When will my player receive his game jerseys?
Early registrants should receive jerseys in late July. Late registrants should have jerseys just prior to first scrimmage in August. These will be distributed to head coaches.

There are a number of vendors that will apply block letters to the jersey such as TeamSports, L & M Apparel, etc. This is at your own discretion and is not required by the league.
I need help putting equipment on my player. Where can I receive instruction and/or help?
Each of the equipment manufacturers has instructions on their respective websites. You may also contact your head coach for assistance.
My player is complaining of his helmet being too tight or not fitting correctly. What can I do to fix it?
This often happens over the first few practices as the boys get used to wearing helmets again. The helmets will be able to be removed easier when the player perspires. These helmets should fit very snug.
My player’s helmet or shoulder pads need repaired or are missing pieces. What should I do?
Please notify your head coach and he will contact a BJFL Board member to obtain the necessary part/piece.
