Growing Up Green: Sports Gear

Does your kid love sports? Maybe they recently started playing, need some extra gear to practice at home, or you want to find fun interests to keep them active? At Kid to Kid, we’re here to help and give a deep dive into some popular kid’s sports and all the fun and equipment that comes with it!

Sports can be incredibly beneficial for children. They offer a chance to learn important values such as teamwork, communication, and leadership while also helping to develop motor skills and boost confidence. Participating in sports can also be a healthy break from electronic screens and provide an opportunity for fresh air and exercise. However, the most important aspect of sports is that it allows children to have fun in a positive and supportive atmosphere.

This game was first invented in 1891 as a way to play indoor sports during winter, and contained rubber ball and peach baskets. It has changed little but gained much popularity and is great to play both indoors and out. We have basketballs, shoes, and clothes so they can shoot hoops in comfort. Because of the quick and fast-paced movements, practice clothes should be breathable, comfortable, and well-fitting to avoid injury. Shoes should be either specifically made for basketball or provide lots of ankle support.

Is your kid in the works to be a star quarterback? Whether it’s peewee, juniors, or flag, football is much loved by boys and girls alike. We carry jerseys, cleats, socks, and footballs! Check with your team coach to have a comprehensive list of all you will need as different age groups and types of football require different kinds of essential equipment. For light or indoor play look for foam and smaller rubber footballs to keep the game going on days when the weather is not ideal!

Are they ready to hit a home run? Baseball is an engaging outdoor field sport where anything can happen! It’s called America’s national pastime and has its own unofficial anthem ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’. We have cleats, socks, jerseys, t-shirts, bats, mitts, and baseballs! Check with your coach about what you will need for practice.

This endurance sport is much loved around the world. The challenging part is getting the ball to the goal without using your hands and an average game could mean running back and forth around 6 miles or more! This sport promotes teamwork, communication skills, agility, and strategy. Look for jerseys, t-shirts, shorts, cleats, soccer balls, goalie gloves, and socks. Don’t forget to also provide them with shin guards and some practice cones!

At Kid to Kid, we strongly believe that every child should have the opportunity to enjoy and participate in sports. That’s why we offer a wide range of affordable sporting equipment to help you stay within budget while ensuring your child has everything they need to play and stay safe. We update our inventory frequently, so be sure to check back often to see what’s in stock. And when your child outgrows their equipment, you can sell it back to us and earn cash for new gear!
