Shinguards: Always wear your shinguards at games and practice and camps under your soccer socks.
Cleats: Although cleats are not required, they do help.
For Indoor Soccer, no cleats. "Flats", or indoor shoes are not required, but again, they help. Sneakers are ok too.
Soccer ball: U6/U8 play with a size 3 ball.
U10 & U12 use size 4
U14 and up play with size 5
Water Bottle: Even if it’s not hot out, always bring water to games and practice and camps
