The best way to have a good practice and show the kids you are prepared is to have all of your soccer gear organized and ready to go. The last thing you want is a disorganized team and unconfident players.
Here is some equipment no youth soccer team should be without:
First aid and coaches accessories - Make sure you have a full first aid kit, safety first! Also a good whistle and clipboard won't hurt!
Balls and pumps - Look for the size of ball that is recommended for your age group. The last thing you want are soccer balls that are too big or small, or too flat! A small hand pump should do the trick.
Corner flags, cones, and paint - These are a must have to prepare a great soccer field.
Bags - You'll need these to store for everything from soccer balls to jerseys.
Scrimmage vests - Although these may not be mandatory for younger players, no serious team should be without some of these. They'll help your players distinguish each other when you have your team scrimmaging itself.
Jerseys - These are a must have! If your league or team is on a budget, discontinued or used soccer jerseys are always an option.
Goals - Besides the game goals, you should have a good compact soccer goal set, or you can even make your own soccer goals. Small compact goals are the best for scrimmages and improving accuracy.
Those few items are the basic necessities of any successful soccer program. Be sure to look around for soccer equipment at a discount or your team may have to do more fundraisers!
