There can be bats and balls, helmets and pads, as well as uniforms to take care of and keep them safe. Doing so helps your child to diligently concentrate on playing his favorite sport than fretting over his/her equipment.
Here are 5 tips for organizing your kids’ sports equipment.
- A central location
You can choose to have your garage as a central location for all sports equipment inventory. A central location is important so that everything is at hand and to avoid last-minute search parties.
- Ask kids to use the laundry
You should encourage your child to put dirty clothes in the laundry before they head over to his/her room. This has two advantages: the dirty socks won’t mess up your neat floors, and secondly there will be no scattering of sports jerseys and uniforms.
- Shoe Rack
It is advisable to keep skates and other sports shoes outside the door in the central location or laundry room. This not only makes it easy for your kids to grab ‘em and go, but also helps the sweaty footwear to dissipate odor and moisture.
- Helmet Hooks
Another remarkable organization technique for sports equipment is installing helmet hooks for hanging helmets in the central location. You can also have pegboards or tall trash cans to store larger sports items like baseball bats, tennis racquets and golf clubs etc.
- Individual bags for each kid
If all your kids love outdoor games, it is easier to organize their sport equipments by designating different bagpacks for each child, and label them. Ensure that the bags have sufficient compartments to accommodate the smaller gears.
