The following is an additional clarification to the 2012 NFHS Boys Lacrosse Rules Book:
The 2012 revision to rule 1-7-3 is stated as follows:
All hollow crosse handles must have their open end covered with a plastic or rubber end cap manufactured for a lacrosse stick.
When the rules committee adopted that language, it was believed that plastic and rubber were the only two materials used in the production of lacrosse end caps. It has since been determined that end caps are manufactured for use on a hollow stick using wood. As a result, the rule is further revised for the 2012 season as follows:
All hollow crosse handles must have their open end covered with an end cap manufactured for a lacrosse stick.

The NFHS put together a rules interpretation video for all lacrosse officials, coaches, and players. This video was shown during the last day of training to all of the GLOA officials who were present. If you were unable to view the video during training please make time to watch it. It clearly explains all of the new rules for 2011 with examples of what should and should not be called.
As always if you do have a question about the rules please contact Ryan Rowe, at email@example.com.
Unfortunately, uploading restrictions prevent us from showing the video directly on galaxref.com. To view the video please visit this link: http://vimeo.com/19718486
