US Lacrosse has announced the final rules revisions for the 2013 National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) boys’ lacrosse rules and the 2013 US Lacrosse boys’ youth lacrosse rules. The NFHS rules are written with the guidance of US Lacrosse and the youth rules are a product of US Lacrosse written as modifications to the NFHS rules with guidance and approval from the US Lacrosse Men’s Game Committee and the Men’s Game Rules Subcommittee.

“US Lacrosse has been a big proponent of sport safety for many years,” said Stephen Berger men’s game director at US Lacrosse. “With the addition of new youth-specific rules in 2012, we look to improve and evolve yearly so that we provide a platform for skill development as well as the guidelines for the safest, most enjoyable playing atmosphere possible.”

Both sets of rules revisions share a point of emphasis for the 2012-2013 season – hits and checks to the head and neck. The NFHS also emphasizes properly worn equipment, sideline sportsmanship and field dimensions while the US Lacrosse youth rules stress unnecessary roughness, cross checks and cross check holds.

The US Lacrosse boys’ youth lacrosse rules carries the overarching theme of player safety and sportsmanship throughout the 2013 revisions, calling special attention to the 2012 NFHS Rule 5 Section 4 rule, regarding checks involving the head and/or neck which has been further clarified for the 2012-2013 season.

The 2013 NFHS and US Lacrosse boys’ youth rules are in effect for fall 2012 competition.

Looking for some discussion on the following topic:
Is it right for HS coaches to force their players to play for the school team during the summer?
(Not talking about a top LI HS program)
Force in the sense if they do not will it hurt that player(s) from getting playing time?
Additionally if the school team is typically weak in their respective section and there are some good players who can play and make other summer travel teams (The top 6 or 7 teams on LI) that play at “A” level or even “B” level why would the HS coach preclude a player from getting looks at tournaments or recruiting type events as coaches at the next level typically will not come to watch a HS team that is typically weak in their section versus coming to watch a known LI summer elite type team.
My opinion is if a kid can make a summer elite type team and play at “A” level and get better with better players around him as well gain a different perspective of the game from other coaching why is that a bad thing?

Thoughts?

If a summer/ elite program provides a better opportunity for the player, that is where he should play - my 2cents...to the latest post - good discussion...

Will the HS program have a competitive summer program? if so, why stay with elite? unless your are so far involved, that the club means more than your HS. Which could be the case if you played with a club since 3/4th grade.

But "success" at the HS level can be a relative statement. What is competitive for me may not be good enough for others.
