HELMET REQUIREMENTS

ALL helmets must be stamped with the "Meets NOCSAE Standard" logo. In almost all cases, this will not be a sticker but will be molded into the plastic on the back of the helmet itself. Its hard to see, but easy to feel. For 5/6 and 7/8 divisions, helmets MUST have chin straps. A chin cup does not have to be on the strap. Facemasks are allowed but not required for players other than the catcher. Pitchers in 5/6 and 7/8 will be supplied a chest protector and facemask.
