Keep the following points in mind when selecting a new softball helmet from DICK’S:
Helmet Type: Basically, you have two main options to choose from: a softball helmet with a mask or an open-face helmet with no mask. Most softball leagues require hitters to wear facial protection at the plate, so you may want to consider a helmet with a built-in mask to make sure you’re covered. You can also buy an open-face helmet and add a mask yourself, but be aware that this may void the manufacturer’s warranty.
Size: Whether you need a helmet for a Little Leaguer or a fastpitch batting helmet, you’ll find the perfect fit at DICK’S. Not sure what helmet size to choose? It’s simple to find your size at home. Grab a measuring tape and wrap it once around the head, making sure to stay above the ears and eyebrows. This will give you the circumference of the head, which is how most manufacturer’s list their helmet sizes on our product pages. When you receive the helmet, make sure it fits securely and does not move when swinging a bat or running.
Safety Standards: To help ensure you get the highest quality equipment, choose a helmet that meets NOCSAE standards. Many softball leagues require helmets to have the NOCSAE stamp.
