Soccer Gear for Kids

Soccer equipment is about the same for all ages. You need some socks, shin guards and cleats for stability and speed; also you want to make sure to do proper research. Now research can be asking either friends or other soccer players for their experience. It could be looking around on the internet, doing some searches or maybe head into a store and ask for help.

Be sure to look out for discount gear as well, or maybe even consider buying used equipment. It can be expensive to play soccer today, so taking used equipment into consideration might not be such a bad idea. The price on a pair of soccer cleats today varies a lot. Prices are from 50 dollars to over 200 dollars for the high end shoes.

As a parent buying soccer gear for your kid you want to pay attention to the quality that you are buying. If you are looking for a pair of cleats, you need to pay attention to the regulation rubber that gives traction and stability on the field when running around. You can divide soccer cleats into 3 categories. Normally we use firm ground cleats which are the most normal conditions the fields are in. This cleat has fewer studs than the hard ground cleats. A soft ground cleat which is the last category refers to wet or muddy grounds. Most professional players use soft ground cleats today because the teams normally sprinkle the fields before kick-off.

Think in short terms when buying equipment for your child. A pair of cleats will probably be replaced the next season in which it will make sense to buy either cheaper or used cleats. Also make sure to buy shoes they will be able to move around in. Make sure the size is ok and for that use your thumb to measure it. There should be no further than a thumb between your child’s toe and the end of the shoe. You do want to make sure that the shoe is the right size. This will help from getting injuries and blisters and will be much more comfortable. When buying cleats you need to pick an upper surface material. Leather is the most common material and synthetic leather is also an option. Older players should get leather cleats and maybe even kangaroo leather which is very soft it gives you a very good feel of the ball. Kids should go for synthetic leather which cheaper and also very easy to clean. They won’t give you as good a feel with the ball as leather but you will still be ok.

I hope this article has helped your research to find the right soccer equipment for your kid.
