  • A properly fitted helmet is an important first step in player protection. To determine head size, wrap a cloth measuring tape around the circumference of the player's head. Measure approximately 1" above the player's eyebrows at the widest point. Record measurement and refer to chart below:


  • XX-SMALL: Hat Size - 6" - 6-1/4"; Circumference - 19" - 19-1/2"
  • X-SMALL: Hat Size - 6-3/8 - 6-1/2"; Circumference - 20" - 20-1/2"
  • SMALL: Hat Size - 6-5/8" - 6-3/4"; Circumference - 20-3/4" - 21-1/4"
  • MEDIUM: Hat Size - 6-7/8" - 7"; Circumference - 21-1/2" - 22"
  • LARGE: Hat Size - 7-1/8" - 7-1/4"; Circumference - 22-1/4" - 22-3/4"
  • X-LARGE: Hat Size - 7-3/8" - 7-1/2"; Circumference - 23" - 23-1/2"
  • NOTE: If measurement falls between helmet sizes, choose the smaller size


  • Interlock hands on top of helmet and press down - player should feel pressure on crown of their head, not their brow
  • Skin of the forehead should move with the front pad
  • Front of helmet should be about 1" above the eyebrows
  • Jaw pads should feel firm against their face
  • There should be no room for twisting
  • To avoid injury or discomfort, never wear a helmet positioned too high or too low


  • Tighten all four straps evenly until secure and lock buckles into place
  • Cup should be centered and snug over their chin
  • Adjust chin strap until cup is firmly pressed against their chin
  • When buckled, helmet should feel comfortable and snug

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Helmet!! I bought this helmet for my 8 year old son who is playing his 1st year of tackle football. First of all the helmet arrived earlier than anticipated which was AWESOME because he needed it by the 11th. It arrived on the 8th. I have purchased other items from Dick's Sporting Goods on-line and I haven't been disappointed. The helmet was perfect. All of the pieces were there. My son wore the helmet the first day and was satisfied. It's probably one of most inexpensive helmets on the market but with proper training the helmet does the job. January 14, 2014

I scored the only td's in the game I LOVE the helmet Me and my freind got in a colishon and he got a cacushin so we both got this helmet and we both LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! October 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Helmet for Kids The best part about the helmet was the experience during the purchase. Your staff member was extremely helpful with the fit and selection. He gets an A + in my book. That's what selling is all about. The helmet is a great choice for 7th and 8th grede football, maybe all the way up to varsity. We ordered on-line in the store and the helmet was received days later. Can't beat it! August 21, 2012
