DeBeer Goggles which are NOT legal for play any longer!



​​Letter from Jenn Close | Program Coordinator | Ohio High School Athletic Association:

It has come to my attention that teams/players are still using the DeBeer goggles which are NOT legal for play any longer.  This message was sent to coaches at the beginning of the season and has just been send out again today. 


Please make sure that all officials also have this information:

The email is a reminder to all coaches to please check all eyewear on your girls lacrosse team.  As of January 1, 2017, the only standard that is allowed for legal play is ASTM 3077.  DeBeer eyewear are NOT considered legal eyewear and are not permitted to be worn in any competition per US Lacrosse standards. The most updated list of legal eyewear can be found here: http://www.uslacrosse.org/safety/equipment/approved-eyewear-list.

 A complete list of all complaint girls lacrosse equipment can be found at: http://www.uslacrosse.org/.

Thank you
