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.
US Lacrosse has an established process for headgear manufacturers to have their products listed on the US Lacrosse web site by submitting a letter and verification from an accredited, independent testing facility acknowledging compliance to the ASTM standards.
Manufacturers whose products are in compliance and who have submitted testing results to US Lacrosse have their products listed below.
Headgear Meeting ASTM Standard F3137:
