All participants of your youth horseshoe league should receive a shirt. Shirts can be a really fun aspect of the youth league. Let your imagination fly to brainstorm ideas, then run them past some kids to see what they think is cool. Some ideas include tie-dye, pop culture icons, fun or inspiring sayings, jerseys, etc. Besides fun, shirts can be customized for each team in the league, though this takes solid preparation ahead of the league and reduces flexibility to adjust on the go. Shirts should be handed out to the youth the same day that photographs will be taken.
The shirt is also a valuable marketing piece for your youth program and for the sponsors who support it. Kids wearing these shirts around your community a walking billboards spreading the marketing messages of the youth program and those who support youth programs. Adding the names of business sponsors to the shirt is well liked by most businesses.
