Equipment is something you will want to purchase early. It is also important not to cut corners in this department. Buy quality. It makes an impression on your players and demonstrates your dedication to a quality club experience. We’ve broken down the necessary equipment you will need below.
Girls traditionally use Molten Super Touch balls. Guys use Molten USAV FLISTATEC balls. Younger kids use Molten U12 balls. Really young kids (we are talking three to six year olds) use the Molten First Touch ball. Some clubs purchase six balls for each team that stay with the coaches. Some clubs keep balls at the facility. Check out KM Sports, Burghardts, All-Star Sportswear, EastBay, Mizuno or ask a club director in your area for vendor recommendations.
Every team should have a med kit to ensure the safety of your athletes. Be sure to have tape/pre-wrap with you as not every tournament will have a trainer available. You can purchase these at Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club or other similar locations, or create your own for each team.
