While the US governing body of the sport, USA Lacrosse, only requires protective headgear with integrated Type III goggles to protect from facial and eye injuries, each state and locality can add to the requirements.
Specific school districts can add requirements. That means a school that requires full helmets for its girls might play a school that only requires goggles for its girls.
The Difference Between Men’s and Women’s Headgear
In lacrosse, the headgear requirements differ between men's and women's sports. Men's lacrosse is full-contact and requires helmets, while women's lacrosse, which is non-contact, allows the option of wearing soft-shelled helmets or goggles for eye protection.
Female lacrosse goalies may wear the same headgear as male goalies. The difference reflects the level of physical contact allowed and the aim to protect players while preserving the sport's finesse.
