  • Limited/reduced player contact compared to other sports.  Unlike basketball, soccer, and all football.
  • All players wear gloves.  Unlike basketball, soccer, and all football.
  • All players handle the ball with a stick/net.  (No ball or equipment handled commonly.)  Unlike basketball, soccer, baseball, and all football.

Additional precautions with Rattlers lacrosse making it even safer for players and coaches.

  • All players wear full helmet face shields.  Unlike all other sports.
  • All coaches wear masks, face shields, or gaiters with filters during practice and games.  Depends on other clubs...most do not appear to be doing this consistently.
  • All players required to wear masks/gaiters during the season at practices and games when not wearing their helmet (to and from the field).  Depends on other sports organizations' policies.
