It doesn’t matter if you are a coach for a youth football team, or a proud parent looking to provide the best possible football equipment for their child. There are so many options these days. Making the right decision requires you to know what is best for your child and your players.
To help you get started, we’ve created a short football kit buying guide. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for a strip, a training kit, or a rain jacket; it is important to understand your options.
What to look for in a football kit
You can get great deals on adult football teamwear, especially if you buy in bulk. For example, if you are a coach or club administrator, it is a good idea to buy the entire kit at the start of the season. This will require a large initial investment, but it is a much cheaper way to do things long-term.
You can purchase everything you need for your team at a very affordable price. A full kit package can include the following for up 16 players:
There are many colors to choose from so it should not be difficult to find the right one for your team. These are the essential items your players will need for competition, except for their football boots and shinpads.
For children, the same basic kit of football kits is available. Shirt sizes are available in XSY, LY and 24-inch to 32 inch chests. There are shorts available in a range of waist sizes, from 20 to 28 inches. Sock sizes are available in a range of sizes, from 9-year-olds to six-year-olds.
The Right Fit
When choosing shirt or short sizes, it’s best to go larger. These sizes can be obtained by simply asking your friends, but it is worth increasing a size to allow for errors. It is better to have shirts and shorts that are a bit looser than those that are too tight.
If your body measurements fall between two sizes you can move one size down for a snug fit and one size up for a looser fit. The size you choose will depend on your personal preferences.
Optional Small-Sided Products
There are options available for small-sided teams, so don’t be afraid if you run a five-aside team. Mitre offers a great package that includes four outfield football team kits as well as a goalkeeper kit at an affordable price.
You can also choose how many you would like and get a bulk discount. You can select how many additional kits are needed in addition to the five already included. You can also choose the name, number and colour of each shirt.
Warm-Up and Training kits
Your football strips should be kept clean for matches. Because they are lightweight, flexible, and affordable, warm-up shorts work well for match preparation and training.
Training shirts can be purchased in bulk or individually in a variety of colors. You can even add numbers or names to your training shirts. For example, the Mitre ProFlow tops are made of high-performance fabric that keeps players cool. They not only provide practical benefits but they also look great. They are also very affordable at less than a tenner each.
A torrential downpour can ruin a warm-up or training session. It’s always a good idea keep a stash of rain jackets on hand. Mitre’s ProShield options offer excellent value. They are water-resistant, lightweight, and flexible. The jackets can be personalized with player numbers and initials, just like professional clubs.
These days, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on high-quality, durable football kits. There are great deals available if you’re willing to buy in bulk.
