EDGEWOOD, N.Y., June 16, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Lacrosse Unlimited, the world’s largest purveyor of lacrosse gear, is proud to be launching its Shoulder Pad “Give and Grow” program. For every twenty-five shoulder pads purchased through Lacrosse Unlimited, they will donate one shoulder pad back to a program in need. This aligns with Lacrosse Unlimited’s core values and The Lacrosse Unlimited Foundation’s mission to make a difference in the community through the sport of lacrosse.

This program coincides with the roll out by NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) of new shoulder pad safety rules, aimed to prevent Commotio Cordis, a rare but extremely dangerous injury that can cause sudden death. Starting January of 2022, all shoulder pads must be NOCSAE approved. As players transition to the new equipment, Lacrosse Unlimited will GIVE back to players who need it most & help GROW the game in all communities by ensuring no players get left behind in this important safety transition.
