For your first sessions you will only need to be dressed in sweats/sports clothing with suitable football boots. If you have a gum shield bring it along.
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.
Athletes are expected to buy their own training clothing; a lower set, gum shield, boots and training pants.
Some players like to own their own Helmet and Shoulder Pads, but this is not essential as we have a stock of helmets and pads that are loaned on a first come, first served basis
The club does have excellent relationships with most of the suppliers in the UK and can attract some discounts.
There are a number of websites where you can purchase equipment;
Football America and EP Sports are the main ones
Alternatively, equipment can be ordered via the Team Manager where we pass on any discounts as we agree them with our suppliers. Jackie Smart. e: Team Manager
