My students (athletes) are the 7th and 8th grade football teams. This is a great group of boys who I would like to help out with new equipment. We are in need of new helmets for the team. The boys love the game and do a great job of showing that on and off the field.
As safety information comes out we want to do everything we can to ensure the best equipment for the team.
The team requires an extra amount as many helmets need to be replaced as they are no longer suitable to be used.
Without new helmets we will not have enough for the team and potentially have to turn away students who wish to participate. This is a needed change as many of the old helmets have been deemed unsafe and we need to replace them. This is an unexpected expense that our program was not ready for.
As a coach, I want to create the best experience for the team, and safety is also a huge part of that.
New helmets are a key in safety for teams. With the research that has gone into concussions, it is extremely important to outfit the team in equipment that we feel will be safe.
