I need suggestions for settting up a team of 41 kids plus coaches without any bleachers to use for the team photo. It's HS soccer and they want the entire team in one shot (V,JV,F)

I'm going to agree with this. I would divide up the groups somewhat equally and have the front row on their butt sitting Indian style (criss-cross applesauce my 3 yo says). Have the second row kneeling and the third row standing. Have them form a slight arch. I've seen it down with even more people.

I'll have a ladder but I'm concerned about how many rows and whether it will look good. Usually for large teams there are bleachers for me to put them in. I like the idea of the slight arch. They want all 41 in the same shot.

Using Kevin's suggestion you would only have three rows of 13...I think what Kevin suggested is a great ideal and should work for you very well.

Thanks for all the input. They ended up agreeing with me that separate JV and V team photos would be better. This way the kids could pick which one they wanted and parents that had kids on both teams, purchased both.

I'm a little late with this.. but another way i've seen it done, is to use the long seats along the sidelines (like the football players use) and have a row stand on them, a row standing on the ground and then one sitting or kneeling on the ground or both if you need it.
