Following is a CLA Memo released
today (May 9/13) regarding Facemasks concerns being address:
As result of concerns about facemasks, some members of the Canadian Lacrosse
Association (CLA) Executive and members of the CLA Equipment Review Committee
(ERC) met today.
While the CLA and ERC further investigate the concerns, the CLA wishes to
communicate one immediate step that can be taken.
As there have been concerns expressed about the chin cup that is attached to
the Gait G7 Senior, Gait G7 Junior, ONTY N2 Senior and the ONTY N2 Junior
facemasks at time of purchase we advise that it can be switched with any chin
cup which is part of a CSA currently approved hockey mask.
The CLA reminds players that a CSA currently approved hockey mask also complies
with CLA policy.
The health and safety of Canadian lacrosse athletes is a priority of the CLA
and more information will follow as the CLA continues to examine the concerns.
Wayne Gretzky is among a long list of NHL players that honed their handeye coordination and physical endurance by playing lacrosse in the summer.
Other players include: Brendan Shanahan, Doug Gilmour, Cliff Ronning, Joe Sakic, Steve Larmer, Collin Patterson, Tim Hunter, Paul Kariya, Don Cherry, Gary Roberts, Adam Oates, Paul Coffey, Joe Nieuwendyk. …and many more!
"If sport has a high point of the year, it must be the first week of spring." "...When I was growing up, I used to love this time of year. It was when I put my hockey equipment away and I was absolutely ecstatic to see the end of the hockey season. One of the worst things to happen to the game, in my opinion, has been year-round hockey and, in particular, summer hockey. "All it does for kids, as far as I can tell, is keep them out of sports they should be doing in warmer weather. I could hardly wait to get my lacrosse stick out and start throwing the ball around. It didn't matter how cold or rainy it would be, we'd be out firing the ball against walls and working on our moves as we played the lacrosse equivalent to road hockey." "All the good hockey players seemed to play lacrosse in those days and everyone of them learned something from the game to carry over to the other - things athletes can only learn by mixing up games they play when they are young."
