Soccer ball size corresponds to player age, but ball size for youth soccer leagues can differ by location and league standards—we recommend confirming ball size with your league or association. In general, here are the appropriate sizes for age groups: Size 5 (Adult/Professional): U12 and up (ages 12 and older), 27-28 in/68-70 cm circumference. Size 4 (Youth): U8-U12 (ages 8-12), 25-26 in/63.5-66 cm circumference.
The ball circumference is about 18 to 20 inches, which makes it pretty tiny for a soccer ball. These are primarily meant for kids to kick around and get a feel of the game. However, often adults also use this type of ball for practicing their moves, as the small size of the ball makes it somewhat difficult to maneuver.
