Sports Equipment Recycling From A to Z
Stretch a Dime into a Dollar
One great way to save a ton of money on sports equipment for your kids is to start a co-op with other parents in the area. At the start of each new sports season, you can all bring your old equipment together and see if you have anything you can swap with any of the other parents. We’ve been able to outfit entire teams by trading around as kids grow up and new ones come along!
How to Score the Best Gear
Your kids might not be excited about wearing hand-me-down sports equipment, but new gear for one hockey season can cost five or six hundred dollars! Try buying used gear for the off-season sports and saving your money to buy the latest and greatest for their favorite sport. This way poor equipment won’t hold them back from chasing their dreams, and you can still save money on all the other sports they play.
