“SquadLocker exceeded our expectation. I was able to set up 38 individual team stores, share them with players and parents, and they did the rest. Our gear arrived at players' homes on time, looked great, and we earned nearly $7,500 to use for Capital Improvements and other upgrades to keep our kids safe. We look forward to moving on to our already proven, great relationship.”

About

WRB is a Cal Ripken affiliated league serving nearly 500 players from 5-12 years old. WRB is committed to offering local players and families the best youth baseball experience and player development opportunities. SquadLocker is helping to make that happen.

Challenges

WRB was frustrated with bulk managing their player and coach uniforms each year. Collecting sizes & payments, bulk ordering uniforms, distributing them individually, and dealing with complaints was taking a toll on the WRB staff. Also, due to minimum purchase requirements from bulk vendors, it wasn’t possible to supply late registrants or replacement requests without taking on excess inventory.

WRB decided to look for a solution that would allow players, parents, and coaches to directly purchase their uniforms and gear, and have it shipped to their homes, while still allowing the league to maintain total control. The new “outsourced” solution needed to be able to deliver quickly and accurately.

Digital Couponing

WRB desired to transfer a modest portion of registration fees to players for uniform purchase costs. The club purchased 640 digital coupons from SquadLocker which were distributed to players to use in the online stores.

Fundraising

West Raleigh Baseball arranged for SquadLocker to serve all of its players and their families with uniforms, spirit wear, and other essential gear. WRB has earned approximately $7,500 from these purchases to support scholarships and field upkeep.
