Safety of the student athlete while participating in football is one of the State College Area School District’s top priorities. To satisfy that priority, the district provides safety equipment that it believes to be the most appropriate for the prevention of injury to its football players.
Should the participating student athlete and the student athlete’s parent(s) and/or guardian(s) wish to use their own personal football helmet, rather than the District-issued helmet, State College Area School District cannot be held responsible for any injuries arising from or connected with the student athlete’s use of a personal football helmet. The participating student athlete and the student athlete’s parent(s) and/or guardian(s) must understand and accept the risk associated with using a personal football helmet for football practices and games.
Please note, there is a specific make and model of helmets that SCASD will purchase and support. Families purchasing helmets must purchase only those helmets that fall within the SCASD selected helmets. Please see our athletic trainers for guidance prior to purchasing your helmet.
If you wish to order a helmet that does not fall within the list of selected helmets, families are fully responsible for any and all repair and maintenance items, including the purchasing of replacement parts.
