Purposeful Play

Team Name and Mascot

Why is this important?

  • A good name can give a good first impression
  • Helps build strong connections with our teammates
  • Gives us a sense of ownership.

Why a mascot?

  • A mascot helps give your team character, personality, and a face. It becomes easy to establish a physical and emotional connection with your audience, to help differentiate you from the rest of the pack.

Team Name Brainstorm

Now you will brainstorm your own ideas about what names you would like. We will share our ideas with our teammates and vote on which we like best. 

Remember, this is about YOU and your team!

Think about your school, your teammates, and what makes your team unique.
