Special Olympics Ontario requests, that Floor Hockey Coaches check every helmet that is being used in Floor Hockey programs; to ensure that they are CSA approved. Non CSA approved helmets, are not be used in any setting (practice or competition).  CSA certified products, have a certification mark on them. For a visual please visit http://www.csa-international.org/certification_marks/marks_for_canada/

Please note, “Masquerader” helmets, often referred to as “Street Hockey Helmets”  are NOT CSA approved and are not be used.

We would like to take this opportunity, to remind Coaches; that safety checks should be conducted on all equipment, at regular intervals.   Please check your helmets at your next practice.
