Equipment Guidelines

At the Emerald Coast Green Wave, safety is our top priority. We believe that providing our athletes with the best possible equipment is essential for their protection and enjoyment of the game. Here's everything you need to know about the equipment we supply and what you'll need to procure before the start of the season:

Equipment Provided by ECGW

  • Riddell SpeedFlex Helmet: Engineered for maximum protection and comfort, the Riddell SpeedFlex Helmet is designed to reduce the risk of head injuries while maintaining performance on the field.

  • Xenith Fly Shoulder Pads or Xenith Flyte Shoulder Pads: Our athletes benefit from the latest in shoulder pad technology, ensuring optimal protection without sacrificing mobility or performance.

  • Cam-Loc Hard Cup Chin Strap: A secure and comfortable chin strap is crucial for keeping the helmet in place during play, reducing the risk of facial and head injuries.

  • Riddell Game Jersey: Our game jerseys are reversible, allowing players to represent their team in both home and away colors while staying comfortable and stylish on the field.

Equipment Required for Players

Before the start of the season, players are responsible for procuring the following equipment:

  • Game Pants: Must be white and worn for both home and away games.

  • Practice Pants: We recommend integrated pants in the brand that best suits your athlete. Any color is acceptable for practice.

  • Practice Jerseys: Any brand or color is acceptable for practice, ensuring players are comfortable and identifiable during training sessions.

  • Football Cleats: Essential for traction and stability on the field, football cleats must be worn for both practice and games.

  • Mouth Guard: A mandatory piece of equipment, mouth guards are crucial for protecting the teeth and mouth during play. Players will not be able to participate in games without a mouth guard. We recommend having a few on hand or in practice/game bags.

  • Socks: Comfortable and durable socks are essential for keeping feet dry and comfortable during practice and games.

  • Water Bottles: Staying hydrated is key to optimal performance on the field. Players are encouraged to bring their own water bottles to every practice and game.

  • Athletic Supporter with Cup (Optional): While optional, an athletic supporter with a cup provides additional protection for male athletes during play.

Guardian Caps

Our 10U and 12U offensive and defensive linemen will have access to Guardian Caps, providing additional protection during practice. Guardian Caps offer several benefits, including:

  • Reduced Impact: Guardian Caps can reduce impact during practice by up to 33%, helping to minimize the risk of head injuries.

  • Helmet Protection: In addition to protecting athletes, Guardian Caps also help reduce wear and tear on helmets and decals, prolonging their lifespan.

  • Temperature Regulation: Guardian Caps can reduce static heat by 15-20 degrees, keeping players cooler and more comfortable during intense workouts.

  • NFL Endorsement: Guardian Caps are mandated by the NFL for practice among various positions, with positive feedback from players and coaches alike.
