Get Your Gym Ready for the Back-To-School Sports Season

There’s a lot revolving around our nation’s schools this month! According to the Institute of Education Sciences, almost 50 million kids are attending public elementary and secondary schools in the U.S., not including the approximately 21 million students that are attending American colleges and universities this fall. Together, that’s 71 million students running around our nation’s education institutions! More than 125,000 public and private schools in the U.S. are getting back into their schedules and we all know that means the fall sports season is underway.

An ESPN survey reports that children and teens in the U.S. are Gym Divider Imageparticipating in more sports activities. The report says, “Generation Z, or those born in 2000 or after, can now be analyzed in significant numbers. Participation levels [in sports activities] are high for this age group… having over 50% take part in team sports and outdoor activities.”

You might be asking yourself what all of these stats have to do with textiles? Well, trust the textile experts! These numbers are crucial to our industry, indicating that the gyms in our schools will see some heavy usage this year. We advise planning ahead in order to keep sports organized at schools, gyms, and other indoor sports facilities.

To help school sports programs and indoor sports facilities better manage activities and physical education classes in their gyms, they should be using gym divider curtains, further detailed in our July Roll Trac Moving Hardware Imageblog.
