Crasche Hat Now Allowed to Be Worn as Protective Headgear in Girls Lacrosse

WOODBURY, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2012) - Crasche New York has announced that, in accordance with the US Lacrosse Association's rules, the Crasche hat can now be worn as protective headgear at all levels of girls lacrosse, including National Collegiate Athletic Association competition.

The Crasche hat can be worn by athletes in sports where they usually do not wear helmets, such as girls lacrosse, girls field hockey and touch football. The outer layers of the inserts are composed of a strong polycarbonate plastic, the same material used to make bulletproof glass. The inner layers are made of neoprene rubber, which is also used in making wet suits, and contain a series of air chambers that help cushion the impact and help spread the force of the impact over the entire insert. This new product fills a need in girls lacrosse, which prohibits the use of helmets in competition.

US Lacrosse is a 501c(3) organization with a membership of more than 400,000 lacrosse players, coaches, officials and enthusiasts. It is the national governing body of men's and women's lacrosse, primarily serving the youth game. It provides a leadership role in virtually every aspect of the game, boasts 64 chapters throughout the United States, and offers programs and services to inspire participation while protecting the integrity of the sport.

All Crasche hats provide impact protection and are manufactured here in the United States. For more information, visit
