The story behind this ball

It's important that young soccer players use a ball that's the right size, no matter their age, which is why our design teams have developed the First Kick. Size 3 for < 9 year olds. Size 4 between 9 and 12 years. Size 5 for over 12 year olds. In addition, we have conducted numerous lab and field tests to guarantee the ball's ability to withstand every hit.

Too light? too heavy? the weight is standardized...

Ball weight: Between 14.5 oz and 15.9 oz (size 5). Between 12.3 oz and 13.8 oz (size 4). Between 10.2 oz and 11.8 oz (size 3).

How big is it? what's the circumference?

Ball circumference: Between 26.8" and 27.6" (size 5). Between 25" and 26" (size 4). Between 22.8" and 23.6" (size 3).

A "round" ball?

Average measured variation: maximum of 2%. We measure the soccer's sphericity at 4,500 different points and then examine any differences. If the discrepancy is greater than 2% (FIFA Pro Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to ensure a consistent bounce.

Maximum pressure loss test: here's what we do...

We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar). 72 hours later, the ball must not lose more than 15% of its pressure, meaning approx. 0.1 bar. The pressure after 72 hours must, therefore, be at approx. 0.7 bar. This also means that it is quite normal for a ball to lose pressure after a few days.

We've also tested how much water the ball absorbs...

We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab, leaving the ball to sit in 0.8" of water on a pivoting support while subjecting it to 250 compressions. By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 15% of its weight, or approx. 2.3 oz for the First Kick in size 5.

It's all about the bounce

Between 49.2" and 61" (size 5) with a maximum difference of 3.9" between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times on a steel plate from a height of 6'6". Between 45.3" and 61" for size 3 and size 4 balls.

Not even a scratch!

The most demanding test that this ball is subjected to is the machine shot test. The ball must withstand 2,500 shots against an inclined concrete surface at 30 mph from a distance of 8'2". At the end of the test, we check: - the ball's general state: the stitching must withstand this test. - the circumference: it must not have increased by more than 0.6". - the sphericity: it must not have varied by more than 2%. - the pressure: loss of pressure must not exceed 15%.

How about you? what do you think?
