Branded merchandise is a great way to promote your club, event, sponsors or brand, so in this blog we outline 5 must have athletics merchandise items.
At Red Oak Teamwear, our high-quality products are customised with your logo and branding, so you can stand out from the competition.
If you’re hoping to outrun your competitors on and off the track, branded merchandise can provide a big boost in promotion.
Having a range of items available for sale allows your members to support the club through fundraising. It also means when your members are using the items outside of training and competitions, they’re providing free advertising for your club.
Below are our five must-have items for athletics members.
1. Club polo
Club polos are one of the best ways to promote your sponsors and your club, and can be worn by all athletes, supporters and coaching staff.
Any number of logos can be included on our shirts without any extra cost, because the ink used to dye the polo is “sublimated” into the material. We have more than 300 standard sublimation colours at Red Oak, meaning we can guarantee colour consistency with your brand.
Our custom digital printed towels are becoming a new favourite for clubs.
Why? A towel is not just great to sit on while supporting athletes or used to wipe off the sweat, it’s also a great banner that supporters can hold up to celebrate the club.
It can also be used as a beach towel or during swimming lessons at a public pool, and the more it’s used outside the club the more exposure you get.
3. Hats (including visors, baseball cap and bucket hat)
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, so its important clubs provide some sort of headwear in their merchandise range.
Our headwear is made from performance micromesh with a UPF rating of 50+ making it a comfortable and sun safe solution.
4. Team jacket/hoodie
A jacket or hoodie is always a great must-have, particularly for the cooler southern states.
They’re great for supporters sitting on the sidelines in all weather conditions, and athletes travelling to and from events who want to keep their muscles warm before a meet.
5. Water bottles
A one-colour-print water bottle can be a cheap item to add to a merch range.
It can be used by anyone, and they’re quick and easy to design and ship.
