A boy should wear a jockstrap with a cup for sports with direct contact, regardless of age. It's a good idea for boys to start wearing a jock for support (no cup) for running, other non-contact sports sometime before puberty starts.

My dad played Aussie Rules football and Rugby and always wore a jockstrap and box (athletic cup). I therefore started wearing a jock when I was about 8 and a cup when I began playing contact sports.

There isn't really an age limit on wearing a jockstrap, a boy can wear them at any age, and should anytime they need protection.

When do guys start wearing a jockstrap?

Definitely any time you need to wear a cup, which doesn't really matter what age. Use the protection when you need it. A boy should probably start wearing one for support at the latest when they start puberty, as things start to grow and bounce around a lot more. There are youth size jockstraps available with or without cups, so those are the best option if you are still growing down there or small in the waist.

What age is appropriate for a young boy to start wearing a jockstrap?

Boys should wear jockstraps and cups if they are playing in a contact sport. This will help prevent injury (doesn't completely stop injury just helps in preventing small mishaps). If they are not playing a sport and just want to wear a jock as underwear. I would wait until they start buying their own or begin deciding what they are going to wear and not wear what mommy tells them to. Jockstraps can be worn for underwear especially when it is hot in the summer or year around if you live in the South. Cotton or soft lycra works good for underwear

A jockstrap keeps your testicles in place. An athletic cup is an essential piece of equipment for any contact sport and fits inside your jockstrap.
