bags, hats, and more for practices, games, and other community events. That way, the entire family will feel connected and invested.
Here’s the school spirit apparel you’ll need this year:
- Shirts (long-sleeved, short-sleeved, or tank)
- Sweatshirts (pull-over or zip-up)
- Pants (track or fleece)
- Hats (caps or beanies)
- Drawstring bags
- Outerwear (windbreaker jackets, fleece or puffer vests, and more)
What’s the best way to get your school spirit gear? Fundraising.
Now that you’ve determined which types of school spirit wear you’ll need, you need to go about getting it. One of the best ways to obtain new school sports apparel is fundraising. Not only can you get high-quality garments (screenprinted or embroidered, of course) that you’ll wear all year round, but you’ll support your school or a cause you care about in the process. When you need to raise money for your team or club, school apparel fundraising is by far the most effective way to do it.
You can even set up an online team spirit store and allow your customers to take advantage of our “Order Together, Pay Separate” feature to make the entire process even easier. Instead of stressing about order forms and late payments, everyone can place their orders on their own but will receive them all at the same time. That means fundraising will be quicker and those who order will be able to start wearing their garments sooner. And with so many school events right around the corner, that’s truly a win/win.
