A great method for keeping teens focused on something positive and staying out of trouble is to keep them active. Playing sports is ideal for staying active because you have to practice on a regular basis, as well as play against other teams in tournaments in an attempt to become the champions. Although schools often make playing various sports available to their students, such opportunities might not be available in small towns. If you want to help with keeping the teens active in your small town, consider putting together a few sports teams to play in tournaments. Use the content below as guidance for creating teams and preparing for tournaments to be played.
Find Players by Handing Out Fliers
Before you can carry out your plan, you must ensure that you can find enough players to create several teams. You might even have to find players in other small towns that are near the one that you live in. When you are ready to find players, it is a good idea to print out fliers so they can be handed out. You can also drive around and place the fliers in residential mailboxes, behind the windshield wipers on vehicles, or hang them on street poles. Get the fliers professionally printed if you are unable to complete the task on your own.
Invest in the Proper Uniforms
If you want the teens to feel confident and proud, it is a good idea to ensure that they have the proper uniforms for the type of sports team they are on. Don't create teams and simply tell the teens to wear a basic outfit of their choice, as it isn't professional. You must also keep in mind that uniforms are a necessity in some sports for safety reasons, such as wearing helmets and mouthguards while playing football. Hosting a fundraiser is the ideal way to raise money that can be put towards buying uniforms.
Prepare to Rent a Restroom Trailer
Unless there isn't a restroom available at the field that your teams will play their games on, you will need to rent a restroom trailer. Your teams and the visitors watching them pay will likely need to take restroom breaks. You can rent a restroom trailer that comes with multiple toilet stalls, sinks, and other handy features. The model of the trailer that you choose will play a role in the number of features available, as well as whether the restroom will look simple or fancy. Restroom trailers can be rented on a long or short-term basis.
