Avoiding and Preventing Heat Related Injuries When Playing Soccer

Proper Hydration to AVOID AND PREVENT HEAT RELATED INJURIES WHEN PLAYING SOCCER

There are some simple guidelines which have been prepared when it comes to running activities in a hot and/or humid environment. The goal in participating in hot weather is to avoid fluid loss from the body or dehydration. Water not only accounts for some 98% of our body composition, but functions to help deliver oxygen to working muscles, and keeps the body from overheating during strenuous activity. Hard working muscles generate heat which is dissipated through the act of sweating.

Litter Reminder

Hello Players and Parents,

Just a reminder,  please do not litter on the fields.  Recycle your water bottles and throw out your garbage.  We would like to maintain a clean facility.  The City of Toronto has provided extra garbage and recycling bins. Please use them. If you feel they are still too few bins, let a Toronto Azzurri Staff member know and we will try to accommodate the request.  If we all pitch in, it makes a difference and it will be enjoyable for all.

Thank you.

Safety Reminder – Parking Lot Speeds

Hello Parents and Players,

Please take care in the parking lots and remember to drive slowly as players are excited about their games and are not paying close attention to the cars and the traffic in the lots.

Let’s ensure the safety of the Azzurri Players and slow it down.

Thank you.

Youth Soccer Equipment

The required equipment for playing soccer is specified in the Laws of the Game which is created by the association of football. When you sign up with the Toronto Azzurri soccer organization, your registration will include a regulation soccer ball, a soccer jersey, soccer shorts and socks.  To play soccer you only need to have approved shin guards and a pair of soccer shoes. Soccer equipment is generally cheap, which makes it affordable for anyone to buy.

Eyeglasses

EyeGlasses are allowed if they are sports spectacles and are safe for the players themselves and for other players. Referees should show tolerance when authorizing their use, particularly for younger players. Materials such as metal or glass are not acceptable. In recreational and house league games referees are expected to show common sense and allow spectacles as long as the basic principals of Law 4 are met.

Youth Soccer Shoes and Cleats

Soccer shoes are especially designed for the sport of soccer and are refered to as cleats. Some have cleats and some are made for indoor soccer. Click here for more information on Youth Soccer Shoes & Cleats

 

 

Youth Shin Guard
All soccer players, from utter novices to total experts, have to wear shin guards. It only makes sense in a sport whose primary method of locomoting the ball involves kicking it out from under your opponent’s (also kicking) leg! We’ve all banged a shin into a table at some point, and have hopped around in amazement that such an innocuous accident can be so painful. Click here for more information on Youth Soccer Shin Pads
