Athletes Unlimited to experiment with rules changes, more NLL news.

Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1. Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse is testing possible rule changes.

At this week’s exhibition at the IWLCA Presidents Cup, the league is using the opportunity to explore achieving league goals of emphasizing safety, cleaning up the game visually, prioritizing elite skills and quality of play, and improving the flow of the game.

You can see the rule changes in the post below.

2. The NLL is returning to Québec.

The NLL UnBOXed Series marquee event game will featured the Toronto Rock and New York Riptide playing on Friday, February 16, 2024, at the Place Bell in Laval, Québec.
