Welcome to Edina Lacrosse Association

NEW BOYS CHEST PAD RULES IN 2021 AND 2022

To protect against Commotio Cordis*, USA Lacrosse has implemented new rules that boys chest and shoulder pads must meet NOCSAE certification.  These pads have been approved by NOCSAE.  Boys goalies must use the certified chest pads as of 1/1/2021.  Other boys players must use the certified shoulder/chest pads as of 1/1/2022.
