We use a Youth Sized football for middle school football in Indiana.
The shoulder pads designed for youth football are engineered to withstand the rigors if playing youth football. They are not properly designed for or properly sized for an adult. It an adult were to use youth sized pads they stand a greater risk of injury.
They use a official youth size football that you can find at any walmart or sporting good store
No your football team should distribute their own helmet to you
Football uses it. The NFL and CFL both use it for jerseys, gloves and cleats.
It depends on the size of the school and it's football program, how big their funds are. It also depends on the player. A starter who's jersey receives a lot of wear and tear will need a new jersey, while a second string or bench player won't get much damage to their jersey.The big programs use new jerseys every game not only because they look clean and good, but because they sell and auction the jerseys for extra money or donate them to charity's for them to auction. In the past, equipment managers made repairs to jerseys by hand, but since most of the suppliers are Nike or Adidas and the jerseys are not made in the USA, its easier and cheaper to just replace the uniform.
The new football season is approaching. How do you pick out football equipment for a young football player? Football equipment for young football players usually consists of a helmet, shoulder pads, jock strap, jerseys, pants, mouthpiece and cleats. Jerseys, helmets and pants are typically provided or picked out by the school or youth football team. A football player might be financially responsible for the rest of the football equipment. Depending on the football team, all of the above football equipment could come with a standard fee. Some youth teams or organizations have hand me downs from past years to ease the burden of the cost for football equipment.If that doesn’t happen, finding the correct football equipment is sometimes tough. The mouthpiece, cleats and jock strap search can be intimidating. Mouthpieces usually come in one size. There will be instructions on the mouthpiece box that discuss how to mold that particular mouthpiece for the youth who will be wearing it. A mouthpiece can usually be purchased and found in the sporting goods department of most major retailers.Cleats are a different issue. Cleats are shoes for football that have grips on the bottom that allow for better grasp of the football surface. Cleats come in different sizes, shapes and colors. Different positions might require a different grade of cleats in football. Finding a good pair of cleats might require going to a sporting goods store. Perhaps the youth football team has approved a particular type of cleats for use? Maybe the entire football team is using a particular color to exhibit team spirit or unity.Jock straps aren’t the first thing a consumer wants to buy. This football equipment is perhaps the most important piece one will ever purchase for their youth football player. Like other accessories, jock straps come in different sizes and shapes. Finding the appropriate fit is not always an easy task. A jock strap is not a comfortable piece of football equipment but the use of it is usually mandated.There are many athletic stores that have an excellent selection of football equipment to choose from. Chain stores like Wal-Mart and Target also typically have this type of football equipment in the sporting goods section.
You are but a bare youth. His youth was against him in the fight.
