WHAT SIZE SOCCER BALL DO I NEED?

Soccer ball size corresponds to player age, but ball size for youth soccer leagues can differ by location and league standards. In general, here are the appropriate sizes for age groups:

  • Size 5 (Adult/Professional): U12 and up (ages 12 and older), 27-28 in./68-70 cm circumference
  • Size 4 (Youth): U8-U12 (ages 8-12), 25-26 in./63.5-66 cm circumference
  • Size 3 (Junior): U8 and down (ages 8 and younger), 23-24 in./58.5-61 cm circumference
  • Size 1 (Skills): All ages, best for developing footwork skills and ball control; 18-20 in./46-51 cm circumference

Please note, we recommend confirming ball size with your league or association.
