May I buy my own helmet?

BLC strongly discourages it and would recommend a consultation with our staff prior to purchasing your own helmet.  In addition, we have volume discounts with suppliers to ensure you get a the price.  If you choose to purchase a helmet without a consultation you will need to sign a liability release. BLC prides ourselves in providing our kids with the best and newest safety equipment.  We are regularly reconditioning helmets and replacing older used helmets.  Our kids are one of the best equipped football organizations in the league!!

My helmet hurts - can I get a different one?

It is very common for your helmet to feel uncomfortable and even hurt your head for the first couple of weeks. Helmets must fit tightly to ensure a correct fit. Our coaches take the necessary time to make sure that each helmet is fitted properly. We recommend that once you get your equipment, that you wear your helmet before practice in order to break it in and get used to how it feels. When you put it on, remember to pull it all the way down, hard. If you continue to have discomfort, please let your coach know and we will adjust the fit of your helmet.

What if I need my equipment for a summer camp or off-season conditioning?

Due to inventory tracking, player safety concerns, and liability issues, BLC does not provide equipment prior to the posted equipment handout date for any reason.  All offseason camps or workouts will not contain contact, so protective equipment is never needed.

What happens if I lose or damage something?

Your responsible your child's equipment.  If something is lost, it will need to be replaced.  If something is damaged or is a safety concern, BLC will correct it or replace those items.  Mouth pieces are not replaceable, please do not allow your child to chew on them.  If mouth pieces are chewed flat and deemed unsafe, your child can not participate until a new mouth piece is purchased.
