Difference between Men's and Women's Lacrosse Balls
The difference between a Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Ball is the color and not the function, performance, size, or grip of the lacrosse ball. Women’s and Girls Lacrosse uses Yellow Lacrosse Balls at all levels while Men’s Lacrosse varies depending on the level of play. The color of the lacrosse ball only changes the visibility of the lacrosse ball and nothing else.
Men's and Boy's Lacrosse Ball
At the Youth, Middle School, High School, and Collegiate Level; Lacrosse Balls are almost always white for boy's lacrosse. The exception to using a white lacrosse ball during a boy's lacrosse game is when the ball won't be seen as easily. Depending on what's available to the lacrosse coach, they will typically use an Orange Lacrosse Ball, Yellow Lacrosse Ball, Green Lacrosse Ball, or Pink Lacrosse Ball to help players see the ball. Boy's lacrosse teams will only not use a white lacrosse ball for a game when the game is inside or affected by snow that makes it difficult to see the lacrosse ball.
NLL Lacrosse Ball
The National Lacrosse League uses a Premium White Lacrosse Ball made by Signature Lacrosse. This Premium lacrosse ball from Signature Lacrosse is also the official lacrosse ball for FIL World Lacrosse Championship.
Major League Lacrosse Ball
The MLL uses an Orange Lacrosse Ball and previously had an added grip to the lacrosse ball. The official lacrosse ball of the MLL is produced by Brine.
Premier Lacrosse League Lacrosse Ball
The PLL uses a Lime Green Lacrosse Ball which is believed to be easier to see on TV. The Professional Lacrosse Leagues move to a green ball was influenced by the same research that directed the International Federation of Tennis to switch to a green tennis ball in 1972 because it was easier to see for television viewers.
