4.   Permitted Eye Wear ("Rec Specs")

Since 2006, NJ Law has mandated that any child who wears corrective eyeglasses must wear sports glasses ("rec specs") when playing certain sports (including soccer).Morris United Soccer Club players must comply with this law when participating in MUSC programs.

"Any child who wears corrective eyeglasses while participating in racquetball, squash,tennis, women's lacrosse, basketball, women's field hockey, badminton, paddleball,soccer,volleyball, baseball or softball, sponsored by a school, community or government agency, shallbe required to wear protective eyewear that meets the frames standards of the American Societyfor Testing and Materials (ASTM) F803 and lens standards of the American National StandardsInstitute (ANSI) Z87.1."

Protective sports glasses lenses are made of polycarbonate or trivex material that are shatterproof. Sport glasses frames are constructed from a variety of materials, including plastic and carbon fiber. The temples, the part that rest on the ears are usually made from rubber-type materials that permit greater comfort by preventing the glasses from moving too much during athletic activity.  The protective eyewear is required to meet the frame (and lens) standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM F803 1) and lens standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI Z87.00).
