Planning the annual team awards dinner many times is the responsibility of the booster club, so booster club parents, here is an article for you! Sometimes it is a matter of team tradition as to where this end of season function is held. But of course.. it can also be a matter of available funds. All of the booster clubs I have been involved with, hold these sports team dinners out a catering hall venue. The kids are all spiffed up, the parents, the coaches and school administration are also in attendance. These should be fun and energized events but sadly I have been in attendance at some long, boring and tedious dinners. You do not want that reputation for your club...so get to work and make your team awards banquet a fun, energized and enthusiastic event with these ideas.
While plaques, trophies and team apparel are all great gifts, one of the favorites were the photo collage mugs we made for the seniors. We asked parents to email me us their best digital photos of the games and from there created a collage for each senior and put it into a mug. They were such a big hit at our team awards dinners, that we had other booster clubs calling asking us to help them make ones for their seniors. They are easy and inexpensive but a wonderful fun album of their final season.Here's all the information you need to make these collage mugs for your team
In addition to the usual program outlining the team awards dinner itinerary, add a page that tells your guests what your organization accomplished for the team with the monies that were raised. This is great public relations for your club and even the kids are amazed at all that is given back to their sports team.
Consider assigning seats at your team awards dinner. You can do the tables by team or by specific names. It is a bit more work, but actually assigned seats make most people feel more comfortable when they arrive. They don't have to go looking for a place to sit. Late arrivals can enter and find their seats without disruption.
