What Your Kids Need

Here's a basic listing of some of the items each child should have prior to the first team practice.  Contact your coach directly if you have specific questions or concerns.  In general, all equipment items can be picked up at a local sports retailer such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Sports Authority or Modell's (There are other local retailers as well.  Check Google or the white pages for listings.)
