Water Activities

Keep cool and have fun with various water sporting activities at the beach, lake and river, or in the comfort of your own backyard pool. With popular watersports brands like Connely, O’RAGEOUS, O’brien, HO Sport, Intex, Speedo and Nike, Academy Sports + Outdoors has just the right gear for all of your aquatic adventures.


Swimming is not only a great full body workout, but is also a low-impact workout, making it ideal for anyone recovering from sports injuries. Because water is a constant force of resistance that requires a combination of cardio and strength, swimmers benefit with every stroke. Turn a fun dip in the pool into a complex workout by performing simple movements while submerged in water. Step up the challenge by intensifying your water workout with Speedo aquatic fitness accessories, such as the barbell and belt combo, power paddles, or the pull buoy for a total body workout.


Take the fun beyond your backyard and into beaches, lakes and rivers. Get creative with water tubes and water towables, which can be used from relaxing along gentle river currents, to ripping across waves while attached to jet boats and jet skis. For extreme fun, hook up your wakeboard to a motorboat and catch some air. Don’t forget your water shoes, which will protect your feet and let you thoroughly explore tide pools, lakebeds, and river streams.
