The important thing is that youth program coordinators know they can recognize participation and reward individual and group achievements in a meaningful way.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
With summer sports wrapping up and fall coaches looking ahead to the upcoming season, now is the perfect time to find the right trophy or awards for participants in youth sports and summer programs.
“Shopping now as the sports seasons are switching over is a great way to take advantage of seasonal promotions and bulk purchase discounts,” said Mike Szczesny, vice president of Florida-based EDCO Specialties & Awards.
Appropriate awards can range from trophy cups and trophies to medals and ribbons. The right choice depends on a wide range of factors, including:
- Achievement to be honored
- Number of recipients
- Desired effect
Featuring a classic, recognizable look, trophy cups are a frequent favorite for team-wide achievements, Szczesny said, while custom trophies are often the top pick for recognizing outstanding individual accomplishments.
Ribbon awards and medal awards are the perennial choice for rewarding participation in sports, as well as any type of summer program, he said.
“The important thing is that youth program coordinators know they can recognize participation and reward individual and group achievements in a meaningful way that won’t destroy their budgets,” Szczesny said.
Program organizers seeking guidance can turn to Fort Lauderdale-based EDCO, the leading Internet provider of trophy awards, plaques, medals and other promotional materials, for assistance with their awards planning.
