Man was I excited for this day. On Tuesday, the Reading Fightins unveiled our first 9 to the Nines project we did with the Reading, PA Olivet Boys and Girls Club. What is 9 to the Nines?
9 to the Nines is a program that Brandiose started to bring kids in underserved communities the same team logo and naming experience that we give to our professional teams. Jason and I fly out, help the kids give a cool nickname to their Club, names like Warrior Cheetahs and Lighting Wolves, then we design a logo for their club. Here are a couple photos of Jason and myself running the kids through the naming process.
Here are the final designs that we did for Kids Clubs. The Perkiomen Golden Panthers, the Clinton Street Cobra Squad, the PAL Awesome Wild Cats, the Oakbrook Cheetah Warriors, and the Mulberry Lighting Wolves.
Here are a few photos from Tuesday’s unveiling event. The final step in 9 to the Nines is the team outfitting the kids in uniforms adorned in the new names and design. These kids are looking sharp! Thanks to everyone at the Olivet Boys and Girls Club for helping us pioneer this program. Thanks to the Reading Fightins for being great partners as usual! We can’t wait to do this again with another group of deserving kids.
