TABLE OF CONTENTS
Over the underwear, males normally wear a boxer jock strap and females wear a jill strap. Boxer jock straps also come with a garter belt or Velcro adhesive to help to keep the socks secure. Each type incorporates a protective cup.
For effective shock absorption, it’s important the individual is fitted correctly according to the player’s normal waist size.
Any tears should be repaired to ensure the protective cup stays in the correct position. If the cup cracks, it should be replaced immediately.
The strap and protective cup should be hung to dry and the strap should be machine washed regularly.
