Maintaining Soccer Equipment

Maintaining Soccer Equipment

Many pieces of soccer equipment last across multiple seasons with proper care. While your child may outgrow her soccer cleats quickly and may need to eventually size up on her shin guards, you can certainly get a good amount of use out of the equipment.

Use these tips to take care of the equipment for lasting use:

  • Keep them clean: Wipe down the soccer ball and shin guards regularly. Clean dirt and mud off of her cleats after each practice and game. This keeps the equipment looking nice and lasting longer.
  • Use proper inflation: Properly inflating your child’s soccer ball extends its life. Too much or too little air affects how the ball reacts and can cause damage. The general recommendation is inflation to 9 to 10.5 pounds of air, but check the listing near the valve of the ball for an exact amount.
  • Store equipment inside: It’s tempting to leave your child’s soccer gear in the car for easy access, but extreme temperatures weaken equipment, particularly soccer balls. Pack all of her soccer gear in a bag that you can easily carry to and from the car for practices and games.
  • Avoid excess weight: Weight pressing down on a soccer ball can distort its shape. Remind your child not to sit on her soccer ball and keep heavy objects off of it. Weight can damage other equipment, such as shin guards. Store the equipment in a safe place where nothing heavy can damage it.
