Should this be tolerated?â€Answer: Players should always wear shinguards. They must be worn during training sessions because play can get more rambunctious at practices, when kids may be less tentative. And you want players to be accustomed to shinguards because they WILL be wearing them in the games.Its a great thing about soccer that the sport doesnt require expensive gear, but its a wise rule that requires players to wear shinguards to protect a vulnerable bone.Those children who feel uncomfortable in shinguards should be encouraged to try out different sizes and kinds of shinguards to discover a good fit. The shinguards should, of course, be properly worn under the socks, to provide maximum protection.
