Information for Parents New to Rec Soccer


  • The registration fee for 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U includes a jersey, shorts and matching socks.

  • 10U, 12U and 14U teams will play home and away games against other New Pal teams and also against local rec teams in the Hancock County area (Greenfield and/or McCordsville).  All "away" fields are within 20 mins of New Palestine.

  • Everyone needs a Soccer Ball (required separate purchase for ALL PLAYERS):  You can get these at  Dick's.

    • 4U, 6U, 8U Players  - Size 3 Soccer Ball

    • 10U, 12U Players - Size 4 Soccer Ball

    • 14U Players - Size 5 Soccer Ball

  • Everyone needs Shin Guards (required separate purchase for ALL PLAYERS):  You can get these at  Dick's.  This is the most important part of the uniform: no shin guards means no play.

  • Everyone needs Shoes (required separate purchase for ALL PLAYERS):  You need some sort of shoe that you can run around on a muddy field.  Most of the  older kids have cleats, but they are not required.   If you do use a cleat, make sure it is a soccer cleat.  Baseball and football cleats have a cleat at the toe that is not allowed in soccer.

  • ​Reversible Jersey (required separate purchase for 4U): Red on one side, White/Grey on the other.  Available new at the concession stand for $20.

  • Socks (required separate purchase for 4U):  Available new at the concession stand for $5.   You can also get these at  Dick's.  Generally soccer socks are pretty long and cover the shin guards.  If they are really long and your tyke is short, pull them up, strap on shin guards, then pull them down over the top of the shin guards.  Red or black are the official color, but if you are really cool you might have rainbow colors or tiger stripes. Whatever you can find is good, as long as they cover the shin guard.   (For little kids you can get a sock with a 'pocket' inside where you slip in the shin guard: good for little kids who don't like things stropped on their legs).

  • Warm Gear: if it is cold, wear layers.  Just make sure that your uniform jersey (red or white) is the outer layer so we can see what team you are on.  Hoods must be tucked inside the jersey.

  • ​Jewelry:  not allowed.  No necklaces, no earring, no bracelets, no rings.  If your child has starter studs that cannot be removed yet, cover them with a small band-aid.  You'd be surprised how often a flying finger catches an earring! Medical alert wear is allowed if properly covered and protected (sweatband etc).
