    Thumbs up Ontario High School Tournaments

    Today, my coach said we don't need to wear eye protection for pre-qualifying for ropssaa, but in ropssaa you have to. Did your coach say the same thing? o.O

    If you need goggles in the higher level tournaments, you might as well get used to them in the earlier rounds.

    If you wear glasses, you don't need to wear goggles. My cousin who is currently attending HS in Markham told me this.

    I don't think so. Because wearing goggles with glasses = pain. Plus some of us don't have contacts.

    they follow ontario badminton rules, technically ALL tournaments (school and high performance) should enforce the rules. If there are 2 or more players on court, u need goggles...

    Our school (TDSB) coach says that we HAVE to wear goggles, no matter whether we have glasses or not. PSP goggles, I believe they called the big ones over glasses.
    Anything for safety, I guess.

    It's safer to just wear your goggles, especially for doubles.

    LET ME CLEAR THIS ALL UP FOR YOU NOOBS!! if you go to ofsaa, you need goggles, pre qualifying depends on your region, in yraa, they don't really give a damn. as for the goggles part, if you wear full rimmed glasses, then you don't need goggles, if you wear half rimmed or no rim glasses then you must wear goggles in ofsaa...maybe in regional

    Full rimmed doesn't need? I don't think so.
    http://www.ofsaa.on.ca/site/index.cfm?DSP=Chapter&ID=27 gives you the link to the badminton regulations.

    All competitors participating in OFSAA championships must wear protective eyewear
    whenever they are on the court. Protective eyewear must meet ASTMFEO3 approval.
    Last time I checked, normal glasses don't meet ASTMFE03.
