Spring season is getting underway and we want to make sure you’re prepared for it! Here are 10 items that absolutely everyone should carry in their sports bags. Happy packing!
1. Water bottle
This goes without saying, right?! It is getting hot out (finally!) and you have a lot of running to do. Don’t forget to stay hydrated out there.
2. Dark & Light Shirt
There’s nothing more embarrassing than passing to the wrong team. Make sure your team is prepared! If your team has custom uniforms, that’s great. If they’re reversible – even better! Always check the other team’s colour in advance so you don’t show up wearing the same thing. That’s embarrassing.
3. Ball Pump
Trust us, you don’t want the reputation of being the “Deflategate” guy/girl. Bring a pump!
4. First Aid Kit
We try our best to provide our staff with first aid kits, but we suggest you bring your own too! Safety is a priority and you can never be too prepared. Sprained ankles are never fun and they are even less fun without ice!
For real, this little bottle could save your life. Lather up before letting loose! Even late day sun can burn our fairer members.
6. Hair Elastic
Ladies and gents get your flow under control! Don’t forget to bring a hair elastic (and maybe extras for that teammate who always forgets).
Don’t end the fun early, grab your teammates and head to the local bar for some post-game beers! Make sure to treat the game MVP!
8. Change of Clothes
Win or lose, you’ve worked hard during your game and likely are a wee bit sweaty. We suggest bringing an extra pair of socks and new shirt. It will make you feel and smell fresher! See #7 for another reason why this is important!
9. Change of shoes
What’s worse? Playing your game in your dress shoes or driving home in your cleats? Answer – they are both terrible! Don’t forget to bring the the right shoes!
10. Cell phone
Last but not least, don’t forget your phone! How else are you going to snap an Instagram?? Did it even happen if there isn’t a photo? #TSSC
