How to clean soccer cleats.

How do you clean those stinky, smelly soccer cleats? In a nutshell:

  • Put some hot water in a container or a sink, and then add a reasonable amount of mild detergent. Dish soap is a good detergent to use for this process.
  • Dip your soccer cleats into the solution and let them soak for about 10 minutes.
  • Scrub gently over every part of the cleats using a soft-bristled brush after the scrubbing, rinse the soap off.
  • By rolling everything up in a dry towel, squeeze out moisture from the outside of the cleats. Insert the towel inside the cleats to absorb moisture.
  • Let the cleats dry by placing them in a well-aerated area, preferably indoors. The best drying method is air drying your cleats indoors. Before you store them, make sure that the soccer cleats are completely dry. Store them in a breathable bag.

Code Four gear stars in Disney’s TV show JESSIE.

If you’ve got kids, or you’re just a kid at heart, chances are you’ve had the Disney Channel on in your house once or twice. You might have stumbled upon a recent episode of the TV show “Jessie,” in which the main character gets caught up in a playground game of Quidditch with a teacher played by SNL alum Cheri Oteri.
Where did the production team turn for Quidditch uniforms? Code Four Athletics, of course. Check out these great pix, starring our purple/white Imperial jerseys, shorts and socks. It’s a bit Quiddiculous, but it’s all in good fun!

Sure, he’s (she’s?) lost a step or two, but that’s to be expected when you’re just a shell of your former self.


Is playing soccer on turf bad for your health?

Artificial soccer turfIt seems more and more matches and practices are being held on new artificial-turf fields these days. While offering the advantage of being nearly maintenance-free, do these fields pose a health risk from the recycled rubber infill material (affectionately called “turf turds” in our house)?

To help answer this question, we turn to this article from the Science of Soccer Online.
