Equipment Fittings and Purchase Dates

GridIron does not provide equipment as part of your registration.  Parents are responsible for providing a helmet, shoulder pads, and pants for their football player.  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.

We schedule several equipment fitting and purchase dates over the summer to help "bring the store" to you for convenience, to allow you to have a knowledgeable person help properly fit your child, and to give you the benefit of the league’s discount.    

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.  

Please read the description of each fitting date carefully and choose what works best for you.



Gulf Coast will also host two equipment fittings and purchase opportunities.  Gulf Coast is a distributor of the Xenith helmet and shoulder pads and Douglas shoulder pads.  They will have this equipment in stock and on site, including integrated youth football pants (built-in pads) by Pro Team.  Parents will be able to have their child fitted by the professionals of Gulf Coast and can purchase the equipment and walk away with it that day.  They accept Visa, MasterCard, cash and checks.
