Gear – Children gloves come in different sizes. For our smallest athletes a 10 inch glove will likely fit, however as the kids age and grow so does their glove. A 12 year old typically wears a glove around 11 inches, give or take an inch. Outfield and first base gloves are typically bigger at 12 inches and infield gloves are smaller at 11-11 ¾. Sizing charts are available online.
Each child needs their own helmet. Helmets come in two sizes and are one size fits most. They also grow with the child. Helmets can last for years.
Children turning 9+ need a protective jock or jill.
Cleats are not necessary but are welcome. No metal cleats.
Bats – we have them but if you have your own it MUST have the USA symbol on it. No exceptions!
