- Soccer shoes: Must fit well or they will fly off. Wearing too big or too small of a size could result in blisters. Try shoes on with soccer socks.
- Shin guards are not armor. Sizes XS and S fit most kids up to U10. Shin guards that cover the entire shin are too big and can be more harmful than helpful. A good rule of thumb is to to have the shin guard be the same size as your child's hand.
- Soccer ball: U6-U8 (size 3); U10 (size 4); U13-U18 (size 5/regulation)
- Drink container labeled with your child's name.
