What Size Football Should I Buy?

October 22, 2018

It all starts with the ball. Choosing the right size football is important to prevent injury and ensure a great playing experience. So, what size football should you buy?



Age Football Size
Ages 9 and under

Size 5

Ages 10-12

Size 6

Ages 12-14

Size 7

Ages 14 & up

Size 9

Players ages 9 and under should use a pee-wee size ball. It’s critical we give young players the right size ball. If we give them a ball that is too big for their hands or too heavy for their arms, they are more prone to injuries and won’t have the success of gripping and throwing a ball accurately. We want to make sure to create a fun environment for these beginners!

Players ages 10-12
should use a junior size 6 ball. At age 10, kids now have the developed strength, skill, and size to handle the size 6.

Players ages 12-14 should use an intermediate/youth size 7 ball. As kid’s hands get bigger and the players get more skilled, they can grip a bigger ball. A bigger ball can also help players catch longer passes more easily.

Players ages 14 and up can begin using an official size 9 football.
