2012 NFHS Boys’ Rules Clarifications

US Lacrosse has received two sets of clarifications and corrections to the rules for high school boys’ lacrosse in 2012 from the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).

These rules clarifications provide clarity around Rule 7-1-1d, regarding a player releasing from a penalty during a face-off; Rule 1.6.1, regarding equipment (stick) checks and taped ends; and Rule 4-15, regarding bringing the ball into the attack area.

Officials are encouraged to review these rule clarifications carefully.
