Reward Student Athlete Accomplishments On and Off the Field

Posted by  Ryan Willi on 09/18/2017

Hard work and dedication are two characteristics required to succeed as a high school or collegiate athlete. Student athletes must master the art of juggling — from conditioning and practice to classwork and tests. It is important to reward their dedication and recognize the hard-earned achievements of your players.


Add-A-Name Boards are a great way to recognize these athletes. An Add-a-Name Board is a custom-designed sign that features an ongoing list of achievements. The most common types of boards we make are used to honor state champions and placers, all-state athletes and hall-of-fame inductees. We also have many customers use Add-A-Name Boards for academic successes such as GPA or National Merit Scholar honors.


One of the key features of an athlete recognition board is the ability to update it as new victories are achieved. When putting together a custom layout, Team Fitz designers try to allow for approximately ten years of future growth. Some very successful years or some lean years can shorten or extend the time it takes to fill the board.

We feel ten years ensures your board does not fill too quickly, but at the same time does not look empty for the next two decades. In the end, how much room to leave is of course up to you. When an update is needed, simply give us a call or shoot us an email and we send out an easy-to-apply update which applies much like a sticker. All updates are pre-spaced to ensure an easy, no-measure application.


A common concern our customers have when purchasing an Add-a-Name Board is durability. This is understandable as you want to make sure your board is going to hold up for the long haul. Our boards start with vibrantly-printed graphics on high-performance vinyl which is then topped with a protective laminate. This laminate features a matte finish to reduce the glare produced by fluorescent lighting commonly found in schools and athletic facilities.

Our boards also contains a UV filter to protect against the color fade which most-often occurs in outdoor signage. Lastly we offer two different substrate options, aluminum and PVC. PVC is a great sign material for indoor applications whereas aluminum offers additional durability and won’t warp in the extreme hot and cold of the outdoors.


Take the time to honor your top athletes with a long-lasting physical tribute for all students and alumni to see now and in the future. Team Fitz has helped countless schools across the country develop athlete recognition signage.
