Critical Dates and Info:
PLAYER REGISTRATION: See registratrion instructions above.
AGE & WEIGHTS FOR 2015: See the Ages & Weights tab above.
REGISTRATION FEES: Our registration fee this year will be $270.
Dates: First distribution is Sunday, 8/9 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. After that we will distribute equipment every Monday starting at 5:30 and then come out to the practice field after that. We will do that each Monday until everyone has their equipment. Even if you don't have equipment you should come to practice and listen/learn...there will even be some drills you can do.
Equipment Location: the American Self Storage located at 3700 Plyers Mill Road, Kensington, MD.
What we provide: Like last year, BSF will be distributing ONLY the following equipment pieces at each distribution: 1.) helmet, 2.) shoulder pads. Game pants, game jerseys and practice jerseys will also be provided but given out at practice
What parents provice: Parents will be responsible for providing their own practice pants and pads for the pants (these pads will need to be used in both practice pants and game pants). Here are the two options we recommend for your practice pants and lower body pads:
Option A: You buy an integrated “girdle”. All the major sporting goods stores sell them (Dick’s, Sports Authority, Modell’s, etc). Basically, the girdle holds the required hip, butt and thigh pads. The player simply pulls the girdle on and then he pulls the practice pants or game pants over the girdle. If you don’t already own practice pants...then you will need to buy those too. The Youth girdles are around $40 but can be used for their entire youth career. The pads are permanently stitched in so you never have to worry about losing pads and you just throw the whole girdle into the wash to clean them. So, most girdles I have seen DO NOT HAVE knee pads in them...so you must buy 2 knee pads separately. Football practice pants (and game pants) have a pocket that will hold the knee pads. So, if you buy a girdle with NO knee pads…be sure to buy a pair of knee pads too. They may be making some girdles now WITH knee pads but that may just be in adult sizes. In any event…make sure you have knee pads.
Option B: They also sell at Dicks, Sports Authority, Modells, etc..."integrated" practice pants. That means they sell football practice pants with ALL the pads (including knee pads) permanently stitched in. So in this case, you buy one item and you have the pants, hip pads, butt pad, thigh pads AND THE KNEE pads. You get it all in one shot. Sounds good right...but there is a catch. The pads DO NOT come out of the practice pants and go in the game pants. So, the kids do in this situation is they just pull their game pants (with no pads in them) over the practice pants for games. So, that is certainly an option. The game pants will certainly be snug but they are supposed to fit that way. So, that is your second option and again...the practice pants should be wearable for multiple years.
