Talking About Lacrosse Principles and Gear

Welcome to my site. My name is Bennett McCavanaugh. I would like to talk to you about the exciting sport of lacrosse. When I first picked up my lacrosse gear, I was confused about how the game would work. In particular, I was unsure about what my role on the field would be exactly. Luckily, I was able to watch a few games and see how the players interacted. My coach also helped us learn about our roles on the field. I would like to use this site to talk about the different ways lacrosse players use the field and their gear. Please visit often to learn all you can about this fun sport.

Three Outside-The-Box Trophy Ideas To Add Fun To Your Business Retreat

by Julia Hart

Annual business retreats are an ideal way to boost the morale of your workforce. Regardless of your industry, getting your employees away from the office for a day to develop strategies for the future, get to know each other outside of work and celebrate recent successes can have your team pumped up and ready to succeed. One effective way to show your appreciation for your staff members is by giving out trophies to recognize those who go above and beyond. Although trophies such as those for the top salesperson are common, you can also creatively honor the special members of your team. Here are three ideas.

Best Teammate

Many employers view their organizations as a team, so following this sports feeling and recognizing the person who best exemplifies the characteristics of a teammate is ideal. Think of someone who fills in when a co-worker is away, works extra hours without complaining and volunteers to take on large projects when they're presented. Then, visit a custom trophy store to find a suitable trophy and have the plaque engraved with "Best Teammate," the year and the staff member's name. You could also get a corresponding plaque to hang in the office that you update each year with the winner's name.

Multiple Hat Wearer

Several workplaces have a certain someone who tends to tackle a variety of duties beyond his or her job description, and this person can be a true asset to any organization. Whether it's volunteering to help others with their computer problems, constantly filling the copier with paper and replacing the ink toner, baking cookies for colleagues' birthdays or putting together a company newsletter to raise morale, this person's versatility makes him or her an asset deserving of recognition. It's often said that this person wears multiple hats, so play on this angle and recognize the person with a trophy -- ideally, it should be of a figure wearing a hat.

Heavy Lifter

Every office has someone who isn't afraid to figuratively get his or her hands dirty and handle the tough tasks. Whether it's approaching a challenging advertising client, volunteering to draft a lengthy document or volunteer to add to his or her workload by managing a college intern, this person is sometimes called the "heavy lifter" around the office. You can address this fun nickname by finding a trophy with a muscular figure, perhaps the type given during fitness contests, and engrave it with the person's name, "Heavy Lifter" and the year.

Contact a local trophy supplier, like Washington Trophy Center, to find the perfect way to recognize your hardest working team members.
