Goggles
If purchasing new goggles this season, please ensure that they are SEI certified, to be compliant with new safety standards that went into effect January 1, 2020. See the list of Certified Goggles

  • Please note that retailers may still be selling uncertified goggles that do not meet these standards. Please be sure to choose a pair with the SEI mark. Safety standards are reviewed and typically change every 3-5 years. More info on these safety standards can be found in the link

**If your athlete already has goggles that are not on the SEI list, please consider purchasing a new pair from the list.
