Tips For Organizing Your Gear

If your kids are in sports during the school year or summer, you know how hectic things can get! Sometimes the very gear that it takes to help them play the sport can make everything even more chaotic. It’s been a goal of mine in 2015 to get our gear as organized as possible. Check out my tips for organizing your gear for the year.

3 Tips For Organizing Your Gear

#1. Organize By Sport

When everything is mixed together into one bag, life can get a little confusing. We have started organizing by sport. If we’re playing 1-2 sports at a time, it’s important to stay as organized as possible, so organizing by sport is the best option for us.

#2. Use Gear Bags

You don’t need to have a fancy gear bag to get this next organizational part down. We use gear bags to help make the organizational process a lot easier. Throwing everything into one bag does not help the educational cause at all. For example: we have one ski bag for each kid with everything they need for skiing. Another example– if your children play baseball, stay organized by ensuring everyone has their own duffle bag.

#3. Write Down a Schedule

Now that all of your gear is organized, make sure you have a clear and concise schedule that everyone understands. If you have more than one child in a sport, the schedule can get a bit murky. Get creative in how you remember practice and games! Encourage your kids to get their gear ready and organized by the door or put in the vehicle, so there is less rushing around when it’s time to go.
I hope these tips help you get your gear more organized in 2015! No one wants to feel rushed and unorganized. I have found that my kids always practice and play better when they feel like their gear is organized and ready to go. Nothing ruins a game more than anxiety from losing some gear!

We hope these tips for organizing gear will help!
