Helmet Reconditionaing and Recertification policy

Reconditioning and Recertification of Football Equipment (helmets)

The North Suburban Youth Football League requires each helmet (flag and tackle) be reconditioned and recertified no less than every two years with a maximum life of 10 years.

Reconditioning and Recertification shall be defined as:

Reconditioning - the inspection, cleaning, sanitizing and repair/restoration of athletic equipment to the original performance standard.

Recertification – the reconditioning, testing and proper labeling of athletic equipment that has previously met the NOCSAE standard and recertification standard. A helmet cannot be recertified without being reconditioned.
