Look for weather-resistant materials, like high quality TPU in your soccer ball's casing to ensure it stands up to Mother Nature.
Consult your local league to find out the regulation size of soccer balls. No standard exists across all leagues. Manufacturers produce balls sized for soccer players of different ages. A size 3 ball is suitable for ages 8 and under, a size 4 ball is suitable for ages 8 to 12, and a size 5 ball is suitable for ages 13 and older, including adult players.
