What other equipment do I need?

Players must wear shin guards at practice and during games (includes ALL age groups). Those not wearing shin guards will NOT be allowed to participate as this is a safety issue. It is also strongly encouraged to bring a soccer ball, water bottle and to wear cleats.  These can be purchased at Dick’s Sporting Goods or SoccerPost.
