Win NEW Gear for Your Daughter!
It’s safe to say that girls in sports are something we should all get behind but, unfortunately, they sometimes fall by the wayside and their teams lack uniforms or gear. Read on to find out how you can win NEW gear for your daughter and her team and why sports are so beneficial!
Let’s face it; the benefits of girls playing sports are numerous. Not only do they maintain better physical health, it helps them to learn team-building and boosts their self-esteem.
In fact, girls who play sports have better grades because they learn how to be organized, know how to set priorities and manage their time. They also have a better all-around emotional well-being too since sports help to boost their self-image and confidence.
It is often said that the path to the boardroom may well go through the girl’s locker room. Since playing sports can help them learn not only team-building skills but, leadership skills too. They learn to be self-reliant and disciplined and believe it or not, girls who play sports learn to use sports vernacular.
They learn to be self-reliant and disciplined and believe it or not, girls who play sports learn to use sports vernacular. That in itself may seem minimal but, it is often used in the real world and in work settings. I say any skill learned makes a huge difference in the long run.
Let Them Shine!
Gabby has always been athletic and within the last few years she has honed her skills and locked down which sports she loves and wants to dedicate her free time to. She has a deep love for basketball and loves to run track and field.
On her spare time, when she’s not writing a story or strumming her guitar, you can find her on a basketball court or running on the treadmill at home. She plays sports throughout the year at her school but also plays basketball outside of school. She is just gearing up for the Spring season and is excited to get started.
While she doesn’t use as much gear or equipment as other sports, having the essentials to give her the flexibility she needs to play are needed. Like athletic gear, basketball shoes, head bands, knee braces, basketballs, water bottles, running shoes for track and more.
Play On and WIN!
Gabby has been lucky that her teams both at school and out of school raise funds to get uniforms. I find the gear is sometimes lacking but, if your daughter’s school is missing one or the other or in desperate need of an upgrade, you can help!
Playtex Sport is asking Canadians to share photos of their old gear (including uniforms) on Instagram for the chance to win new gear for themselves or their team.
It’s quite simple, from April through August; anyone can enter by following @PlaytexPlayOn on Instagram and posting a photo of themselves and/or their team using the hashtag #PlayOnWinGear. Don’t forget to tag @PlaytexPlayOn in the photo too.
A weekly draw will determine the winner(s) and each person in the photo will receive a $100 Sport Chek gift card (up to a maximum of $1500).
That means your whole team can get in on the win and get some new gear to keep kicking butt in sports. If you want more details and want to read up the full rules and regulations, check them out here.
I know my daughter is already on Instagram sharing pictures of her team and their games. Let your kids know about the contest and all they have to do is do a little tagging and hashtagging and they can win big.
Make sure to check out @PlaytexPlayOn on Instagram and let your daughter’s school know about the contest. Feel free to share the contest with all the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles you know too.
Ready to WIN?

There are so many benefits to girls playing sports and I am very happy that Playtex supports them. It is amazing to see that Playtex Sport empowers girls to crush barriers. They are really making a difference with their Playtex Play On Canada Grant Program and their #PlayOnWinGear giveaways.
