What do I need to bring to my first session?

The club has helmets and shoulder pads for you to borrow.
As you progress a player must have the following equipment to play:
Helmet – Shoulder Pads – Hip & Coccyx Pads Thigh Pads – Knee Pads – Gum Shield
There are special trousers (Pants) to put the leg pads in and you will need a shirt to practice in: Red for Defence and White for Offence.
Do I need to purchase any equipment?

The club does have excellent relationships with most of the suppliers in the UK and can attract some discounts.
