Although we believe in teaching our kids that practice makes perfect with hard work and dedication to progress in a sport, we also try to focus on safety. Stretching before practice or a game is just as important for preventing injuries as wearing your protective gear.
Noah is slowly trying to come out of his shell and build up more courage to get aggressive in soccer. The first two seasons he played he was a little nervous about stealing the ball since he knew he was likely to get kicked. He really loves the sport and wants to play well but has an inner fear that causes a struggle.
Headers have never been much of an option for Noah because he fears getting hurt from a hit in the face. I love how the Storelli Soccer head gear provides some assurance to him.
The head gear is very thick in padding but comfortable to wear. The material is smooth and slides right on. The padding holds true in place and is cushioned enough to not bother him while he plays.
Storelli Soccer offers a variety of items to give you protection while playing soccer. Noah also tested out their BodyShield LegGuard.
The front of the LegGuard has a pocket so you can easily slip your shin guards right inside. The back of the LegGuard has built-in padding for protection. Most standard shin guards do not have this added padding even though a lot of kids get kicked while playing soccer. The ankles are secure with cushion on all sides.
The bonus of these being black is they match his uniform. However, the material is slick enough that you can slid a soccer sock right over it. The BodyShield LegGuard holds into place by slipping over the foot.
