   will lead to more success on the field

 – Set room assignments on the road to break up “Clicks”
 – Looking good can make players buy in to the club philosophy faster
      • Coordinating hats, helmets, uniforms, and practice gear go a long way
 – Being organized will give opponents the impression of strong leadership while instilling
   pride in your team to compete with confidence
      • Arriving in uniform, team vans, choreographed warm ups, show opponents that you take things
        seriously
      • Choreographed practices with a set practice attire sends that same message to your players
                      Session 1
               Team Operations – Kenny Rayl

Budgeting
– See sample budget in Meeting Packet

Player Dues
– How much to charge?
– What is included?
   • Spring Training trip? Travel costs? New Uniforms?
   • More included = Higher Dues$
– Supply & Demand: Lots of interest = Higher Dues$
– Make them pay as soon as they make the team
   • Players who practice for months and then fail to hand over a check hurt the
     team financially and chemistry
– Charge $5 for tryouts
                   Session 1
             Team Operations – Kenny Rayl

Team Equipment/Uniforms
– Be sure to order early as customized items tend to have extended
  lead times
– Order extra caps, everyone’s dad and brother will buy one for a
  fundraiser
– Order extra pants and jerseys, uniforms do rip or go missing on
  occasion
– Order extra game balls when the supply runs low, NCBA rules
  state you must use the Official NCBA Baseball and they don’t go
  bad
– Get quotes from NCBA sponsors, there is a reason why the NCBA
  endorses them
– Take advantage of additional NCBA discounts during early
  ordering periods
