The benefits went beyond learning how to dribble, pass and shoot - it was a way to make friends, stay active and learn valuable lessons like teamwork and good sportsmanship. After recently joining an adult rec soccer league, I realized that not much has changed. Playing a team sport is still a great way to meet people; it's a welcomed escape from my oft-mundane gym routine and nothing beats the feeling of being a part of a team - although, admittedly, I'm still working on that whole losing graciously bit. Rekindling my love of soccer has made me even more aware of the amazing opportunity available to team and spiritwear suppliers and decorators out there. By serving these markets - whether youth or adult - you're part of the team too, outfitting players with apparel that is more than a uniform; it's a memory. (I still have a box of old tournament championship T-shirts, and I hope to add to the pile when my friends and I win our end-of-season tournament. Fingers crossed!). To make sure you're meeting the expectations of the sports and spiritwear organizations in your area, see page 12 for Josh Ellsworth's take on the trends that are dominating today's team uniforms. Also, check out page 18 for tips from Courtney Kubitza on putting together team packages designed for any league - be it baseball or soccer, recreational or travel, youth or adult. And for a glance at a shop that's doing it right, see page 6 to learn about the happenings at Just Imagine Spiritwear. It's time to evaluate your offering, make sure you're taking advantage of the diverse opportunities this market has to offer and get back in the game!
