Flag Football to Require Soft Helmets

Starting in the 2019 season, SAYFA will require that players wear a soft helmet to play in the SAYFA flag football league. As parents, you will be responsible for purchasing this helmet. A reference list of brands and prices can be found by clicking here or using the link on the SAYFA home page.

SAYFA will not require that you purchase a certain brand. We feel that while they will provide differing degrees of safety, the soft helmets on the market will provide the protection needed from accidental contact with other players. 

Please pursue the level of research you would do with anything you purchase. SAYFA is not endorsing any specific product, we are simply providing a list of possible options. 

If you are planning on having your player participate in the My 7on7 league in the spring, you will be required to have a "Gamebreakers" brand helmet for their league. Keep this in mind when purchasing your helmet.
