Use Lexan. It s a polycarbonate material (clear plastic) that it unbreakable.
1/8” would be strong enough or 1/4” just to be a little stiffer.
I wouldn t bother with 3/8 plexiglass.

Lexan is not unbreakable. I dropped a Nalgene bottle onto a rock from about ~25ft and it broke in half. Possibly some combination of prolonged UV exposure, moisture, and heat?

Certainly it’ll be a match for a soccer ball, but I’m not sure how it’ll hold up over time.
