Shoulder Pads - USL Rules - NCAA Men's & Youth
"Beginning January 2022, field players shall wear shoulder pads protectors certified to the NOCSAE commotio cordis protective device standard at the time of manufacture,
or they shall wear an alternative protective device certified to the NOCSAE commotio cordis protective device standard at the time of manufacture."
I have attached an example of what to look for on your pads.
Keep in mind you have until the regular season starts, November, to purchase these.
Loaned equipment will be given out the first day of fall ball. Please be a little early to give your player time to get his equipment and be ready for practice. Unfortunately, with the new rules we will not be able to loan out any shoulder pads.
Locally, only Dick's in Tempe and Play It Again Sports have lacrosse gear. There are many places online that will have gear, including starter sets. Some you can 'subscribe' to and have good specials emailed to you. Here are a few links:
Amazon also has lacrosse equipment. You can go to smile.amazon.com and choose One Team Lacrosse as the charity to benefit from your purchases.
Here are two links to help you size correctly:
Did someone say FREE REGISTRATION?
You can sell ad space on our shooter shirts, or in our program to local business sponsors. Ad space on our team website is included with any purchase. You can also get "shout-outs" or donations from friends and family. Every dollar you earn is a dollar off of your registration fee. Any amount over that goes to your team!
Deadline is the first day of regular-season practice, November 1st. You can get Sponsorship Forms from our website, www.OneTeamLacrosse.com. Look under the Home tab, and choose Documents. Your sponsors can also go to our website and click on the "Advertise and Donate!" tab.
