Check out this recent news story about “The Rising Costs of Youth Sports,” that aired yesterday on NBC Baltimore. It highlights the high costs families pay to play sports, constantly replacing gear, which is a financial challenge that is lessened when there is a Play It Again Sports in the neighborhood.
Derek Steele, manager of Play It Again Sports in Baltimore County, has been outfitting kids with equipment for more than a decade. “A lot of the sports have become a little bit of an arms race. Who can have the better equipment? The better equipment gives you an edge. Unfortunately you pay for that edge,” Steele said.
Play It Again Sports brings affordability into the mix by offering quality new and used equipment. As an example, Steele mentioned the popularity of their cleat program which allows a customer to trade cleats for another used pair without costing a penny.
Most Play It Again Sports franchisees are sports enthusiasts who were customers first and have now made a career bringing this unique store to their communities. Territories are still available throughout the United States and Canada. For more information, click to learn more!
