When you're exercising or playing sports, you should always make sure you use proper protective gear. Whether it's a helmet for skateboarding, shoulder pads for football or a jock strap for contact sports!

Why Wear A Jock Strap?

There's not much that hurts a guy more than getting nailed in the nuts. A testicle injury is not only extremely painful, it can also be embarassing and more importantly, potentially harmful to your long-term health. The best way to avoid getting hurt in this sensitive area when you play sports is to wear a protective cup or a jock strap. Athletic cups are usually made of hard plastic, are worn over the groin area, and provide a good level of shielding and safety for the testicles.

Jock Straps - Buying Tips

Check your fit. Make sure the athletic cup and/or athletic supporter is the right size. If you don't feel comfortable wearing a standard jock strap, try using a pair of compression shorts that have a protective cup built in. These often provide a better fit and are more comfortable to wear. Safety equipment that's too small or too big won't protect you as effectively. Always be aware of the risks of your sport and think about ways of preventing injuries before you step on the court, field, skatebowl or wherever you might be.

When Should You Wear A Jockstrap or Protective Cup

It's recommended that you wear a protective cup when you're playing football, hockey, lacrosse, baseball, karate or any other sports where your testicles might get hit or kicked. If you're not sure, ask your coach, P.E. teacher or parent if you need a cup for your sport.

Here's a couple of different styles of jock straps for youth sports:

  • X0 Youth Compression Short with ProCup - A comfortable pair of compression shorts with a removeable protective cup. Lightweight and ideal for football, lacrosse or hockey. For more info or to buy a pair, click here.
