The West Bay Lacrosse League is a town-based lacrosse league founded on the principle that playing where you live grows the game. As such, the league requires that players and families play for the club that their home address falls in. However, if a player was with the Firehawks in Spring ‘20 or ‘21, that player can remain with the Firehawks. 

 

The Firehawks LC program includes players in San Carlos, Redwood City, Atherton, Palo Alto, Woodside, Portola Valley, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Menlo Park and Mountain View.

Reminder: New 2022 Boys Shoulder Pad Rules

 

Please be advised that beginning on January 1, 2022 all boys lacrosse players are required to wear shoulder pads that meet the National Operating Committee on Standard for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE). 

 

This new equipment update is intended to make the sport safer for the players. Product compliance with ND200 reduces impact forces and thus the risk of commotio cordis (cardiac arrest due to a blow to the heart area).

 

For more information on the new shoulder pad requirements, please click here: https://www.usalacrosse.com/lacrosse-chest-protector-faq

 

Please check out our local lacrosse stores, as they should be well stocked with compliant shoulder pads for the upcoming season.
