Poster Ideas for Homecoming Sports
Whether you need homecoming posters for basketball, football, volleyball, soccer, cheerleading, or any other sport at your school, highlighting the group and individuals is essential.
Homecoming Sports Hall Poster Ideas
During homecoming, hallway posters for sports teams usually feature images of each team member and things related to the sport.
- The hall should be lined with life-size silhouette cutouts of individual players in recognizable stances from their sports. Each hallway should feature a different sports team.
- Using colored pens, make paper jerseys for each player and hang them in the hallway for students to write encouraging messages.
- To showcase each player’s accomplishments, create a giant scoreboard poster.
- Teens can pose behind a poster featuring sports figures with cutout faces and put their faces in the cutouts to create a fun photo opportunity.
- With glue dots, attach small basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, or volleyballs to a poster so teens can take a mini ball home. This can be accomplished with sports ball pencil erasers.
- The poster should include small balls with the names of all the players on them. If you’re playing volleyball, add some flames to the balls and use phrases such as “we’re going to set this match on fire!” or “WCS fans feed the fire that’s about to roast the ducks!”
Homecoming Sports Locker Poster Ideas
Fun locker posters for homecoming can highlight players, teams, or fans. In order to create school unity, create locker posters that are fun for each student.

- Hang short words related to the player’s sport, such as “Goal” for soccer and “Touchdown” for football, on lockers.
- Provide a fill-in-the-blank mini poster that is laminated so students who do not play sports can fill it out themselves. You can use a phrase like “WCS __________ team rules!” Students can change the sport every day if they wish.
