Spartans will no longer be furnishing team batting helmets for the A/AA Teams. Each child will be required to provide an NOCSAE certified batting helmet. All helmets must be Gray, Black or Purple.  For safety as well as hygiene, we as a board feel it is in the best interests of all that each and every player has their own helmet.. You can expect to pay somewhere between $17.00 and $35.00 for a properly approved helmet.
