Sporting Goods Terminology and Tips

Sporting goods retailers offer the gear you need for your favorite games and activities. Fans usually know the items they need to play their favorite game, but there are others who struggle to make the choices or find the right products. Many parents shopping for items for their child's youth league struggle to understand the terminology. Here's a quick guide to terms with which people are often unfamiliar.

  • Athletic Supporter – This goes hand in hand with a protective cup to hold it in place during a game. This equipment is essential for boys and men playing games where they may get hit below the belt by another player or a ball.
  • Cleats – Cleats are a form of sneaker that have spikes on the bottom to help with traction. Cleats are usually the shoes athletes wear when playing baseball, football and soccer.
  • Discounted Goods – Many items are sold used as well as new to help people save money. While you may not want to purchase shoes or apparel new, many items like helmets, chest protectors and outdoor mountain bikes save you half the original cost when you buy used. Be cautious when purchasing these items online because you may not be able to see the damage.
  • Sports Equipment – Every game requires different apparel and gear. For baseball, bats, balls and batting helmets are essential. In basketball, sneakers with ankle support, a basketball and a hoop are necessary. In tennis, you need rackets and tennis balls. For golf, purchase clubs, tees and golf balls. If you're unsure what items you'll need ask one of the salespeople for help.
