Top 6 Reasons to be Excited for August (Not Dread It)


Are teachers and students excited for August? In short, no. Teachers have so much on their plates getting ready for the school year, so while they may be excited to bring learning to the wold yet again, it’s also a hideously stressful time of year for them. But hey, kids are pumped about school starting up again, right? Right? Maybe Martin Prince, but not everyone else. We have barely over a week left in July, it’s not too early to look toward August. We at Winning Streak like to stay positive, so here are 6 reasons to be excited for August.

1. Football, Football, Football

In mid August, high school football practices start up. We’re not far away from whistles blowing, pads cracking, and sweat flying in every direction. Since we in the St. Louis metro area have been betrayed by our football team, there has never been a better time to dive right into your local high school team’s season. Football is often a rallying point for many other school activities, like…

2. Cheer

What’s a football game without cheerleaders? The start of school requires a heaping helping of school spirit. No one provides more of a shot in the arm for a school’s supply of spirit than the cheer squad.

3. Band

Any talk of school spirit would be hollow without a pep band. Getting the fans into the game along with the cheerleaders, marching on the field…what’s not to love?

4. Soccer

We’ve talked extensively about football, but what about FOOTBALL? Soccer is become ever more popular in the US, and it’s easy to see why. Soccer is a fast paced, exciting sport guaranteed to get your blood pumping.

5. Cross Country 

If you think the athletes in football and soccer are impressive, you would be right. But what happens when those athletes are punished by their coaches? They have to run. For athletes on cross country teams, running is no punishment: it’s a lifestyle.

6. Golf

We’re going to shift gears here, from high octane speed sports to a quieter, but no less intense game. Golf is a sport of skill, and concentration. It may not be the flashiest, but it is a beautiful game and lifelong passion for most players.

Winning Streak is proud to partner with school all across the St. Louis area. Are you in need of some custom gear before school starts up? Give us a call at (888) 570-6194 or email
