      • Headgear?
        • One will be issued to you for the season (MUST BE RETURNED)
        • Recommended for practices.  REQUIRED for competition
      • Mouthpiece?
        • If you wear braces, a special two-sided mouthpiece/guard must be worn for practices and competition
      • Athletic supporter or “cup?”
        • Your preference.  No requirements for practice or competition
    • What NOT to wear:
      • Jewelry, bracelets, or headphones, etc.
      • Jeans or any clothing with zippers or hardware (e.g. buttons, or any hard attachments)
    • Bring water in a sealed, unbreakable container

      • Please try to bring your own to avoid spreading germs
    • Do not bring valuables (e.g. wallet, phones, iPods, tablets, etc)

  • Competition:
