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.
