Competitive Figure Skating Trading Pins Add Fun to Events and Competitions

Competitive figure skating is growing in popularity.  With that being said, trading pins at events and competition gives fans and skaters something to look forward to.  No matter whether the child wins or loses, he or she has an added incentive to perform their very best.

Promoting the Team and Theme for an Events Show

Custom trading pins can help promote a team and theme for an events show.  Because these items can be personalized in a number of ways, they can be considered relevant and sentimental.  If a particular theme was chosen for the event, it can be incorporated into the trading pin’s design.  This adds a fun element to the pins and makes them easy to identify in a collection.  For example, if this year’s theme was Broadway, recipients of the trading pin would be able to find it easily strictly based on its appearance.

Worn By Parents and Attendees to Show Support From the Stands

Parents and other attendees can also wear the trading pins as a way of showing support from the stands.  Having a large crowd of spectators wearing pins gives the skaters the encouragement they need to compete appropriately.  It also provides them with a sense of pride because they know that they have the support of a large group of people while at the event.

Used for Awards and Collector’s Items

Special trading pins can be created for awards and collecting.  They can be cast in different types of finishes to differentiate between First, Second, and Third Place.  They can also feature the same design but in different colors for VIPs.  These Very Important People can wear their pins and get special privileges like front row seats, signed jerseys, and more.

When it comes to pin trading, sports teams of all types love being able to interact with other teams and fans at events.  Competitive skaters are no different.  Trading pins with others gives them a chance to let loose, have some fun, and come home with an assortment of cool pins to show their friends.
