Equipment Lock-Up

Our equipment lock-up address and updated hours are posted here

When we start our programs, we will announce Equipment Fitting Nights by age group and last name.  At the conclusion of each season, we will do the same for returns.

We provide most of the gear! This is a huge advantage that youth football provides over other sports, making it extremely cost-effective, especially considering kids grow fast. As they grow, we will keep gear fitting perfectly and safe! We loan you a helmet, shoulder pads, practice jersey, practice pants and game pants. No equipment will be issued WITHOUT the player being registered in RAMP, our online registration database.

There is a $450 cheque or credit card deposit required at the time of fittings. The deposit is not actually used, it is held until equipment is returned. If it is not returned by the specified date for your program, the deposit will then be used. If equipment is returned after the due date, your refund will be returned minus a $100 administration fee.

You’ll need to purchase personal gear including cleats (football cleats are recommended, particularly for older players), girdle and pads, league socks, mouth guard and chin strap. All of the gear except shoes, is available for sale from our equipment lock-up during equipment fittings.

New game jerseys are also ordered every season and are kept by the player each year as a valued keepsake! Compared to other sports, youth football is a terrific value with greater time spent by players practicing and exercising, more coaches to help provide individualized attention and expensive equipment… all provided for in the low cost of membership.

To help keep our costs down, we ask that you take care of equipment - follow the washing instructions on gear, clean as soon after a game as possible, etc. - so that we can make sure that we are giving our players the best equipment possible. All equipment signed out MUST BE returned. The following list of fees will be charged if individual equipment does not come back.

  • HELMET $250.00          
  • SHOULDER PADS $125.00
  • PURPLE GAME PANTS $ 30.00        
  • PRACTICE PANTS $20.00
  • PRACTICE JERSEY $ 20.00        
  • BELT $ 5.00
