Must Have Dorm Items for College Athletes
When you're a college athlete, you need unique dorm items to help you do your best and succeed in your college career as well as your sports career. College is stressful and hectic as it is. You're going to have college classes all day, sometimes along with a weird schedule of college classes depending on when your required courses are offered. Add a part or full time job to that, plus the sport you're in, and you're going to be incredibly busy. When you're in college, you need to be able to perform to the best of your abilities both in your college courses and in the sport (or sports!) that you're playing in. DormCo offers a variety of college dorm essentials for athletes that will help you to do your best both on and off the field...or track...or pool...or whatever it is that you do best.
Here at DormCo, we know how important your sleep and comfort are to your success in your college classes and the sports you play. We offer a variety of Active Lifestyle Bedding that offers different benefits so you can choose what you need for your dorm bedding in order to get a good night's sleep and help your muscles and body recover so you can perform at the top of your game. If your Twin XL Dorm Bedding isn't comfortable, you're not going to be able to sleep well. When you can't sleep well, you're going to feel sore and tired–and that goes for every college student, no matter if you play a sport or not! Imagine how you would feel if you have an important game coming up and don't get a good night's sleep! It's a bad combination, so make sure you have dorm essentials that offer you plenty of comfort.
To start with, we offer our Dorm Bedding Toppers. These high quality college mattress toppers are a must-have for college students, but especially college athletes who need extra support for their back, legs, and shoulders. Our 5 Zone Mattress Topper provides zoned, targeted pressure-point comfort for each of these areas, with a unique combination of densities and patterns designed to be soft and squishy where you need some comfort and slightly firmer where you need support. For even better sleep in college, choose a dorm mattress topper infused with cooling gel technology. Many college athletes are hot sleepers, and a cooling mattress topper can help your dorm bedding feel more breathable so you won't wake up in a puddle of your own sweat.
The next layer of dorm bedding for guys or girls involved in college sports would be a mattress pad or encasement. Our Dorm Experts recommend choosing a Waterproof Twin XL Mattress Cover. We suggest going for a waterproof mattress encasement so that if you do get a little sweaty at night, you won't have to worry about ruining your dorm mattress. A high quality mattress cover fits over your dorm bed mattress like a fitted sheet and blocks dust mites and allergens for an extra benefit to this dorm necessities item! For college athletes with allergen concerns, this is a great option. Not only will you get a cool, comfortable sleep surface, you'll also get the added benefit of bed bug and allergen protection.
Alongside your dorm room bedding, there are a few other dorm items that can make dorm life easier for student athletes. While you may think of a college first aid kit as for serious emergencies only, having a few necessary first aid supplies on hand can help college athletes recover in the comfort of your dorm room instead of having to trek across campus to the nurse's office for some ibuprofen. If you're feeling particularly sore after practice one day, some of our dorm first aid kits even include instant cold packs, athletic tape, and even electrolyte recovery drink powder to help you easily treat minor sprains and dehydration.
College athletes will also want to consider getting some dorm air freshener. Even if you have great hygiene as a student in sports, there's no denying that some of your college sports equipment can get a little stinky. When your shoes, sports uniforms, or just your practice gear are emitting some funky odors in your dorm room, a quick spray of one of our dorm room scents can offer some relief.
With the advanced technologies in these dorm necessities, you'll be able to help your muscles recover quicker to be able to do your best day after day! Plus you'll have the comfortable, cool sleep surface you need for a quality night's sleep in college!
