One of the fastest growing sports in the U.S. is soccer. This spring you will see even more girls lacing up their cleats and heading for the pitch than ever before. Soccer is a great sport for girls of all ages and fitness level. It helps develop fitness, endurance, quickness, large motor skills, team work and confidence.
In today’s economy, soccer is also one of the most affordable youth sports. Most local parks and recreation departments have youth soccer leagues – many with season entry fees of less than $75. Once your athlete is registered, the list of equipment needed for soccer is pretty short – she’ll need Soccer Cleats, Shin Guards, soccer socks, shorts and a t-shirt.
