US Lacrosse has changed the requirements for goggles for the 2017 season.
Effective January 1, 2017, girls eyewear must meet ASTM Standard 3077 to be deemed legal for play. Previously, eyewear that met either the ASTM Standard 803 or 3077 have been allowed. Please see the link below for a list of eyewear that meets the current standard:
WHY was this change implemented? The eyewear standard change was announced several years ago and has been in the rulebook for a couple years to help phase in the implementation. It is not uncommon for ASTM to update its standards after several years. The long implementation is common for equipment changes and something US Lacrosse works with the NFHS to phase in in order to not create a budget impact.
In this particular instance, the 3077 standard reflects two changes. One, the 803 standard was not sport specific so for example, a consumer could mistakenly get eyewear that met 803 but not for lacrosse. Secondly, the testing protocol was changed specific to our sport and arguably to better test for the sport and safe play. Most manufacturers have taken their current products and had them retested to the standard. US Lacrosse recommends that you reach out to the specific manufacturer of your goggles if your model is not listed and see if they have plans to retest.

Bingham Lacrosse is known for how well they look on the field. Here are a few mandatory uniform guidelines. (Players, MAKE SURE THIS NOTE GETS TO YOUR PARENTS.)
US Lacrosse rule is that all undergarments, i.e. Under Armour-type clothing which is worn when cold, must be of the the same color among all the players. Bingham elects to wear white. Therefore, all leggings and long sleeves must be white with no wording showing through. (If it’s a small Nike-type logo, that’s ok, just nothing obnoxious that would take away from the look of the uniform.) You can buy these undergarments on the Bingham clothing order website (through Tribal Lacrosse) or you may find some on your own.
Sports bras MUST be worn. No bra straps are to be showing outside of the razorback style of the uniform. Sports bras are to be a solid color, no crazy color, to take away from the look of the uniform.
Since it is VERY difficult to size uniforms, due to batching changes by the manufacturer, sometimes they are large (hopefully never too small). Alterations are allowed at your cost as long as it doesn’t compromise the look of the uniform. However, a warning in doing this is that this uniform should last you all years of your high school lacrosse experience, in case you haven’t finished growing yet.
Take care of this uniform. Wash on gentle cycle and hang dry. It needs to last. If you lose your uniform, you cannot get a new one until next year. Without a uniform, you cannot play on the field.
As uniforms in the industry get discontinued, we have to adjust to find different ones based on comparable appearance. If your teammate has a slightly different one than you, don’t worry. On the field you will look the same.
