– A ball: size 3 or 4 for U4/U5/U6; Size 4 for U7/U8
– Shin Guards – Optional for U4/U5 but required for U6/U7/U8

– Cleats are optional, sneakers and turf shoes are fine as long as they provide a sure footing. 

Return to Play Guidelines:
The State’s governing body Connecticut Junior Soccer Association has strict guidelines with regard to “Return to Play”.  All players and parents are to wear a mask to and from the field.  When advised by coaches, players can remove their masks for practice.  Coaches and parents are to keep masks on throughout practice.  At the conclusion of practice players should put masks back on until they reach their vehicle.  Any parents/coaches not wearing masks will be required to leave the field.  These rules and abiding by them is what allows us to continue playing soccer.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

For more information and a complete outline of Tolland Soccers Return to Play guidelines, please refer to our website.

Looking forward to seeing all our new and returning players in a couple weeks!
