Notes

  • Water is not provided by the coaches or at the fields. All players should bring a water bottle to games and practices.

  • Soccer cleats must not be metal and cannot have a center "toe" cleat commonly found in baseball and football cleats.

  • Not all balls are created equal. Please do your best to provide the appropriate size ball. Larger or smaller balls create bad habbits. We suggest that each player have a stitched ball (as opposed to a hard seamless ball) of proper size.  Soccer balls come in 3 different sizes: 3, 4, & 5. The ball size is shown on the ball. Look for a stamp that says either "official size & weight" or "FIFA Approved". Even if a ball is the official weight, some balls are heavier & harder than others. Don't get a ball that is too heavy or hard (some seamless balls are especially hard). Some balls are so hard that it is painful to kick them. If you have a choice, a shiny, waterproof surface is best because it won't absorb water & will last longer. Test the ball to see if it's round & will fly straight by tossing it into the air with a lot of spin on it to see if it wobbles.

  • We live in New England and the weather can be harsh. Consider appropriate clothing for players to wear under uniforms for games and practices. Options include: cold weather base layers, sweatpants, sweatshirts, hats, gloves, neck warmers, and insulated headbands.
