International Rules

As the international governing body for lacrosse, World Lacrosse is responsible for the rules of  Men’s and Women’s (10 a-side), Men’s Indoor Lacrosse and the new small-sided game (6 a-side).  Additionally, World Lacrosse also endorses rules developed for Wheelchair and Mixed Lacrosse.

The Rules for each of the approved games are overseen by separate Rules Sub-Committees for each, with the World Lacrosse Chair of Rules having oversight of the change process.  Member nations are invited to propose rule changes for consideration.  Rule Change requests can be made by completing the Rule Change Form and send to World Lacrosse.
