Equipment

The Burlington Minor Football Association (BMFA) Equipment Room is managed and operated by the Director of Equipment. This person and their team of volunteers ensure that all phases of equipment preparation are taken care of for each of our teams. Equipment is stored at Nelson Stadium. Our volunteers will help you get fitted with the necessary equipment to make sure your time on the field is fun and injury-free. Your equipment is your responsibility. Make sure to take good care of your equipment by washing and drying it out as necessary after each practice or game.

What kind of equipment is required to play?

We provide all registered players with the necessary equipment needed to play the game, with the exception of a few items (e.g., jock straps, cleats, etc.). Please contact your coach and/or the Director of Equipment to find out your specific equipment needs.
