Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Soccer Equipment
Skyline Soccer Association encourages you to take Jack Johnson’s lyrics literally and recycle soccer equipment. The chilled, laid back artist makes a good point in his short and to the point song about reducing our footprint on this earth in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. On another song in the same album that he made for the Curious George soundtrack, The Sharing Song can also be used to encourage us to share our equipment.
Although most of us would not consider ourselves “rich”, the majority of Americans enjoy a degree of wealth never seen before. There are many children in Denver and even around the world that cannot afford cleats, soccer balls, or even socks. My boys grow out of their cleats constantly, yet these very cleats can afford easily three calendar years if shared after growing out of them.
Although a used cleat can take the shape of the player’s foot and ultimately form to his/her specific foot pattern, arch, etc. This may not make that much of a difference when the shoe is being passed on from a 6, 7 or 8 year old. The older the player, the more pronounced the molding will be on a pair of shoes. However, when the difference in being allowed to play is having a pair versus not, most will take those cleats regardless of how weathered they are.
Are your child’s cleats collecting dust in the closet or underneath the bed? We kindly ask that you bring them to our office and we can put good use to them.
