New Rule for Unified Field Markings

Included in the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and US Lacrosse rule changes for the 2018 high school lacrosse season was the approval of an optional 120-yard unified field size that can be used for both boys’ and girls’ lacrosse. The existing field sizes for high school lacrosse can still be used, but the unified field is a legal alternative.
Please contact TSLB Chair if you plan to use a Unified field for play.

Procedure for canceling games

A reminder from the Texas South Local Board assignor regarding approaching bad weather and procedure for canceling games:
High school coaches: You need to make a decision 2 hours prior to your start time if you are going to have your game or not.  This way, visiting teams and officials aren’t traveling in adverse conditions for a game that isn’t going to happen.
If you are going to cancel a game due to rain:

1. Notify the Officials assigned to your game. Call or text them.

2. Notify your opponent.

3. Last, Notify the assignor so she can enter it as a rainout and can reschedule when you are ready.

Legal Women's Headgear

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.  At current time there are only two products to choose from: Click HERE for the link.
