2017 US Lacrosse Youth Rules

For the first time in its history, US Lacrosse has produced standalone youth rule books for boys’ and girls’ lacrosse.

In previous years, the youth rules were contained as a list of modifications to the high school rules in the back of the National Federation of State High School Associations Boys’ Rulebook.

The new format helps provide a comprehensive set of rules at each age set (6U, 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U) and the rule descriptions have been simplified to make them easier to understand for coaches, officials, parents and players.
