Football is very important in our society. As a sport it comes with different health benefits including; being fit, improving strength, speed, cardiovascular endurance and agility which is very important for the players. Furthermore, it teaches players life lessons, teamwork, discipline, endurance and time management.
Here are five basic things you need to always carry to your football session
1. Soccer boots. Boots are a must-have. Get a pair of shoes adapted to your level of play. If you are a beginner, opt for beginner shoes because the cushioning is better and the stud pattern also allows you to get away with small mistakes. Don’t forget to consider the type of surface you are going to play on.
2. Shin guard. Protect your shin! A shin pad is equally important due to its high level of protection. It protects the soft tissues and bones in the lower extremities from external impact by providing shock absorption and energy dissipation.
3. .Football socks. Getting the right pair of socks helps you do away with slipping within your boots, blisters as well as losing pitch grip because you don’t feel that you have a firm stance. Use them so you don’t lose stability and waste a lot of energy.
4.Lightweight outfit. You will need a lightweight outfit that will not restrict your movement and allows you to concentrate on the game. The whole idea is to avoid having to put your jersey in the right place every two seconds. You also need to carry a short, the short should be preferably lightweight too so that you get the freedom of movement. Decathlon takes pride in making breathable, quick-drying, and lightweight football tops and bottoms.
5. Sports bag. A sports bag is essential in order to carry your sports equipment and attires. You can choose a backpack for regular use, a wheeled bag if you are looking for a bag that’s easy to transport, and a traditional bag for more storage due to different compartments. Our designers have developed a full range of bags to make it easy to transport and store your essential items.
