Little League International has written the following:
Until we receive your response, we are encouraging parents and coaches to contact manufacturers directly to verify if their players’ helmets will retain their NOCSAE certification, and, that they must produce that notice from you, the manufacturer, prior to use in any and all Little League-related activity. Without manufacturer- approval, Little League International will follow the advisement that “the addition of such products to a helmet previously certified as meeting the appropriate NOCSAE standard will make the certification voidable by the helmet manufacturer,” and helmets with a face protector will not be permitted for Little League-use. Little League International will encourage anyone wishing to have additional face protection to use a helmet with a full faceguard that is NOCSAE certified.

We added this question and answer to our FAQ:
How do I turn off "Don't forget your upcoming events!" emails?
SportsEngine (who makes the software that runs our website) has added a new feature that sends notification emails for team practices and games. Unfortunately they have not (yet) given us the ability to turn them off by team or for all parents. Each parent or team manager must do this individually.
Update: SportsEngine has created a video explaining how to turn the notification emails off: share.vidyard.com/watch/wfUAwVevFX9ezkEqk4M9Z9
If this is not clear, contact SportsEngine for instructions on turning these emails off is via online chat. Go to their Contact Us page (https://help.sportsengine.com/customer/portal/emails/new) and click the START LIVE CHAT button.
As soon as anything changes we will post an update.
