Very few sports parents that I’ve ever met like youth sports fundraising. And yet, it has become more and more necessary as the cost of youth sports continues to rise and parents feel the pinch.
There’s registration fees, equipment, tournaments, travel, training camps, and coaching. Parents of higher-level junior athletes can literally spend thousands just so their child can play one season of a competitive sport such as hockey. Schools continue to see physical education budget cuts and the cost to play recreational sports continues to increase.
Perhaps you’re thinking you’ll get it all back when your child goes pro, but that kind of a return on your investment is highly unlikely. According to the NCAA, just 0.1% of high school hockey players, 0.04% of high school soccer players, and 0.6% of high school baseball players ever play professionally.
I personally hated the fundraising side of youth sports. I hated going to businesses, sending letters to family and friends, selling baked goods and all the other ingenious ways people came up with to try to earn money to cover costs. That’s why I think that the time has definitely come for a great idea like FlipGive.
