US Lacrosse Changes Women's & Girls Lacrosse Rules For Mandated Goggles In 2020

Jan 14, 2020

US Lacrosse changed the safety requirements for women's and girls' lacrosse eyewear, starting in January of 2020. Eyewear must be SEI certification standards and meet the ASTM Standard F3077-2017 for the 2020 season.  The rule change was made to minimize or significantly reduce injury to the eye and adnexa due to impact and penetration of lacrosse balls.  However, the requirement for a physical SEI mark on the eyewear does not take effect until January, 2025 for high school.  Please note, goggles and headgear that were bought prior to 2018 may not meet the new 2020 standard.  All goggles and headwear sold by Lax.com are SEI certified and meet all ASTM standards. 

So if you are unsure if your goggles will meet the new standard you should consider purchasing a new pair.  The new 2020 rule will be published in book form later this fall by US Lacrosse.  To see if your eyewear is already approved you can check the list on the SEI website at www.seinet.org.

See our Pro's picks for women's & girls' lacrosse eyewear that are all SEI certified:

  1. STX Focus-S Ti Goggle - Combines the excellent fit of the 4Sight Focus goggle combined with a titanium cage.  This provides a 30% weight reduction.  Our Pro's love the minimal double bar design which improves peripheral vision.
  2.  

  3. STX 4Sight Plus S Goggle - A great price point, with a cage made of steel.  Great for a teen just starting or can be used by an adult. 
  4.  

  5. Under Armour Glory Goggle With Titanium Mask - Super light weight and great sight llines.   Can be used from advancing youth all the way up to college. 
  6.  

  7. Cascade LX Headgear - Mandated in Florida, this integrated headgear solution offers protection with a goggle cage.  Custom-fit system, lightweight, ventilated design makes it easy to increase the level of protection of the player on the field.
