HELP!!! I’m a NEW soccer MOM or DAD
Breathe… Everything is going to be fine. SISAY and its member districts are here to help your kids have fun and learn to love the game of soccer. It’s okay if you don’t get it: we’ll help teach you too!
Are you one of those parents that has to plan out everything? Are you concerned that you aren’t going to know enough about what is about to happen in the world of Soccer? We’ve got you covered.
I need what? How much $ is this going to cost me?
What do you need to know on day one? SISAY’s goal is to offer the best possible programs at an affordable price. We keep our expenses down, so we can keep the cost of registration as low as possible for you and your family.
Even with offering everything we can at each participating district, there will be a few things that will be a must have for your player(s).
The Appropriate Sized Ball
Wait? What does that mean?
Different ages use a different size soccer ball because little ones, have smaller feet (in most cases)
Size 3 - U8 and below (Passers, Lollipops, and younger)
Size 4 - U10 to U12 (Wings & Strikers)
Size 5 - Above U12 (Kickers)
As your player gets older, and the more they play, they will want a nicer, more expensive ball. In most cases, you get what you pay for when it comes to soccer ball quality.
A Decent Sized Water Bottle
1 20oz Bottle of water isn’t going to cut it- players need to be well hydrated to play the game.
They come in different sizes: But these are pretty easy to figure out. They should hit between the knee and ankle.
Our Partners at Dick’s Sporting Goods usually offer a great package with Shin Guards, a Ball, and Cleats for around $40 or so each fall for those just starting out.
Also, keep an eye out for coupons and promotions before the season starts as well.
