If at any time during the season, the team locates a sponsor, the team members will be reimbursed.

A GAMEBREAKER helmet is required for the Spring league. No other helmets are permitted for safety and uniformity reasons. We provide options to rent or purchase a GameBreaker helmet. Please see below for details.

Gamebreaker Helmets


  • Helmets must be rented during the Spring 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.



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).
