Softball Canada Memo

To: P/T UICs, P/T Offices
CC: Larry Gould, Mike Branchaud, ODC, Donna Ozarko
From: Technical Standards Committee and the ODC
RE: Recall of RAPTOR LACROSSE HELMETS
ATTENTION: Effective immediately – recall of RAPTOR LACROSSE HELMETS
The ODC is withdrawing their approval for a defensive player using any lacrosse helmet due to the Easton Rapture Lacrosse helmet recall.
Ensure this notice is passed onto your membership.
See the attached file Raptor Retailer Notice from the manufacturer Easton Sports for further information and details.
Safety is the primary concern and until helmet manufacturers can ensure their products can withstand contact by a ball at over 100 MPH the ODC will not approve them.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused your membership.
