What you Need to Know about the Equipment that will be provided to you.

The league provides each player with $300 in equipment.  Please treat this equipment like it is your own property. 

After registering, the league will provide your child with the following equipment: 

1-set of shoulder pads;
1-pair of practice pants;
1-pair of game pants;
1-set of girdle pads (hip and butt);
1-set of thigh pads;
1-set of knee pads;
1-practice belt (assorted colors);
1-game belt (team color) and
1-game jersey.

Game Jersey / Pants
Ideally, the game jersey and game pants should be washed on a delicate cycle and air dried because they fall apart quicker with constant dryer use. The game jersey and game pants are to be worn only on game days.  Please do not ever wear the game uniforms to practice.

There are a few things, though, that need to be purchased: 

cleats (rubber spikes only),
a mouth piece, and
an athletic supporter. 
practice jersey
padding (arm, ribs, etc..)

Most teams will make the purchase of a practice jersey available, but, until that occurs, you will need to supply your own.
