All boys grades 1-8th will need to have NOSCAE certified ND200 shoulder pads. These are new for this year and anything older will not be approved. If you do not know if yours is, ask a coach or take to Athletes Connection to verify.
This new mandatory level of protection is designed to reduce impact forces and thus the risk of commotio cordis (cardiac arrest due to a blow to the heart area).
Non-contact, sticks and gloves only.
