  1. Most of you know the difference between indoor soccer and outdoor soccer.  If not, that’s totally ok.  Throughout this article I will tell you some things you need to know about indoor soccer.  A major key thing is indoor corner flags.  There are some differences in outdoor and indoor corner flags.

    Soccer is Soccer.  Generally you have the same rules for indoor and outdoor.  Differences do arise though.  For one, indoor soccer fields are made up of turf.  No grass, just artificial turf.  Also there are basically no out of bounds.  The ball can bounce off the walls and still be in.  Some similarities include the fields are both rectangular.  Both teams are still trying to kick the ball into the goal.  That never changes.

    Indoor corner flags are different from outdoor corner flags.  The biggest difference between them is that indoor corner flags have to have a base of some kind.  They can’t be stabbed into the ground because there is already a floor there.  Generally indoor flags will contain a hollow base.  This makes the flag stable.  The flags also tend to be five feet tall.  You can purchase these really anywhere.  An important thing in purchasing corner flags is to always remember that they must have a base of some kind.  A good thing about purchasing indoor flags is you can use them for outdoor too. 

    An important aspect of indoor soccer is having the right equipment to make the game successful.  Purchasing the right indoor corner flags will make the game a lot smoother and successful to play in.

  2. The key piece of equipment you need in soccer, is a soccer goal.  The other important piece of equipment is a soccer net.  A soccer net is what stops the ball when you shoot the ball in the goal.  Now there are many different types of soccer nets.  Throughout this article I will tell you the importance of having different types of soccer nets.  Trust me, it does matter.

    When you’re choosing a soccer net to buy, it’s always important to remember who is going to use it.  Age is a very important aspect to think about when you are going to buy a soccer net.  Why I say that is because little kids hardly even touch the net when they shoot.  Older kids, teens, young adults, and adults tend to have a lot more power in their shots. 

    Soccer nets are usually made from polyethylene.  Polyethylene is a material that is a type of nylon cord.  These nets come in different sizes, heights, widths, depths, thickness, and mesh sizes.  The thickness of the net plays a key role.  Usually if the soccer players are ten years old or older, you should use a thicker net.  I would suggest using a 3mm size.  The nets come even thicker too.  Just depends on how powerful their shots can be.  The thinner the net, the easier the ball can go through it.  So always make sure to choose a thick soccer net.  A general rule of thumb is the thicker the net, the better.

    The mesh sizes are also very important.  Mesh sizes are the squares in the nets.  They come in all different sizes.  I recommend the smallest mesh size.  The reason is because the smaller the mesh size, the longer the net will last and the harder it is for the ball to sneak through if the mesh loosens and creates larger squares or holes.

    Remember, the key things to look for in a good net are the mesh size and the thickness of the net.  If you want to spend you’re money wisely then I would suggest buying a thick net, and also a small mesh size.  I can guarantee you they will last the longest. 

  3. For all you soccer players, spring soccer season is just months away.  Right now you should be doing some serious soccer training.  Some of you may have already started doing soccer training, but are wondering about what type of soccer training equipment to use.  I will tell you some of my favorite soccer training equipment, and why I love it so much.

    For me dribbling is the best thing you can work on to improve your soccer skills.  The soccer equipment I use to improve my dribbling is simply soccer cones.  Now there are all types of cones.  There are carrier, disc, flat marker, multi packs, and practice cones.  For me I like the practice cones the best.  They are taller cones; therefore you have to go around the cone.  They are also the cheapest in price. 

    Another favorite soccer training equipment of mine is the rebounder.  The rebounder is used as a goal, but after you kick the ball, the ball rebounds towards you.  It can be used for simply practicing your shots or practicing being a goalie.  Personally I like it because you don’t have to have a goalie.  You can play by yourself without having to get the ball every time you shoot.  Also you can throw the ball against the rebounder, and then you can practice your stalls and volleys.

    The most basic soccer training equipment you need is a soccer ball.  You can basically do anything with a soccer ball.  You can practice your dribbling, shooting, juggling, and much more.  Having the right soccer training equipment can really help you to become better.  If you want to become a better soccer player, then just simply practice.  You can use any soccer training equipment you want, but you must simply practice.  For me when I’m watching T.V. I sometimes will stand there and practice juggling the ball.  So whenever you have a chance, do anything to practice.   

  4. If you want to be a good soccer player, then you need to practice.  Soccer cones are perfect for making your soccer skills great.  There are all kinds of soccer cones and training cones.  Training cones are the same things as soccer cones.  The only real difference is that you may use them in varying situations. 

    Your basic soccer cones are orange practice cones.  I like these cones because they are tall and easy to see.  For me, orange practice cones improved my dribbling skills the most.  The tallness of the cone forced me to go around the cone, instead of trying to go over the cone.   They are also good cones to mark off boundaries for small scrimmages.

    Disc soccer cones are also very good cones.  These cones are great for dribbling, drills, and making boundaries for a scrimmage.  My favorite use of disc cones is for drills.  For me, they are the easiest to set up and take down.  Also they are nice and easy for drills.  If you use the orange practice cones for drills, they tend to fall over.  With disc cones, they never fall over.  You can use the disc cones for any basic drill.

    A great accessory is a disc cone carrier.  Usually, disc cone carriers will hold up to over 150 cones.  This is great because it organizes the cones.  It’s so easy to stick in your car, and it won’t make a mess.  The disc cone carrier will be a great help to organizing all the cones.

  5. Spring soccer season is just around the corner.  Many of you are wondering about which soccer goals are the best.  There are many different kinds of soccer goals and portable goals.  I will tell you some of my favorite soccer goals and portable goals.

    There are a lot of different soccer goals.  There are full size goals, junior size goals, coerver goals, infinity goals, and many more.  Full size, junior, and coerver goals are really good goals for a whole team to practice. They are bigger goals; therefore your whole team can practice shooting at once.  If you’re looking for a soccer goal to practice by yourself, then I would suggest the infinity goals.  Infinity goals come in different shapes, but they are the easiest to haul around.  It also helps you to practice controlling your shots because they are smaller goals.  Also futsal goals are really good soccer goals to practice your shots in.  They are also smaller soccer goals.

    The infinity and futsal soccer goals are also known as portable goals.  Portable soccer goals are goals that you can haul around.  Portable goals are the best if you’re coaching.  That way you can move them around wherever, and they also help you to control your shots.  Portable goals are usually pretty small.  For me I would use these goals to practice my shots.  That way when I played in a game, I knew how to shoot for a specific spot in the full size goal.  Any soccer goal is a good goal, but always take the time to practice.

  6. There are many conflicts in soccer.  The rules of soccer rely on the soccer equipment on the field.  Soccer corner flags are very important in soccer.  Corner flags make the soccer game more fair for everyone. 


    Soccer corner flags go on the corners of the soccer field.  One reason corner flags are used in the game of soccer is for corner kicks. When we make corner kicks, we need to stay in a certain small area at the corner of the field.  The corner flag is there to make sure we stay in that area. Additionally, each corner flag is used to help mark the out of bounds area. It is easy for the referees and for us to tell where the boundaries are when we cannot see the ground where the paint may be marking.


    All corner flags are basically the same.  The real difference between corner flags is the weight.  There are two basic types of corner flags: natural surface and artificial surface.  Natural surface flags are heavier than artificial surface flags.  Both types have a base or shaft that is usually made of plastic. The natural surface flag goes into the ground and is used for outdoor soccer.  The artificial flag can be used for both indoor and outdoor soccer fields.  This is because of the dome shaped plastic base around the bottom.


    Personally if I were playing outdoor soccer, I would choose the natural surface flag.  When you’re playing outdoors, you get all kinds of weather from rain to snow to hurricane type winds. I know I could rely on the natural surface flag because it is heavier and it is partially in the ground.  That way when it gets really windy, you won’t have the corner flag blowing over all the place.


    I also really like portable corner flags. It saves a lot of room in the car when you’re traveling to and from practices and/or games.  Also, these portable flags are easier to store in your garage, shed, or equipment closet in the house. Simply fold them up, put them in the bag, put them on the shelf or hang them from a hook. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with portable corner flags.
