Beginning in 2022, all field players in the boys’/men’s game must have shoulder pads or protectors that meet the NOCSAE performance standard.

USA Lacrosse encourages field players of all ages to begin using protection as soon as they can, rather than waiting for the 2022 mandate. https://www.usalacrosse.com/lacrosse-chest-protector-faq
