The NPPL is concerned that players are not following rule 5.01 Face Mask / Goggles. The rule states;
Players, officials and any other individuals present in a goggle-safe area (e.g. the playing field and chrono-station) must wear Goggles with full-face protection manufactured for the use in paintball games in its original form. Goggles must meet or exceed ASTM standards for eye protection and lenses must be in good repair. Goggles must have adequate ear protection. See ASTM Standard F1776
The NPPL officials will be checking all goggle systems in San Diego to make sure all goggles meet the above standard. Please be advised that if your goggle has been modified from its original manufactures form the goggle will not be allowed on the field. Thus the player will have to get a new pair or pair that meets the standard in order to play.
It is also recommended that lenses be replaced after a taking a direct hit. Please make sure your lenses are on good condition and if they need to be replaced please do so.
Play it Safe
