BOYS SHOULDER PAD REQUIREMENTS
Beginning on January 1, 2022 all boys lacrosse players are required to wear shoulder pads that are approved by the National Operating Committee on Standard for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE); NOCSAE standard ND200.
While USA Lacrosse believes there will not be shortages of these new pads before the start of the season, we encourage all families to purchase this equipment ASAP.
KEY REMINDERS FOR BOYS EQUIPMENT
- Effective January 1, 2022, shoulder pads for boys’ field players must be designed for lacrosse and meet NOCSAE standard ND200.
