This conference will sponsor football for the first time in 2017. Nichols, Salve Regina, and Becker each used new helmet designs in 2016 (shown above).


BECKER

2005 - 2008 2009 - 2011 2012
2013 2014 2015 -
*see note 1 below

2005 was the first season of football for Becker.

*1 This design is "blank" on its left side, but has white uniform numerals on its right side (as represented below).


CURRY

The recent sequence of helmet designs for this team is somewhat unclear. It has been reported to me that the team used gray helmets in 1998 with the team name "Colonels" in a script font, colored purple, on the sides; a conflicting report indicated that the helmets were plain silver with purple facemasks from 1996 through 1998. A switch to black helmets was made in 1999; these featured the word "Curry" on the sides in some unspecified color.

It is unclear how long the black helmets were in use, but I believe the team was again using silver or gray helmets immediately prior to the switch to purple helmets, which is said to have occurred in 2002. The only photographs that I have seen from 2002 appear to show no logos worn on the helmets.

The helmets used from at least 1989 through 1993 have been described as plain silver without any logo (facemask color was not specified); another report indicated that a "purple overlapping 'CC'" logo was worn on silver helmets earlier during the 1980s.

*1 Apparently throughout the period when the "2003? - 2009" helmet was in use, the logo was actually worn on the right sides only of the helmets, with the left sides "blank". This scheme was retained with the new-for-2010 helmet, also (at least through the 2010 season).


ENDICOTT

2003 - 2006 2007 -

The 2003 season was the first for the Endicott football team.


NICHOLS

? - 2004? 2005 2006 - 2010
*see note 1 below
2011 - 2015 2016 -

*1 This design was used throughout the 2005 season except for the last game (November 5 at Western New England); during that game the bison logo was not worn.


SALVE REGINA

1999 - 2000 2001 - 2010 2011 - 2012
2013 2014 - 2015 2016 -
*see note 1 below

*1 The 2014-2015 helmet design used the "SR" logo only on the left side; gray uniform numerals were worn on the right side (as represented below).


WESTERN NEW ENGLAND

2005 - 2012 2013 -

From 2002 through 2004, Western New England used royal blue helmet shells with white facemasks and with a decal consisting of a large yellow "W" with a bear's face in front of the "W", as shown in the photograph here. I would appreciate a copy of the helmet logo, as well as a copy of the previously-used one, which was the letters "WNEC" in yellow (which was also worn on blue helmets with white facemasks).
