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.
Attention HS Coaches: US Lacrosse has sent out a memo regarding the NFHS rules clarifications for 2018, and it is posted on US Lacrosse arbiter hub. This is for high school rules, and corrects some typos or other mistakes in the 2018 NFHS rulebook.

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.
