Norwalk Junior Lacrosse Spring Practices Start

LAX IS BACK. 

Norwalk Junior Lacrosse Girls teams have started practice indoors at SoNo Field House and will continue there on weekends throughout March (see schedule by age group on www.norwalklax.org). 

 

NJrLax U11 Lightning, U13 Junior, and U15 Senior boys will hold assessment and assignment sessions, also in SoNo Field House, on Saturday, March 14th 7:00-9:00 AM and Sunday, March 29th 2:00-4:00 PM. 

 

Field conditions permitting, the outdoor season starts up Monday, March 9, with our 16th Annual Preseason Tune-Up Camps on the FieldTurf fields at Norwalk High and Brien McMahon. We're hoping for a thaw and/or heavy rain to melt the snow on the fields ... or we may be able to arrange to have the fields plowed. Watch your in-box and www.norwalklax.org for updates.

 

Preseason Tune-Up Camp is free for registered Spring 2015 NJrLax players. 

 

The varsity head coaches at NHS and BMHS, assisted by their assistant coaches and players, lead these camps. Regular outdoor practices at Veterans Park will start the week of March 23, weather and field conditions permitting (in 2014, Norwalk Recreation & Parks was not able to open the fields until early April).

 

Don’t Delay—you must be a registered 2015 NJrLacrosse player to participate.

If you haven’t registered yet, you may do so by clicking on "Register Online" in the left menu at norwalklax.org. If you have any registration questions, or need financial aid, contact Norwalk Lacrosse Association president Jack Couch at  , or 203-838-0232.

UPDATE-Helmets Fail NOCSAE Standard

Yet more discussion, from the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/06/sports/safety-organization-deems-popular-helmet-models-unsuitable-for-play.html?emc=edit_tnt_20141205&nlid=654505&tntemail0=y

 

Also, sensible commentary from a coach in CONNY-member program (Doc's): http://laxallstars.com/helmetgate-rolls/

 

Here is a link to a further discussion of NOCSAE's decertification of the Cascade Model R and the Warrior Regulator helmets:

http://24sevenlax.com/reaction-to-nocsaes-decision-to-decertify-two-popular-helmets/

 

Note that the article suggests that Cascade and Warrior are shipping no helmets of any model currently.

 

Original Post
In case anybody was considering a helmet purchase, NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) has announced 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. This means that they cannot be used in lacrosse at any level until their shortcomings are rectified.

 

No other helmets on the market have been identified as non-compliant.

 

For more information, including responses from Warrior and Cascade, you can go to the US Lacrosse press release:  http://www.uslacrosse.org/multimedia-center/press-releases-news/postid/808/nocsae-announces-that-two-lacrosse-helmets-are-non-compliant-with-standard.aspx

 

We will update this notice as new information becomes available.

If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.

http://vimeo.com/64675548

The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. So it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.

Enjoy.
