The points of emphasis for the 2013-2014 season are strict enforcement of rules governing illegal: body contact, obstruction of free space to goal, repetitive fouls, and stick contact and cross checking.
Major rule changes for the 2013-2014 season at all levels of play include:
decreasing the number of players from each team on the draw circle from five to three;
increasing penalty time for a red card from two minutes to four;
disallowing additional facial protection to be worn other than ASTM International-approved goggles and mouth guard. ASTM International Women’s Lacrosse approved goggles have been the standard since the rule was created in 2004.
