Helmet Care

See attachments below

Guardian Football Helmet Covers

Some parents have asked us about wearing a helmet cover during practice to reduce the chance of concussions.  We have done some research and believe that these covers do not add much to the safety of our players because we are already using top of the line helmets that have an air cushion and an excellent fitting technology.  The covers will add some weight to the helmet and therefore could cause neck strain.

If you do decide to purchase one for your player, please purchase a back one.

Game Socks

For games we want either knee high socks or leggings.  Navy blue, of course.

Practice Jerseys

Buy a white practice jersey.  If you already own one, it might be okay if it is not white.   We’ll see how it goes in practice.  We need to be able to distinguish between offense and defense during practices and we do that with orange helmet covers.  Too much color will defeat the purpose.
