**Important Message Regarding Ineligible Lacrosse Helmets - Possible Action Required**

 

Dear Parents,

We would like to share some important information regarding two lacrosse helmets (Cascade Model R and Warrior Regulator) that were recently deemed non-compliant by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) and therefore cannot be used in our spring lacrosse program.  Full details from U.S. Lacrosse can be found in the below link:

As indicated, you can contact each manufacturer directly for resolution.  Or, our local Lacrosse Unlimited store (739 Williams Street) has offered to help you through the process and handle the retrofit or replacement for you.  You can bring your helmet to the team at Lacrosse Unlimited for a consultation on your options.

Please note:  if you are returning a Cascade Model R for retrofit, please first register using the below link and bring your shipping label with you to Lacrosse Unlimited.

Please attend to this important issue as soon as possible as these helmets will not be allowed in any field play this spring.

 

Thank you,

Longmeadow Boys Lacrosse Association
