What's Hot on SportsFive.NET

2014The 2014 is long-gone and summer "recruiting tournaments" have been concluded. Some players have made their commitments and more will make decisions as the fall progresses.

During the summer, the National Federation Rules Committee held their annual meetings and came up with some new rule changes for the 2015 season. The New York State Lacrosse Committees will need to ratify the changes (and they normally do so) before we get to March 2015. It was a "quiet year" for the committee with the most "dramatic", perhaps relating to the string of sticks. That rule may be delayed for a while. Another rules change allows a restart in the defensive end to be inside the goals area instead of in the "ally" outside of the goal area.

In late November of 2014 the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) announced that two helmets currently in the field do not meet required NOCSAE standards. The two helmets are the Cascade Model R and the Warrior Regulator. There is hope that the issues will be corrected before the season, but until that happens, the helmets are not allowed for Federation games. More information is available here.

For those still living the glory days of last season, a great deal of information can be found in the 2014 wrap up story.
