Children under 12 years of age are more suitable for the size 4 ball. Using the size 5 ball is difficult to practice your kicking and dribbling skills as it may be too big and heavy for efficient training.
Uses: a soccer ball for training and learning, game ball, futsal, indoor soccer
1. Do not sit or stand on your soccer ball. This puts too much pressure on the seams of the ball and can cause it to warp or eventually break.
2. Check the pressure frequently
3. Slightly deflate the ball after playing. Reduce pressure when the ball is not in use.
4. Please limit playing to smooth wooden floors, grass, or grass. Surfaces like gravel and asphalt can damage the ball. Soccer balls, while tough, can be easily damaged by sharp and abrasive surfaces.
WHY DO NEW SOCCER BALLS ALWAYS SEEM SMALLER THAN USED SOCCER BALLS?
Newer soccer balls seem smaller because they actually are. When a ball is kicked, the pressure causes the threads to pull against the outside material covering the ball. With repeated kicks or hits, the soccer ball will expand slightly. Depending on the quality of the ball, it's been estimated that older soccer balls can be up to 20% larger than the same ball when it was new.
