Update – posted 12/05/14:
From a 12/04/14 press release from Cascade, they are working closely with NOCSAE on a retrofit to the R model helmet and may have this completed very soon. When it is released, there will be information provided on where to get the retrofit and how to apply it.

NOCSAE Announces Two Lacrosse Helmets are Non-Compliant with Standard: “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.”

Level 1 Certification Q & A


All YCLA head coaches must hold the Level 1 Certification through US Lacrosse. In order to be 100% Level 1 certified through US Lacrosse, you must complete their background check (an NCSI background check). After all stages have been completed (link attached) you will then receive proof from US Lax that you are level 1 certified. If you have any questions please drop me a line.
