Flag Football Headgear Ratings

A total of 12 Flag Football headgear that have been evaluated using the STAR evaluation system are included in the Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings. Our impact tests evaluate a headgear's ability to reduce linear and rotational acceleration of the head resulting from impacts a flag football player might see on the field. Headgear with more stars provide a reduction in concussion risk compared to headgear with less stars. Group ratings are differentiated by pre-determined thresholds.

For flag football headgear, we recommend any 4 or 5 star headgear. While there are some differences in impact performance within these groups, other factors such as cost, fit, coverage, and comfort should be considered when purchasing a headgear.

*Any player in any sport can sustain a head injury with even the very best head protection. This analysis is based on data trends and probabilities, and therefore a specific person’s risk may vary. This variation is likely dominated by genetic differences, health history, and impact factors such as muscle activation.
