A duffel or sports bag: The equipment provided by the club comes in a mesh sports bag which is good for balls, cones
or other items that will get wet. But it's a good idea to have a separate bag to put your personal items in (car keys, phone,
etc.) and other gear you don't want exposed to the elements.
First aid kit: Basic first aid items are provided by the club. Inspect your kit periodically during the season and contact your
club administrator for replacements as needed. If you place all of your items in a small waterproof box, it will be easy to
see and get to among the other items in the bag, and everything will stay clean & dry. '
Plastic bags, large zip lock and kitchen garbage: The large zip locks are great for keeping forms and extra pens. Keep
your clean pennies or extra clothes dry in the large kitchen bags.
Small white board & erasable markers: A very useful item for assigning positions to players before each game, and for
Small flashlight: Great to have when someone loses their ball or car keys right before sundown
Duct tape: works great for a shin guard that keeps popping off at the top or a blown out soccer shoe
Medical Release & Field Permits: Field use permit, practice assignment grid, field locater maps, roster with parent cell
phone numbers, medical release forms for every player. Keep these in a zip lock bag for the entire season and take to
Warm weather items: A clean & sanitized spray bottle full of water. Spray onto the back of players necks when it's really
hot. For extreme heat, ice in a small cooler is great!
Cold / wet weather items: Advise players to always bring a beanie cap, fleece or hoodie for under the uniform shirt, and a
lightweight pair of wool or polyester gloves. Coats can be worn on the sideline.
Cleats / shin guards / uniform shirt & shorts: It's guaranteed that someone will show up without one of these at some
time during the season. If you have extra, pack it in plastic and bring it...just in case.
Balls & cones: The home team usually supplies the balls during the game so be sure to have a couple that are in good
shape and with a proper amount of air.
Pennies: Be sure to launder on a routine basis.
