A huge thank you to Tribal's outgoing President, Christian Kiriakos. Coach K has served as President of Tribal for 5 years, and has been coaching for 8 years.
Coach K's leadership has helped make Tribal one of the top programs in youth lacrosse throughout Massachusetts. His enthusiasm and commitment to lacrosse and the Tribal Program is unmatched.
For those of us who have been on the Board with him or coached with him, or had kids on his teams, it has truly been an honor to have worked with him.
Coach K - Tribal will miss you!

Recently two types of lacrosse helmets were deemed NOT certified by NOCSAE and therefore not safe to use. One of those helmets, the Cascade R, now has a procedure in place to modify and re-certify its use at no cost to the customer. Go to http://r.cascadelacrosse.com The other helmet, the Warrior Regulator, has not yet announced plans for modification.
** Please note that Cascade has other helmet models with the letter "R" in them, such as CPX-R, CPV-R, and CS-R, which are NOT included in this issues; they are still certified as NOCSAE approved.
