It's All About the Details
It's the details that make the difference in your game. Check out a few of these soccer accessories for your season:
- Pack up for game day with a soccer bag. These sport-specific bags and backpacks are designed to carry your shin guards, cleats and even a soccer ball. Many come with small compartments for stashing away small essentials, so you can stay organized all season long.
- The right pair of soccer socks is critical to your game. Look for socks with a lightweight build to help improve ball touch and feel on the pitch. Breathable fabrics keep you comfortable through the final second on the clock. Targeted cushioning adds an extra layer of shock absorption.
- Headbands and wristbands help wick away sweat to keep you focused on play. Accessorize with your favorite hue or your team colors.
- Fortify yourself with compression apparel and slider shorts. Some even come with lightweight padding as an extra layer of protection.
Hydration is key on the pitch, so pick up water bottles, bottle racks and coolers for the sidelines. Many water bottles come with locking lids to prevent spills. BPA-free plastic offers peace of mind, while an ergonomic design is easy to carry to and from the game. Choose from a variety of styles and colors. Water coolers are great for keeping the whole team replenished in between plays.
