EQUIPMENT NEEDS FOR TACKLE FOOTBALL

Items needed for tackle football:

Chin Strap (a good one to avoid rubbing and rashes)  NO METAL
Mouthpiece (must hook to the helmet)
Practice padded football pants-any color  
Practice jersey-any kind and color
Cleats--NO METAL
Cup (optional)
*You can get these things locally at Gables Sporting Goods or Academy Sports.

Remember that we practice Mon/Tues/Thurs 6:30-8:30 pm, so you might want to buy extra practice clothes, or you are washing every night.  Athletes should not wear the same practice clothes over and over without washing as they get extremely sweaty and can cause rashes, ringworm, foot fungus, staph infection, or other unpleasant things.  There are several good athletic equipment sprays out there that you can buy to spray down the helmet and shoulder pads after each use to also help avoid these issues.  Body odor is also a concern, especially with the older athletes.  Therefore, please encourage your child to use a good deodorant each day.  Athletes should shower well after each practice and game to avoid the above mentioned issues.

If you have questions, please email Jamie Moore at [email protected].
