Junior Bat Sizes
Choosing the correct bat for each player is incredibly important, to ensure the young player reaches his/her full potential. Junior bats come in many sizes to accommodate a player’s height and strength. The weight of the bat is very important as a too heavy a bat could hinder development and technique.

The table above illustrates the approximate weights of junior bats for each size in Lbs & OZ. The weigh of a bat will depend on the willow it is crafted from and the origin of the wood – English or Kashmir Willow. English Willow is slightly lighter and will be on the lighter side of the scale.
A good fitting helmet should be comfortable to wear with very little movement, the peak should be inline with the eyebrows, and the grill is to be fitted as per manufacturer’s instructions. For continued safety periodically check the grill screws are tight.
To measure the head take a tape around the head, just above the eyebrows and ears.
