EQUIPMENT - WHAT PLAYERS NEED

Water!

Be sure to supply your child with water at all practices and games. Pop or other sugar drinks are not recommended before or after games.

Uniforms

A uniform consisting of jersey, shorts and socks is provided for your child’s use at the beginning of the season and is yours to keep when the season ends. You are responsible for taking care of the full uniform. Uniforms should not be worn at practice, only for scheduled games. For the safety of the children, no names may be put on the back of the uniforms. Any and all other apparel (coats, sweatshirts, pants, etc.) must be worn underneath the uniform.

Soccer Shoes (Cleats)

Soccer shoes are not required, but strongly suggested. Soccer shoes must have rounded cleats with a flat head. No toe cleats. Cleats must be made of molded rubber, polyurethane or plastic. Check out DICK'S Sporting Goods How to Buy Soccer Cleats for more information. 

Shin Guards

Shin guards must be worn at all practices and games. They must be made of a high impact material and must be of proper length: from just under knee to just above the ankle. All issued socks must entirely cover the shin guards. Check our DICK'S Sporting Goods How to Choose Soccer Shin Guards for more information. 

Soccer Ball

Each player is highly encouraged to practice with a ball, and it is recommended that it be a “real” soccer ball. The proper size is important for learning good ball control and are as follows:

  • Playground, 6U, 8U:  Size 3
  • 10U, 12U:   Size 4
  • 14U, 18U: Size 5

It is strongly recommended that the player’s name and phone number be put on their ball for identification, as many balls look the same. Please bring your child’s soccer ball - properly inflated - to every practice.

What NOT to Wear

Players SHALL NOT WEAR anything that is dangerous to another player or themselves. All casts and splints (without exception) are prohibited in all AYSO practices and games. Padded knee braces are acceptable.

NO JEWELRY IS ALLOWED. This includes rings, watches, chains, necklaces, earrings, starter earrings, hard ponytail holders, bobby-pins, and barrettes as these items may cause injury during play.
