Score Big on Football – Find the Fitting

Football can be a dangerous sport. Your athlete needs the right protection to keep them safe. Their fate is in the fit.

An ill-fitted helmet can cause just as much damage as bad technique. Take accurate measurements before you order gear online. Use a tape measure for head circumference. Measure above the ears and about 1” above the eyebrows. Most sites contain sizing guides for added convenience.

More than just shoes for traction, cleats play a vital role in performance.  Football is a game of specializations. One type of cleat does not suit every position. Take into consideration different studs as well as levels of ankle support. The level of support directly affects the amount of mobility your athlete will have.

Above all, research! It pays to spend an extra few minutes exploring options. More money does not always mean better quality.
