"i never saw this called once last year for just having one chin strap and the hanging strap, they allow it"
Absolutely. That is legal!!!!!!
What is not legal is when you "CUT" 2 straps off the 4 point chin cup.
"You Cannot Alter Any Piece of Original Equipment."
This messed me up alot last year so here goes..........
If you have a hockey helmet & buy a LAX cage for it, you must leave the original throat strap on the hockey helmet as this is an original piece of the hockey helmet. Last year lots of players removed the throat strap as well as the ear "hoops" that this strap attaches to. Altered & now illegal.
If you have a LACROSSE HELMET with a LACROSSE MASK you only need the "Throat Strap" if it came with the LAX Helmet. Most of the new Lax helmets do not have these straps.
SO.... all you need there is the chin cup strap from the LAX mask you are attaching to the LAX helmet. Most all of these chin straps are "4 POINTS"
The confusion I saw last year is the Players, Coaches, Parents as well as
Refs were always putting all helmets in the same catagory.
I would like to say different rule for different helmets, but that would be wrong. The main rule you have to look at here is....
"You Cannot Alter Any Piece of Original Equipment"
Oh - Oh . . . . . .
I think I'm confused again
