9 Unique Sports Club Presentation Day Ideas
It’s nearing the end of the sports season and you need to organise the Sports Club Presentation Day. Your motto for this event should be “Don’t end it on a flat note!”
- You want the children who have joined your Club to come back for next year’s season. They are creatures of habit and will sign up year after year if they know there’s a great party at the end of the sporting season.
- Then there are your volunteer Coaches and Club officials. They put so much effort into the sports club “in season” activities. The Presentation Day event needs to be memorable so that they feel appreciated, and will put even more effort into the next season.
- Finally, you’ve got the parents. They need to see that they have placed their child in a vibrant Club which not only recognises talent, but is a friendly and fun place for their child to belong.
So how can you achieve top marks in those three “Why’s”?
The most successful Sports Club Presentation Days seem to be outdoor events in a park or a community hall with a grassed area beside it. So, you’ve got the trophies and/or certificates organised. An Emcee has been appointed, and an audio system is ready for the big day. But what can you add to give the WOW factor?
Bubbling With Energy has been in operation for over 27 years. It is one of the largest and most experienced entertainment hire companies in Australia. Let us share our experiences in hiring out “WOW factor” amusement devices to Sporting Clubs for their end of year Presentation Day events. Some of these ideas are also great for attracting new players on your club registration days.
1 Obstacle Courses Sydney
Sports Clubs are physical entities. So, some Clubs opt for the more physical inflatables in our Obstacle Courses range. These include devices such as the Extreme Fun Run, Adrenaline Rush, and the Toxic Radical Junior. The names reflect the physical nature of these inflatables.
Click the Obstacle Course descriptors here and you will see why they have the WOW factor.
2 Interactive Games Sydney
You may have seen Channel 9’s Footy Show hosts such as Paul Vautin, Erin Moran, and Darryl Brohman fight it out on some of our interactive games and obstacles such as the Toxic Wipeout, the Stunt Jump, and the ever popular Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course.
We also have Target Soccer and Footy Passing inflatables, the incredible Human Table Football Combo, and the Inflatable Sports Zone Arena. The latter comprises an inflatable indoor soccer arena, volleyball, basketball and twister. It’s a huge hit for all ages.
You can have the same activities at your Sports Presentation event. Click Sports Inflatables for more information and pictures of how these activities contribute to the WOW factor at your event.
3 Water Slides Sydney
When their Sports Club Presentation Day event is in the summer months, our Water Slides are a big hit. They have spellbinding names like our most popular slide called The Screamer, Wild Rapids, the gigantic Mammoth Mountain Drop, Aqua Rush, and the Log Jammer Extreme. Add our famous Dunk Tank to the event (get a favourite coach to be the “dunkee”) and you will have created a very memorable occasion. Club members will ask “Wow, how can they top that next season?”
In the cooler months our Dry Slides and Obstacle Courses such as the Adrenalin Rush, Large Monkey, Dual Lane, and Extreme Fun Run will add just as much WOW factor excitement to the event.
4 Jumping Castles Sydney
Every child loves a Jumping castle! We have a wide range to cater to all ages and sizes. They have catchy names like Jurassic, Jungle Adventure, Disney Frozen, Justice League, Cameron the Kiddipillar, and Spiderman.
Some of our castles such as the Red and Blue are “2 in 1”. They have a bouncing area as well as another feature such as a basketball hoop, a pop up, or a slide.

5 Junior Footy Club Events
Here’s another Sports Club presentation idea. Are you arranging an end of season club celebration, or mid season family fun day, or want to attract potential players to your registration day? Or, you may be a feeder school wanting to have a footy themed celebration.
Check out our new range of Rugby League Club footy themed jumping castles, 6 in 1 combo’s, and obstacle courses. As seen at many Club home games and fan days, you can choose themes aligned to Bulldogs, Dragons, Eels, Tigers, Panthers, Rabbits, Roosters and Sea Eagles. Just imagine you are a Penrith Panthers aligned junior club. So, you set up a Panther on the Prowl Obstacle Course and Junior Jumper jumping castle at your club pre season registration day. This is a great way to attract players and start the year off with excitement and fun.
6 Junior Soccer Club Events
We also have sports club presentation ideas for junior soccer clubs. Check out our range of soccer themed products. For your registration day, mid season family fundraiser, or presentation day, you can have the incredible inflatable soccer shootout, the giant soccer darts, billiard soccer, or even an indoor inflatable soccer arena. The latter is great because it’s fully enclosed and the balls just bounce off the walls, and not into neighbour’s gardens.
During the season, if you want to increase the speed and accuracy of your players kicks, hire the Soccer Radar Challenge. The player kicks the ball to the target, and our radar gun reads the speed. The display tells you how fast the ball was travelling. Also it can be used for cricket and baseball players.
Furthermore, for both footy and soccer fans we have inflatable target soccer and footy passing, and mini inflatable football passing activities.
If you are having a Gala Day, consider our 25m and 20m long inflatable soccer fields. We have two of each for hire. They are great for running separate events, and keeping spectators off the field of play. Hire all four and you can have a six a side game on one; a coaching clinic on another; a target shooting competition on another, and a goalie challenge on the fourth! Some clubs also hire the fields for soccer boot camps.
NOTE: Junior hockey clubs can use the same fields for their activities.
7 Optional Extras for your Sports Club Presentation Day
Add to the exciting atmosphere of your event with optional extras such as Carnival Food. These are sno cones, popcorn or fairy floss. We also have Party performers such as face painters, temporary tattoo artists, and a roaming clown.
8 Safety First
For all of these events we have trained professional staff who can set up and supervise your amusement hire. Our vehicles are tracked so we know where they are and can advise you if there is a slight delay. All our employees have a working with children check. For event organisers, we can even supply access to a video explaining proper safety procedures when using inflatables.
9 Promoting Your Sports Club Presentation Day Event
Imagine the excitement you can generate for your event if you advertise the names of some of the activities you will be using. The Screamer, Adrenaline Rush, the Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course are catchy names which will attract attention. Feature them in your newsletters and event advertising.
If you have company sponsors, we can feature their signage by “velcroing” it on our inflatable obstacle courses or jumping castles. Sponsors like to be appreciated and get some value for their money. This is an effective and easy way to do it.
A Final Note about your Sports Club Presentation Day
Remember that at the start of this Blog we said that for a successful Sports Club Presentation Day you need to take on the attitude of “Don’t end it on a flat note!” So, with the extensive examples above we hope you can see how you can achieve a WOW factor event that will keep your members signing up each year; recognise and appreciate your volunteers; and, ensure that parents know they have signed their child up to a vibrant, fun and friendly Club.
