Basketball Checklist: Apparel, Equipment & Accessories For The Court

Use this checklist to stock up on all your essentials for basketball season

Take your hoops game to the next level with this complete basketball equipment checklist from DICK’S Sporting Goods.

Show the competition you’ve come to play with the right equipment. Start from the ground up with the performance basketball shoes. Choose a crisp pair of uniform shoes to match your whole roster, then hit the courts for post-game or practice in your own personal pair. Speed players may opt  for lightweight low-top shoes, while aggressive power players can harness their game in classic high tops.  Make your mark with a variety of fresh colors and styles.

You’ll need warmup suits and jackets for pre-game, and comfortable basketball shirts, T-shirts and practice jerseys, and it’s always a good idea to keep a basic fleece hoodie in your locker. Fortify yourself on the court with compression layers — like shorts and tanks or shooter sleeves and leg sleeves.

Every player needs an extra basketball, ball pump and needle. And it’s the details that make the difference in your game — like water bottles, cooling towels, wristbands, protective mouthguard and other basketball accessories. Earbuds or oversized headphones can get you motivated to face down the competition.

Pack up all your gear in a sleek basketball bag, perfect for storing your toy shoes, ball and post-game gear. For more, shop the entire collection of basketball apparel and equipment at DICK’S Sporting Goods.
