Degree(r) First Team Tryout Giveaway

School is back in session and that means fall sports are in full swing.  Did your child try out for any sports at school this year?

My daughter did. She tried out for the high school cheer squad after making the decision to retire from competitive gymnastics. She made the Junior Varsity squad (Freshman are not allowed to be on the Varsity squad at her school) and is now experiencing sweat inducing moments like she has never experienced before! It’s one thing to compete on a balance beam 4 feet off the ground in front of a random audience, but it is another thing all together to be on top of that cheer stunt in front of hundreds of your classmates and the glare of the stadium lights in your eyes. 

Thanks to a promotion we did last year with DegreeGirl, she no longer worries about the sweat part of her practices or games. She and my younger daughter ask for Degree deodorant specifically and they each keep a stick in every one of their gym bags/back packs. 

We have been given the opportunity to work with Degree® again and have another great giveaway to share with you. 


We will be giving one lucky reader this cool Puma duffle bag filled with…

Essentials for practice, home and away games!  Here’s what you’ll find in the Degree® deodorant first team tryout, first away game bag:

  • Puma duffle bag
  • Sony headphones
  • Sports water bottle
  • Degree® branded water bottle
  • Two Degree® deodorant sticks

The Degree® team sent us one of the giveaway sets to keep so we could give you our take on it. The Puma bag is very roomy and will easily hold training clothes, tennis shoes, snacks, headphones and portable electronics (there is even a special compartment for them) and water bottles with room to spare. The Sony headphones are sleek but cushioned and do a great job cancelling out unwanted noise so your athlete can get “in the zone” or just relax on that noisy bus. Two different water bottles will ensure your athlete always has essential fluids to drink. And of course, there are two sticks of the Degree Expert Protection Motion Sense deodorant – in Active Clean and Fresh Energy scents. 

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