Youth Rules Revision
The link below will take you to the the revised National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) 2013 Boys Lacrosse Rules Book which govern US Lacrosse boys youth play. These amendments to the 2012 Youth Rules were approved by the US Lacrosse Men’s Game Committee. The overarching principle of the Youth Rules is that the game is to be played with emphasis on the proper development of individual stick skills, team play, player safety, and sportsmanship.
Please do not contact NFHS about the following rules, instead send questions about the US Lacrosse Rules for Boys Youth Lacrosse to the US Lacrosse Men’s Game Rules Subcommittee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
