    NEW SHOULDER PAD REQUIREMENTS FOR 2022

    As a reminder, the implementation date for the previously-approved USA Lacrosse and NFHS rule change mandating that players' shoulder pads (1) be designed for lacrosse and (2) meet the NOCSAE ND200 standard remains January 1, 2022.

    This Jan. 1, 2022, implementation date follows a 2019 rule change that required goalie chest protectors to be designed for lacrosse and meet the NOCSAE ND200 standard beginning Jan. 1, 2021. 

    USA Lacrosse encourages all players to purchase shoulder pads that meet NOCSAE ND200 before the upcoming January 1, 2022, implementation date for players' shoulder pads.  The new shoulder pad requirement will become part of the coaches' certification to officials for all games played in 2022. 

    NOTE: As of September 1, 2021, USA Lacrosse announced that the implementation date requiring shoulder pads to be designed for lacrosse and meet the NOCSAE ND200 standard will remains January 1, 2022, although USA Lacrosse has been made aware of concerns raised by some that supply chain disruptions may create challenged for players seeking to obtain compliant shoulder pads by the start of the 2022 season. USA Lacrosse states that their leadership has spoken with multiple manufacturers and retailers, who do not expect any shortages or delays to will affect the start of next season.

    Lacrosse Parenting 101....

    As sports parents, our view of lacrosse is from the sidelines. There’s not a lot we can do about what goes on during the game – in the field, from the coaching box or in the team huddles – but there are several ways we can help improve youth lacrosse as a parent.

    1. Keep our sense of humor.  Find the fun in our child’s game instead of worrying about how many minutes they play or how many points they make.

    2. Turn a deaf ear. To enjoy the game, we must ignore trash talk, and if we can’t, we need to choose our sideline location carefully!

    3. Develop a thick skin. If we cannot turn a deaf ear to the ignorant and senseless remarks we hear,  we better develop a thick skin, one that is not overly sensitive to the rudeness of others.

    4. Learn to tame your tongue.   We must not coach our child from the sidelines. It’s distracting to them, undermines the coach, and puts pressure on your child to perform up to your standards.

    5. Zip our lips. If you can’t say anything nice about a player, don’t say anything at all.  Someone is always listening. 

    If you can follow these five guidelines, you’ll make youth lacrosse a better game!
