Coolest Soccer Gear For Boys and Girls

Everything Your Kid Needs For Maximum Soccer #Goals

Soccer season is coming, so we've partnered with Target to celebrate the hottest new clothes and gear for kids.

The world's number one sport, soccer, is about to take over, so it's time to boot up, warm up, and get up to speed. Not only is running around a soccer field with friends fun, but it's also great exercise and a way to learn life and social skills like teamwork and self-confidence. To get your budding forwards, midfielders, strikers, or goalkeepers prepped, we turned to the soccer experts at Umbro, the heritage brand that is now available at Target. From training and game-day wear to gear and accessories, here's how to get your kid ready for kickoff.

Pregame Pieces

It's no wonder that soccer players are among our favorite athletes: they can do it all! Every game involves running up and down the field, stopping on a dime to change direction, sprinting, jumping (even just celebrating a goal), all while controlling the ball. Players need a mix of speed and agility skills, so a good warm-up is a must. Whether stretching on the sidelines, jumping rope, running sideways, "climbing the ladder," or working on cone drills, these pieces have the pregame zipped up.

Umbro's track pants and track jackets come in soft, breathable fabrics that keep kids warm and comfortable on the bench or cheering from the sidelines. Stepping out in a matching set with cute but not overly girlie accents is sure to make girls feel instantly confident, and ready tackle soccer practice and the rest of their day. Practical, durable slip-ons with a trending logo pattern are the perfect complement that kids won't want to take off.

Black track pants and a coordinating graphic t-shirt look instantly pro, so these classic Umbro designs are perfect for getting their heads in the game. They're easy to mix and match, on and off the field, and are sure to shine in team pics.

Game-Ready Gear

After all that hard work, game day is a little soccer player's time to shine. It's all about confidence, from the pep talk and taking shots at the goal to feeling comfortable and looking great. Umbro has it covered with classic, colorful pieces that will make them feel like pros. All you need to bring is water, healthy snacks, extra shin guards, and positive vibes!

Cleats are typically mandatory on the field, and for good reason: they grip the ground, making running and turning easier and reducing stress on the lower body. The oversize logo and neon accents make this functional item fashionable, especially against bold purple pieces. Umbro's iconic checkered shorts are available in a rainbow of colors, which look great solo or matched for extra impact. Switching out the ball for a neon yellow shade will add extra fun to every quarter.

Umbro's tops and shorts combine pro looks and performance with affordability, so your aspiring soccer star can take the field with confidence. Red, white, and blue colors let your little one rep the USA — because there's always next World Cup! — and dream big.
