As you may know, as of January 1, 2014, ALL lacrosse balls used for play MUST have the NOCSAE seal on the ball (it must say “meets NOCSAE standard” on the ball).
NOCSAE is the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment, who commissions research in sports medicine & science and establishes standards for athletic equipment. To read more about the rule change, please read the article, What’s in a Ball? which originally appeared in Lacrosse Magazine in January 2013.
This rule was inserted into the rulebook last year but we urge you to send a reminder to the local league leaders, program administrators and coaches reminding them of this rule before they order balls for the 2014 season.
This is a rule change for the boys and girls game. Manufacturers are making these balls but they have not hit the shelves of retailers to date. It will be beneficial to order now from your local retailer to be placed on a list and not wait for the spring, when quantities could become limited. Officials will be reminded that only balls with the NOCSAE seal will be allowed for play and we don’t want games canceled or postponed because of this change.
