Team Ready Basket


 This post has been sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As a child, I used to love to play soccer with kids in my neighborhood and now, as a Mom, the joy it brings my daughter is so wonderful to see. She loves hearing my own stories of how much it put a huge smile on my face to be working with a team, scoring a goal with my teammates and just enjoying getting up early to practice with everyone.

Johnson & Johnson, the U.S. Soccer Federation, and the U.S. Soccer Foundation are teaming up to provide the next generation of female leaders with the inspiration and support they need to pursue their dreams. Together, we can help her reach those goals. Because she can. Johnson & Johnson is supporting the next generation of female leaders on and off the field by working with the U.S. Soccer Foundation to create the 'Because She Can' Innovation Fund.

Being a Mom myself, I want to share with my daughter that it's not always about being the best person on the team but trying to do the right thing, including passing the ball to your teammates and learning by example from what we can and need to work on, as well our own strengths and weaknesses.

I decided to create a "Team-Ready Basket" with all of the items her and her teammates can enjoy while cheering on one another from the sidelines, including a few snacks, essential items for cuts and bruises, and other important things I think they'll need to help them stay focused.

My daughter and a few team members suffer from allergies so, to keep them focused, I picked up Children's Benadryl® as well as Zytrec® to help them with those annoying running noses, constant sneezing, and itchy eyes. 


Now that the warmer months are coming, I make sure to have Aveeno® Lotion Sunscreen on hand to keep everyone's skin from getting burned no matter what time of day they are playing. I also include a few other fun things that may be needed throughout the game, such as BAND-AID® bandages for cuts and bruises that always seem to happen, a few other first aid supplies, orange slices to enjoy while waiting for their turn to get back into the game, and water bottles to keep them hydrated.


I was able to grab everything at my favorite local retailer. What are some items that you grab or use for your kids playing soccer?

  1. Definitely sun lotion and the children’s Benadryl1 sounds great for allergies - will have to try this. Water to keep rehydrated and fruit for energy!
    Sounds like a fabulous initiative to help your young girls aspire to be female leaders! Amazing! 😊

  2. I always keep bandaids on hand because I never know when the grandkids are going to get hurt playing sports. They love sports and I'm so glad.

  3. I need to put one of these together for the summer. My daughter loves to be outside and is forever falling down, so we go through lots of band-aids.

  4. So many great products. I would be lost without my Zytrec right now because allergies are so bad this year.

  5. These are all such great products. I love that you picked them all up at the same place. Benadryl is a must in our home. We keep it in our first aid kit at home. Thanks for the reccos!

  6. Using J&J products, it looks like you are definitely team ready this year! Even with the best precautions in place, bumps and bruises happen quite often on the field so it's good to have everything on hand ready to go for when it does happen.

  7. It's so important to be prepared. And that Zyrtec comes in handy - all the grass really does a number on our allergies.

  8. A team ready basket for groups is such a great idea! At home we all need to have one of these as well. I like to make one to take outdoors for swim party emergencies!

  9. Yes! My son loves hearing stories from me. It is so important to me having time with each other. (more time) I heard a lot of reviews about Aveeno's products, all are good!

  10. These are definitely all products that are a must during the summer - especially when our kiddos play sports! I always keep bandaids in my purse.

  11. Must have products for the summer! I am taking my kids to a game next week and its outside and this will come in handy

  12. These are exactly what I need for my kid. This basket should always be ready during the summer!

  13. This is a great basket full of much-needed items. I appreciate you showing me this so I can get my basket ready, too!

  14. This is a great idea! When my kids played soccer we always brought sunscreen, but didn't think to bring the other items. Luckily, their coaches were usually prepared with a decent first aid kit and were willing to share band aids with the spectators.

  15. I love this ready basket! What a great to be prepared for those small incidents. I'm making one for our beach area.

  16. I love the idea of a team ready basket! I like being prepared for the worst and this covers pretty much all emergencies!

  17. It looks like you have everything that is needed in that basket! I know a few of those products are must haves in our Medicine cabinet! Band-Aids are always needed in this house.

  18. Love this kit! The only thing we'd add is bug repellant - it's definitely a must here in the South this time of year!

  19. That is a great idea to create a kit for a sporting event.

  20. zyrtec and benadryl are things I need to have on deck when my boys are playing sports.

  21. That Aveeno sunscreen is life! We take it everywhere with us and it works so well. Can't forget the Zyrtec either!

  22. This is a great idea for a team basket! I love that you have healthy foods like fruit instead of little Debbie cakes and unhealthy sweets. I also think it’s a great idea to have the sunscreen, Benadryl, and bandaids in case anyone needs anything!

  23. Such a great idea and a necessity!
