Player Equipment

EQUIPMENT:

Players are required to wear a shirt, shorts, socks, shoes (cleats recommended), and shin guards. The registration fee for both the spring and fall programs includes a team jersey as well as team socks. Any equipment included in the registration fee will typically be distributed before opening day. Players are also required to wear shin guards, soccer cleats (no metal spikes) and wear shorts. You are also strongly encouraged to bring your own soccer ball to your training. Size 3 balls are used for all players 8 and younger. Size 4 for all players age 9 to 12. The standard size 5 balls are for ages 13 and over.

No jewelry is allowed. Earrings must be taken out. No exceptions. Taping is not acceptable. Both the referee and coach must insist that earrings be taken out, or the player does not participate. This is true for all soccer across the board (rec, travel, high school, college, NJYS, USSF, FIFA) and is written into the rules of the game. Any player who leaves earrings in, even if padded and taped, is risking injury to themselves. Hopefully, removing earrings for an hour of game time should not result in the holes closing up. Parents of children with newly pierced ears should have antiseptic available so they can clean the ear and earrings (posts, studs) before and after the game.
