Proper care of sporting equipment in schools
Caring for sporting equipment is costly. And the cost for gear repair and maintenance doesn’t discriminate based on what level – local, national, collegiate or professional – you play at. There is always a price to be paid in order to keep equipment in working condition. At the local level, however, funds for repairs and maintenance are harder to come by and, often times, sporting associations and athletic programs, particularly run by schools must rely on the kindness of the community for support. And when keeping the athletic program going becomes too much of a financial burden to bear, many schools are forced to remove the program from their curriculum completely. This, combined with a lack of available space to properly store sporting equipment and apparel, makes it particularly difficult for schools to maintain athletic programs at a standard acceptable enough for school districts to keep them as part of the curriculum.
