A new lightweight ball for younger players, the JNR Lite 360 and 290 has been designed to meet new organising body rules.
Available in size 5 (JNR Lite 360) and size 4 (JNR Lite 290), the JNR Lite footballs are highly recommended for use on grass in a training environment.
20% lighter than standard size 5 and 4 footballs to inspire confidence among junior players.
The reliable 32 panel construction is manufactured to the highest and tightest specification to deliver optimum shape and size control.
To avoid damaging your Mitre football, care should be taken when inserting the inflation needle into the ball when using your Mitre pump, particularly on first inflation (remember your Mitre ball will be shipped deflated). We recommend you use Mitre Glycerine to lubricate the inflation needle, this will allow it to be inserted smoothly and carefully. Once inserted, inflate your ball to the desired pressure; there is a recommended pressure printed by the valve and the maximum pressure should not be exceeded. The amount of pressure inside the ball will significantly affect performance and could affect ball lifespan. To check ball pressure we recommend you use a Mitre Pressure Gauge, this will help set the ball pressure before use and ensure you get the most from your football. For match play, we recommend you inflate the ball to the maximum recommended pressure; for training, a pressure at the lower end of the recommended tolerance is advised.
After care – if you use your ball in wet / muddy conditions, we recommend that you clean off any excessive dirt with a damp cloth (do not clean in a bath or shower), before allowing to dry naturally in an airy place and away from the cold (use a Mitre Mesh Ball Sack to store where possible). Balls should not be force dried with heat as this may damage the ball.
