US Lacrosse Approves Box Lacrosse Rules!
by posted 10/17/2017

Something we have been hoping for has occured!  US Lacrosse has endorsed Box Lacrosse and established approved rules and now covers insurance for Box Lacrosse players, coaches and officials!

US Lacrosse Announces Approved Rules for Box Lacrosse https://shar.es/1PWuCV via @uslacrosse

US Lacrosse today announced a new set of standardized rules to govern indoor box lacrosse for both men and women at all levels of play from ages 6U and above. These approved rules, which are effective immediately, are the result of a collaborative effort during which time US Lacrosse gathered input from many other national and international box lacrosse organizations and stakeholders.

US Lacrosse insurance coverage for members now extends to participation in box lacrosse played under rule sets approved by US Lacrosse. Leagues, players, coaches, and officials are covered by this member insurance at no additional charge. Box lacrosse leagues may contact their US Lacrosse regional manager for additional details.

“The development of US Lacrosse rules for domestic box play is a natural extension of our organization's evolving and increased commitment to the indoor game,” said Steve Stenersen, president and CEO of US Lacrosse. “In recent years, we’ve increased our commitment to our U.S. Indoor Team, advocated for the value of small-sided play through our Lacrosse Athlete Development Model, and forged stronger relationships with a number of regional and national box lacrosse organizations. Delivering a set of rules intended to standardize box play on a national scale, with corresponding member insurance coverage, is a logical expansion of our member value proposition.”

US Lacrosse engaged multiple partners in the development of the new rules. A task force was established to survey existing organizations that promote box lacrosse and to identify the major rule sets currently in existence. These include rules that govern play for the National Lacrosse League (NLL), Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL), Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA), US Box Lacrosse Association (USBOXLA), and American Indoor Lacrosse Association (AILA), among others.

Southside Lacrosse League - Assumption of HRLAX Youth Leagues
by posted 10/08/2017

Hampton Roads Lacrosse League (HRLax) and Coastal Sports Management/Southside Lacrosse League (SSLL) Joint Announcement

 

V3 Select Lacrosse Families,

 

     As you know, Hampton Roads Lacrosse (HRLax) published an RFP in August requesting proposals from responsible parties to assume all or part of league management of HRLax Boys and Girls Youth and High School Programs.  With the current and prospective growth of lacrosse in Hampton Roads, the HRLax Board of Directors recognized the need for a professional organization to ensure quality in player development, coach training, and scheduling.

 

     HRLax received proposals and heard presentations from several local and well known national organizations and had the opportunity to ask detailed questions during an extensive review of proposals.  The League held several meetings and discussions to review the merits and fit of each proposal in order to select the most qualified party.

 

     We are pleased to announce that the HRLax Board of Directors voted to accept the proposal submitted by Coastal Sports Management / Southside Lacrosse League (SSLL) to assume the operation and management of the boys and girls youth leagues, effective immediately.  HRLax will continue to operate and manage the spring boys and girls High School Leagues.

 

     Jess Stevenson, President of HRLax said, "After many years of successful league operations and countless hours of volunteering by our staff and the many selfless lacrosse enthusiasts before us, we are excited to partner with a professional organization to deliver a better and more focused youth lacrosse experience.   We expect both leagues, Southside Lacrosse League Youth and HRLax High School, to place a premium on "local" play on Southside and Peninsula, to accelerate the growth of the game and better support our efforts towards VHSL status in all cities in Hampton Roads."

 

     HRLax boys and girls youth lacrosse players in 8th grade and below and qualified coaches on both the Southside and the Peninsula will be integrated into the SSLL structure. HRLax will discontinue all youth programs in the Hampton Roads region in order to focus solely on the boys and girls spring high school leagues.

 

     SSLL will continue to align youth teams into current high school team zones in order to establish more high school team affinity. This approach is intended to facilitate the development of a “feeder” system for experienced lacrosse players into each high school team while engaging the respective Boosters Clubs and high school coaches in the process.  The current HRLax Boys and Girls Youth League Commissioners, Melissa Strickland and Catherine Hardy, will continue in those roles with SSLL.

 

     Frank Logan, Founder of Coastal Sports Management and SSLL, said, “Over the last 12 years I have enjoyed working with the numerous dedicated people who maintain a shared passion for the game of lacrosse and have worked tirelessly to enable more players and families to participate in the sport.  This new structure is another positive step in making the sport more accessible and inclusive. I’m looking forward to continuing the effort to grow the game within the US Lacrosse “Athlete Development Model“ (LADM) framework.

 

     One of the mutual goals of HRLax and SSLL is to gain Varsity High School League (VHSL) status for lacrosse in our public schools.  Both organizations believe that this new approach will be a strong positive step in that direction.  SSLL and HRLax plan to collaborate in an effort to gain VHSL status and grow lacrosse in Hampton Roads.

 

     Both organizations look forward to a smooth transition for Spring 2018 teams and games and will be providing detailed information in the weeks ahead.

 

Thank You,  

Frank Logan, Founder, V3 Lacrosse & Southside Lacrosse League

NCAA Proposed Recruiting Rules Changes
by posted 01/05/2013


For all players that hope to get a shot at playing NCAA Division I lacrosse there are some some important recommended rule changes coming up for a vote on January 19th.

The most significant is that NCAA program will be allowed to make initial contact on July 1st following a players sophomore year - a full year earlier.  

A number of related rules have been relaxed.  I would urge all players / families in this zone (8th-10th graders) to attend the clinic that HRSC is putting on to get the latest info...

The details of this NCAA announcement are HERE  - 

  • 13-2, which will allow off-campus contact with recruits beginning the first day of junior year in high school and communication with recruits on or after July 1 after the completion of the recruit’s sophomore year in high school.
  • 13-3, which would eliminate restrictions on methods and modes of communication
  • 13-5-A, which would eliminate restrictions on sending printed recruiting materials to recruits.
