At What Age Should Boys Wear a Cup in Baseball and Hockey?

Boys participating in sports that could lead to testicular contusions should start wearing cups by the age of seven at the very latest. Renowned pediatric urologist Dr. Anthony Atala recommends that boys start wearing a protective cup as soon as they start playing contact sports, and other experts, like Dr. Jay Berger of ProHEALTH Pediatrics, recommends age seven.

What Size Cup Does Your Son Need For Baseball or Hockey?

Many leading brands offer multiple cup sizes, so take your son’s height and weight into consideration when finding a cup and jock shorts combination. Our youth baseball and hockey cups were made with a comfortable ergonomic design that fits youth athletes of many sizes.

What matters is that the entire groin area is covered at all times, even when the athlete is running, jumping, sliding, skating, or performing other athletic activities. Furthermore, there should be space between the testicles and the cup, because you want the cup to absorb all of the shock.

What Materials Should a Youth Athletic Cup Be Made With?

Many popular youth baseball cup brands use plastic, but you should look for something more rugged than that. At NutShellz®, we make our cups with Kevlar and other ballistic-tested materials, because we don’t want any athlete, especially a young athlete, to suffer life-altering contusions, torsions, or ruptures.
