The goal of LLA is to continue to grow into a successful and sustainable community organization that will provide an ongoing opportunity to develop young lacrosse players, to maintain their interest, and to provide fun and excitement at every level of development and competition.
Welcome to the Lakeville Lacrosse Association website. If you are looking to join the fastest growing youth team sport in America, then LLA is here to meet your needs.
If you are new to the LLA, or are an existing player, follow us on social media or here on our website for upcoming events. Take a look at our Boys homepage, Girls homepage, or the Clinics/Camps page to learn about the year-round offerings we have for the boys and girls of Lakeville. Here is what we have coming up:
Beginning in January 2022, USA Lacrosse youth field lacrosse rules will require that all field players in boys’ lacrosse must wear chest protection for commotio cordis that meet the NOCSAE performance standard ND200 in order to be deemed legal for play. All field player equipment meeting the NOCSAE performance standard must contain an SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) certification mark to be considered legal for play at all levels of boys’ youth lacrosse. Additional information about this new rule can be found at: https://www.usalacrosse.com/lacrosse-chest-protector-faq
All protective shoulder & chest pads meeting the new NOCSAE ND200 standard will feature a noticeably larger and more robust chest plate specifically designed to help shield the cardiac system from ball impact. Shoulder and chest pads meeting the new ND200 standard must have an SEI certification mark like the image below to be considered legal for play in 2022
ALL NEW SHOULDER & CHEST PADS THAT MEET THE NEW USA LACROSSE SAFETY STANDARDS WILL BE PROMINENTLY MARKED WITH A SEI CERTIFICATION MARK. DO NOT BUY ANY NEW OR USED SHOULDER & CHEST PADS THAT DO NOT CONTAIN THIS CERTIFICATION MARK AS THEY MAY NOT BE LEGAL FOR PLAY IN 2022!
It is recommended that all players requiring new shoulder & chest protectors consider purchasing new equipment well in advance of the start of the 2022 lacrosse season to avoid potential shortages in equipment that may occur as a result of this new equipment mandate. The links below are a few reputable online retailers where the new NOCSAE compliant equipment can be purchased.
