    Hi All,

    I was asked then voted in to be our Boards Equipment Director. I am looking for ways to make sure Coaches WILL Return their Checked Out Equipment at the End of the Season. (EX: Coaches Give League a Check for "X" Amount, Check Returned to Coach when Equipment Returned.)

    Thanks in Advance

    The only way I've ever seen this work well is by requiring a deposit to check things out. This is pretty unpopular with the coaches, but it does tend to work.

    Maybe give them a small bonus to return things, instead of a deposit? Giving them a financial stake is about the only thing.

    Anyway, this problem continues in perpetuity for every organization in every sport I know of. Including high school and middle school.

    we just ate the cost every year, there was simply no way without financial obligation. So we just absorb the cost and buy new equipment every year, especially in rec.
