New Age Restrictions for the NJJLL in 2017

Parent information about the new lacrosse stick rules

Parents & Coaches,


For 2016 both the NFHS (High School) rules and the US Lacrosse Youth Rules have changed as it relates to lacrosse sticks. 


These changes can make it very confusing for parents so we will attempt to clarify the new rules. 


  • It has been stated in the rules for the past few years that starting in 2016 there will be a change in what is allowed as far as shooting strings.
    • All shooting strings must be within 4” from the top of the stick. What this means is that pretty much all “U” and “V” type pockets are now illegal for High School Players. THE NJJLL IS NOT ENFORCING THIS RULE THIS YEAR but it may be enforced in 2017.
  • The NFHS rules also indicate that starting in 2018 all stick heads must conform to a new standard. Basically making most youth lacrosse sticks now illegal in 2018. We highly recommend that if you replace a new stick going forward you make sure it conforms to the new standard. Starting in 2018 all sticks will need to be what is currently the NCAA standard.
  • All normal rules about stick lengths and pocket depths still apply, click here to see the 2016 NJJLL-US Lacrosse Playing Rules for more information.

These rule changes do not apply to goalie sticks
