We STRONGLY recommend that players in Intramurals and above purchase and wear:
  • Sliding Shorts- Also known as compression pants, they are worn under uniform pants or shorts.
  • Sliding Knee Pad(s)- Knee pads protect the knees and shins from scraps and bruises during play.
  • Mouth Guard- Protect the pearly whites during defensive play.
  • FACE PROTECTOR Especially Pitchers and infielders
These items protect the player and give them the confidence to get down and dirty and play hard. Below are some additional items and specifically what to look for when purchasing them.  If you still need assistance, please let your coach know and they will gladly assist.
HELMET:It must meet a few requirements:
  • It must fit properly, have a face mask and chin strap.
  • It must be NOCSAE approved. (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment)
  • The NOCSAE seal must appear on the helmet as well as the face mask.
BAT: Make sure you get a FASTPITCH bat.
  • Have it properly fit for the player for length and weight.
