An improperly fitted football helmet will not provide adequate protection to the player. To fit a helmet, you should know the shape and size of the players head. Look for irregularities that may require fitting adjustments. The eyebrows should be approximately one to one and one half inches below the upper front edge of the helmet. The side holes should be centered over the player's ears. The helmet should cover the back of the head without cutting into the player's neck. The helmet's chin pads should match the contour of the jaw. Smaller players may require larger pads.

The face mask provides the best protection when it's about two fingers widths away from the tip of the player's nose. Grasp the face mask and ask the player to move their head side to side and then up and down. The helmet should not move independently. If the helmet pops up or shifts around, it isn't fitted properly. The helmet should be tight but not cause discomfort or pain. The chin strap should fit snugly and hold the helmet tightly. A chin strap with a plastic cup will provide better protection than a regular leather strap. Also, a high mounted strap is better for younger players because of the way that it attaches to the helmet.

It is essential that this critical piece of safety equipment be worn correctly, especially for young players.

Helmets have pads on the inside and can be blown up to fit the player.
