Are you the parent of a child or teenager who will be playing youth soccer? If so, you might be dreading the costs associated with the sport a bit. In addition to fees for younger youth soccer associations, you will likely to need to buy cleats, shorts, and shin guards for your child. You might even need to purchase a practice soccer ball. While individually these costs are not huge, they do add up overtime. If you are on a strict budget, here are some money saving tips that can help your child get the soccer supplies and equipment they need.
Coupons and Store Sales: My daughter plays youth soccer and is in the first grade. Her soccer coach provided us a link to a printable coupon for Dick’s Sporting Goods. See if your local soccer organization can gain you access to these types of coupons. If not, it is within your best interest to check local store ads for money saving deals. Typically sales happen a month or two before that sport season starts. For that reason, the end of summer tends to present the best deals for soccer.
Craigslist and Other Classified Websites: The thing about youth sports is that you are dealing with growing children. For example, some children will only use their cleats or shin guards for one season only! After paying up to $ 50 for a pair of cleats, you are unlikely to find a parent who is going to just toss them in the trash. Some parents will attempt to recoup some of their money by listing soccer supplies and equipment on Craigslist. Moreover, some parents don’t want to deal with the hassle of a deal seeking haggler; therefore, they opt to list them for free!
Exchanges: Many youth soccer associations understand that parents are deeply effected by the economy. That is why a growing number of groups have started equipment exchanges. This is most common with soccer cleats and shin guards. When a child outgrows their cleats and shin guards, they are then passed on to the coach. Those items are then up for grab for parents on a budget (free of charge). If your soccer group does not currently have this type of exchange, consider asking your leader to organize one.
So there you have it! You now have a few great ideas on how you can get cheap youth soccer supplies and cheap youth soccer equipment pieces.
