These are extraordinary times. The COVID pandemic has impacted our industry like never before. Yet, all around us, we find resilience and perseverance. Whether it is our industry’s swift response to mask development, the rapid formation of the PLAY Coalition initiative, or the collaborative creation of safe return to play guidelines, we are collectively coming together to fight through one of the toughest moments in our history.
Still, we wanted to find a way to help beyond simply providing products. We decided to pull together the best ideas we could find to help youth sports teams and leagues repair their budgets, find new revenue, or save costs. These are ideas that you can take to your customers to help them through this difficult time. These ideas go beyond uniforms and apparel to find every dollar possible and bring every kid possible back to youth sports.
Today, we are sharing our best ideas for budget friendly apparel and equipment. Many of these solutions we created specifically to help youth sports organizations save money.
We will post all of the ideas in our COVID blog series to gather feedback that will allow you to build and add onto these ideas. This will be our first post in an on-going weekly series. Next week, we will look at new revenue and spiritwear ideas.
