Updates from MLA/US Lacrosse:

Girls Lacrosse Helmets Optional

The MLA has adopted the US Lacrosse position that the use of headgear is optional in girls lacrosse for the 2017 season.

Points of Emphasis

  • The use of headgear is optional in girls' and women's lacrosse.

  • Any headgear used after January 1, 2017 must meet the ASTM standard, F3137.

  • The ASTM standard, F3137, is a performance standard, not a design standard.

  • Product designs will likely vary from one manufacturer to another.

  • Products must provide full coverage of the head.

  • Products must be worn with required ASTM women’s lacrosse eyewear.

  • There must be marking on both the packaging and product that states that the headgear conforms to ASTM standard F3137.
