Matte is the New Black
FPPW has decided to move to Matte Black helmets instead of glossy black helmets for the upcoming 2016 season and years to come. This change is to stay current with football uniform styles prevalent in the high school/college ranks and to align with the Vandegrift football program. We expect the Viper community, and our boys, will love the look of matte black helmets with their chrome V’s shining in the sun.
This change will take time to complete and we will allow glossy black helmets that have recently been purchased, or for returning players who have helmets that still fit. If you are new to FPPW, or it is time for a new helmet, please ensure that new helmet you purchase is matte black. Face masks will remain GREY, so no change there.
Again, matte black is the new color for FPPW helmets, but if your glossy black helmet still fits, feel free to use it.
Am I required to purchase a new matte black helmet?
No you are not. Only if you are new to FPPW or require a new helmet in 2016 would you need to purchase a matte black helmet.
Can I still use my glossy black helmet?
Yes. If you have a glossy black helmet that you have used for FPPW you are welcome to use it again.
Where can I purchase a matte black helmet?
You are welcome to purchase your matte black helmet from any retailer you prefer. CenTex Sporting Goods and Dicks’s are sponsors of FPPW but you are free to shop anywhere you choose.
Can I use a black face mask?
No, FPPW mandates all face masks are grey.
Who can fit a helmet for my son?
Dick’s Sporting Goods, CenTex Sporting Goods, Academy, or your preferred retailer can fit helmets.
Can I purchase my helmet at equipment day?
Yes, CenTex Sporting Goods will be on-site for uniform fittings and they will have matte black helmets to try on and order.
Do I have to buy my helmet form CenTex Sporting Goods?
No, you are free to purchase football equipment from your preferred retailer.
