New for this year

The measurements for the crosse shall include:

Measurement from throat (inches) Minimum distance between narrowest point of head (inches)
1.25 3 (all measurements)
3.0 3 (all measurements)
5.0 3.5 to 4 on front; 3.5 on back
Widest point 6 (all measurements)

NOTE: From the 1.25-inch measurement to the widest point of the crosse, the distance between the sidewalls of the crosse must be at least 3 inches.

Rationale: The committee defined crosse dimensions and specifications at different locations to address issues with the ball being stuck in the crosse. This change in equipment will beginning in 2018 to allow for phased implementation.
