Abstract or Summary
  • Much has been written concerning the establishment and improvement of the athletic program in large high schools. However, much of that which is applicable to large high schools is not applicable to the smaller institutions. The chief purposes of this study were to explore the athletic equipment problems of the small class "A" institutions of Oregon and to suggest various pieces of inexpensive equipment which could be easily constructed. The procedures used for this work were: 1. a survey of related literature written by experts in the field 2. questionnaires mailed to class "A" Oregon high schools with enrollments of 50 students or more 3. follow-up interviews of selected responding schools. The resulting information served to support the position that small schools do have budget-related athletic equipment problems. This writer has provided diagrams and directions for equipment construction and some guidelines which may help to overcome some of the athletic problems found in these schools. The following recommendations have been drawn from information derived from this study. 1. When lack of money is a problem and savings can be realized, athletic equipment should be home-made rather than purchased. 2. Those funds saved through the construction of equipment should be redirected into other athletic needs, thereby upgrading the total program. 6. The athletic budget should be prepared early and, when possible, its funds pooled with those of other schools to increase the purchasing power of the budget. 3. When feasible the school's industrial arts department should be utilized in equipment construction. 4. Athletic equipment should be of quality material and construction, meeting official specifications and forming the basis of a standardized athletic equipment inventory. 5. A business-like program of equipment control and proper maintenance should be used to insure that athletic equipment and teaching aids have increased usage, preventing early loss, deterioration and replacement.
