Players are required to wear the team match jersey, shorts, socks for games. The team also provides players with a practice jersey, a team polo shirt and tracksuit. This is the M-A Team Kit.
Mouth guards are required at BOTH practices and games. At every practice and match a player will need a mouth guard in order to participate. If a player does not bring one, he/she simply cannot participate in contact activity. They are available from various sports retailers like Rugby City, Big 5, Dick's Sporting Goods and a variety of different vendors.
We recommend purchasing multiple inexpensive ones and keeping them with your player at all times so you have back ups.
Rugby cleats are similar to soccer cleats. They can't have the front stud that football cleats have. We practice and play primarily on turf fields, so keep that in mind.
