YOU Could Represent Vinci Pro in the Player Representative Program!

Friday, January 18th, 2013

As part of our National Advertising Campaign, Vinci Sports LLC is currently seeking new Player Representatives to join our team of associates. Player Representatives are authorized dealers of Vinci product that consist of baseball and softball players, coaches, and directors of athletic programs.

As a player or coach, you have substantial access to people who use sports equipment. This could be a potential advantage for you should you want to ever make money selling sporting goods, such as Vinci Pro’s high quality baseball and softball gloves and gear. Right now Vinci is currently seeking new Player Representatives. As a Player Representative, you have the ability to purchase Vinci products at wholesale prices which allows you to sell them to your network of friends, family and sports acquaintances for a significant profit.

There’s no need for you to own a Website because your customers can view product information, photos and details right on the VinciPro.com Website and place their orders with you! Vinci also provides its Player Representatives with tri-fold folders and catalogs and will even provide 500 business cards to the Player Representative once his/her sales total $1000.

There are no fees associated with being a Vinci Player Representative and after the initial order, a Player Representative only needs to place orders for the product sold. Vinci will even ship products directly to your customers (shipping charge applies).

The Vinci Pro Player Representative Program has low start-up costs and includes a tiered incentive program which helps representatives earn free products.

You can represent Vinci with your team or program, at tournaments, at coach clinics and more, all while earning money!

New Vinci Glove Series: Optimus

Friday, January 11th, 2013

The BEST Vinci Pro Gloves Yet!

The Vinci Research and Development department has been working for the past two years to bring you the newest Vinci Pro glove series, the Optimus series. The Optimus series already made its way into the Major Leagues as gloves in this series were tested throughout the 2012 season at the Major League level.

Starting Monday, four new gloves from this series will be made available to the public for the first time. The Optimus JV, Optimus BM, Optimus BV and Optimus JC gloves will be the first in this series available for purchase with more to follow.

Every glove in this new series features a new top of the line leather, never before used in a Vinci glove. The new leather is exclusively available in Walnut color. This leather has proven to be very durable and provides a unique feel that we think Vinci Pro fans will appreciate. Gloves in the Optimus series are also made with rolled welting which makes for a better looking glove. By far, this is the best Vinci Pro Baseball glove series to date, which is why it was named “Optimus,” which is the Latin word meaning “BEST.”

The Optimus JV comes in Walnut with a black mesh back and black lace. This 11.5 inch glove is great for any infielder looking to up their game in style and the sophisticated look is just the beginning! With an I-Web style of web and an open back this could just be your next Vinci glove! The pocket design is just right for quick catch and release of the ball during play.

Outfielder’s will enjoy playing ball with the new Vinci Optimus BM Baseball Glove. Vinci’s signature deep pocket design makes catching fly balls a cinch and the longer length of this glove helps extend player reach and range. This 13 inch Vinci features a closed back design and dual H-Post web style and it comes in walnut with a black mesh back.

Vinci’s new 11.5 inch Optimus BV will make any pitcher the center of attention with its walnut leather, open back, black lace, and solid web design.

Made for both Infield and Pitcher positions, the Vinci Optimus JC is an all-leather glove with open back and Net-T web in an 11.5 inch size.

These four gloves being made available on Monday will be carried stock in the sizes noted above, but can be customized in sizes up to 13.5 inches. Vinci will also allow color customization on gloves in this series with multiple color options for the lace and mesh. Mesh colors available include navy blue, gray and black. The name personalization feature is also available for an additional charge. Call Vinci Pro at 1.888.529.6864 for details on glove customization.

Initially, gloves in the new Vinci Pro Optimus Series will be available at lower, special introductory pricing. Not only that, but each glove also comes with a FREE Vinci glove bag and Vinci glove conditioner.

Money Saving Tips for Baseball & Softball

Sunday, October 21st, 2012
If you or your child plays any sports, you know that the sacrifice of your time and efforts is just the beginning of what playing can cost.  There are league/team registration fees, late fees if you miss deadlines, uniform costs, the expenses of traveling such as lodging, gas, rental cars, bus fees, and meals.  There are the expenses of private coaches and trainers, gym fees, training equipment, camp costs, and competition fees.  Not to mention the additional costs of lodging for your family when traveling, admission fees for family members to tournaments and the lost wages that you experience when dedicating time to all that participation requires.
Many players cannot afford all the expenses of playing on a travel team which may limit their growth as a player.  Families can carry a large financial burden just simply by deciding to involve their kids in sports, even without a travel commitment.
The recognition of the high cost of playing baseball and softball is part of why Vinci Pro decided to run giveaways.  At least the winner can experience a “break” in the costs.  We wouldn’t stay in business long if we just gave away the high quality Vinci gloves, but we can at least offer some tips for how you can cut down the price tag for playing baseball and/or softball.  Below are a few ways you can start saving now, we will continue to bring you new ideas in the future.
Start with league/team registration fees.  Sometimes a team or league may need certain types of professional services that you can offer in exchange for a reduction of your fees.  For example, if your are particularly good at social media, you may be able to run the team’s Facebook page for the season, updating on team news and sending out reminders in exchange for having your kids fees waived for the season.  Teams rely on volunteers for much of what they do but that does not mean you have to give away services that you could use as leverage to put yourself in a better position to play.  Think outside the box on what you can provide that others may not be able to and you will more likely be able to convince the administrator to make a deal.
Scholarships are an especially effective way to save money not only on registration fees, but also on training camp costs and competition fees.  There are lots of need-based and talent based scholarships available from multiple sources.  Be sure to ASK before you register or pay.  Also, apply even if you don’t think you will qualify.  It might just take a few minutes to complete an application that could save you hundreds of dollars.
On the topic of training, it may be possible to save some cash that you would otherwise spend on private instruction and personal trainers by looking to people who you already know for less expensive lessons or even free training time.  Depending on your (or your child’s) skill level, you may be able to tap into resources such as school coaches, or even advanced players for one on one training.  A young college player who has already received private instruction from great coaches and trainers may be willing to pass on the knowledge that they acquired for less than the price that they paid.  This helps that player recoup some of the cost that they paid and saves you money from the start.  Already have a trainer you love to work with?  Ask them if they can offer you referral incentives and then tell everyone you know how great your trainer is.
Playing on a travel team provides great memories and challenges players but it can come with high costs.  Plan ahead to save money by shopping for lodging deals on daily deal Sites.  Sites like Groupon.com offer savings of up to 70% on hotel stays so if you know where you are going ahead of time you can look out for deals in the area.  Don’t dismiss the idea of camping when the weather permits.  Camping with your teammates can be a wonderful experience adding to the memories and saving tons on lodging costs.  Also, you don’t need to eat out just because you are on the road.  When you choose a hotel, try to find one with a kitchenette so you can prepare meals in room, or at least make sandwiches and pack ready to eat snacks to cut down on the meal costs.
Players and parents can really save a bundle on equipment costs.  While you may not always have a say on where you get your uniforms, you can save on personal equipment like shoes and bats by taking part in – or even hosting – an equipment exchange.  At the youth level these can really serve as a way parents can save, as young players often outgrow things like shoes before the equipment has been worn out.   Not sure where to find an equipment exchange?  You can also get used equipment at used sporting goods stores and online classifieds like Ebay and Craigs List.  Sometimes buying used is ok, but sometimes it’s best to get it new.  For example, it’s a good idea to get your safety equipment new.  Plus, when you purchase QUALITY equipment, like your Vinci Glove, you will get years of use which will save you money in the long run AND provide you with all the comfort and functionality of a high end glove.
