shoulder pads

Postby number44 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 11:27 pm

last year a couple people along with me got in trouble for our shoulder pads not covering our shoulders fully. We had cut off the caps to make ourselves more mobile. What is the ruling on shoulder pads in high school lacrosee?

No modifications of any kind can be made to any protective gear. You were penalized because you had cut off the caps thus altering said padding not necessarily because the pad didn't cover the entire shoulder.

As far as I know manufacturers don't even make shoulder pads that don't cover the entirity of the shoulder. The specific rule is that there may be no tampering with the pads, however, it is at the referees disgression as to whether or not it is safe to play in shoulder pads that do not protect the shoulder.
