My child is new to playing soccer. What do they need?

Shoes - either tennis shoes or cleats, cleats would benefit them because sometimes the morning games there is dew on the ground. Make sure they are NOT baseball/softball cleats because those shoes have an extra cleat on the toe and this will need to be removed before playing. You can pick up used shoes at a used sporting goods shop (especially the small shoes) i.e.: Play It Again Sports.

Shin guards - Any type will do. The rule only specifies that there be no plastic exposed, so make sure the sock covers the whole shin guard. There are many types to choose from depending on your child’s comfort, cost range from $5 to $60.

Ball - It is not absolutely necessary to buy a ball, coaches are issued balls with their coaching bag, but it would benefit your child when practicing at home. Size depends on division.
