August 29, 2023 2 min read

The last long weekend before the start of school is just around the corner, and what better way to make the most of it than by planning a sports weekend getaway? Whether your team is a group of seasoned athletes or just looking to have some active fun, a sports-filled weekend can create lasting memories and strengthen those bonds. To ensure you're fully prepared for an amazing time, we've put together a comprehensive checklist to help you plan the perfect family or friends sports weekend.

1. Choose the Right Destination

The first step in planning a sports weekend is selecting a destination that caters to everyone's interests. Consider destinations with a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking trails, biking routes, water sports, or even a family-friendly sports event. Look for spots with easy access to sports facilities and rental options to make your trip more convenient.


2. Pick Your Activities


Decide on the sports and activities everyone wants to participate in. Whether it's a game of beach volleyball, a soccer tournament, or simply playing ball at the park, having a clear plan will ensure that everyone is excited and engaged throughout the weekend.

3. Gear Up!

Before embarking on your sports weekend, make sure everyone has the appropriate gear. From comfortable sportswear to balls and nets, having the right equipment is essential for a safe and enjoyable experience (when it comes to the latter, we've got you covered).

4. Stay Hydrated and Energized


Staying active requires plenty of energy and hydration. Pack healthy snacks like granola bars, nuts, and fruits to keep everyone fuelled throughout the day. Don't forget to bring an ample supply of water to prevent dehydration, especially during hot outdoor activities.


5. Capture the Memories


Document your sports weekend with photos and videos that you can look back on for years to come. Assign someone to be the designated photographer or take turns capturing each other's memorable moments. These visual memories will be cherished and bring smiles long after the weekend is over.


6. The Most Important Step: Have Fun!


Amid all the planning and preparation, don't forget the ultimate goal of your weekend getaway – to have a blast! Embrace the spirit of adventure, let go of worries, and simply enjoy each moment. 


So, release your inner child, encourage friendly competition, and let the fun flow naturally – after all, it's the memories of the fun you had together that will stay with you forever.
