6 TIPS FOR cheerleading coach binder organization

Determine the purpose of your binder.

Do you want it to be where every document you need for your season stays? Is your goal for it to only be where you keep the important documentation? Is it something in between? If you knowing this, it will help you to get started.

Find a pretty binder.

I love all things pretty and sometimes, I’m more motivated to keep things organized inside if the outside is pretty. Maybe you choose a binder that matches your team colors or one that just has a pretty design. Doesn’t matter!

Identify exactly what items you want to go inside of your binder.

That way, you don’t have unnecessary things inside. We have a blog post that shares our top 5 things you need in your cheerleading coach binder if you want to check it out.

Create sections so you can easily find what you’re looking for.

You can find tabbed section dividers at most office supply stores and some craft stores. Grab yourself a few, label them and use as section dividers. Some of the sections that were inside of my binder were: team, parents, money, & calendars.

Hole punch your documents and add them into your binder within the section that makes the most sense.

If you’re including a roster, this would go under your “team” section, if you’re including fundraising information, this would go under your “money” section, etc.

You’re good to go!

Now your binder should be organized and clutter free – hopefully relieving you of any stress!
