Many of you expressed an interest re-opening the Spirit Wear store from Elevation as you did not have an opportunity to order last time. This will be your last opportunity for spirit wear from Elevation. You have until January 18, 2015 at midnight to place your orders. This will ensure we have the items in time for the start of our season in March.
This information is for the Cascade R helmet only.
Please read this email and follow the instructions to get your son's helmet modified to meet NOCSAE certification standards. Players will not be allowed to practice/play without a properly certified helmet.
Elevation informed us of this: "If you are a customer who purchased a helmet but has not yet picked it up, we will be returning the helmets from our warehouse and when the replacements arrive we will notify you to pick them up.
Please note this recall is mandatory and any helmet that is updated will be given a new NOCSAE certification sticker that will allow officials to see which helmets comply with the certification and which do not. Helmets missing this sticker will not be allowed in competition"

CASCADE LACROSSE ANNOUNCES SOLUTION FOR CASCADE R HELMET
Cascade Lacrosse has reached an agreement with the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) on a solution for the recently decertified Cascade R helmet.
The solution will involve a simple modification to Cascade R helmets currently in the marketplace. NOCSAE has accepted the solution. Cascade's data confirms the helmet, as modified by this solution, meets NOCSAE certification standards. For NOCSAE certification purposes, the modified helmet is treated as a new model, identified as the Cascade R-M, although it will continue to be marketed by Cascade under the Cascade R name. Moving forward all newly manufactured Cascade R-M helmets will be certified as meeting the NOCSAE standards. A tamper-resistant sticker will be placed on all modified helmets as well as on newly manufactured Cascade R-M helmets to differentiate them from non-certified Cascade R models. Model R helmets that have not been ofifcially modified by Cascade do not meet NOCSAE standards and certification will remain void.
Cascade will make the modification to existing helmets at its Liverpool, N.Y. facility beginning December 16, 2014. The modification will be free of charge for consumers and retailers, including shipping.
"We are extremely pleased that Cascade and NOCSAE have reached an agreement to modify existing Cascade R helmets and put helmets back in play for our loyal customers," said Tim Ellsworth, Global Business Director, Cascade Lacrosse. "We have been working closely with NOCSAE and will work diligently to ensure that all Cascade R helmets returned are modified as quickly as possible. We thank everyone for their patience and support."
To fully reinstate the NOCSAE license, which was suspended in conjunction with the R model decertification, Cascade is cooperating with a review by NOCSAE of certification data for all of its models, and is having a third-party audit of Cascade's quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) processes.
Cascade is currently finalizing its own internal audit and expects the third-party QA/QC audit to be completed by December 18, 2014. NOCSAE will partially reinstate Cascade's license agreement for the production of new Cascade R-M helmets upon demonstratiion of satisfactory audit results fr its QA/QC processes. The license agreement will be fully restored for other Cascade models upon demonstrating that such models certified by Cascade are supported by necessary data.
Cascade is also currently reviewing test results for all of its lacrosse helmets to ensure they meet both Cascade and NOCSAE standards.
