Soccer Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment do I need?
Shinguards are required for all practices and games. Cleated shoes are needed if play will be on wet, muddy or soft surfaces. For very young players, sneakers will do fine.
What does my child need to bring to practice?
A ball, soccer shoes, shinguards and plenty of water.
Are mouth guards needed?
Injuries to the teeth are so few that insurers do not require them. Many dentists however recommend them.
Can I wear a cast (or earings, religious medals, eyeglasses)?
The FIFA Laws of the Game prohibit anything which is dangerous to a player or other players. Referees determine if an item can be worn without being dangerous.
