Equipment Fittings and Purchase Dates

Gridiron does not provide equipment as part of your registration.  Parents are responsible for providing a helmet, chinstrap, mouthpiece, shoulder pads, and pants for their tackle football player.  For the 7 on 7 division, parents are responsible for providing the mouthpiece, shorts, and cleats.  

Why doesn't the league provide equipment?  When it comes to the helmet and shoulder pads, we feel it is best for the parent to choose what best suits their child and their budget.  You know your child best and his specific needs and body type.  You can re-use your equipment from year to year as long as it still fits and is in good condition.  The goal is to keep this from becoming a recurring cost to you and, at the same time, allowing you the freedom to put your child in the equipment best suited for him.  YOU own your equipment, not the league. 

In the event you need equipment and do not have the financial means to purchase it, please do not let that hinder you from play.  We have an inventory of donated equipment that may fit your athlete.  Please reach out to us and we will arrange a time for a fitting.

**Below are the equipment fitting and purchase dates we have scheduled with our newest league sponsor, Dick's Sporting Goods. 

HOWEVER....THIS IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL!  You can purchase your equipment at any time, at any major sporting goods store of your choosing.  It is entirely up to you where you purchase your equipment!  Just make sure you have your equipment by the first day of practice.
