goad3Over the past year or so, we have seen various organizations and companies turn to 3D printing in order to create custom, one-of-a-kind trophies and rewards. The technology allows for the creation of keepsake products which break away from the same cookie cutter styles that we are all used to seeing.

For one company, called 3D Sports Media, 3D printing is what they are known for, and now they have just unveiled what they refer to as the “Youth Soccer 3D Print Bundle,” aiming to allow for coaches and parents to download and 3D print their own soccer trophies, rewards, and medals from the luxury of their own homes. 3D Sports Media is run by Paul Goad, who happens to be the son of a former professional athlete. He himself also played soccer in high school, and currently has three young children who also play organized sports.

“It appears as if all of the medals and trophies [today] come from the same catalogue and are all mass produced in China,” Goad tells 3DPrint.com. “It is my goal to help change the perception of the existing trophy and sports sculpture market and produce high quality content that can be easily printed on existing 3D Desktop Printers.”

goad2This is exactly what he has done with the release of the Youth Soccer Series 1, which includes files to print 20 different awards, 18 different medals, and a sculpture of a boy soccer player as well as a girl. The bundle, which can be purchased for just $58, will allow coaches, parents, and players to download and print as many copies as they would like. The rewards are all completely customizable, and in the future Goad hopes to advance the technology further in order to customize each reward on a one-to-one basis for the look of a particular sports team.

“The goal at 3D Sports Media is to offer a unique alternative to the traditional sports awards, trophy and medal market,” Goad tells us. “We will be expanding the library of models by creating a wide range of poses and characters giving our customers a variety of choices when selecting awards for their organization and team.”

Once their library expands, Goad says that they will begin looking into establishing their very own 3D printer farm in order to 3D print sculptures for clients who don’t have their own 3D printers. When you come think of it, sports teams typically pay around $10-$20 per trophy for each child on the team. With desktop 3D printers, these trophies provided by 3D Sports Media can be 3D printed for as little as $1.50 in material each, and the medals for as low as $0.25.

3D Sports Media - 3D Printed Medals, Trophies, Awards and SculptAs for their upcoming plans, Goad will be expanding on 3D Sports Media’s offerings, in more ways than one.

“Over the next few months we will be expanding our Soccer Library, completing a series of Freestyle Football Sculptures, expanding our Medal Library into other sports and launching an Interchangeable Trophy line,” he tells us.

If you are interested in purchasing the design files for these rewards and trophies, you can do so via the 3D Sports Media website. The first 200 people who purchase the Youth Soccer Series 1 Bundle will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a GoPro 3 Silver Edition.
