Youth Football Equipment Details

Please review the below list which describes what kind of equipment is to be used for football, as well as which equipment you are required to purchase. Part of your registration fees go towards the majority of your player's equipment however there are a few items you will have to purchase and manage. If you plan to purchase all of your player's equipment, the below information provides helpful information as well.

Game Day and Practice Uniforms

Part of your player/cheerleader's registration fees are applied to providing them with uniforms. Flag and Tackle football players are provided with practice and gameday pants - both that include sewn in protective pads, and practice and gameday jerseys. The gameday jersey will have the player's name on the back and he/she can keep it once the season is over. The practice jerseys are loaned to the players and need to be returned. 
You football player will a.so be provided with socks. A good investment for parents are compression pants that go beneath the players game/practice pants. These allow the player to avoid having to wear an athletic supporter as the cup can be inserted into the compression pants.

Cleats Required (Parents to purchase - All Players)

All players are required to purchase and wear their own cleats (Flag and Tackle). Most football cleats are designed differently defending on what position you play. Typically, high-top cleats are made for linemen who need extra ankle support for lateral movements. Mid-cut cleats combine support with maneuverability for players like running backs, quarterbacks and corner backs. Low-cut cleats are the lightest and most maneuverable shoe and are used by receivers. The most important thing to remember is ensure that your player is comfortable while wearing the cleats. 

Helmet (League Provided - Tackle FB Only)

The league will provide your player with a helmet. All league provided helmets must be properly sized and fitted by the league's equipment manager. FPW Helmets are re-certified every 2-years and maintained on a regular basis.  If you plan to purchase your player's helmet, It is very important that you pick one that fits properly. Most sporting goods stores employ people who are qualified to properly fit helmets. If you are buying a helmet online, it is strongly recommended that you have the helmet inspected by the FPW equipment manager prior to your player using it. Also be sure and choose a jaw pad and chin strap that fits comfortably. If you are interested in purchasing a Riddell helmet directly from the manufacturer, please contact the Riddell Sales Rep, Brad Ross at (760) 703-8213


Pads (League Provided - Tackle FB Only)

FPW Will provide your player with shoulder pads prior to commencement of the season. If you are buying shoulder pads, ask your coach or other store expert which types are right for your position. The league will also provide football practice and uniform pants that include sewn in hip thigh, knee and tailbone pads, If you are interested in purchasing Riddell shoulder pads directly from the manufacturer, please contact the Riddell Sales Rep, Brad Ross at (760) 703-8213.


Mouthguard (Parents to purchase - All Players)

It is MANDATORY that all players (Flag and Tackle) wear a proper fitting mouthpiece AT ALL TIMES while on the field during practice and games.  Although they are a bit uncomfortable, they are inexpensive, and they protect your player's tongue and teeth. We suggest purchasing 3-4 mouthpieces at the beginning of the season as they get lost and worn out.

  4. Place in child’s mouth positioned tightly against upper teeth.

  5. Have child to bite down for 10 seconds, sucking to pull the mouthpiece tightly against upper teeth.

If child bites a hole in it, then it was too soft. Ask your coach for another mouthpiece and repeat.
