Whether you’re looking for footballs for toddlers or mini footballs to help develop skills in players of any age, Mitre’s size 1 footballs could be just what you’re after. Our size 1 footballs are designed with infants in mind, being the optimal size and weight to introduce the youngest of players to the game in the right way. Very young footballers (0-3 years) will often find that larger junior footballs or full-size footballs are too heavy for them to control or coordinate, whereas size 1 mini footballs are ideal for those first years and can help players start on their journey of learning skills that will stand them in good stead as they grow.
Mitre size 1 footballs are designed to be durable enough to withstand regular use, indoors and out, with a high air retention bladder, meaning they don’t require inflating regularly. Available in a number of different designs and models, young footballers can play with mini versions of the balls used by their heroes in the EFL and SPFL, or choose one of the other high-quality junior footballs we offer.
For the best of both worlds, the exclusive Mitre Star Wars Scriballs also come in size 1, so not only do you get a great quality football, but the young player can also have a great time colouring in their favourite Star Wars character too.
Whilst Mitre size 1 footballs are the perfect ‘first football’ for infants, they are also used by players of all ages who want to improve their close control, dribbling and touch, as the smaller and lighter ball is a great piece of equipment when learning and developing in these key areas.
