DegreeGirl Don’t Fret the Sweat iHome Player and Gift Set Giveaway

The DegreeGirl  “Don’t Fret The Sweat” campaign recently awarded $20,000 to five winning cheerleading teams of the Degree Girl Varsity Awards on their Facebook page. These cool and confident teams told DFTS how they were able to come together to overcome sweat-inducing moments and then rallied their communities to vote for them on Facebook. In celebration of the winning teams is hosting a giveaway a Degree Girl gift set for you, too!

The giveaway package includes:

  • iHome – inspiring teams to get active before, during or after practice, with quick and easy music access
  • Degree Girl Just Dance deodorant
  • Degree Girl gym bag to hold gear
  • Degree Girl water bottle to stay cool during workouts

The Degree Girl team sent us one of the giveaway sets to keep so we could give you our take on each item in the set. The iHome player is a fun docking station and speaker for your iPod that changes colors as the music plays. It charges your iPod while it plays music – perfect for practices, relaxing in your room or hanging out with friends. My 13-year old daughter immediately took the iHome to her room and it has become a part of her decor.

In addition, the gift set comes with a black gym bag for carrying all your gear to and from practice. The bag is very roomy and has plenty of pockets, too. The Degree Girl is my teen’s new favorite deodorant – according to her, it smells good and after using it for the past few weeks of gymnastics practices she has asked for a second one to keep in her locker.

So, how do you win this gift set for yourself?

I remember my first softball game, and how badly I played. But I also remembered my father’s advice to keep trying, and in time, I improved.


I was very nervous when I did my 1st Cheer competition last year but the older teams encouraged me to just have fun. My “big sisters” on the older teams said good luck & gave me gifts. I had so much fun & now I am hooked on Competitve Cheer. I am now on 2 competitive cheer teams!


I love volleyball and I remember several tournaments that really tested me as well as the team as a whole. When you get down to the finals of a tournament mentally you have to be very strong to not let your nerves get the best of you physically and mentally. But I absolutely love it!


When I would try a new gymnastics move it would always test my nerves, but once I tryed it a few times it wasn’t as scary.


I am a new twitter follower and left you a message. ?


I like both on facebook and left a post on Don’t Fret The Sweat.
