27 Gift Ideas for Sporty Tween Girls

Two tween girls sitting on a gym ball - sporty girl gifts

You thought you were trendy? Meet your sporty tween gal who is bringing her groove to the predominantly masculine world with all the sassiness she can gather and beat them at it!

Days we used to believe women were for the kitchen are long gone. The Gen Z girls are clearly showing that they can have their cake and eat it as well.

Don’t assume sporty always means tomboy. Your tween girl’s love for sports and active hobbies can still be combined with a feminine touch, whilst others will love gender-neutral colors and patterns. You will need to judge this based on your tween’s own personality and interests.

Here’s our suggested tween gift guide for your pre-teen girls who are athletic and sporty.

Your athletic tween girl will scream HER heart out with such a gift. Who wouldn’t? This bike knows no terrain, snow, mountain, beach, or road, thanks to its wide tires.

This will only mean your tween has no dull days with such a gift as she will ride it irrespective of the weather. The fat tires also add up for stability when your tween is out there doing what she loves most.

Skateboard and Safety Gear

CAPARK Skateboards for Beginners Adults Youths Teens Kids Girls Boys 31 Inch Pro Complete Skate Boards 7 Layer Canadian Maple Double Kick Concave Longboards (Ocean)

Your tween does not fancy screen time over sporty outdoor activities? Get her an eye-catching, anti-slippery ready-to-ride skateboard with safety gear (including one helmet, two elbow pads, two knee pads, and two wrist guards) to ensure she is safe while cruising the streets.

This is one of those presents that leaves you on edge, but with the safety gear, you can comfortably sip your coffee on the balcony as you enjoy the show, your tween being the star!

Portable Goals

Your tween girl will appreciate this gift, especially if she is into ball games.

It is a gift she can assemble independently, get her groove on, and get the ball rolling.

She can also carry it to the park, where her mates will join in, allowing her to learn teamwork, coordination, and social skills as they have fun.

Snorkel Sets

Zenoplige Mask Fins Snorkel Set Adults Men Women, Swim Goggles 180 Panoramic View Anti-Fog Anti-Leak Dry Top Snorkel and Dive Flippers Kit with Gear Bag for Snorkeling Swimming Scuba Diving Training

Is your tween girl a Hydrophile? This will be the right present to gift HER. With these set up HER sleeves, your sporty girl can live underwater (if only that were possible!).

Active Flyer Frisbee

Still at crossroads on which birthday presents to get your sporty tween girl? A frisbee pack will be a perfect gift as it doubles up as a pool toy.

This will be a fun game for your tween and fam while ensuring no one’s fingers are hurt (and everybody’s head is intact!).

It will help grow your tweens’ hand-eye coordination and motor skills.

Sports Bottle

You will want to ensure that your sporty girl is hydrating when out there in the field. You make it possible by getting her a gift of a fantastic sports bottle that is leakproof.

With a sports bottle that draws attention, she will indeed hydrate!

Sports Shoes

Gifts for sporty girls must include a nice pair of sneakers. Lightweight sports shoes will come in handy as they will allow your tween to participate in sports confidently and not hurt her feet from complex objects.

 Remember, your girl loves bright-colored stuff! It’s hard when they’re feet are transitioning quickly, some tween girls will be able to quickly transition to a ladies-sized runner whilst others are caught on the cusp of too small and girlish requiring “Big Kids” sizes until well into their teens (the transition size is around a US 5.5).

Mini Tabletop Pool Set

It comes equipped with two ping pong paddles, two pool cues, and every other game piece needed in playing foosball, table tennis, billiards, or air hockey.

Sports Bra

One of the most thoughtful gifts for a sporty girl. Your tween’s breasts are developing at this stage in life, so they will feel far more comfortable continuing their sporty pursuits in a sports bra.

This pack has three cotton sports bras (two solid colors and one tie dye). Why not get them a trendy bra that will look cute and still serve its purpose? Puberty need not be a reason they give up on their favorite activities.

Small Hand Weights

Are you looking for gifts for sporty girls? Pick the small weights, which comprise two bars, four medium discs, and four small discs.

These weights will help your tween strengthen her muscles for whatever sports she’s pursuing, an excellent and super practical addition to her sporting equipment.

Workout Clothes

Garden Games

While we are gifting your sporty gal, the whole family has to get healthy as they get involved in the games. A good deal it is.

The entire family is assembling in the backyard to get the birdie in the air! It includes four birdies( two red birdies for slow play and two yellow birdies for fast play), one ball, and two wooden paddles and doubles up as an indoor game as well.

As it is a fast pacing game, your tween’s motor skills and hand-eye coordination will develop. It will be a blast gift for your tween as it also comes with a carrying bag.

Nice Deodorants

The one present that will get your tween squealing is an excellent deodorant that will leave her smelling sweet and fresh.

Wait till she showcases her hard-earned shots; she’ll be over the moon.

Customized Bedding

Imagine how your tween would feel if she comes home from her sports to find her bed made up in New beddings customized to her favorite sport? Tears will just run down her hot cheeks as she tries to get it all in.

The thought of sleeping snuggled in her fav sports sheets is thrilling. What more if you gifted her? This set includes one bedspread and two pillowcases. This is the real deal gift!

She will much better concentrate on what she is doing, thus, achieving the required result. The ball prints on the headphones are an added advantage as it will motivate your tween in her newfound passion.

Pool Toys

Have you noticed that your sporty girl is more into water sports? The pool toys would be a great gift to encourage and motivate her.

This comprehensive diving set boasts five torpedo pool toys, five diving sticks, five diving rings, and five diving fishes.

The catch to this set is that the diving rings and sticks can stand upright at the bottom of the pool; thus, your tween’s diving skills are honed as she enjoys this gift.

Action Camera

At this stage of development, your tween is the queen, and we are the audience. So why not gift her with an action camera that will capture these memorable moments for her?

This action camera comes with an excellent waterproof function (to capture your tween while underwater), has a built-in electronic image stabilizer (producing stable videos), built-in wifi, and HDMI output (for your tween to post her instagrammable pics). It also comes with two rechargeable batteries (1050 mAH), a charger, and a remote control wristband.

Ankle Socks

This is a six-pair pack that is specifically designed for your tween’s athletic legs. This pack of socks significantly reduces impact and friction(between her legs and sports shoes), helping to keep away the blisters and preventing your tween’s legs from chaffing.


When your tween girl spends half her day in the sun, we will need to protect her delicate skin from sunburns.

Gift her mild and gentle sunscreen for her sensitive skin. The sunscreen should also be tear-free and sting-free, ensuring no painful distractions triggered by her sweat.

This sunscreen is also water-resistant, meaning your mermaid tween will comfortably swim while wearing it.

Bike Wheel Lights

Letting your tween ride safely even when it’s dark, these LED lights are a fantastic and fun way to ensure she can still be seen out on the roads at night.

Choose the color to suit your tween’s bike and personality because every tween deserves a little bit of bling!

Exercise Ball

An exercise ball has many practical uses for your athletic tween girl. Not only are they great to sit on for posture at their desk, but there’s a great variety of at-home workouts they can try that use an exercise ball. It’s also a great way to stretch out after they’ve been playing sports.

Available in a wide range of colors, we suggest choosing a 45cm (17.5″) ball if your sporty girl is still under 5′ for the best possible fit.

While your gifts should not be limited to the above, these gift ideas will help you get a head start on finding your tween sporty gifts. Show your tween that it is okay to be sporty and feminine by bringing gifts matching both personalities.
