So last week we gave you some tips on keeping yourself warm, now its time for the kids! For your child to play their best game, they need to stay warm, keep their muscles loose and reducing the possibility of injury. The key to keeping warm is dressing for the cold weather.
Wear a pair of compression pants or compression shorts and a compression shirt under your shorts and jersey. Compression clothing hugs your body, keeping it warm while wicking sweat away from your skin. According to the “Laws of the Game,” undergarments worn under your jersey must match the color of your jersey and those worn under your shorts must match the color of your shorts. Although we don’t think this law is so strict on kids football!
You can pick up compression tops & pants for around £10 each.

Wear your jersey and shorts over your compression clothing.
Wear gloves and a knit hat to keep your extremities warm.
Heres a good one! Bring an extra set of soccer socks to keep on the sidelines. Change your child into these socks during halftime if your feet have become wet.
Wear track pants and a jacket while on the sidelines. If you are sitting on the bench, wear a blanket to keep yourself extra warm.
