Getting the right sportswear for school can be a real hassle, with a number of different styles and brands all shouting for your attention.
However, making the right choices with a P.E kit from the start means less stress for both the student and the parent and it’s well worth making sure you've got the essentials sorted as soon as possible.
For the essential boys PE kit, start with a polo shirt and shorts. If you want a few different options in one try a reversible multi-sport shirt, with a two-tone colour option. This is a good choice for boys playing a number of different sports such as rugby, hockey and football.
Opt for a Trinity tracksuit top and bottoms and you quickly and easily complete the basic kit.
However it is worth noting that hoodies and fleeces are a good optional extra for colder weather or sports that are primarily based outdoors. They can be worn on and off the sports field and make warming up much easier.
For those that play in sports teams there are a few other optional extras that can be added to a kit, including rugby shirts and football shirts by well-known brands such as Adidas and Nike, hockey wear by Grays and basketball clothing by Errea. Take note of the type of fabrics used by each, as this will give you more choices about price and durability. The Milan football shirt for example offers an 'International standard shirt' made of Osmosis fabric and mesh side panels.
With the essentials taken care of and the optional extras selected your PE kit will be complete in no time.
