New Boys Stick Rules and other 2018 rule changes!!!
IMPORTANT!! - Please make sure that you are in compliance with the new stick rules for 2018. Boys sticks must comply with NCAA rules or NCAA+NFHS rules. Here is a link with a good summary of all the boys rule changes that occurred in 2017.
US Lacrosse writes the rules for high school girls’ lacrosse, and those rules are endorsed by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). For 2017, US Lacrosse has produced a stand-along youth rule book for ages 14U and below. The rule sets in this book align with the principles of the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM), helping to ensure age-appropriate rules that allow athletes to progress and reach their maximum potential.

The following is a post written by Gordon Corsetti, Manager of Officials Education for US Lacrosse.
We say officials have the best seat in the house. While it’s true that we are the closest to the action we can’t watch the game the same way everyone else does, which is typically watching where the ball goes. I love being on the field officiating, but I only see one-half or one-third of the entire game depending on if I’m working in a two- or three-person crew. That’s because proper mechanics demand that at least one official watches the action that no one else is paying attention to away from the ball.
The 2017 WLF Spring Jamboree (March 25 and 26 at Woodside Sports Complex) needs a new leader and committee. Dave Wollin will work with the new, incoming people into February for transitional purposes. If you are not a person that can step up to help put on this great event for the kids, please pass this on to many other people. This group needs to be in place by December, otherwise the Jamboree will not be able to continue.
Thank you for your assistance in helping me hand this over to the next generation of lacrosse volunteers. Your help is greatly appreciated.
