Goggles / Headgear
All field players must properly wear eye protection that meets ASTM standard F3077 for women's adult/youth lacrosse for the appropriate level of play.
US Lacrosse women's rules mandate the use of protective eyewear. The purpose of the rule is to acknowledge that while women's lacrosse is a relatively safe sport, the use of protective eyewear prevents the rare but catastrophic eye injury. Initially introduced in 2005, eyewear equipment has been highly effective in safeguarding players at all levels of play.
Please note that beginning January 1, 2017, only the new standard, ASTM 3077, is regarded as legal for play and all eyewear equipment will have to meet this standard.
Please visit the following website for an approved list of goggles.
US Lacrosse women's rules allow for the optional use of headgear if it meets ASTM standard F3137. The purpose of this allowance is to acknowledge that while women's lacrosse is a relatively safe sport, the use of protective headgear is desired by some individuals.
