If you want to hang out with people you are friends with and stay in shape in the process, one of the most fun things you can do is play indoor soccer. Two more great things about indoor soccer are the fact that it can be played year-round and the fact that it is truly an intense workout! But before you can move forward and start up an indoor soccer team, you will have to make sure you know all the basic equipment you and your team will need.You will, of course, need to make sure you start with all the regular equipment you would normally need for soccer, including shin guards, soccer shorts, and shoes for playing. As far as shoes go, you will have to find out what sort of playing surface your local indoor soccer gym has; most indoor soccer gyms have faux grass that allows you to play using cleats, but some places have artificial turf that will require you to get some special “indoor soccer shoes.” As for team gear, you will also want to make sure you have some sort of jersey or matching shirts, as you will be unable to distinguish your team from the other without these! Some indoor soccer gyms have rules that require all players on a team to wear matching shirts, but even if your local gym does not have this rule, it will be helpful for you to go this route nonetheless. Your team jerseys will not have to be actual soccer jerseys, but you should still make sure that the shirts are made of lightweight material that will be good for some serious running and sweating! Your team will also need to have at least a couple soccer balls, as games will be played with a soccer ball that comes from one team or the other. And one of the most vital things for you to keep in mind: most indoor soccer gyms require you to bring a “ref fee” each week; this is usually minimal, but make sure you have it! You will be ready to put in an indoor soccer team once you have all these things, and you will be ready to start having some serious fun!
