This larger Substitution/Table area complements the new substitution rules by allowing more space for players to get on and off the field; and also creates better sight-lines for table personnel.

Tape on the throat area of the head makes it difficult or impossible to tell if a player has his glove on the throat area of the head, which is a deliberate attempt to deceive.

Lacrosse is similar only to football and ice hockey in the sense that intentional player-to-player contact is permitted NHFS.

Studies have been conducted showing lacrosse is only second to football in the rate of concussion and increasing by 17% annually.Trends in concussion incidence in high school sports: a prospective 11 year study. AM J Sports Med, 2011;39:958-963.

Understanding the mechanics leading to injury is important to prevention.Protecting defenseless players and penalizing violent collisions.

Hits to the head/neck continue to be a concern and this increased penalty will reinforce the need to eliminate these types of hits from the game. Rule 5, Section 4Hits To The Head or Neck:Jan 25 - 201423NHFS 2014 Rule ChangesOregon Lacrosse www.OHSLA.net2014 NFHS Rule Changes2014 NFHSRule ChangesThis revised rule specifies that no more than three players on a team can be in the penalty area at any time. If more than three players on a team are assessed penalty time to be served concurrently, the additional penalized team member(s) must wait in the bench area until the penalty time of one of the three players in the penalty area expires. This will eliminate the possibility of a team playing with fewer than seven players.

This change will discourage the defensive team from fouling to gain possession.
