Are face shields permitted?
No. Face shield's are not permitted during practice or during league games.  However,  medical reasons may require a player to utilize a face shield.  In this event, a Doctor must supply a note clearly indicating the reason that this piece of equipment is needed for the child's safety. A copy of this medical form should be given to the child’s coach, so that in any event questions arise due to the use of the face shield, the coach will be able to provide a legal document stating that this child needs to wear this for safety. If you have further question please feel free to e-mail us or ask us in person at the field.
