I am a big fan of subscription boxes and definitely don't discriminate between the various types. I recently discover a subscription box for sports fans called Sports Box Co. and received their Gridiron Box.
So what exactly is Sports Box Co. all about? Sports Box Co is a youth sports subscription box company. They offer boxes for kids of all ages across several sports: baseball, softball, basketball, and hockey. Customers can order monthly, 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month subscription terms. These subscriptions make great gifts for kids so they appeal to parents, grandparents, and anyone that needs a fun, unique gift for a young athlete.
What's in the box? Each month, the Sports Box Co. boxes include a customized assortment of training aids, gear, accessories & other fun sports swag along with a monthly tip card to encourage your athlete to practice more and improve their skills.
That's all great, but what's up with my box? The Gridiron Box #11 is themed for season prep and player growth. Players of all ages need to understand that the most important measure of growth exists within themselves. You may be competing against others but everyone has a different skill set and next timetable in their growth as a player, mentally and physically. Stay within yourself, work hard, have fun playing and measure your growth based on your own improvement. Be the best player you can be for the team. Every new season means new opportunities for you and your team to control your own destiny. Work hard from day one and earn your spot on the team; it doesn't matter if you are the starting QB or a backup player; everyone on the team needs to earn or keep their spot with hard work every day.

For my family, this box was super excited. I like football, but I don't go crazy over it. My husband, on the other hand, does. My 4-year-old son is also starting to get into football. When I showed my son what was in the box and what it does he was super excited and had fun for hours!
In the box we received:
Football shaped Pin
Battle Oxygen Airflow Mouth Guard
Franklin Eye Stick
Sklz Solo Trainer

Starting as low as $26.99/month, I have to say, this box is pretty neat. The football pin is an engraved wood style and very nice quality. I love the details applied and honestly, it just looks cool and a nice collector's item piece. While the mouth guard was a slight bit too big for my 4-year-old, my 9-year-old was able to actually fit it really well. The eye stick looks like a tube of lipstick, so I had to warn my daughter of what it was, but when I showed her and my son what it was by applying it under their eyes, they thought they looked silly and had fun with it. The solo trainer is super cool as well. Adding the football in was a breeze and it stayed secure. Not to mention the part that goes around your waist is adjustable so just about anybody can use it!
I was so impressed with the quality of the items in the box. Nothing was poorly or cheaply made. In fact, it was all very nice quality that you would expect to find in a local sports store. So ultimately I put my 4-year-old in his favorite football gear and let him give everything a go, minus the mouth guard with it being a bit too big for him. He put on his black eye stick, with the help of mommy of course, put his new cool football pin on his jersey, we put the football in the solo trainer and attached it his waist and went outside. When I say my son had a blast, he was outside for hours playing. He felt like a real football player. While we definitely have to work on his football handling skills, this box helped us with getting him active outside without worrying about the football going into the busy street. An item we never thought of looking for or buying.
At the end of the day, this box is awesome. The only change I would recommend to the company is including a card that told you what is in the box and some info about it, maybe tips for use of the items, and maybe even the pricing of each item in the box. Otherwise, this box was amazing and arrived just in time for football season! If you or someone you know is a sports fan, I highly recommend checking out Sports Box Co.
