Many problems can be corrected using the tools and supplies that each team has, so contact your coach for assistance. If they cannot resolve the issue, then they will arrange to get you a replacement.

My helmet hurts, can I get a different one?

It is extremely common for your helmet to hurt your head for the first couple of weeks. They must be tight fitting in order to protect the head, and this tightness can result in some discomfort. Every effort will be made during equipment hand out to ensure a correct fit. We recommend that once you get your equipment, you wear your helmet, before camp and practice start, in order to break it in. And remember, when you wear it, pull it all the way down, hard. Here's a video for your reference: http://usafootball.com/health-safety/equipment-fitting DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INFLATE OR DEFLATE HELMETS. Inflatable bladders are easy to damage and are only to be adjusted by coaches or equipment director.

Can I provide my own helmet?

Yes, but must be club approved color with the Willow Grove Bears emblem applied. Emblem will be provided by club.
