Hard Parts of Running a Baseball/Softball Facility
Narrow time window for primary customers to actually use it (nights and weekends)
Batting cages are notoriously bad at being efficient in terms of $ per sq. foot
So there's not a lot of time and during that time we don't make a lot of money.
We need something that has a smaller footprint (more kids in each cage and tunnel).
We need something that we can charge a higher price for and takes a shorter period of time to complete.
Also, it would also be nice to have something that is low maintenance - meaning we don't have to worry about coach-to-player ratio as much as we typically do.
Here's what you do:
6 - Week Bat Speed Training Camp
45 min sessions
2 Nights / Week
2 Sessions per night (1.5 Hr)
8-10 Hitters per cage per session (working in partners ~ 20 Total)
Cost - $250 per kid
Let's do math...
For 1 Cage
$250 per athlete x 10 athletes per session = $2500
2 Sessions Per Night x $2500 = $5000
1.5 Hr per Night x 12 Nights = 18 Total Hrs
$5000 / 18 Hr = $277/Hr Per Cage
Bonus: It only takes one instructor to run a cage
Double Bonus: It can pretty much be any instructor - They don't have to be the best coach on the planet. These things run themselves. You just have to know how to set it up and adjust it.
The Very Best Part - it's the easiest way to show parents and players an ROI by way of working out at your facility. If you follow our 6-week overload/underload program and you're using Bat Speed Recons to accurately track progress, you can expect to see at least 3-5mph gains on avg. bat speed AT LEAST.
For every additional mph of bat speed gained on an optimally launched baseball equates to 5 additional ft. of flight.
So expect return customers for the advanced bat speed boot camp you run 2 weeks later that lasts 10 weeks.
