FAQ

Is Headgear required to play lacrosse?

No. Headgear remains optional in the US Lacrosse Youth Rule Book and in the USL/NFHS Rule Book. US Lacrosse women’s rules allow for the optional use of headgear if it meets ASTM standard F3137. The purpose of this allowance is to acknowledge that while women’s lacrosse is a relatively safe sport, the use of protective headgear is desired by some individuals. Please note that beginning January 1, 2017, only products that meet the ASTM standard will be regarded as legal for play.

What equipment is required to play?

Mandatory equipment that each player must provide for themselves:
• Women’s lacrosse goggles
Girls Lacrosse Mask                                   Girls LAX Mask
• Women’s lacrosse stick (very different from a men’s lacrosse stick) Girls lacrosse sticks must meet US Lacrosse regulation pocket depth by assuring that “the top of the ball remains above the top of the sidewall after pressure has been applied to a ball dropped into the pocket of a horizontally held stick.” The length of a girls lacrosse stick can be between 35-½ and 43-¼ inches.

• Mouth guard – custom fitted is highly recommended
• Cleats (not required by the rules, but a practical necessity for safety and optimum performance)
• Several YELLOW lacrosse balls for practicing at home

Other highly recommended items for cold weather:
• Undergarments for layering (must be BLACK)
• Headband that covers the ears
• Athletic gloves
If your daughter has an interest in playing goalie, you should still get a regular stick and goggles but you do NOT have to purchase goalie equipment. The club will issue all required goalie equipment.
