Locker rooms are no longer simply a place to dress for a game, it’s a second home to most athletes. It’s a place to celebrate wins, reflect on losses and build friendships that last a lifetime. Your school locker room should reflect your program’s tradition, it’s season-long goals and who you aspire to be as a program on and off the field. Traditionally, only the top-tier programs have been able to accomplish this in cool and unique ways. Not anymore.
Below are the top 4 finishing touches to any high school locker room that will help motivate your athletes to be their best without breaking your budget.
In addition to organizing your locker room, locker nameplates are a fast and easy way to promote team pride and offer a professional look. Slide-in nameplates with metal brackets are the most popular with coaches. The slide-in strips can be easily updated yearly, while the brackets can be used year after year. Other options include magnets and budget-friendly decal locker tags.
CUSTOM COACHES WHITEBOARD
A custom whiteboard can be a great tool to help coaches visually illustrate plays and quickly convey their message to their team. The most popular style are field & court dry erase boards which include an image of a field or court printed directly on the board. For example, a basketball dry erase board might have a full court and a couple half court illustrations. They can even be set up to look just like your home court or field.
These custom dry erase boards can be made for any sport and can even include multiple different sport fields for shared locker rooms. If wall space is limited, a mobile dry erase board is another option. A mobile board not only has the benefit of being double sided, but can also be wheeled from place to place such as the locker room to the court.
As a coach, you want your players to stay focused and inspired. Locker room motivational signs can help keep your message front and center even when you’re not in the room. Motivational signs are an easy and inexpensive way to make your locker room look more professional.
Small signs can make a big difference in a locker room, but there is no substitute for oversized wall murals when you really want to make a statement. Whether you are interested in adding instant color to a new building or rejuvenating an older space, Team Fitz designers will create a custom design for your program's large format graphic.
Keep in mind that there is no need to cover every square inch. You can often times get maximum impact with graphics placed in one or two key high traffic locations in your athletic facility.
