The English Lacrosse Board took the decision on Wednesday 28th November 2012 to recommend the use of eye protection in all forms of female lacrosse.
This decision has been taken in the light of information obtained from two recent surveys carried out by English Lacrosse and following a review of other injury incidence data. Based on the survey results, and the need to safeguard both individual players and the Association, it was agreed that eye protection would be recommended.
Lacrosse remains a relatively safe game, but it is clear that the growing adoption of eye protection in other parts of the lacrosse world is leading to a reduction in serious injury, therefore English Lacrosse feels that it is now appropriate to make the above recommendation in order to minimise risk.
English Lacrosse is in discussion with equipment suppliers to ensure that suitable eye protection is available if your students require it.
English Lacrosse staff are available to discuss this further with you. If you require any further information or clarification about the recommendation that all female lacrosse players wear eye protection please contact Mark Coups with queries via email firstname.lastname@example.org
