Seals Boot Bank


Seals Boot Bank 
Deposit A Pair, Withdraw A Pair

How many of you are in the same boat as I am when it comes to buying new cleats for a kid who's feet just keep growing? Between my two sons, we have a bin of cleats that are still in great condition, they just don't fit anymore. I have always wanted to do somehting with all the old cleats that my boys go through. It seems like I am sometimes buying a new pair cleats for my sons 2-3 times per year. Once they out grow them they are usually still in good shape, they just don't fit anymore. I have always been so grateful to those friends of ours that would gift my boys their kid's out-grown, lightly used cleats. It almost makes no sense to buy brand new cleats at the very your ages because they will only wear them for a couple months.

So, we've started the Seals Boot Bank in an effort to provide the Seals families with a place to recycle cleats, especially in the younger ages when the kids are go through their cleats so quickly. It is very small at the mnoment with only about 10 pair of cleats from my collection of cleats in the bin. We are hoping it will grow and families will have the option to drop a pair of shoes of and pick a pair up if needed once we start training. We will see how it goes.

What: A place to exchange your CLEAN and out-grown cleats.
Where: For now, It will be placed in the storage shed at our practice field. Currently we practice at Temple City High School, and the Boot Bank will be open before, during and after training.

How: Clean your out-grown cleats, tie the laces together and lable the heels with the size. Place your old cleats in the cabinet on the appropriate shelf. Take home a pair that you need.

A Couple Other Notes:

  • Yes, you can take cleats even if you don't bring a pair for exchange.
  • Please clean cleats before putting them on the shelf.
  • If the cleats have holes or broken soles please don't bring them.
  • Only bring soccer cleats. No baseball or American football cleats
  • The Boot Bank will be open whenever we are training; before, during and after training.
  • There will also be a box for shin guards and socks, so guards and socks may also be available
