Player Safety Reminder

From time to time players may get hit in the head by the ball. This can be especially dangerous for players who require glasses, as contact could damage or break the glasses which could also injure players on the field.

Players who require prescription glasses are to be allowed to wear them during practices and matches. But for the greatest safety, retaining straps should be worn or rubber bands may be used for this purpose.

Prescription goggles, such as the type used my racquetball players, are also permitted subject to the approval of the referee prior to the start of the match. Spectacle guards made of plastic or other hard material are not permitted.

Remember, "A player must not use equipment or wear anything which is dangerous to himself or another player". The referee is the sole judge of whether or not the individual item in question is permissible to wear in the game.
