Coaches, Trainer or Faculty Equipment Manager

(Compare this checklist to the manufacturer’s guidelines)

Players don helmet and buckle chinstrap



Trained Professional(s) Check:


  1. chinstrap cup centered on the chin, anchoring straps flat and taut, passing under the facemask. Chinstrap buckles with teeth facing up. Straps not loose, stretched or broken. Replace as needed. Snaps in good repair

  2. bottom of forehead padding - 1 inch above the eyebrow. Adjust padding or air in the bladder.

  3. helmet ear openings aligned approximately with ear canals. Adjust padding or air in the bladder.

  4. facemask 3 finger widths from tip of nose. Check facemask for chipped paint, loose attachments, movement, denting or flattening. Repair attachments, replace dented or chipped masks as needed.

  5. rear padding covers the bony prominence of the skull. Adjust padding or air in bladder.

  6. front to back torsion – forehead skin should wrinkle. Helmet should NOT slide forward and down on the nose or backwards on to the neck. Adjust chinstrap, padding or air in bladder

  7. side torsion – grasp face mask with both hands and attempt to rotate sideways. Forehead and skin near jaw pads should wrinkle. Player’s nose should remain between the anchoring screws that hold the facemask in place on the forehead. Adjust padding, chinstrap or air in bladder

  8. examine shell for cracks; examine mounting rivets, screws, velcro and snaps for breakage, distortion or looseness. Replace as needed

  9. replace damaged or worn forehead, rear skull and jaw pads.
