Sports Equipment Managers
The responsibilities of equipment managers vary greatly, depending on whether they work for high schools, colleges, universities, or professional teams. Duties are also different from sport to sport, because some have more participants than others. Sports equipment managers at the collegiate level may be responsible for budgeting for all of the university's sports and requisitioning of equipment; some may steer clear of the finances and focus on fitting football equipment and doing laundry. Other duties include purchasing, maintenance, administration and organization, management, professional relations and education, and keeping inventory of all the equipment.
