Essential is used to identify a piece that MUST be purchased by all players on the team. If there are items under the Essential heading on the store, that means the Coach is requiring that those pieces be purchased by all players.
This does not force the customer to purchase these items, they are just pinned to the top of the store and strongly recommended by the Coach as gear that will possibly be utilized as a uniform. Any other items not listed as essential are optional.
