A player’s sports gears are the first line of defense against injuries and other harmful factors from the field. The proper equipment makes a lot of difference in protecting the players from harm, so one must not hold back in acquiring quality sports gears and apparel. Safety gears should be ensured that they are in good condition, no damages, or at the very least, have minimal repairs. Sports equipment also enhance the players’ performance by giving them more freedom of movement, comfort (such as sweat absorption features), and leverage in the playing field (swimsuits made out of polyurethane). The gears are, in many ways, an extension of the players’ skills and talents, so here are some equipment you might want to look at while dreaming for that Olympic spot.


In a game where high jumps and powerful spikes and serves happen every five seconds, clothing that doesn’t get in the way of movements are the best options. Tie your hair up, wear long sleeves if you bruise like a peach to protect your arms from the ball’s impact, and choose your fabric very carefully. Adidas’ Climalite is a customized fabric especially made to keep sweat at bay and the body cool. Its technology allows Climalite to pull the sweat away from the body to the outer surface, while the lightweight polyester-based construction keeps the body cool and dry (bye chafing!). This performer tights from Adidas hugs your legs perfectly and bears the colors of the US flag.

The ASICS Gel Rocket 8 Volleyball shoes carry ASICS’ trademarked TRUSSTIC technology in the middle part of the rubber sole. Its stability prevents twisting that can lead to ankle injuries. It has a forefoot gel cushioning system that protects the feet from impact whenever you land from a jump.


One of the most exhausting sports out there is swimming, and it is literally breathtaking. Because swimmers’ sports gears are meant to get wet, the most important factor to consider is the fabric that you’ll wear underwater. They should be comfortable in every stroke of your arms and legs, and must not hinder your ability to breath because we all know that breathing is key to getting to the other side of the pool. This Sporti Light Wave Piped Splice Jammer Swimsuit is made of Lycra® Xtra Life, a fiber technology that lasts five to ten times longer than the ordinary Spandex and resists degradation from chlorine. Its FIT technology also protects the swimsuit from deterioration brought by sunscreen, body oils, and heat.

The goggles is another important sports gear for a swimmer. Its fit, comfort level, and clarity of sight when worn must be ensured before deciding on one.

Figure skating

The ice is a tricky stage, and what you use to navigate it is of utmost important. One of the most beautiful sports in the world, figure skating is also one of the most expensive. Professional figure skaters wear off their skates in 8 to 10 rounds of practice, so choose the best. The biggest factor that you have to consider is the fit. Geoff Sarjeant, a former ice hockey professional, said, “You should feel it being wrapped around your whole foot, and in general, both skates fit probably one to 1 1/2 and, in some instances, two sizes underneath your shoe size.” Choose the ones that are the most flexible and apt for your skill level so that you don’t slip on the ice.

Why not start them young? The Jackson Ultima Ice Figure Skates Marquis JS1993 is for kids with an intermediate level of skill. It has covered hooks to prevent ankle irritation and Ultima Mirage all-purpose blade attached with screws.

When it comes to costumes, this is where the athletes get all the fun. Many high-fashion designers have created the costumes of the most prolific figure skaters, and although the stretchy fabrics are not that heavy, costumes can weigh up to 3 lbs due to the embellishments like crystals and pearls.
