Choosing the right soccer gear

Even at the amateur level, the quality of the soccer gear used during games and tournaments can have an impact on the performance of the players. Players with uncomfortable gear will not be able to perform at their maximum which can affect the outcome of the game. Here is a quick rundown of the various types of equipment:

Soccer apparel

Soccer clothes are just as important as any other bit of equipment. The better shorts and jerseys are made with wicking fabric which keeps the players cool and fresh all through the game.

Soccer cleats

These are probably the most important since this is the driving force of the game. There are many different types to choose from, but the most important part of this is the fit. The second most important is to choose the type of shoes that suit the surface of play.

Soccer socks

Unlike shirts and jerseys, only use thinner socks during extremely warm weather. Regular socks will do for other types of weather. Since they are more affordable, it is recommended to have several types available.

Shin guards

These all have the same purpose and that is to protect the shin from injury when there is an impact. The quality and levels of protection are all roughly the same. However, the premium models will provide more comfort for the same level of protection.
