Pep rallies are always a great time. A gymnasium or stadium full of cheering crowds is a great asset to any sports team. T-shirts and other printed fan gear will pump up the crowd and make the best of the pep rally.
T-Shirts are always a pep rally favorite. A crowd decked out in the right apparel will really excite all of the members of the team. The sight of a crowd decorated in their support is a tremendous motivator. The best way to outfit a cheering crowd is with colored t-shirts. These t-shirts could be in a variety of all school colors or otherwise a crowd wearing only one school color throughout. This is a popular practice known as a “White Out,” as white t-shirts are often used to intimidate the away team on game day. The crowd of united fans all in one color makes a bold statement of support at a pep rally as well. Encourage fans to dress in school colors or hand out free t-shirts at the door. It is also fun for the crowd and pep squad to throw out a few t-shirts to fans in the audience. These shirts become hot commodities when thrown out to adoring fans.
Any variety of t-shirt will be perfect for any of the above scenarios. One example is the Gildan 2000 6.1 oz. Ultra Cotton T-Shirt. A true bonus of this style is the wide variety of sixty-six colors. This array of colors is bound to have a perfect match for every school color in creating a “White Out” in any color. In throwing out fan t-shirts, maybe choose a hot pink or another color that is not a school color, so the t-shirt winners will stand out in the crowd and have an extra special keepsake after the game. This particular Gildan variety is 100% cotton for a nice lightweight and breathable feel, and it is available in eight sizes ranging from S-5XL.
Fan gear does not stop at t-shirts. Any kind of spirit supplies really get a crowd pumped, and towels are perfect for sporting events. Throw them out to the crowds or hand them out at the door. Towels, like foam fingers, are an extension of the arm and a perfect item to wave to cheer with extra enthusiasm. The Anvil T101 Fringed Spirit Towel makes a perfect spirit item. This Anvil towel is 100% sheared cotton terry with fringed ends. At 11”x18,” it is the ideal size for fan fun. It is available in six basic colors, meant to match every team! The towels can be embroidered or screen printed with team info or a slogan, or simply left blank to make a strong statement with color only.
Baseball caps also work very well for sporting event crowds. Hats can be a very profitable item to sell to fans, and they make highly coveted items when thrown out into the crowd. Embroidered, screen printed, or otherwise, baseball caps look great when embellished with team information. The Harriton M835 Brushed Cotton Twill Baseball Cap is a wonderful choice when looking for a basic baseball cap with a wide variety of colors. It is 100% brushed cotton twill with six panels and a self fabric closure. This baseball cap also has moisture-wicking to fight the effects of perspiration.
Pep rallies are all about having fun while cheering on a team. The distribution of blank apparel in corresponding colors, or any color of embellished apparel will always add extra spirit to any crowd. Go team!
