Rules

US Lacrosse staff members and volunteers play a critical role in developing the rules for all levels of play. The rules are written to ensure fair and safe playing conditions for all participants.

Men's Rules

The National Collegiate Athletic Association writes the rules for collegiate varsity men’s lacrosse, and those rules are used by the non-varsity Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association. US Lacrosse and the NCAA work together frequently on rule development and player safety. US Lacrosse writes the rules for post-collegiate men’s lacrosse.
