NOCSAE Seal of Approval
Beginning in January 2021, US Lacrosse boys’ and girls’ youth field lacrosse rules will require that all goalie chest protectors must meet the NOCSAE performance standard ND200 in order to be deemed legal for play. In addition, Beginning in 2022, all field players in boys’ lacrosse must wear protection for commotio cordis that also meets the same NOCSAE performance standard... All goalie and field player equipment meeting the NOCSAE performance standard must contain an SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) certification mark.
Most shoulder pads that are more than one year old do not meet this requirement. Parents must check to see if their player's pads meet this new standard in order to use them and if you are purchasing equipment for a new player, you need to ensure that the pads that you purchase meets the new requirement.

Lacrosse is one of the nation’s fastest-growing team sports and the need for qualified officials has never been higher. Joining the third team on the field is a perfect way for former players to stay involved in the game and find great camaraderie.
Even if you’ve never played, SCCLA can provide training opportunities to become certified to referee lacrosse games. This is a great opportunity for high schoolers to give back to lacrosse and to make money at the same time. If interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
