New US Lacrosse guidelines re: girls' goggles

US Lacrosse has announced new guidelines for girls' goggles, effective January 1, 2020.

 

https://www.uslacrosse.org/safety/equipment/approved-eyewear-list

 

Unfortunately, this will likely result in the need to replace old goggles with those that are considered US Lacrosse approved under these new guidelines.

Players MUST be present to receive equipment.

Please bring a $200 check made payable to "VYI Lacrosse," which will be kept on file as a security deposit and returned when the issued equipment is returned at the end of the season.

The VYI Equipment Annex is the small brick building located behind the Vienna Community Center (120 Cherry Street, SE, Vienna VA 22180).

Concussion Awareness & Information

VYI Parents:

Concussion awareness is a growing topic in youth sports. In support of our athletes, VYI Lacrosse is providing an overview of concussions to both raise concussion awareness and also instill knowledge about the symptoms and risks of concussions across our coaching staff and parent community.

Please take a few minutes to review the information, which includes signs and symptoms of concussion and return to play risks and guidelines.

Parents are also encouraged to visit the "Heads-up" page on the CDC website to review concussion information and symptoms:
