USA Lacrosse Announces First Boys' Club Age Verification Events By USA Lacrosse Staff

Discussions are underway with more event operators and this list will grow in the coming weeks.

For the 2023-24 club year, in graduation years 2029 and younger, the NLF has chosen to implement a 15-month timeframe (June 1 birthdate through August 31 of the following year) for its age groupings. The NLF clubs will continue using graduation years as the team names, but all players will fit within the 15-month groupings. This will help minimize team roster disruptions and to incentivize classmates playing together.

USA Lacrosse has had a proven age verification system in place since 2017 used for other organizations. As a U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee Recognized Sports Organization, USA Lacrosse brings credibility and neutrality to the process. The NLF’s leadership in endorsing and implementing age verification for its events will drive even greater adoption of player segmentation by age throughout all levels of youth lacrosse.

At the high school level, the NLF will continue to group players by graduation year to assist with the college recruiting process. High-school aged NLF players and tournament participants will be required to maintain an active USA Lacrosse membership, but they will not be required to go through the age verification process.
