Cascade Lacrosse has reached an agreement with the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) on a solution for the recently decertified Cascade R helmet.
The solution will involve a simple modification to Cascade R helmets currently in the marketplace. NOCSAE has accepted the solution. Cascade's data confirms the helmet, as modified by this solution, meets NOCSAE certification standards. For NOCSAE certification purposes, the modified helmet is treated as a new model, identified as the Cascade R-M, although it will continue to be marketed by Cascade under the Cascade R name. Moving forward all newly manufactured Cascade R-M helmets will be certified as meeting the NOCSAE standards. A tamper-resistant sticker will be placed on all modified helmets as well as on newly manufactured Cascade R-M helmets to differentiate them from non-certified Cascade R models. Model R helmets that have not been officially modified by Cascade do not meet NOCSAE standards and certification will remain void.
Cascade will make the modification to existing helmets at its Liverpool, N.Y. facility beginning December 16, 2014. The modification will be free of charge for consumers and retailers, including shipping.
Helmets provided to our GCRGLC coaches and goalies will be collected by our grade level coordinators for retrofitting by Cascade.
Cascade is also currently reviewing test results for all of its lacrosse helmets to ensure they meet both Cascade and NOCSAE standards.

GCRGLC is a travel program, consisting of 8 - 9 game schedule, 4 home and 4 - 5 away, with the last game of the season held at SUNY Farmingdale - NCPAL Lacrosse Festival. Games can be played on either Saturday or Sunday. Communities that have field lights may schedule games during the evening. Day and time is at the discretion of the home community. The schedule will not be published until mid-March.
Conflicts with other sports - Games and practices will conflict with other travel sports. We follow the School Sports Schedule which places Lacrosse as a Spring Sport along with Softball, Track, Baseball, Tennis and Gymnastics. Therefore Lacrosse is to take priority over any sport that is not listed as a spring sport according to the school sports calendar.
Game Playing Time - While GCRGLC 2nd to 6th grade is a developmental program, equal playing time is not guaranteed for players who miss, arrive late, or leave practice early, or miss the prior week’s game because of another sport.
For questions concerning the GCRGLC, please contact your grade level coordinator. There contact information can be found in the Board Directory.
