I have two very active boys in my life.

The Ultimate Back to School Haul for Active Boys

With back to school shopping in full swing now that we near the end of the summer, it’s time for the whole family to stock up on affordable, quality brands at Academy Sports + Outdoors.

And with those two very active boys, back to school also means back to sports…at least the activities we consider sports around here.

My eldest son, Christian, is an ambitious member (and section leader #proudmom) in his high school marching band. Which means early mornings, athletic wear and comfort all play a major role in his sport of choice.

I was able to get him this awesome Nike Lunch Duffel in blue to keep quick snacks on the practice field both chilled and chill. And since the weather in Oklahoma during marching band season can be temperamental I also picked up a pair of Nike Men’s Dry Training Shorts for the hotter mornings (bonus that these were on clearance as well as already being awesomely affordable) and a pair of Adidas Men’s BTS Fleece Pants & Nike Men’s Sportwear Hoodie for those much cooler mornings on the field.

When Christian isn’t participating in his extracurriculars, he needs a great backpack to carry everything he needs for his high school and college credit classes. I snagged him this SwissGear Aidan Computer Backpack that is perfect for transport.

My youngest son, Charlie, is active all of the time. He loves running around, playing sports and generally moving his body. I was thrilled to be able to find a bunch of back to school essentials for my other active kiddo at Academy Sports + Outdoors too. It truly makes the process much easier for mom to be able to get everything we need in one, affordable place.

I grabbed him a few pairs of these Nike Boys’ Elite Basketball Shorts, these awesome Nike Boys’ Therma-FIT Training Pants, and a pair of these Under Armour Boys’ X Level Scramjet Running Shoes in the bright yellow and orange because they make him play with the fire of a thousand suns. I also snagged him this super rad, Nintendo Super Mario Insulated Lunch Kit and both my boys a 36 oz YETI Rambler to keep themselves hydrated throughout their days.
