We want to make sure all of our members are aware that 2 specific lacrosse helmets are no longer certified as safety compliant and will not be allowed to be used by children in our program:
US Lacrosse, the national governing body for men’s and women’s lacrosse, has been notified by NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) that two lacrosse helmet models currently available in the marketplace -- the Cascade Model R and the Warrior Regulator -- do not meet the NOCSAE helmet standard, ND041.
NOCSAE’s public statement, available in its entirety at www.nocsae.org, says that the organization made its determination following an independent investigation and evaluation of the two helmets, including a review of each manufacturer’s internal testing and quality control data. As a result, NOCSAE has voided the manufacturer’s certification of compliance, for all manufacturing dates, for the two helmet models.
Rules written by US Lacrosse, the NCAA and the NFHS (National Federation of State High School Associations) mandate that all helmets must meet NOCSAE standards and be NOCSAE certified. Both models had previously been certified by the manufacturers as being compliant with the NOCSAE standard.
NOCSAE’s statement adds that both Cascade and Warrior have been notified of these conclusions by NOCSAE, and have indicated that they are working to address the issue.
Consumers seeking further information about these two helmet models are advised to contact the manufacturers directly: Cascade (1-800-537-1702); Warrior (1-800-968-7845).
The Hills Lacrosse Club operates on a non-profit basis, and is open for participation to children in the Watchung Hills Regional High School sending district, ages 5 to 14.
We work with young athletes to teach the fundamentals of Lacrosse with a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and personal development. Our goal is to provide participants with an athletic environment that:
Fosters Social Abilities
Develops Important Life Skills
Rewards Persistance & Dedication
