Leader players are players whose active abilities are used to grant buffs and debuffs rather than move the ball or attack; some leaders buff themselves, others can buff their line or even the entire team, while others can afflict the enemy with various debuffs. Leaders also often have passive abilities that provide buffs to their own teammates or debuffs to their enemies. Leaders generally have balanced offensive and defensive stats.

Due to their predisposition toward providing passive buffs and debuffs by simply being on the field, experienced players of Soccer Spirits have taken to calling leader players with passive abilities that buff their teammates "totems," likely a reference to the shaman abilities found in World of Warcraft.
