Youth Training Gear Guide: Future superstars deserve the very best

Kids Training

Youth training gear is unique. To elevate your game, you need more than smaller sizes and lesser versions of adult products. We’re here to help. We have tons of training apparel and footwear built specifically for the young athlete. Here are some of this season’s top options:

Fitted Clothing

Fitted clothing gives you the style, fit, and comfort you crave during workouts. So what are some of the best products to grab?
You can’t get too far without mentioning Nike Pro Cool Fitted Tops. They’ve got the elite performance, breathability, and look you need.

In terms of style, fun, and moisture-wicking, you’ll want to direct your attention to Under Armour HeatGear t-shirts. These shirts feature your favorite Marvel and DC comic characters, so that you are sure to stand out during every lift and mile.

Compression Clothing

Reduced friction. Moisture-wicking tech. A skin-tight, comfortable fit. Once you take to the gym or the practice field in compression clothing, you’ll never want to be without it. Leading the charge is the massive Nike Pro line. Its fit is unmatched, its performance unparalleled. And there are a TON of options. Seriously, look at this:

Nike Pro

This is a great base layer at a great price point. You’ll stay dry and feel great all day. Available in tights, shorts, and bras.

Nike Pro Cool

Now let’s take things up a notch. Pro Cool gear adds a layer of ventilation and breathability to keep you comfortable and cool. Available in capris, tights, and tops.

Nike Pro Hypercool

The best of the best is Hypercool. These top-of-the-line products have a reflective look to them that actually deflects sunlight away when it hits you, to keep you unbelievably cool and locked in. It’s kind of hard to explain, but you really need to try it, because it’s also hard to beat. Available in tops and bottoms in multiple different lengths.

We’ve also got a lot of great Under Armour HeatGear tops and bottoms. Looking for style? Comfort? Moisture-wicking? HeatGear training has all of these in spades.

Cold-Weather Clothing

When the weather gets colder, your outdoor training gear becomes even more crucial. While some young athletes may take one look at that wind chill or snowfall and decide to take the day off, the very best look at it as a blessing. This is your chance to separate from the pack.

Let’s start things off with the Nike Pro Hyperwarm collection. With mock, crew, half-zip, and tights options available, you can add the warm, snug coverage you need in a style and fit that works with the rest of your outfit. And what better way to complete your look than with Nike Therma clothing? Made with plush, comfortable fleece, the Therma collection is ideal for layering and helping block out the worst that Mother Nature can throw at you.

Under Armour ColdGear has been a leader in the cold-weather clothing department for a while now, and it’s easy to see why. Their fitted tops and bottoms are made with four-way stretch fabric for added mobility, and the Moisture Transport System wicks sweat quickly and effectively. Plus, with chafe-free seams and anti-odor tech, you stay comfortable and your gear stays fresh all workout long.

Kids Training

Footwear

Shoes for running. Shoes for agility drills. There are different types of shoes for seemingly every type of workout, and frankly, it can be hard to keep track. Thankfully, we’ve got the latest, greatest, and most versatile options around so that you can take your training sessions to the next level.

Let’s start with the UA ClutchFit Rebelspeed. A Micro G Foam midsole adds explosiveness to every step, and that ClutchFit upper hugs your foot for an incredibly comfortable fit and great support.

Looking for a lightweight, flexible running shoe? Then the Nike Free RN can’t be beat. Its updated Free 5.0 platform and Flywire cables make every step you take your best one yet. The Nike Zoom Pegasus 33 offers the traction, responsiveness, and fit that young stars need during agility training and lateral movements.

Now here’s the crazy part: We haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of all of our great youth training gear. We have the brands, styles, and sizes that you love. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to take your workouts to the next level.
