Women's Rules

The National Collegiate Athletic Association writes the rules for collegiate varsity women’s lacrosse, while US Lacrosse writes the rules for collegiate non-varsity (or club) and post-collegiate women’s lacrosse. The organizations work together frequently on rule development and player safety.
