    My coach mentioned that the guidelines for helmets has changed and that the helmets will be different this next season but mentioned the new helmets may be available from the vendors at the nationals.
    I however forgot what specifically he said was changing on them and I couldnt find any information on this online.

    Wanting to make sure I get one of the new ones but I need to be able to identify them

    The strap arrangement is different---placed lower on the mask and with a double-fold Velcro closure.

    It's only for FIE masks, but I see makers adding the feature to their non-FIE masks as well.

    Thank you sir. By any chance do you know if the vendors here at the nationals will have the new ones with the new strap arrangement?

    Yes. I have already seen some of the new masks around at tournaments. Some vendors are also supposed to be offering to retrofit older masks with the new straps.
