Due to the unusually dry start to May, youth and adult softball leagues kicked off the first tournaments of the season recently as coaches flocked to self storage units to house all of their equipment.
There are nearly 2,500 Canadian minor softball athletes displaced over seven age divisions participating in Minor Softball Week this year, according to The StarPheonix. With excited parents and players crowding around ball fields to take in the festivities and warm weather, it is no wonder that, by the day's end, the coaches are left straddling mounds of sweaty catcher's gear, helmets, tubs of softballs and pee-wee sized aluminum bats.
So what is a coach to do? Rent a storage unit for the summer. Many sports leagues opt for cheap storage during the softball season. It keeps their homes clutter- and odor-free and the minimal cost of renting a unit is often times covered by the league.
Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
