Being a sports mom is a unique and rewarding experience! It’s a role that goes beyond cheering on my boys from the sidelines. It’s about being their biggest supporter, their cheerleader, their sideline doc and sometimes, their therapist.

As a sports mom, I have learned that there is some essential gear that I need to navigate each season like a champ, ensuring both me and my athletes are comfortable and ready for anything this season has to throw at us!

Essentials for Every Game:

  • The Mighty Bag: Invest in a sturdy, spacious bag with compartments to organize all your essentials. Consider features like water-resistance and a comfortable strap for easy carrying. I love my Bogg Bag– it is large enough to hold it all and it is weather resistant!
  • Hydration Heroes: Pack reusable water bottles for you and your athlete, and don’t forget a cooler or cooler bag for keeping drinks and snacks chilled on hot days.
  • Sun Safety Saviors: Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat are non-negotiables, regardless of the season. We opt for broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
  • First Aid Fundamentals: Be prepared for minor scrapes and bumps with a well-stocked first-aid kit from Keep Going.
  • Staying Comfy: Pack a portable chair, a blanket for cooler days, and a small umbrella for unexpected showers.

Bonus Gear for the Super-Prepared Mom:

  • Entertainment Essentials: Keep younger siblings occupied with activity books, small toys, or a portable game.
  • Tech Time Savers: A portable phone charger ensures you stay connected and can capture those special moments.
  • Multitasking Marvels: Consider a multi-purpose tool with a bottle opener, screwdriver, and other handy features.
  • Snack Savvy: Pack healthy, easy-to-eat snacks like fruits, nuts, and granola bars to keep everyone energized.
  • Safety Bonus: I keep a LifeVac on hand everywhere I go, you just never know!

Team Spirit Essentials: Show your team spirit with face paint, temporary tattoos, or spirit wear for the whole family.

One of my favorite game day must haves is my August Bleu sweatshirt!

It is perfect for those early morning winter games and cool spring evening games.

Plus, I always get a TON of compliments on it!

Remember: This list is a starting point, and your must-haves may vary depending on the sport, your child’s age, and the climate.

By being prepared with these essentials, you can tackle sports mom life with confidence, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for yourself and your little athlete. So grab your gear, cheer loud, and embrace the fun (and maybe a little chaos) of being a sports mom!
