Gamebreaker Helmets

Gamebreaker Helmet Rental

  • Helmets must be rented during the Winter League registration process.
  • You'll be able to pick up your rental helmet at the NFL Flag tent at your first game.
  • At that time a refundable deposit of $40 will be required.
  • This can take the form of a check made payable to NFL Flag San Diego (which we will not cash but simply hold) OR cash. 
  • We have had to institute this policy because rental helmets are routinely not returned to the league following the season.

Helmet Purchase


Sizing instructions will be found in purchase registration.

Helmet shipped directly to you by Gamebreaker.

Gamebreaker offers NFL Flag San Diego families a special package that includes a free cinch pack and a free Shock Doctor Mouthguard ($30 value).

*Note: if ordering after the holidays in early January your helmet will still be received on time most likely, but Gamebreaker is expecting shipping delays. You can select faster shipping options in January if needed but please allow a 48-72 hour window for processing/shipping.
