I'm buying a gift for a child (angel tree type of thing) and it says he wants a soccer ball. I went on Amazon and learned that soccer balls come in different sizes! I had no clue! What size is standard? 3? 4? 5?

It depends on the age of the child.


SIZE CIRCUMFERENCE (cm) AGE
Size 1 (Skills Balls) 46-51 All ages: developing footwork skills/ball control
Size 3 (Junior). 58.5-61 8 and younger
Size 4 (Youth) 63.5-66 Ages 8 –12
Size 5 (Adult). 68-70 Ages 13+

If you don't know the age, I would go with a four. Unless the child plays on league, it won't matter too much.

How old is the child? Size correlates to age.

ETA: What cabernet said better than I did.

Ah, I see! 10 years old, so size 4 sounds about right. Thank you!
