Adding one or more murals to your local sports facility can go a long way toward improving its look and making young athletes and parents alike excited to visit to compete and to watch sporting events. If you're interested in a mural, look for a local art company that specializes in mural design. You'll be able to sit with an artist to discuss your goals for the project, and he or she can then make up some sketches for you to approve. Once you've given the project a thumbs up, the artist will then paint your chosen mural in a location of your choice at the sports venue — perhaps on an exterior brick wall that faces some athletic fields, for example. Here are some mural ideas that might appeal to you.
If your local sports organization has won a number of championships over the years, this can be a fun design for a mural to focus on. There are many directions that you can go with this idea. For example, one design might read "District Champs" and the year of the championship, with the names of the players and coaches below, for each championship. The artist can also add complementary designs that reflect the sport — for example, soccer balls, baseballs, footballs, or other similar images.
There's a good chance that your local sports organization has had many players move onto the college and even professional ranks over the years. This can especially be true if the organization has been around for several decades. Another mural idea to consider is to have your artist paint the likeness of several notable alumni on a wall, ideally in chronological order. The artist should leave space in the mural for future additions, as this can help to motivate your current players to work hard and perhaps be included on the mural someday. When it's time to unveil the mural, you may wish to invite some of the alumni featured in the design to attend.
Many local sports organizations change their logos on multiple occasions over the years. If your organization has used a number of different logos throughout its history, a mural that reflects each of these logos can be another good choice to continue. You can ask your artist to paint each logo and include the dates that it was in use below it — for example, "1950 to 1965." This mural idea can be a good way to pay tribute to the past teams that represented the organization.
