New Boys Equipment Requirements

 

Brigade Parents,

In Fall 2019, the National Association of State High School Federations (NFHS) and US Lacrosse adopted the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) ND200, a new standard for lacrosse chest protection.  This new standard took effect for goalie chest protection January 2021, and will be in effect for all field players starting January 2022.

If you have a boys goalie and need support with updated protection for this season, please reach out to or .  

If you are a parent of a field player and they have outgrown their chest/ shoulder pads for this season, you are strongly encouraged to consider shoulder pads that are compliant with the new standard.  Please check out our parent's equipment guide, including links to compliant equipment, located here:  Equipment Guide.

A season-long coupon for Dick's Clothing and Sporting Goods stores is located here.

Equipment Updates for 2021

Girls Lacrosse

Eyewear:

US Lacrosse adopted new standards for eyewear in 2020, but the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL) did not enforce this new standard for the Spring 2020 season. (NVYLL is our governing organization for youth lacrosse in the area.) 

The new standard will apply for Spring 2021 so make sure all players have approved eyewear that is certified to meet the ASTM 3077 performance standard. Check your eyewear to see if has the markings ‘ASTM 3077’ on them. All eyewear sold in local retail stores like Dicks Sporting Goods or Lacrosse Unlimited in Vienna have the new certification. 

There is ONE exception to this rule and that is if your child requires Rx lenses. At this time there are no options for prescription lenses or goggles that meet the new standard. So your player can wear existing Rx lens goggles until  there is a manufacturer who produces prescription lenses/goggles which meets the ASTM 3077 standard as required by US Lacrosse and NVYLL.

Boys & Girls Lacrosse

Goalkeepers:

Beginning January 1, 2021, all boys and girl's goalkeepers will be required to wear chest protectors that meet the NOCSAE ND200 performance standard for lacrosse and bear the SEI certification mark shown here. Please refer to the US Lacrosse website for more information.
