NOCSAE LACROSSE BALLS:           *** IMPORTANT REMINDER!! ***

Please note that ALL HS Teams MUST NOW USE NOCSAE Standard Lacrosse balls for ALL games. (Beyond just our HS concerns, they are also required from Youth on up to HS for both the men’s and women’s games.)

If you do not have NOCSAE labeled lacrosse balls at game time, the game officials WILL NOT PROCEED WITH PLAY.

If you are having issues with getting NOCSAE balls in time for your games, your only option may be to make an arrangements with your game day opponent to supply balls for the game.

It is recommended that you begin phasing out non-NOCSAE Standard balls ASAP!! Including for practice use at the HS and MS levels where the ball travels with more power. Again, just a recommendation!

For more details on the new Standard that has been adopted by US Lacrosse, the NCAA and the NFHS, please go to: http://www.uslacrosse.org/about-the-sport/health-safety/equipment/nocsae-ball-mandate.aspx.

NOTE ALSO: You are also REQUIRED to supply balls around the ENTIRE field in 2014: 4 Balls on each end line and 4 balls on each sideline. 16 total wrapped around the field. Reset them at half-time and it may be helpful to recruit properly supervised ball boys to assist with you home games.

GAME OFFICIAL FEES (REMINDER): (Please note $5.00 increase at MS/HS levels for 2014)

HS Game Official Fees

o    Varsity - $65 per official for 3 officials or $85 per official for 2 officials (home team pays all officials) per game

o    JV - $55 per official for 2 officials or $85 for one official  (home team pays both officials) per game

CHAPTER DUES/ASSIGNING FEES (REMINDER): (Please contact Chapter Officers for question regarding both.)

Chapter will send out invoices via email.

—  HS Boys League Participation Fee $200 Per Program
