Duke Basketball Team Compacts Equipment Storage
The Duke University basketball program has had an unprecedented level of success since 1984. With five national championships to their name, and 12 Final Four appearances, the Blue Devils are a tour de force every season. A big part of their success stems from coach Mike Krzyzewski and the excellence he demands of everyone in the program. When their equipment storage system was an unorganized mess, it should come as no surprise that coach Kryzyzweski would demand the same level of excellence of their redesigned equipment storage room. Striving for the best, the Blue Devils spoke with their local Spacesaver representative to learn how they could optimize their equipment storage to match their on court dominance.
A Division I basketball program needs space for jersey storage, apparel and shoe storage, basketball storage, as well as practice equipment. With the new storage system, athletic sliding shelving with custom shelving was deployed. Everything had its own place on the equipment storage system, including a custom solution meant for basketball storage. The Duke equipment manager no longer has to worry about missing equipment and checking inventory is simple and takes a matter of minutes. For the Blue Devils, athletic sliding shelving was the perfect solution to keep them focused on their on court performance.
