Gifts For Soccer Players

From useful training gear to keep their game on point to unique clothing, decor, and accessories, you’re bound to score a winning goal with family and friends who live and breathe the game!
Training & Skills
From solo and group training equipment to the one and only soccer ball they’ll ever need, the following gifts for soccer fans showcase a hand-picked selection of the best training gear to enhance their skills, perfect their technique, and guide them when their coach is not around.
1. Soccer Ball
One of the best and most essential soccer gifts for dedicated players is undoubtedly a brand new soccer ball. The Adidas Finale 20 Pro is a professional quality ball used by footballing greats in the UEFA Champions League. Officially approved by FIFA, the match ball ensures both games and practice sessions are played at high standards while being thoroughly enjoyed. The professional soccer ball is constructed from thermally bonded polyurethane which offers a soft feel and exceptional durability.
2. Mini Soccer Goal
Whether for training drills or outdoor games with friends and family, a set of portable pop-up soccer nets are a perfect finishing target. The miniature soccer goals are compact, sturdy, and are accompanied by a convenient carry bag for easy transport and storage. Multi-grip stakes ensure the goals are safely secured into the ground, and a fold-out construction ensures a quick setup that requires no assembly. Available in three size variations; 2.5 ft, 4ft, and 6ft, the mini-goals also feature a reflective net for games that go late into the evening.
3. Rebounding Net
While it’s commonplace to practice ball control and dribbling alone, practicing field passing and volleying tends to require a companion. The Quickster Soccer Trainer is a great solution for solo practice, maximizing passes, and developing first touch. The lower net is perfect for ground passing, rolling the ball back to players as if it had come from a teammate’s boot. The taller net is for practicing volleys and half volleys, providing a central target to help sharpen a player’s aim. The rebounding net itself is lightweight, durable, and easy to set up, neatly packing away in a portable carry bag.
4. Large Soccer Goals
While miniature goals are great for training drills and play within confined spaces, large soccer goals are a great idea for games and match simulation. Constructed with a steel frame, these portable soccer goals are roughly half the width of a regulation size goal. The frame is powder-coated to resist weather wear, while a durable net is attached using velcro stips making it easy to attach and remove.
5. Solo Trainer
A great gift for soccer players to practice shooting, passing, and receiving balls is a Star-Kick Solo Trainer. While a rebounding net is used for soft touch and ground balls, an adjustable solo trainer allows the player to use more power and receive balls at pace. How does it work? A glove is fitted around the ball and a belt is fitted around the player’s waist. An adjustable cord connects the belt and glove preventing the ball from flying away. The ball is pulled back at pace by the stretchy cord, requiring players to handle the ball as if it was passed to them from a distance.
6. Agility Ball
A training aid for coordination and agility, the Kwik Goal Agility Ball makes a usually anticipated bounce unpredictable. Perfect for field players and goalkeepers alike, the durable poly-foam ball challenges players’ reactions as deflections and passes move in an irregular manner.
7. Agility Ladder
A classic piece of training equipment aimed at footwork and change of direction, an agility ladder is simple, effective, and can be used just about anywhere. The ProSourceFit speed agility ladder features a convenient roll-up design made from plastic rungs, nylon straps, and is packaged in a convenient carrying case. In addition to multi-directional training, foot speed, balance, and body control, the agility ladder is a great tool for cardiovascular conditioning.
8. Team Bag
A useful soccer gift for a soccer coach, squad leader, or any player assigned the responsibility of transporting the team’s balls is a team ball bag. The Adidas Stadium bag features a large drawstring opening and sturdy polyester construction. Built to house 12-15 soccer balls, the bag comfortably rests on the player’s shoulder via a sling-style shoulder strap.
9. Soccer Book
If you’re a soccer parent who believes young players’ minds must be trained alongside their bodies, a strategic soccer book might be just what you’re after. Teaching young boys and girls how to think on the field, Soccer IQ covers principles such as smart decision making and pressure, all coming from the perspective of a seasoned soccer coach.
Shoes & Clothing

A moisture-wicking sleeve holds the shin guards in place, preventing the guards from slipping down while on the field. Strategically placed vents provide breathability, reducing heat, and minimizing sweat. Most importantly, the G-Form Pro-S Elite provides excellent shin safety, utilizing patented G-Form technology which hardens on impact, distributing pressure evenly across the pad.
14. Field Gloves
The perfect birthday or Christmas gift for a soccer player who plays in cold weather, a pair of field gloves will keep their hands warm in the winter months. The Nike HyperWarm gloves feature flexible cuffs for a secure fit and textured palm grips that improve ball grip during throw-ins.

One of the coolest wearable gifts for soccer players, the Oofos OOahh sandals are a great post-match and day-after footwear option. The OOahh Sport Slide recovery sandals reduce the impact of walking by reducing 37% of the shock that usually feet, knees, and lower back absorb.
18. Compression Socks
Perfect for soccer practice and running for cardio conditioning, a pair of compression socks help aid recovery and the run itself. Made from a polyamide and elastane blend, the CEP Progressive+ Nighttech socks provide consistent compression around the player’s calf. A tight top band prevents the socks from working their way down the leg, while the innovative knit design helps moderate temperature. The main feature is of course their compression function which increases circulation while running, preventing doms, shin splints, and overuse injuries.
For birthdays or Christmas, bundled, or a gifted solo, a new pair of soccer shorts will always be welcomed. The Puma ftblNXT graphic shorts feature a thick waistband, moisture-wicking properties, and a regular fit design for maximum comfort.
