Complete Sharepoint novice: want to deploy a custom Word template to all Sharepoint Team sites

Occasional Contributor

My organisation has no experience of Sharepoint, but it's suddenly part of our infrastructure because we're about to roll out MS Teams to our staff. I understand how Sharepoint is the storage space that sits behind each MS Teams workspace, but I don't know how to control the default settings for the new Team Sharepoint site that's automatically created when we add a new Team. 


In Teams, we can create new Word docs from scratch, within the Teams app. They're based on a default template - the font is Calibri, for example. Our house font is Arial, so we either want to edit the template which is automatically available to each Teams workspace, or upload a custom template that will automatically be available whenever a new Teams Sharepoint site is created.


I've figured out how to add a custom Word template to a single Teams sharepoint site, but it's laborious, and there must be a way of doing at at the 'parent' level. 


I've posted questions and support requests in various MS Teams forums, but nobody has come up with a solution, so maybe I need to look for an answer at the Sharepoint end.
