Best Answer

Helmet on the head. Shoulder pads on your shoulders. These two are easily identified. Hip pads on the hips, you can tell the hip pads by their shape...if you hold them upside down, the flat part down, they usually have a circular portion on top. They will have snaps too, and these snaps attach to the belt. Butt pad goes over the tailbone. It has snaps and attaches to the belt also. Thigh pads go on the FRONT of the thigh. They look like a half pipe with three ribs pointing outward. You put them in pockets inside the pants. Knee pads go on the knees and are shaped like a "bra cup". They are put inside pockets in the pants as well. Mouth pieces are dipped in boiling water for 4-5 seconds until softened then bit down on. Try to create a suction witin the mouth and it will form to the teeth and bite best. Afterwards, dip into cold water to hold form. The long tab on the mouth piece is attached to the helmet's face mask. Don't cut it off unless the league your in allows it...most don't.
