I remember the excitement I had receiving my first sideline team bag as a fellow at Vanderbilt. It was certainly a sturdy bag as I still have it and it has held up better than any bag I’ve purchased since then. It was stocked with various supplies and over the years has seen things come and go from it. As I’ve gone on further in my career, I honestly use it less and less. It’s more of my ‘credibility check’ object to have on me when covering a sports event. Working with very competent athletic trainers, I rely more on their stockpile of things from their bag than mine. I thought it would be fun as we enter another fall season to see what some pediatric sports medicine colleagues have in their bag and what they find most useful and what may just be taking up space.
