It is important to know how to pack field hockey bags if your team has an away game. Make a list of all of the items you need to take with you. Set the gear aside well in advance, so you do not forget anything. Wash your field hockey uniform, and if you need any accessories such as athletic tape or an extra pair of socks, make sure you have them ready to pack in field hockey bags on game day.
- Make sure field hockey bags are large enough for all of your gear. Unless you intend to carry your hockey stick with you, the bag will have to be long enough for the stick to fit inside. If you have some zippered compartments inside and outside of the bag, use them to store tape, your field hockey cleats, and any other items you want to take with you.
- You may want to use field hockey bags that are waterproof. If you are going to leave your bag on the sideline during the game, a rainstorm may cause the bag to leak. Try to pack field hockey bags so that they do not leak or use plastic bags and containers to store the gear inside the bag that you are not using during the game.
- Pack field hockey bags early. If you are running late on game day, trying to pack your bag only adds to your stress. Pack your field hockey bag the night before, and leave it unzipped. If you need to grab something from the bag, or add something to it, you will be able to without causing any further delays.
- Make sure field hockey bags are stored properly. If you are going to an away game on a team bus, you should always try to watch the equipment manager load your bag into the storage compartment, so you will be able to quickly find it once the bus stops at the location. If you are traveling by car, make sure the bag is stored in the trunk away from any materials that may scratch or soil the bag.
