 Practice Soccer Balls  Soccer is definitely an exciting sport. However, it is a sport that has to be played with a ball and, therefore, the need to choose the right ball is a top priority for soccer players and coaches alike. There are many types of soccer ball, but the most famous ones are usually the most expensive ones too and, therefore, not everyone can afford them. Nevertheless, the quality and characteristics of the soccer ball can influence the kicks of the players and, therefore, their overall performances. So, what is there to know about the soccer ball? 

Both the soccer ball and the sport have been invented in the 1600's. Back then, things were completely different. For instance, the soccer ball was nothing more than an inflatable bladder. Due to this fact, the soccer ball was of an oval shape, resembling more to the rugby ball than to a sphere. With regards to this, in the 19th century the English Football Association decided that the shape needs to change and that the new fabrics used must be leather or other similar and approved materials. Clear guidelines regarding size and weight have also been set. While the size of the ball does not have to be of more than 28 inches, but of more than 27 inches in diameter, the weight has to be somewhere in between 14 and 16 ounces. These rules have been reinstated in 2001, when “The Laws of the Game” have been drafted. The history of the soccer ball has been sinuous even in the 1900's. Then, the soccer ball was covered in thick, dark brown leather that made it bounce the way it should. However, the leather had the tendency of soaking up with water and, thus, weighing more. This is when the need for a white soccer ball made of fake leather has appeared. Even today, research is being done in order to make the soccer ball more accurate, lighter, softer and safer. 

Anyone who is interested in buying a soccer ball has to take into account several tips. For instance, it would be better if the buyer would choose to purchase from a shop that offers a wide range of options, due to the fact that the ideal scenario for a buyer is to be able to compare and contrast the prices, quality and features of the soccer ball. The ideal characteristic of a soccer ball is for it to be stitched, and not laminated, since the laminated soccer ball is usually harder. Also, latex inner bladders are preferred to butyl bladders, as these latter one are also harder. 

Nevertheless, a harder, and therefore, cheaper soccer ball has its advantages. For instance, they are quite incredibly helpful when it comes to practicing. In addition, the size of the soccer ball is crucial for the player. Players age 8 and less are advised to play with size 3 balls. Players age 8 to 12 should use size 4 soccer balls, while the 13 year olds and older should play with size 5 balls, which is also the standard for internationally used balls. All in all, the final choice regarding the soccer ball is yours, but internet sites, specialty magazines and sales representatives can provide a lot of help too.
