THE CLA MEMO has been posted on the BCLA Website linked here: https://bcla.centraldesktop.com/home/viewfile?guid=574596087C72B691AED98C386D7B52EDD4D5124E5&id=36473314&a80427678db9d75ed5c593b8a4879f51
The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) has confirmed that, after voiding the certification of the Cascade R model helmet on November 24, 2014, Cascade has developed a solution and re-certification process for the helmet that has been approved by NOCSAE. The modified Cascade R helmet models will now be designated as the Cascade R-M.
According to the official release from Cascade, “The solution will involve a simple modification to Cascade R helmets currently in the marketplace. Cascade will make the modification to existing helmets at its Liverpool, N.Y. facility beginning December 16, 2014. The modification will be free of charge for consumers and retailers, including shipping.”
Further, NOCSAE has confirmed that, “The Cascade R helmet will remain decertified unless and until it has been returned to Cascade and properly modified. NOCSAE has required that the modified Cascade R-M have a specialized tamperproof label with the manufacturers certification statement and NOCSAE lacrosse logo, as well as a unique serial number that will be indexed to the serial number of the modified helmet so that all modified model R-M’s can be tracked.”
For more information and to view the official release, please visit the NOCSAE website – http://nocsae.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Cascade-R-M-RELEASE-12-12-14.pdf
For information about the Cascade Model R helmet issue, please visit the Cascade website – http://www.cascadelacrosse.com/
For instructions on how to return your Cascade R helmet for certified modification, please go to – http://r.cascadelacrosse.com/
Any Cascade R helmet that has not received the appropriate modifications will remain decertified by NOCSAE and therefore not be permitted per CLA policy 184.108.40.206.
Season Greetings from the Sr. Shamrocks!
Hope all is well as the organizations are gearing up for 2015 Season. We are doing the same and 2015 looks to be another exciting Season for Shamrock Fans.
We just wanted to reach out to Saanich Lacrosse to help us promote our Give ‘em Rocks in their Socks Holiday Promo. Here is the link: http://www.victoriashamrocks.com/news-blogs/team-news/item/give-em-rocks-in-their-socks. A JPEG is attached to this announcement.
We also will have some exciting stuff for the kids in the New Year (save the dates), including our St. Paddy’s Day Shoot-Around on March 15th, and our 2015 Spring Break camp from March 16th – 19th. We will reach out early in the New Year to let Saanich Lacrosse know when these promotions will occur.
Hope you have a great Christmas!
