  • Mouthpiece

The mouthpiece must attach to the helmet, so do not get a strapless mouthpiece.

BOIL/MOLD IT BEFORE THE FIRST PRACTICE as most mouthpieces require.

(PARENT TIP: BUY 2 and mold them both so you have a spare ready to go. Mouthpieces get chewed up, lost, broken, and you don't want your child sitting on the sidelines because they don't have the right equipment.)
