Do you have one or more footballs that no longer hold air? I specialize in bringing footballs back to life by replacing the old air bladder and laces with a new bladder and laces. A new leather football costs $100+. While the leather of the football can last a long time, the bladders wear out due to age or wear and tear. Replacing the bladder is an economical method of extending the life of a football
I have replaced the bladders in over 1500 footballs for clients in 38 states. My clients have ranged from college and high school coaches and equipment managers, to private kicking and QB coaches, high school and college kickers, long snappers, and QBs, to individuals with cherished game footballs and autographed footballs.
For 1-3 autograph, display, or relic footballs, I charge $50 per ball, which includes shipping; For footballs to play with, throw, kick, etc, contact me for pricing.
If you have more than 3 autograph or display footballs to repair, contact me for price.
If you are located in the Phoenix, AZ valley and prefer to bring your football or footballs to Fountain Hills, send me a message and we can discuss the price of repair and a drop off location and day/time.
I often complete the order within a day or two of receiving the footballs, but that could vary based on the size and quantity of the orders I have in the que at a given time.
I accept credit cards through PayPal (Convenient button below), Venmo (@David-Sedmak), and checks (To: CoachSed LLC). If your school needs my W9, I can provide that on request. I can provide an invoice ahead of time if necessary.
****NOTE: These bladders are made of butyl rubber, which are heavier, thicker, and more durable than the polyurethane bladders used in most footballs made in the United States. Those polyurethane bladders actually disintegrate over time, sometimes even when they are fairly new. Plus, polyurethane bladders are no longer available for purchase to repair footballs. The football with a polyurethane bladder weighs approximately 13 ounces, while the football with a butyl bladder weighs approximately 21 ounces. When I replace the bladder, I use the same laces as those used on Wilson NFL game footballs, and you have your choice of white or black laces (if no preference for laces is mentioned, I will use white laces).
***I will have latex bladders available in April. They are similar in weight to polyurethane bladders used in Wilson, Nike, Adidas, etc footballs.
**I also repair basketballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs that are not holding air. Contact me for pricing.
The process works as follows:
- Email any questions or let me know how many footballs you are sending to: email@example.com, or text to (937) 776-4158, or Twitter DM @coachsed, or use the contact form below.
- Ship the footballs to: David Sedmak 15308 E Hidden Springs Trl Fountain Hills, AZ 85268
- I will contact you when I receive them. When I finish them, I will send you a before/after photo of the footballs, your invoice, and the UPS tracking number. I will hold the footballs overnight to make sure they are successfully retaining air with the new bladder (if not, I will replace the new bladder with another new bladder). I will ship them after holding them overnight and being paid. If you have 1-3 footballs to be repaired, you can use the convenient PayPal payment button below. If your football(s) are valuable autographed footballs or award footballs, I recommend purchasing insurance to ship them to me, and I will charge you extra for insurance to ship them back to you. If this is the case, you need to inform me ahead of time.
I guarantee my service. If you have an issue with any football after they are returned to you, let me know and I will take care of it.
