A chill is in the air and winter is just around the corner. It’s time to start thinking about gearing the kids up for the upcoming, winter season. Do it with a Youth Season Rental.
What is Youth Season Rental?
Youth Season Rental is sometimes referred to as Youth Season Lease, Junior Season Lease, Junior Season Rental and a slew of other names. It usually consist of a full setup of snowboard, snowboard boots, and snowboard bindings. But why go with a Youth Season Rental over purchasing your child their own snowboard gear?
You can pay to use the gear for the season and return it at the end for a much lower cost than purchasing a full, retail setup. Often dealers who provide Youth Season Rentals have incentive programs and pricing deals for you to return, until your kids stop growing or you’re ready to buy them their own gear.
Outfitting your ever-growing child with new gear year after year can be expensive. Consider how often they grow out of their shoes. With a Youth Season Rental package you can trade in your setup each season for a new size that properly fits your child.
Gear that fits properly is essential to children finding success with snowboarding. Ill-fitting boots can cause heal lift, cramping or cold feet. A snowboard that’s not the right size can hinder the riding process. A snowboard too big can make it hard for your child to turn. A board too small will not flex properly and feel unstable. Being able to provide your child with the proper, fitting gear year over year, will help them find success with learning to snowboard. Once they’re linking turns your family will be able to enjoy riding together for many seasons to come.
When you go into a shop to purchase your Youth Season Rental (lease) package they will take the time to properly fit your child to their gear. Shop techs are experts in sizing the right gear for the rider to make sure they get the most out of their gear for the best experience.
Many shops will provide you with a discount or deal when you are ready to purchase your child’s first snowboard setup. As well many shops provide other incentive deals with their Youth Season Rental programs to help get your child get into the sport. These deals may include discounts to shop for other necessities in store, product raffles, lift tickets, lessons and/or passes to local mountains.
