New State Partner Helps Soccer Parents Find Lost Gear, Provides Fundraising Opportunity For Teams

Washington Youth Soccer is constantly on the lookout for new products and services that provide a unique value to our members. So it was with great excitement that we announced in October our new partnership with Seattle-area startup LostandReturned, an internet-based system that both allows parents to locate lost gear and garments, and provides fundraising opportunities for teams and clubs.

Here's how it works: parents who purchase a 12-month LostAndReturned membership receive a New User Kit featuring registration instructions and 38 unique labels that affix easily to winter coats, backpacks, sweaters, uniforms, sports equipment and more. Each label bears a "Return Code" unique to that member, along with instructions directing anyone who finds the item to go to and enter the code, which allows LostandReturned to help coordinate the return of the lost item to the member.

No more wondering whether that backpack was left at school, on the bus, or at the practice field, or replacing lost clothes and equipment on a seemingly weekly basis — with LostAndReturned stick-n-go labels, your lost items can be returned to you quickly, safely and anonymously.

But that's not all! In addition to providing a recovery service for parents, LostAndReturned also provides a unique fundraising opportunity for teams and clubs. Every Washington Youth Soccer team or club that registers with LostAndReturned will be able to purchase New User Kits for approximately $14, then re-sell those kits for $20 — a $6 profit on every kit sold! What's more, LostAndReturned will continue to pay teams and clubs a portion of the membership renewal fee for each year that one of your customers renews their LostAndReturned membership, for a total of three years.

Washington Youth Soccer is excited to provide its members with this exciting opportunity to not only SAVE time and money by recovering lost items, but to also MAKE money through a fundraising opportunity that delivers a product from which all soccer families can truly benefit. This service makes a great gift for the holidays and birthdays!
