After a long search, I finally found the perfect soccer bag for Teddy. It was big and roomy, with plenty of pockets to store all of his gear. He loved it!
The next game, he came onto the field carrying his new soccer bag. The other players were amazed at how much stuff he had with him. “Do you have a water bottle in there?” one of them asked. “And what about your cleats and shin guards?”
Teddy grinned and pulled out each item one by one. “I’ve got everything I need right here,” he said. His teammates were in awe – and they weren’t the only ones. It seemed everyone watching from the sidelines were impressed too.
Our search for the perfect soccer bag was finally complete. Teddy was happy and so were we. It took us a while to find the best one because a lot of the ones we tried were too small and / or cheaply made. But it was worth the effort to find just the right bag for our little soccer player.
When we started out looking for the right bag, we needed something that had plenty of storage, was easy for Teddy to carry, and was easy for us to clean. We also wanted something that would last for several seasons. We quickly learned that there are a lot of different types and brands of soccer bags on the market. With so many choices, it was hard to know where to start.
We did a lot of research and finally narrowed our search down to three bags. We’ll tell you a little about each one and why we think it’s the best choice for a youth soccer player.
The first produce on our list is a Yorepek soccer bag, the perfect backpack for all of your kid’s soccer gear. It has plenty of storage room, including dedicated compartments for cleats and their soccer ball (up to size 5). The zipper pockets on both sides are perfect for storing snacks, tape, and sunscreen, while the mesh pockets on each side can hold water bottles, umbrellas, and shin guards. Plus, the inside of the backpack has a large compartment that’s perfect for a jacket or a change of clothes. And for parents who deal with the aftermath of the soccer games, the Yorepek is also easy to clean – simply remove the inner lining and shake out the dust or wipe with a wet rag for tougher stains. We liked this bag the most because it had a great combination of storage, features, and quality.
- Dedicated compartments for cleats and balls
- Lots of storage
- Tons of ventilation to minimize stink
- Bulkier than most
- Harder to carry
The DashSport is a great bag for little soccer stars. The bag is lightweight and can be worn as a backpack or over one shoulder. It’s the perfect size for carrying gear to and from practice, with plenty of room for a water bottle, cleats, socks, shin guards, jacket, and snacks. It’s also durable enough to withstand the abuse it gets from being thrown around to and from the soccer fields. The vented side pockets are perfect for keeping your shoes and gear aired out, and the ball bag fits up to a size 5 soccer ball (see also ‘What Size Soccer Ball Is Best By Age?‘) (see also ‘What Size Soccer Ball Is Best By Age?‘). This was also a great bag, but it was a little too big for Teddy. It is definitely something he could have grown into, but we were looking for something that wouldn’t be so cumbersome for him given the size he is today (or we would have ended up being the ones to carry it anyway).
- Dedicated compartments for cleats and balls
- Less storage than other products
The Athletico Youth Soccer Bag is a good backpack for your little goal-scorer to carry all of their gear to and from practice. It has a roomy main compartment that can fit a water bottle, balls, cleats, and snacks. The vented side pockets are also perfect for keeping the stink at bay (if that’s even possible!). The padded, adjustable straps make it comfortable to wear for your little one, even when it’s loaded down with equipment. This one was a great size for Teddy, but it didn’t seem to be as durable as the other ones on the list.
So there you have it – the 3 best soccer bags for your little soccer prodigy. All of these bags are great choices, but the best one for your family will depend on your budget and what features are most important to you.
Most parents will want the bag they find to last as long as possible. If that’s what you’re looking for, then the Yorepek is the bag for you. It’s well-made and designed to last for seasons. And if you’re looking for a bag with plenty of room to store all of your child’s gear, then the DashSport is a great option. If you’re looking for a lightweight bag that your child can easily carry, then the Athletico is a good choice.
We hope this list has helped you narrow down your search and find the perfect bag for your kiddo.

Snacks to Pack for Soccer Games
It’s important to pack plenty of water for your child to stay hydrated during their soccer game. Water is especially important on hot days or if your child is playing a long game.
Fruit is a great snack to pack for kids soccer because it’s healthy and easy to eat on the go. Plus, most fruit doesn’t require any extra prep work (like peeling or slicing). Some good options to pack include apples, bananas, grapes, and oranges.
Just like fruit, vegetables are a healthy and easy snack to pack for soccer games. Some good options include carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber slices, and grape tomatoes.
4. Granola Bars
Granola bars are easy to eat on the go and are a good source of energy for kids playing soccer. Just make sure to pack enough for the entire game (and maybe even a few extras in case your child gets hungry).
5. Trail Mix
Trail mix is another good snack to pack for a soccer game because it’s easy to eat on the go and is full of energy-boosting ingredients. Just make sure to avoid any trail mix that includes chocolate, as it will melt in the heat.
