You will also need one of Glowproducts.com's glow in the dark basketballs! Unlike our competitor's glowing basketballs, these use LED lights to light, so there's no need to expose it to light before you play. And unlike other battery operated LED basketballs, you just push the button and play. There's no hit-to-activate and you don't have to worry about internal timers turning the ball off on you. So now that you've got the hoop and back board lit up and you've got a Glowproducts.com light up basketball, now all you need to do is mark the players! Use Light Up armbands and 22" glow stick necklaces for the players and you've got yourself a game!

If you're like us, you can't wait for the sun to go down so that you can play Glow in the Dark Soccer! What you will need: One of Glowproducts.com's famous Light Up Soccer Balls, to light up the goal posts use at least 2 EL Wire Kits per post. Or if your field doesn't have proper soccer nets you can use 10"glow sticks with ground stakes for the goal posts. Use 4” glow sticks with stand to lay out the field or you can also use 22" necklaces to line out the field and center line. And remember to mark out any sprinkler heads, hazards or anything else you don't want to run into when playing. To light up the players, it's best to use 22" Glow Necklaces in two different colors, glow bracelets and Light Up Armbands. Now get out there and hit the pitch!
How to set up a Glowing Football Field:
Are you ready for some Glow Football? You'll need one of our excellent Glow in the Dark Footballs of course.

How to Set Up a Light Up Frisbee Golf Course:
Now you too can particpate in one of the world's fastest growing sports - at night! All you need is one light up frisbee per player and 18 of Glowproducts.com's 7" LED Light Sticks and you have the makings for a great evening of Glow in the Dark Disc Golf! This does require a little preparation as you have to mark out each target or "hole" - which can be a pole, sign, tree or other reasonable landmark - prior to playing with a glowing 7 inch LED Light Stick. We like to use the 7" Light Sticks as they are very bright, have a long duration, have a lanyard that you can use to hang them onto your target and you can turn them on and off and are re-usable, unlike regular glow sticks. And once you have finished the "hole" you can take the 7" Light Stick with you and use it the next time you set up a glowing disk golf course. One player is chosen to go first and lights up her frisbee and throws her glowing disc at the "hole" - the object, just like regular golf, is to hit the target with as few throws as possible. Remember to bring a note pad and a pen with you to keep score! The player at the end of the game with the lowest score is the winner.

Glow Camping and Hiking:
Ah, the great outdoors. It's beautiful, awe inspiring and awfully dangerous and it gets really dark out there at night!

Light Up Poi sticks and Poi Balls:
Poi Dancing started in Polynesia and has been exported around the world. People are mesmerized by the fire dance. Now with new smaller and lighter LED technologies, more and more people are taking up poi dancing with LED poi sticks and glow in the dark poi balls - it's a lot safer to dance with LED lights than with fire! If you want to get started with poi dancing a great way to begin is with Glowproducts.com's Light Up Poi Sticks and LED Poi Balls. First put on some music and then just start spinning the poi balls. Next try practicing with the different planes. There is the "wheel" plane, with the poi circling beside you. The "floor" plane, with the poi circling underneath your arm or over your head spinning parallel to the floor. And the "wall" plane where the poi is circling in front of you. After you have practiced these poi moves and then you can start practicing some of the timings. The timings all have to do with where the two poi balls are in relation to one another. So with "same time" the two poi balls rotate at the same speed and time. In "split time" the two poi are rotating so that one poi is reaching the top of its circle while the other poi is hitting the bottom of its circle. And then there is opposite direction and same direction rotations. And then the next poi move to master is "weaving" where the poi is rotated in a figure 8 in front of you. Keep practicing!
Glow Spelunking and Night Diving and Cave Diving:
6" Glow Sticks are a must have for all spelunking adventures, night dives and when cave diving. During night dives, 6" glow sticks have been used for years as tank markers to help identify individual divers so that you can keep track of where everybody is. When using 6" chemlights as a tank marker it's alway best to use different colors so you know the blue marker is Dave, yellow is Sue and so on. So having a colored tank marker you know where your buddy is and the rest of the group can spot you at a distance and knows your location at all times - a crucial safety factor during a night dive. We recommend GlowProducts.com's best Duralume brand 12 hour Premium 6" glow stick that comes with a hook clip and will reliably glow brightly for the full 12 hour duration. Glow in the Dark 6 inch chemlights can also be used to mark dive lines and can also be used as area markers during a dive as well.
With spelunking and cave diving, glow sticks are just as crucial. When spelunking (caving exploring), again, it is critical to be able to identify everyone in your group, so having a chemlight marker on both your front and back is necessary. And by using a good, premium quality glow stick, it will last for a full 12 hours and you will have an emergency back up light - again, extremely important and necessary during cave exploration. The next thing to do is to be able to mark your trail. By using glow sticks as trail markers you will be able to mark out your path or "blaze a trail" through complex cave systems. You can also use glow sticks to mark guide lines and cave hazards as well. So remember, go slow, be deliberate, mark where you are and mark your group, stay safe and enjoy the adventure with glow sticks from Glowproducts.com!
