There are standard pieces of equipment that are made available and issued from youth leagues all the way up. These include shoulder pads, helmets, hip pads, knee pads, thigh pads, and a tailbone pad. Athletic supporters are also required at most levels up to high school. In addition, there are supplementary pads designed to further protect problem areas. Quarterbacks will wear "flak jackets", which are hard pads attached to a light harness that protect the kidneys. Linemen and linebackers may wear neck collars (which tie underneath the shoulder pads) that reduce the likelihood of neck injuries. There also are a host of custom-made padding designed specifically to protect injuries; these ordinarily are little more than thick foam padding cut to conform to the injured area. In reality, the amount of padding worn by players at the college and professional level is normally little more than a helmet, modified shoulder pads, and chopped-up knee pads. Nearly everything else is sacrificed in the name of greater speed and agility.
