Sports and Outdoor Play for 13-14 Year Old Boys

Sometimes it can be challenging to find ways to get our 13-14 year old boys away from in front of those very appealing TV, console, computer, and cell phone screens. We all know that fresh air, exercise, and vitamin D are essential for growing teens, so I have collected a few fun gifts that will lure those boys outside and/or get them active. Other ideas include sporting equipment for any sports your boy is into, or the necessary shoes and clothing for their particular sport.

Ripstik Caster Board

Ripstik Caster Board

mediumThe Ripstik Caster Board is a cross between a skateboard and a snowboard, so it’s like you are surfing or snowboarding on wheels. This board has only two wheels which means it can make quick, smooth 360-degree turns. Flip it. Rotate it. Balance on one end of it. Which tricks can you master?

Everlast 70-Pound MMA Heavy-Bag Kit

let off some steam

Everlast 70-Pound MMA Heavy-Bag Kit

This punching bag is great for beginners and will allow your boy to expend a bit of energy and to release any frustration. And in the process, he will get a bit of exercise as well. Be warned that you will need a good space to install this bag – you will need an area of about 6 foot x 6 foot. Make sure that he uses the wraps and the gloves so he doesn’t hurt himself.

Banshee Quad Youth Compound Bow Archery Set

Banshee Quad Youth Compound Bow Archery Set

Great archery set for a beginner, but please note that this is not a toy. The bow is lightweight and powerful and uses a system of pulleys to reduce the amount of force needed to hold the string back, giving time to aim without the strain. The set comes with two arrows. It would probably be wise to also purchase some extra arrows.

Portable Basketball System

Portable Basketball System

highIt’s easy to position this basketball hoop wherever you want it because of the rolling base. This hoop will grow with your boy, extending from 7.5 to 10 feet high (in 6-inch increments). The 48-inch backboard is UV protected so that it won’t degrade outdoors. And, being made from tough Makrolon polycarbonate, it can stand up to the energetic or rough play your 13 or 14-year old might throw at it.

  1. Hey, I’m a twelve year old girl and
    I’m looking for a present for my yet to be 13 year old friend. I have known him for 9 years but I have no idea what to get him, he isn’t really into building Lego etc or video games. People say he’s a bit gay… he doesn’t really like puzzles or outdoor activities. Help me find something! !.
