Softball Canada Memo

Date: March 28, 2012

To: P/T UICs, P/T Offices

CC: Larry Gould, Mike Branchaud, ODC, Donna Ozarko

From: Technical Standards Committee and the ODC


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.
