Welcome to Columbus Lacrosse
Coaches and Team Contacts,
We would like to inform you that the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) has invalidated the certification on the Cascade R and the Warrior Regulator helmets. This means that both the Cascade R and Warrior Regulator helmets are not legal for use, regardless of purchase or manufacturer date. NOCSAE has NOT invalidated any other helmet models from Cascade or Warrior.
We have spoken with both Warrior and Cascade about their products and this issue, they continue to stand by their products. Both companies have done extensive separate independent labs that have shown they meet applicable NOCSAE standards. We want to reassure you that both Warrior and Cascade are working closely with NOCSAE to resolve this issue.
Lastly, we want to let you know we take pride in keeping your student athletes SAFE! After speaking with the officials, the facilities, and internally we have decided to NOT ALLOW anyone who is wearing the Cascade R and Warrior Regulator helmets to participate. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this has caused you, your team and your organization. We will provide you with any and all additional information as soon as it comes available. Below we have provided you with all the links and phone numbers which have been provided to us by each of the companies involved. If you have any questions please contact me anytime.
