End of Season Soccer Trophies

Soccer Trophies

Awesome Soccer Trophies

As you might imagine, we are asked a lot about soccer trophies. We don’t actually sell trophies directly, but we have a relationship and can recommend from personal experience, Dinn Trophy. I’ve used them to create the trophies for our soccer tournament and it worked out great – fast turnaround and free shipping. At the end of the day, I thought it was downright cheap and felt really good about the value I received (and I do this for a living, so I’m pretty skeptical).

To Trophy or Not To Trophy?

Soccer trophies can spark a hot debate. Some communities see them as “bad” while others see them as “good”. People in our offices have various opinions on soccer trophies. It is something we debate from time to time. There are some people that love the idea of participant trophies at younger ages. Others are just as passionate about the potential for “rewarding non-excellence.”

On awarding Championship trophies, people are just as fired up. People believe it puts the focus on winning over player development. They argue, “If the focus is on player development, isn’t it communicating another message to give trophies?” Still, others in the office believe a Championship is the result of hard work and should be recognized and rewarded.

And, the final piece of the debate rests on individual trophies. When should awards like “Most Valuable” and “Most Improved” come into play? Is this a competitive or a recreational trophy? Ultimately, the “right” answer rests in your own community standards and expectations. And, hopefully, it reflects the values you are cultivating as a club and organization. Usually communities will ask the following questions while considering the whether soccer trophies are right for them:

  • What age?
  • Participant only?
  • Championship only?
  • Trophy only or do medals, plaques or ribbons fit the bill?
  • Individual Trophies? Most Valuable Player, Most Improved
  • Cost Factor: How much to spend?

How does your community handle soccer trophies, awards and ribbons? How does that reflect your values as a soccer community?

    Thank you, I really was beginning to believe that your company didn't exist, but after talking to you yesterday, ordering, and then receiving the socks today in time to pass them out to the girls during their lunch; I do believe your company is amazing! The boys team saw the socks and wanted a pair, the other team's coach ask where I got them, but best of all the girls felt great in their uniforms with their new socks. We lost our game, but play well. Thanks again for getting us the socks so quickly!
