    Nothing brings the student body together like a good old fashioned pep rally! No matter the sport, pep rallies have long represented the tradition of unity and community pride in a group of students that together are more than just a team.

    The esteemed student athletes who are lauded at a pep rally represent the highest potential of the student body, and without the warm and enthusiastic support of their peers, their success would not be as sweet. In a gymnasium full of young people, all bathed in school colors and gushing with school spirit, it is impossible not to be a fan of the home team!

    Although not limited to athletics, school pride has strong roots there. Students leave the gymnasium after a pep rally newly inspired, ready to uphold their school’s reputation of excellence. Some might be prompted to challenge their local rival to a charity food drive contest; others might be raring to bring home that Math trophy for Hometown High; others will be proud to sport school colors while volunteering in the community for the National Honor Society. Not every student is an athlete, but every student benefits from the boost in self-esteem that comes with being a part of a winning team. Pride in one’s school means pride in oneself.

    School spirit is contagious, but it needs to start somewhere. It is difficult for anyone to truly adopt a love of their school without some inspiration. Show your students that their school community is valued and they will know that their achievements will never go unnoticed. The best way to spark hometown pride is to deck the halls with school colors - starting with the gym, of course!

    Adorn the birthplace of school spirit with the colors that inspire. The home of pep rallies and the hub for all your sports teams, the gym should let your teams as well as your visitors know that your school is a force to be reckoned with, on and off the court!

    Sport Systems offers a variety of options for seating, both indoor and outdoor. The aluminum and galvanized steel construction of our bleachers and grandstands guarantee safety and durability above all. They are available in a variety of sizes to meet your needs, and we happily accommodate your school’s colors!

    Furnish your gym for safety as well as spirit with the installation of our gym wall padding, available in custom sizes and hues!
