Sports Moms Must Haves

Updated: Jan 7

I have three boys between the ages 4 and 9. I am destined to be a sports mom for a while, and I am embracing it. Right now, my oldest is in his soccer season, and all three of my dragons are about to begin t-ball/baseball season. (They also do Judo, take swimming lessons in the summers and play tennis and golf with their dad.) It is a lot of work keeping up with their schedules, making sure their gear is always ready for them, entertaining the little one during practices/games etc. Having the right materials helps everything go smoother, adds comfort, and some add a little fun too!

**I am not a medical professional. Always consult with health professionals about products for your kids like sunblock and bug spray.


1.A shady spot to sit. I really like the double chair with the umbrella linked below. Although my kids have their own chairs, they have been preferring to sit on the ground and play on blankets during soccer games. I like this blanket because it is a waterproof bottom in case the ground is wet, and one that easily folds up and I don't have to try and stuff in a bag. If its really hot, like towards the end of baseball season, we bring a canopy. We have had a great experience with this one and it is reasonably priced. And, of course we use at much more than just sporting events. If you are going to be on bleachers, save your back and your butt with these portable cushion seats.

2. A good bag for your essentials, and the essentials - sunblock, water, snacks, sunglasses etc. (Note- snacking is such a big topic that I will have an entire article on that.) I just came across this bag and I thought it was funny because it's true, but I personally have this water-resistant baseball bag. (BTW I have an entire article on sunblock which you should read here.) And, what I carry everywhere - Wet Ones! I probably don't have to explain this but just in case, the kids are playing in the dirt and they want snacks...just grab a wet one!


3. Wardrobe and accessories. I love showing my boys support in all the ways I can so cute shirts and donning their number is a must for me! I cut vinyl for the other soccer moms so we can match haha.

4. Things you might need. If you have sporting events that are all day or all weather, you might need some of these items.









Have fun cheering on your sports players!

I love this! I'm definitely a sports mom and I have spent many early mornings, days, and late evenings watching my kids play sports. It is nice to be prepared!

What an awesome list! I’ll be having to refer to this when my sporty little guy gets a little older.

Having one of those little fans is a good idea for camping and for when we are going to spend time outdoors at other events in the summer.. And getting one of those carts to load all our gear in has been long pending ..

"Nothing in this bag belongs to me" that is hilarious! I need to show that to my friend who's constantly at baseball, soccer and basketball games with her kids.
