NXL Vegas Update: Chin Straps Mandatory in 2017 & Related Info

There is one major rule for the 2017 NXL season we want to make sure each participant and coach is fully aware of.

The NXL Rule Book has always stated that masks must meet ASTM standards, which includes the use of the original manufacturer’s chin strap. This rule will be strictly enforced in 2017. Players must use ASTM approved goggles fitted with the manufacturer’s chin strap and the chin strap must be properly fastened. If a player is found to be playing without a chin strap or an unfastened chin strap, that player will be eliminated.

Please contact your goggle manufacturer for more information on how to obtain a replacement strap.

The National Xball League’s 2017 season opener will be held at the Craig Ranch Regional Park in Las Vegas this week!  Located 10 miles (about 20 minutes) from the north end of the world famous Las Vegas strip; Craig Ranch Regional Park is conveniently just outside of the strip’s congestion, but close enough for teams wanting to enjoy the full experience of Las Vegas.The Trade Show and Team Check-In will begin on Thursday March 16th.  Games for the Xball formats will begin Friday, March 18th while 5-Man and 10-Man formats are played on Saturday and/or Sunday.  There are three new divisions this year including a 2 vs 2 format, D5 5-Man for beginners and an Open Mechanical Division.

VIP Lounge: Upgrade to a table in the shade
What would Vegas be without a VIP lounge?  A special VIP section will be set up along the pro field where VIP ticket holders can enjoy their drinks and treats while watching the Pro games from the comfort of tabled seating under a tented section behind the Pro Field start gate.  Ticket holders will also have in and out access to the grandstand seating.  NXL staff will be selling both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to both VIP ticket holders as well as grandstand ticket holders.  Lounge passes are sold online for $25 per day/$60 for all three days.  Buy your tickets now!
