Required Athletic Equipment for Soccer
Each player will be responsible for having a pair of cleats and shin guards to wear to games AND to practices. Quality socks (game socks are not permissible at practice) are also necessary for practice to prevent blistering. Uniforms will be provided by Heritage Academy and will be collected at the end of each season.
Students who do not wear shin guards to practice will not be permitted to participate in practice for the sake of safety, and may accrue half an absence (versus one whole absence), provided that the students remains present and engaged in practice to the extent that it is possible.
