A boy should wear a jockstrap to hold a cup in place, for sports with that kind of contact, regardless of age. Boys should also start wearing a regular jockstrap for support at the latest once puberty starts, as this is when the risk is greatest for testicular torsion. Youth sizes are available with smaller pouches for boys who have not fully grown and developed yet.

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.

You wear it the same as your underwear against your bare skin with the cup pocket facing you you can also either wear it by itself or under a pair of underwear? As an athletic, I have worn a jockstrap while running, weightlifting, playing basketball and etc. but I am no expert. I never wear underwear over my jockstrap. The jock gives you much needed support.

If you are riding a bike, I would recommend wearing a jockstrap with a soft cup.
