SimplyLacrosse (SL) strongly supports US lacrosse in its efforts to unify and standardize Lacrosse rules especially in the interests of safety. If you are an organization that is not using the excellent guidelines established by US lacrosse then SL would like to encourage you to do so. The leadership that US lacrosse represents is very good, and the sport is best served to grow under unified and standardized rules and practices.
