IFWLA RULE 25 – THE CROSSE
Manufacturer’s Specifications
March 2008



RULE 25: THE CROSSE

A. All Field Crosses

The primary intent of the field crosse specifications is to ensure that the ball moves freely within all parts of the head and pocket so that the ball may be dislodged from a crosse without an excessively forceful check.

A crosse may be deemed illegal even though it meets all technical specifications, if in the opinion of the IFWLA its design is an obvious attempt to circumvent the intent of the rules.

A crosse that has been altered in such a way as to give an unfair advantage to a player is illegal.

A.1. The head of the field crosse shall be constructed of wood, plastic, fiberglass, nylon, leather, rubber, gut, and/or any other synthetic material.

A.2. The handle of the crosse shall be constructed of wood, metal alloy or other composite material, and must be nominally straight. An exception is that a handle may deviate up to, but not more than, 10 degrees from straight at the end of the shaft that is within 6.5 cm from the ball stop when the handle is attached to the head.

Guidance A.2: A *bent* handle may only be used with the heads that are specifically designed to accommodate them; *Bent* handles are head and manufacture specific. Heads designed for use with a *bent* handle will not be legal when mounted/attached to a straight handle. Heads designed for use with a straight handle will not be legal when attached to a bent handle.

A.2.a. Recessed metal screws with round heads shall be used to attach the head of a plastic/molded head crosse to the handle. The butt ends of all handles shall have an end cap, be taped or be sanded smooth, if wood.

A.2.b. The crosse shall not have sharp or protruding parts or edges and shall not be dangerous to players in any way.

A.3 The overall length of the crosse shall be 90cm/.9m minimum to 110cm/1.1m maximum. End caps are included when measuring the overall length of a crosse.

GuidanceA.3: Junior players who are under the age of 15 may use a crosse shorter than 90cm/.9m to allow the crosse to fit comfortably along the full length of the player’s arm.

A.3.a. To determine crosse compliance with the linear measurement specifications in Rule 25, all measurements shall be made to the nearest 0.01cm. The allowed deviation from the standard is 0.09cm.

Guidance A.3.a: If the maximum specified length for a particular measurement is 5.1cm, then a measurement of 5.19cm passes and 5.20cm does not.

If the minimum specified length for a particular measurement is 5.1cm, then a measurement of 5.01cm passes and 5.00cm does not.

25. THE CROSSE (A. continued)

A.4. The unstrung head and the handle of a field crosse must lie within a 5.1cm horizontal plane. (Diagram #11)

Guidance A.4: To determine the 5.1cm horizontal plane of the head, place the crosse on a table with the open pocket facing up so that the long axis of the handle is horizontal/parallel to the floor. Depending on the shape of the head, it may be necessary to support the handle so it is horizontal. With the handle horizontal and the lowest part of the head in contact with the table, no part of the head, as defined from the Ball Stop to the outside edge of the Scoop, shall be more than 5.1cm above the table.

A.4.a. At the Bridge or the Ball Stop, the top edge of the Bridge or Ball Stop must be at least 1.3cm above the centerline of the handle.

A.4.b. The top edge of the sidewall must not be more than 0.6cm below the centerline of the handle.

A.4.c. The top edge of the sidewall must not drop below the centerline of the handle prior to 5.7cm, as measured from the center of the Bridge or Ball Stop.

A.5. The overall length of the head, as measured from the center of the Bridge or Ball Stop (where the top, back edge of the stop pad meets the plastic) to the top outside edge of the scoop, shall be 25.4cm minimum to 30.5cm maximum. With the open pocket of the head facing up, all length measurements are taken along the centerline of the handle.

A.6. The overall outside width of the head of the crosse when measured at the widest point at the top of the head shall be 18cm minimum to 23cm maximum. With the open pocket of the head facing up, all width measurements are taken on a line that is perpendicular to the extension of the handle.

A.7. Sidewall stringing holes: From the bottom of the sidewall to the bottom of the stringing hole shall not be more than 1cm.

A.8. The entire crosse (strung head and handle) shall not weigh more than 567 g.

B. The Wooden Field Crosse (Diagram #12)

B.1. The head of a Wooden Field Crosse is defined to consist of four parts: The Bridge, the Wooden Sidewall, the Guard and the Scoop.

B.1.a. The Bridge is the woven ball stop of a wooden crosse. The height of the Bridge shall be 5.1cm maximum to 3.2cm minimum.

B.1.b. As measured from the center of the Bridge to the midpoint of the head, the actual height of the wooden sidewall shall be 4.5cm maximum to 3.2cm minimum. From the midpoint of the head, the height of the sidewall may taper toward the scoop.

B.1.c. The Guard is the soft woven wall of the head. The height of the Guard shall be 7cm maximum to 3.2cm minimum.
25. THE CROSSE (B. continued)

B.2. The head shall be triangular in shape. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head must continually increase as measured from the center of the Bridge to the widest point at the top of the head.

B.2.a. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 3.2cm from the center of the Bridge, shall be 6.7cm to 7.6cm and the outside width of the head shall be 7.6cm to 10.1cm.

B.2.b. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 5.1cm from the center of the Bridge, shall be 7cm minimum.

B.2.c. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 7.6cm from the center of the Bridge, shall be 8cm minimum.

B.2.d. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 10.2cm from the center of the Bridge, shall be 9cm minimum.

B.2.e. The inside width between the walls at the widest point at the top of the head shall be 15cm to 16cm.

C. Plastic/Molded Head Field Crosse (Diagram #14)
C.1. The head of the Plastic/Molded Head Field Crosse is defined to consist of four regions: the Throat, the Ball Stop, the Sidewall and the Scoop. (Diagram #12)

C.1.a. The Ball Stop is the center inside curved plastic wall of the head at the throat. The wall of the Ball Stop must not deviate by more than 5 degrees from perpendicular to the long axis of the handle. To determine crosse compliance with the angular measurement specifications in Rule 25, all measurements and calculations will be made to the nearest 0.01°. The allowed deviation from the standard is 0.44°.

Guidance C.1.a: If the maximum specified angle is 5°, then a particular measurement of 5.44° passes and 5.45° does not.

C.1.a.1. The height of the Ball Stop shall be 5.1cm maximum to 3.2cm minimum.

C.1.a.2. Stop pads shall not be more than 0.5cm thick. With the open pocket of the head facing up, the stop pad shall not vary in thickness from the top to the bottom of the Ball Stop. The stop pad must cover at least 60% of the Ball Stop, top to bottom. The overall length of the stop pad shall be 9.5cm maximum. The surface of the stop pad may not be textured, raised, recessed, or in any way, interfere with the free movement of the ball within the pocket.

Guidance C.1.a.2: To determine compliance, hold a crosse with the long axis of the stick vertical and place a ball in the pocket so that it rests against the ball stop pad. Neither end of the ball stop pad may extend beyond the horizontal midline of the ball. One-half the circumference of a ball is 10cm minimum. (Rule 4.A)


25. THE CROSSE (C. continued)

The stop pads may have slightly rounded corners resulting from the manufacturing process. For example, the stop pads may be compression molded.

The stop pad may have slightly raised/proud or inset lettering as long as the perceived goal is artistic design/advertising and is not to affect ball retention. For example, the name of the manufacturer and/or model may be included on the stop pad. A series of parallel ridges or
grooves is not acceptable.

C.1.b. The stop area ends and the sidewall begins at 3.4cm as measured from the center of the Ball Stop. The sidewall ends and the scoop area begins at the widest point at the top of the head. (Rule 25.C.2.e)

C.1.b.1 From the beginning of the sidewall at 3.4cm to the midpoint of the head, as measured from the center of the Ball Stop to the top of the Scoop, the actual height of the sidewalls shall be 4.5cm maximum 2.8cm minimum. From the midpoint of the head, the height of the sidewalls may taper toward the scoop.

C.1.b.2. There may be no protrusions or outcroppings on the inside surface of the sidewalls. The sidewalls may not be lined with any additional material.

Guidance C.1.b.2: While no outcroppings or protrusions of any kind are allowed on the sidewalls of a crosse, outcroppings are allowed on the scoop and the ball stop areas as long as,
a. *All* other IFWLA crosses dimensional and shape requirements are met.
b. The outcroppings have only aesthetic function and do not affect the
free movement of the ball in the pocket.

C.2. The head of the crosse shall be triangular in concept. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head must continually increase as measured from the center of the Ball Stop to the widest point at the top of the head. (Diagrams #13)

C.2.a. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 3.2cm from the center of Ball Stop, shall be 6.7cm minimum to 8.0cm maximum. The radius of the ball is 3.2cm.

C.2.b. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 5.1cm from the center of the Ball Stop, shall be 7cm minimum.

C.2.c. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 7.6cm from the center of the Ball Stop, shall be 8cm minimum.

C.2.d. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head, as measured 10.2cm from the center of the Ball Stop, shall be 9cm minimum.

C.2.e. The inside width between the walls at the widest point at the top of the head shall be 16 cm minimum.



25. THE CROSSE (C. continued)

Guidance C.2: The inside width between the sidewalls is measured by determining the minimum
distance between projections of the sidewalls onto a horizontal plane. This can be performed by measuring the outside distance between two vertical rods.

C.3. At all points along the sidewall, the following formula shall be used to determine the maximum slant / angle that the sidewalls of the head may deviate from vertical. (Diagram #15)

C.3.a. With the open pocket of the head facing up, measure the vertical height of the sidewall at any point. Then find the difference in the width between the top and the bottom edges of the sidewalls at that point.

C.3.b. At all points, the difference between the top and bottom widths, divided by the vertical height of
the sidewall, must be less than or equal to 0.50.

D. The pockets of all Wooden or Plastic/Molded Field Crosses:

D.1. The pocket of all field crosses shall be strung with 4 or 5 longitudinal leather or synthetic thongs and 8 to 12 stitches of cross lacing. MESH POCKETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

Guidance D.1: When plastic “zip-ties” are used to attach pocket nylon to thongs, all sharp edges must be sanded/filed smooth. (Rule 25.A.2.b)

D.1.a. Longitudinal thongs shall be 0.6cm to 1.0cm wide. Thongs must not touch and ‘nominally’
must be evenly spaced along the length / across the width of the head. The loose ends of the thongs may not be woven back up through the pocket of the crosse and during play must be secured to the handle of the crosse. (Diagram #12)

Guidance D.1.a: Round nylon cord may be used for thongs in crosses that are designed for use by junior players under the age of 15, or by players in areas where lacrosse is developing.

D.1.b. Cross-lacing in a traditionally strung pocket is defined as 8-12 knots/stitches, where two pocket nylon laces intertwine at a common place on a thong and evenly spaced (not bunched) diamonds. (A ‘diamond’ is the shape formed between two longitudinal knots on a thong and two horizontal knots).

D.1.c. Cross-lacing in a pre-manufactured detachable pocket is defined as 8-12 evenly spaced pocket nylon laces that are sewn or traditionally woven between evenly spaced longitudinal thongs. (See Rule 25.D.1.a) Extra lengths of sidewall nylon ties must be cut to 4cm maximum.

D1.d. The nominal diameter of the shooting/throw string nylon cord and sidewall nylon cord shall
be 0.3cm maximum. The nominal diameter of pocket nylon must be less than 0.3cm.

D.1.d.1. Field crosses shall have no more than two separate shooting/throw strings. Shooting/throw strings shall not be rolled more than twice between each thong. Flat hockey/boot laces may
not be used as shooting/throw strings.


25. THE CROSSE (D. continued)

D.1.d.2. Both shooting/throw strings must be attached in the upper third of the head. OR, The bottom shooting/throw string may be an inverted “U” in shape and must be attached in the upper one-half of the head, as measured from the top outside edge of the scoop. (Diagram #16)

D.1.e All components of the pocket shall be integral, either by tying or by stitching. In no case shall components be slid over the shooting/throw strings, cross lacings or thongs. This rule prohibits the use of beads, tubing or similar items on any part of the pocket.

D.2. The combined height of the sidewall and the depth of the pocket containing the ball must be less than 6.4cm, the diameter of the ball. The top of a ball, when placed into the pocket of a horizontally held crosse, must be visible and remain above the top of the entire wooden or plastic sidewall after reasonable force with one hand has been applied to and released from the ball.

D.3. The ball must move freely within all parts of the head/pocket both laterally and along its full length.

D.3.a. The ball must not become wedged between the walls, under the Guard or under the Bridge of a Wooden Crosse, or in the Ball Stop or under the walls of a Plastic/Molded Head Crosse. The ball must easily fall out of the pocket of the crosse when the crosse is turned upside down.

Guidance D.3: The following are examples that, either alone or in combination, might cause
a lack of free ball movement in the head/pocket: shooting/throw strings that are not interwoven with the cross lacings and thongs and allowed to sit on top of these other stringing areas; thongs that are raised above the plane of the pocket; and thongs made from a sticky/tacky substance or this type of substance added to the thongs.

D.4. At any time during play, an Umpire may take time-out to inspect a field crosse or any player
on the field may request that an Umpire inspect an opponent’s crosse.

If the ball becomes lodged in a field player’s crosse during play, the crosse no longer meets specifications. The umpire shall take time-out to remove the illegal crosse to the Scorer’s/Timer’s table. To resume play, the opponent nearest to the ball shall be awarded a Minor Foul free Position. (Rules 19.A.12, 19.A.13 & 19.A.14)

E. Goalkeeper’s Crosse

E.1. The crosse shall be constructed of wood, plastic, fiberglass, nylon, leather, rubber, gut,
and/or any other synthetic material.

E.2. The handle of the crosse shall be straight and may be constructed of wood, metal alloy
or other composite material.

E.2.a. Recessed metal screws with rounded heads shall be used to attach the head of a
plastic/molded head goalkeeper’s crosse to the handle. The butt ends of all handles
shall have an end cap, be taped or be sanded smooth, if wood.

25. THE CROSSE (E. continued)

E.2.b. The crosse shall not have sharp or protruding parts or edges and shall not be dangerous to players in any way.

E.3. The overall length of the crosse shall be 90cm/.9m minimum to 135cm/1.35m maximum.
End caps are included when measuring the overall length of the crosse.

E.3.a. To determine crosse compliance with linear measurement specifications, all measurements
shall be made to the nearest 0.01cm. The allowed deviation from the standard is 0.09cm.
(Rule 25.A.3.a.)

E.4. The unstrung head and the handle of a goalkeeper’s crosse shall lie within a 7.6cm horizontal
plane. (To determine the horizontal plane see Rule 25.A.4. Guidance)

E.4.a. No part of the head shall pass beyond a plane 2.5cm above the centerline of the handle and/or
5.1cm below the centerline of the handle.

E.4.b. The top edge of the sidewall shall not be more than 0.6cm below the centerline of the handle.

E.5. The head shall have a maximum length of 42cm. The length of the head is measured from the center of the Bridge or Ball Stop (where the top back edge of the stop pad meets the plastic) to the top outside edge of the scoop. With the open pocket of the head facing up, all length measurements are taken along the centerline of the handle.

E.6. The height of the Bridge or Ball Stop of a Goalkeeper’s crosse shall be 5.4cm maximum to 3.2cm minimum. The Bridge or plastic wall of the Ball Stop must not deviate by more than 10 degrees
from perpendicular to the long axis of the handle.

E.7. As measured 3.4cm from the top centre of the Bridge or the Ball Stop, the sidewall begins. The
actual height of the wooden sidewall of a wooden crosse and the plastic sidewalls of a plastic/molded head crosse shall be 5.1cm maximum to 2.54cm minimum. The sidewalls end at the widest point at the top of the head.

E.7.a. The height of the woven wall of a Wooden Goalkeeper’s crosse shall be 7cm maximum.

E.8. The entire head of the crosse shall be triangular in concept. The inside width between the sidewalls of the head must continually increase from the center of the Bridge or Ball Stop to
the widest point at the top of the head. With the open pocket of the head facing up, all width measurements are taken between the plastic or woven and wooden sidewalls on a line that is perpendicular to the centerline of the handle. (Rule 25.C.2. Guidance)

E.8.a. When measured 5.1cm from the center top edge of the Ball Stop, the inside width between the
sidewalls of a plastic/molded head crosse shall be 13cm to 16.5cm. The maximum outside width
of the head shall be 19.5cm.

E.8.b. When measured 10.2cm from the center top edge of the Ball Stop, the inside width between the
sidewalls of a plastic/molded head crosse shall be 18.5cm to 22cm. The maximum outside width
of the head shall be 26cm.
25. THE CROSSE (E. continued)

E.8.c. When measured 15.3cm from the center top edge of the Ball Stop the inside width between the
sidewalls of a plastic/molded head crosse shall be 23cm to 26cm. The maximum outside width of
the head shall be 30cm.

E.8.d. At the widest point of the head, the inside width between the sidewalls of a plastic/molded head
crosse shall be 28.5cm to 30.5cm. The maximum outside width of the head shall be 33cm.

E.9. The pocket of the crosse may be strung traditionally with 6 or 7 longitudinal leather or synthetic
thongs and 8 to 12 stitches of cross-lacing (See Rule 25.D.1.) or MAY BE MESH.

E.9.a. The Goalkeeper’s crosse may have more than two shooting/throw strings. Flat hockey/boot
laces or nylon cord may be used as shooting / throw strings. There are no restrictions regarding
the design or placement of shooting/throw strings in the pocket of the crosse.

E.10. The depth of the pocket, containing the ball, may be unlimited except that the ball must move freely within all parts of the head and the pocket both laterally and along its full length. When the crosse with the ball in it is held at eye level with the long axis of the stick vertical to the ground, more than half of the ball must be visible / seen above the Ball Stop.

E.11. The entire crosse (strung head and handle) shall not weigh more than 773g.

Guidance E: The intent of the rules governing the head design of a Goalkeeper’s crosse is to disallow crosses where excessive widths of plastic added to the sidewalls both increase the surface area of the head and increase the potential for injury to players.

At all levels of play, a Goalkeeper may use a wooden or plastic/molded head Goalkeeper’s crosse that has a smaller head as long as its design is not an obvious attempt to circumvent the intent of the rules. Regardless, if a Goalkeeper chooses to play with a Field Crosse or a larger Goalkeeper’s crosse, she must always abide by Rule 17.

NOTE: All IFWLA approved crosses are evaluated in a laboratory for compliance to written measurement and pocket design standards. The test facility will accept pre-production models (also known as SLA’s or rapid proto-types) for evaluation; however, only preliminary approval will be granted if the pre-production model meets all specifications. Final approval will be contingent on a final product model being submitted to the Laboratory for testing and meeting all specifications.
Once the test facility has determined that a crosse meets all the specifications in Rule 25, a report will be sent to the IFWLA and the stick will be listed on the IFWLA web site as immediately approved for international play.

The IFWLA shall not be liable for any consequence deriving from the choice of equipment used by players nor any defects it may have. Players shall not alter their equipment to gain advantage.

Specifications for all equipment are reviewed annually and modified periodically by the IFWLA Rules and Umpiring Committee. The IFWLA will endeavor, when possible, to provide advance notification of changes to equipment specifications to the manufacturers of lacrosse equipment known to the IFWLA. However, the IFWLA reserves the right to change any equipment specifications at any time, if in its sole discretion the IFWLA deems the changes to be in the best interest of the sport of women’s lacrosse.

Nope - there's a complete list at http://www.womenslacrosse.org/EQUIPMENT.shtml which is updated as new sticks are approved. It will be the huges offset that prevents it from being legal.

On a side note, there was an interesting discussion in Prague about shafts with holes in them, such as the on shown in the video. Obvious advantage is that they reduce weight, however there would be pretty bad injuries if a player got their finger caught in one of the holes.

Please?

Postby WhiteCloud Mon Oct 26, 2009 12:36 pm

Are you allowed to put tennis grip all the way down a goalie stick? (The stick remains under 777g)

There is no rule against it, but I was wondering.

773g :wink:

And yes, it is allowed. Just remember though it will slow your hand movement down.

STX Tilt and 10 degree shafts

Postby Raven Wed Dec 16, 2009 8:48 am

Do you know will these be legal to use? It says that the head meets the IFWLA specifications but it was released this autumn and it's not on the list of approved sticks that was updated in May.
