Soccer tryouts are in full swing right now and that means moms and dads are starting to plan for the upcoming season. We know the basic soccer gear that the kids will need; soccer ball, shin guards, water bottle, and uniform. And soccer moms and dads need a comfortable chair, blanket, and reliable umbrella. But there’s a lot more that you need to keep your entire family comfortable during soccer season. You’ll spend countless hours on the sideline in all types of inclement weather cheering on your favorite athlete. So it’s time to stock up on the things all soccer moms and dads really need before your kid takes the field.
Be ready for what mother nature has in store this year. Soccer moms and dads need to be prepared for the heat, rain, wind, cold, and even snow. Most coaches only cancel if there’s lightning in the area. But the Under the Weather pop-up pod has you covered no matter the weather forecast. The all-season pods are lightweight, easy to carry, and pop up and fold down in just seconds. There are several sizes to choose from to fit all your family’s needs.
