NOCSAE stands for the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment. The standards for lacrosse balls changed on January 1, 2014 to prevent concussions for all players. Before these changes went into effect, many balls being used in competitive play were actually safety hazards, as they were too heavy, too stiff, or had bad compression ratios. Now, all balls have to go through rigorous testing processes after production to meet NOCSAE standards for official play.
Choose from yellow for official women’s play, or white for official men’s play.
At about .3 lb with a 2.5” diameter, these balls are truly solid rubber, which allows for longer-lasting durability. Rather than being 2 pieces constructed together like cheaper balls, these balls are made from just 1 mold, which means they will not split in half after long periods of use. Additionally, balls that do have seams often change direction in the air. No seams on these balls means truer flight.
