Posted on: March 28th, 2016 by Chris No Comments

cameroncatcherUnfortunately sports injuries are a part of the game! But it’s the sports injuries we can prevent that we should be thinking about. Studies show that over 60% of all injuries happen during practice and most parents admit to not being as strict about sports equipment during practice.

So it’s important all parents and athletes know exactly what they need during games and practices.

And it’s the younger kids we really need to protect. 40% of all sports related injuries happen to kids ages 5-14.

Here’s what you need to stay safe:

Soccer –
Shin guards – These should cover the majority of the shin and be secured by the appropriate fitting sock.

Baseball and Softball
Cleats (non-metal)
Batters should wear a helmet at all times
Catchers should wear facemask, chest protector and shin guards

Neck Collar/Neck Roll
Jockstrap and Cup
Mouth Guard
Thigh, Hip and Knee Pads
Shoulder Pads


Helmet with strap and face cage or visor.
Neck guard
Shoulder pads
Elbow pads
Hockey Jersey
Hockey gloves
Hockey pants
Shin guards
Hockey socks

Basketball shoes
Faceguard (if needed)
