Cleats & Shin Guards
Shin guards are required at all levels, and must be worn under socks. Soccer cleats recommended, though tennis or running shoes are allowed. Baseball cleats (with a stud at the toe-tip) are not allowed. Soccer equipment may be purchased at Sports Basement in San Francisco (the Presidio or Novato), or a variety of other sporting goods stores, as well as Soccer.com.
Children are strongly encouraged to bring a large water bottle to every practice and game. Bottles should be marked with names, and children should take responsibility for remembering their own bottle, as well as all other soccer gear that might be left at the field. Children should also take responsibility for recycling all disposable water bottles, as well as other trash brought to the field.
