Another topic discussed at the Coaches Conference was ways to generate money for the HS weight room.


Doug Bull has been innovative in the area. He has put on conferences at his school as well as charging for his summer program. 

The money I earn from my summer program is used to pay the coaches who help out and the rest is used for equipment in our room. 

What are some other ideas that coaches use to generate funds to support their HS weight room.

A couple of years ago we put a chocolate milk vending machine in our weight room for our athletes to have access to for post workout recovery.  All money profited goes directly back into the weight room.  Right now we go through about 15 cases a week.
