Softball Awards

Casual Awards

Keep creativity as the top priority to design an award certificate. The softball game is not played only by professional players. It is played for fun. Hence consider designing the award to make it a light moment.

Personalized Awards

Understand the players and personalize the awards. Focus on individual players to design an award. Make awards based on their victories and are of strength. For instance given an award like ‘Expected to shatter a window.’ There are 9 players in softball with 3 substitute players. You can think of making awards/certificates for each individual identifying their talents by talking to them and their coach.

Think differently

Never bother to change the not so traditional items into certificates/awards. It is not a must to use a parchment fancy paper certificate to print the name. Themes related to softball and softball equipment like signed bats or balls should be ideal.

Though we all love to be awarded at the same time we become badly insulted when we are not awarded. While we fail to understand the fact that we are not exceptional and hence not awarded. To overcome this conflict and to boost the player’s spirit we can add some fun in the awards either by having a funny designed card or by writing humorous wordings in the certificates. We can even purchase some funny items and award them to individuals based on their interest and unique qualities.

Components of Softball Achievement Certificates

Let us understand about those components and their importance.

  1. Text Element
  2. Graphic Element

Text Element includes the title, presentation line, and recipient, from, description, date, and signature.

All the names mentioned under the text element are self-explanatory. Let me just highlight few guidelines to place these components.

The title describes the award name, typically Softball Achievement Award or it comes with the sponsor’s name like British Softball Federation’s Softball Achievement Award.

Presentation Line comes next to the title in the format as follows. This certificate is issued to [RECIPIENT] on [DATE] by [FROM]

Space is provided in most certificates at the bottom for the signature.
