Under the direction of its Board of Directors, US Lacrosse has developed new age-appropriate, national rules of play for youth boys’ lacrosse and youth girls’ lacrosse.
As part of this initiative, US Lacrosse staff and volunteers surveyed more than 50 youth leagues that include nearly 170,000 youth players to better understand the landscape of current rules being used around the country, in addition to receiving input from individual coaches, officials, administrators, youth players and parents.
Based on that research, as well as input from the US Lacrosse Sports Science & Safety Committee, the US Lacrosse Board of Directors approved the implementation of the new youth rules for the 2012 season. Those rules will be utilized in all USL events.
