Assuming jerseys/pads/helmets are good.
These would cross my mind, it would depend on the condition of items/ what we have access to. Period tracker system for practice. Jugs Machine A ton of 'extra' footballs. Weight room upgrades Headset system
Seriously, I would look for a big ticket item that you normally wouldn't budget for, or a big ticket item that you have but is wearing out and would be hard to replace.(Phones, sleds, etc) I would look for one-time type of purchases. For example, if you go out and buy three different kinds of uniforms, the kids will expect that every year when you don't have the money.
I'm excited about weight room tech. I have 2 iPads and 2 PUSH bands now. I would like to get enough units for our remaining 3 racks. Partial to PUSH but interested in learning more about VMaxpro. I would also like to get a subscription-based service like Portal so we can go 100% digital.
We also have a Freelap system with 8 chips. I would buy enough extra chips so we wouldn't have to share. Ideally, 1 chip per student/athlete.
I do not believe that crossfit/MMA groups are making people douchebags, but I do know that douchebags are almost universally attracted to the crossfit/MMA scene, it's like catnip for them...
"Football linemen are motivated by a more complicated, self- determining series of factors than the simple fear of humiliation in the public gaze, which is the emotion that galvanizes the backs and receivers."
Depends on your needs, here’s a few places I’d go:
Weight room New Helmets/Shoulder Pads Redo Locker Room Replace sleds/hand shields Specialty equipment (sideline kicking net for example) Projectors/TVs/Smartboards for film sessions for Indy groups Pre-game swag for kids (dri fit shirts for example) Pay for a 3rd party to take care of fields (including painting)

Warm ups would be cool but I would have to have all wear them. It's all or nothing. That could get into a struggle down the road. I would make sure the whole team is a yes for that. I've seen schools spend a butt load on something and only use it one or two years. To me that is a waste. Travel bags is good. I would make sure that they can handle shoulder pads. Buck bags use to be a good company. Idk if they are still around.
