Lacrosse Helmet Recall

Lacrosse Helmet Recall

Recently two lacrosse helmets currently available have been recalled by NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) due to safety concerns.  We strongly encourage you to check to make sure this recall does not affect you. 

  • Cascade Model R (details on Cascade’s resolution can be found here).
  • Warrior Regulator helmets

US Lacrosse and, subsequently, CONNY Lacrosse rules require that a player must have a NOCSAE approved helmet.  By not having approved equipment the player will be removed from the playing field and it may void your insurance.

Please click here for more information from US Lacrosse including FAQs. CONNY Lacrosse also has posted some information about the recall on the front page of their website.  To get specific information on how to return a helmet, reach out to the helmet manufacturers directly (contact and website details provided in the US Lacrosse link).  The manufacturer will answer any and all questions about returns and replacements.

GYL Statement on Player Commitment

In light of the tremendous growth of youth lacrosse, in particular the increasing number of playing options for elementary and middle school children in Greenwich, GYL is repeating here its standing policy on Player Commitment. In addition, US Lacrosse provides the following article, 5 Big Things Every Lacrosse Parent Should Know as guidance in raising your young athletes. 

 

GYL Statement on Player Commitment 

  • Participation on a GYL travel team requires enthusiasm, focus and 100% effort.
  • We expect that if you want to play on any GYL team (House League, Travel Academy or Travel) you will attend all practices and games in their entirety.  
  • In fairness to those players who do attend all practices and games, players who miss practices or games without good reason (school, religion, family or health) may lose playing time or their position on the team.
  • If you want to play on a GYL team and you also play another spring sport, we expect that you will make lacrosse your PRIORITY sport during the GYL spring season. 
  • Our expectation, on behalf of all boys and girls who want to play for GYL, is that you will attend all lacrosse events, even if there is a scheduling conflict with your other sport. 
  • Players who need to miss a practice or game for good reason must email or call their coach prior to the practice or game they will miss.
