Tips for getting started playing soccer
David Beckham may have left LA Galaxy but the popularity of the sport certainly hasn’t dropped. Soccer continues to be one of the most popular sports. With spring season coming up, there is no better time to start playing soccer.
Like most sports, you don’t have to be a professional to play soccer. There are many local club teams that are quite organized for you to start. You just have to do a little research and you will find that you can either try out for a local team in small leagues, or get a bunch of friends together and form a team. Either way, before you begin you should ensure that you have the necessary gear to play.
When it comes to soccer you don’t really need much gear. One of the first things and the most important parts of soccer gear would be the cleats. Getting the right cleats is essential as it would give you an edge in terms of performance. The right cleats will also help you prevent yourself from getting injured. Getting the right pair of cleats will depend on the kind of surface you are playing on. Indoor soccer would require specialized indoor soccer shoes while field soccer would require cleats.
Among the soccer cleats for outdoor soccer, the Adidas Adizero F50 would be your best bet. The F50 features a sprintskin upper which makes it one of the lightest soccer shoes around. This also gives it a glove like finish. The Sprint Frame construction of this shoe makes it one of the most stable ones around. The F50 also features a mix of molded Traxion studs and exchangeable aluminum studs in a design optimized for rapid acceleration on soft and natural surfaces. Lastly these shoes weigh less than 7 oz which makes them one of the lightest ones around.
Once you have yourself a good pair of cleats you just need a good pair of shin guards. Once you have your shin guards all you need are a few soccer balls and you are good to go. Adidas F50 soccer balls are the official ones which almost everyone uses.
