New Sports Gear is Expensive!
Used sporting goods retail stores benefit from a large market of thrifty shoppers looking to save on athletic equipment. It makes sense, when you do the math. Youth sports equipment costs an arm and a leg, and before you turn around, they’ve already grown and need bigger gear. It’s enough to truly tax a parents wallet or, even worse, dissuade them from enrolling their children in sports programs altogether.

According to Ohio University, between bats, gloves, shoes, and protective gear, parents are very likely to spend well over $1,000 to outfit a child to play on a baseball team. Add in the fact that a child likely will need to have their equipment replaced as they grow and advance in their sport, and parents can end up paying out $30,000 or more in equipment for one child to play a sport between ages 8 and 18.
