Age & Eligibility Guidelines – South Beach Storm Lacrosse
US Lacrosse establishes eligibility guidelines in order to promote the game of lacrosse among the youth of America in a safe and sportsmanlike environment. To best achieve this goal, US Lacrosse believes that leagues, associations, and other organizers of youth lacrosse should seek to provide playing opportunities that, as much as possible, establish a “level playing field” among players of similar age, size, and ability.
Age Grouping Quick Reference Table
|Born on or after 9/1/||U14|
|Born on or after 9/1/||U12|
|Born on or after 9/1/||U10|
|Born on or after 9/1/||U8|
Age and Eligibility Guidelines are not considered “game-day rules” and are not enforced as game-day rules by officials. Exceptions to age divisions cannot be made on game day and all coaches must adhere to classifications as determined by their league or association.
League and Association Play
Leagues and associations should organize competition by age, and consider physical, cognitive, and emotional maturity when grouping players. For leagues or associations in which some local programs choose to organize their teams by grade, those teams should play in the age division determined by the oldest player on their roster. Teams organized by single birth year or single grade are suggested, but if a league needs to group two years/grades together it should strive to limit the maximum age difference between players in a youth game to no more than twenty-four (24) months.
Players who are participating in any high-school level program such as a high school freshman, JV-B, junior varsity, varsity or club team should not be eligible for U14 competition in the same season. This means that a player who is age-eligible for U14 but plays on a high school level team should not concurrently play on a youth league U14 team. At other times of the year this player may be U14 eligible; for example, for summer ball or fall ball play, depending on the guidelines of the sponsoring league or organization.
The following age groupings are determined as of the August 31st preceding competition.
NOTE: Age group references used in this section are in common usage but should not be understood literally. The U14 (read: “Under 14”) grouping means that, if a player is 13 years old or younger on the cutoff date, he may participate in U14 competition.
All players must be 13 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition.
All players must be 11 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition.
All players must be 9 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition.
All players must be 7 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition.
It is recommended that when multiple teams exist, the program should consider physical size, skill, and maturity when organizing teams.
US Lacrosse Going Back to Age Based Teams
By Brian Logue
BALTIMORE — US Lacrosse, the national governing body for men’s and women’s lacrosse, has adopted a new player segmentation policy to help ensure player safety, competitive fairness and a consistent experience for youth lacrosse. The policy was approved by the US Lacrosse Board of Directors in January.
In order to allow leagues, programs and events to adjust, the policy will go into effect on September 1, 2017, but groups are encouraged to begin following the policy sooner if logistics permit.
“We want this to happen as soon as possible, but we know it will take some time for people to adapt to these changes,” said Kristen Murray, vice chair of the US Lacrosse Board of Directors and chair of the task force that recommended the policy. “We need to keep driving it forward, because this is what’s best for the kids.”
Among the notable items in the player segmentation policy:
- An emphasis on grouping players by single-age years (12-month span).
- Age is based on player’s age as of September 1 in an attempt to align with the majority of school systems nationwide to allow players to play with people in their own grade level.
- Firmly defined playing season that begins its 12-month cycle on September 1.
- Standardized nomenclature that lists age first, i.e., 12U.
In order to help leagues and events monitor the age of participants, US Lacrosse has developed an online age verification system, which includes a review of a birth certificate or other legal document to confirm a player’s birth date.
“All of these things — player segmentation, age verification, athlete development — improve the quality of competition, play and overall experience,” said George Leveille, a task force member who also serves as organizer of the popular Summit Lacrosse Tournament in Lake Placid, N.Y. “The new player segmentation policy was designed to increase participation by making it a more enjoyable and safer playing experience. ”
Rules for each age group will be determined by the US Lacrosse rules subcommittees. The rules subcommittees meet each spring and summer to propose rules, which are voted on by the US Lacrosse Board of Directors in September. The rules for each age group will be in sync with the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model, a new initiative for US Lacrosse launched this year.
Members of the lacrosse community wishing to provide input to the rules change process can do so by visiting the following links:
US Lacrosse recognizes that many leagues and programs are currently grouped in age spans beyond 12 months. For local league and community-based play, organizations may form teams with up to a 24-month age variance if necessary to ensure participation. If two age groups are combined, the even year age should be the maximum age for the paired segment (i. e., 7U/8U) and teams with a greater than 12-month variance must play by the rules for the youngest age group of the team. Local organizations that choose to form teams with a 24-month variance should have appropriate risk management policies and planning in place to ensure that player safety is not compromised.
A chart with the player segmentations for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons is available here.
A task force that included US Lacrosse staff, volunteers, and lacrosse leaders from around the country developed the player segmentation policy. A complete copy of the policy is available on the US Lacrosse web site. Helping to guide the decision making process was a research-based position paper on recommendations for youth lacrosse participation published in 2011.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why did the US Lacrosse Board of Directors adopt this policy?
The US Lacrosse Board of Directors adopted the player segmentation policy for three primary reasons: Player safety, competitive fairness and consistent experience for participants.
Why was age chosen to segment players?
Age is the best indicator for determining how to group children due to physical and cognitive development. It is also the most easily verified method to segment players. The new US Lacrosse age verification system will assist leagues and events in ensuring that players are segmented properly. However, the age groupings were designed to align as closely as possible with students’ grade level in school so that they can participate with their classmates.
What happens if there are not enough players to field a team using the new segmentations?
The task force recognized that some programs will not have enough players to segment by single-aged years. Provisions are included to allow 24-month age segmentations for local league and community-based play, if necessary, to ensure participation. The aim of the policy is to improve the experience for everyone in order increase participation, not discourage it.
Why was September 1 chosen as the start date of the season?
The playing season was firmly defined as September 1 through August 31 of each year to help ensure consistency. The fall date was chosen as the start date for the new season, as the majority of teams use the fall to begin their preparation for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
Why is the age listed first on the groupings?
The nomenclature for age groupings was changed to have the age listed first for clarity and to allow for a clear break between youth (14U and younger) and scholastic (15U to 18U) lacrosse. Previously, the U15 level was considered youth, but often included age-eligible high school players. Those situations will be limited in the new structure.
Player Development — Brooklyn Lacrosse
6U (Pee Wee, Co-Ed)
6U Pee Wee Co-Ed lacrosse is the first experience with the sport of lacrosse for many young athletes. The boys entering at this point have a vast difference in their physical and cognitive developments.

US Lacrosse Announces 2021 NTDP Process
US Lacrosse Announces 2021 NTDP Process
Thu Feb 25 2021 | Press Release | USA Insider
SPARKS, Md. — The National Team Development Program (NTDP), an extended pathway for elite high school players to lay the foundation for eventual participation on the U.S. national teams, is back in 2021. US Lacrosse has announced the process and dates for the 2021 program.
The NTDP is a three-phase journey in one calendar year, starting with regional tryouts primarily held in conjunction with some of the top tournaments around the country. Following the regional tryouts, the top 150 boys and girls will be selected to attend national combines at US Lacrosse headquarters in August. The final phase will be 22-player teams named for the USA Select U16 and U18 squads that will participate in the Fall Classic in October.
The regional tryouts are one-day evaluations that last for two and a half hours. During these sessions, players will work hand-in-hand with U.S. national team coaches and players. US Lacrosse has created a standard, well-organized curriculum to be used at every regional tryout where players are evaluated and developed on both technical and tactical skills.
The curriculum for the regionals tryouts is fast-paced, focusing on position-specific, as well as team skills through a series of drills including competition in 1v1’s, 2v2’s, transition drills, and 6v6. Competition, drills, and playing situations are specifically designed to give the evaluators insight into the following areas where they will be rated: athleticism, stickwork, positional skill, game IQ, decision making and on-field presence.
For the regional tryouts, US Lacrosse has teamed up with five event operators — Adrenaline, NXT, PrimeTime, Summit Lacrosse Ventures and Trilogy Lacrosse — to host the tryouts in conjunction with scheduled tournaments.
“We are thrilled to be working with these best-in-class tournament operators to deliver the 2021 NTDP regional tryouts,” said Natalie Wills, senior manager of the National Team Development Program. “This year, we’re going to where the athletes are, and look forward to reaching as many USA hopefuls as possible this summer.”
Generally, the regional tryout will take place the day before the tournament begins. Players do not need to be participating in the tournament to attend the regional tryout. For individuals unable to attend a regional tryout location, there will be a virtual application process. That application process will open later this spring. Here’s the full list of regional tryout dates and locations:

90,000 The American Film Association may revoke the age rating of a new Trier film
On November 28, 140 US theaters screened the director’s cut, which is one minute longer than the theatrical version. This version has not been rated by the American Film Association, which indicates an age rating for viewing. At the same time, the theatrical version should appear in the American box office on December 14 with an R rating (children under 17 only accompanied by adults).
The Film Association of America stated that public screenings of unrated versions of a film may be shown in theaters no earlier than 90 days prior to the start of a rated version and no later than 90 days after it ends. This is done so that viewers do not confuse different versions.
The American Association is ready to withdraw the R rating from the theatrical version of The House That Jack Built. According to them,
The effectiveness of the American Film Association ratings depends on whether American parents trust our recommendations.Therefore, there are clear rules for the use of ratings. Failure to do so can lead to misleading parents and undermine the credibility of our system.
American Film Association ratings are not a requirement for distribution in the United States. However, the lack of a rating, as a rule, entails cinemas’ refusals from wide distribution of the film.
The film distributors, IFC Films, commented on the news:
The main priority of IFC Films is to preserve the artistic intent of filmmakers. We do not believe that one-day screenings of an unrated director’s cut were against the rules of the American Film Association.
IndieWire advises that the 90-day rule applies only to film distributions that last at least seven days, but not one-day screenings, according to the American Film Association’s rule of thumb. This is probably what IFC Films will emphasize in its further statements.
The House That Jack Built, about serial killer Jack, drew controversy during an out-of-competition screening at the Cannes Film Festival.The scenes containing violence against children and women caused displeasure among the audience. More than a hundred people left the hall.
IFC Films is a New York-based film company that distributes films from European and American independent authors. In particular, in 2006 they oversaw the distribution of the BBC and Netflix documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated, directed by Dick Kirby, who was a fierce critic of the American Film Association’s rating system.
The American Film Association’s rating system was established in 1968.According to the results of the 2017 study, during the entire period of operation, ratings were assigned to 29,791 films. On average, this is 587 films per year.

You need a shot of courage – wait for the flight attendants to offer it or order from the menu if the flight is not alcohol-free.
In cases where alcohol is allowed in carry-on baggage, it must be in branded bottles of maximum 100 ml. Pack them together with other liquids in a 20 x 20 cm zip lock bag. Duty free alcohol can be taken in larger bottles, but they must be in the original sealed bag with a receipt.
How much alcohol you can take by plane depends on airport security and customs regulations. Customs officers can turn up what they miss at pre-flight inspection: their requirements are often more stringent.There are no general rules, customs are different in each country, so double-check the rules before flying.

You can also import 1 liter of alcohol with an alcohol strength of more than 22% or 2 liters of alcohol less than 22% free of charge into the EU countries. Drinks from the last two categories can be combined, the main thing is that the percentage for each of them does not exceed 100% in total.That is, you can legally and free of charge bring to Latvia half a liter of brandy (50% of the permitted amount of strong alcohol), 0.35 liters of Baileys (17.5% of the permitted amount of weak alcohol) and a set of three gift bottles of champagne for 0.2 l each (30% of the limit for alcohol with a strength less than 22%). In total, 50% + 17.5% + 30% = 97.5% – they met the norm.

Many countries and airlines allow alcohol in hand luggage in 100 ml bottles, which are in a closed 20 × 20 cm bag.Alcohol from duty free can be taken in bottles larger than 100 ml if they are in a sealed bag with a receipt. You cannot drink your own alcohol on board.||Allowed|

Where do aviation security standards come from?
There is no single document on aviation security that would be used by all airlines in the world. The rules are established by: 1) international organizations, 2) domestic laws, 3) airports and airlines.
1) Almost all countries are members of ICAO – the international civil aviation organization. It regulates everything related to flying, from the design of aircraft engines to the rules for transporting batteries.ICAO issues lengthy documents with standards , which all participating countries are required to comply with, and with recommendations , which are good form to follow, but not necessary. There are other international organizations as well.
Occasionally, ICAO dispatches auditors to check if the standards are being followed by different countries. Take a look at the results page and make sure: only the most advanced fully comply with the requirements.
2) Countries have their own laws. In Russia, these are the Air Code, Federal Aviation Regulations and a bunch of smaller legal acts.In the European Union – Regulation No. 300/2008. They comply with international standards , but not all airports comply with them 100%, and recommendations are generally voluntary. Therefore, control and safety standards are different everywhere. In Ben-Gurion, they are inspected as before a stage, but in Edinburgh there is no inspection at all.
3) Airports and airlines can introduce their own rules. For example, in 2016, many were banned from flying with the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7, without waiting for an official ban from the authorities.
Do not be alarmed! Countries agreed on many things. The lists of things that can and cannot be carried in hand luggage and luggage are more or less the same. Understand the principle and, just in case, check the list on the airline or airport website before flying. To get the necessary information from the Order of the Russian Federation No. 123-456-AB∞, you need to spend half a day on the Internet, and on the Aeroflot website, 5 minutes will be enough.
What to do if prohibited items are found in your luggage or carry-on baggage
If the item is going to be confiscated and it is dear to you, tell us about it.Most likely, there will be a way to save it.
Every airport in the world is full of passengers who have a ban in their luggage and carry-on luggage. Corkscrews, knives, lighters, scissors – nothing special, but they will not be allowed on the plane with this, and you will not be able to check in some of the luggage. More often than not, such things are thrown away. But what if the knife is a grandfather’s inheritance, and the perfume is a wedding gift? With the right approach, nothing will be lost.
We are talking about forbidden, but harmless things.Drugs, weapons without special permission, and other illegal items are another conversation that the police are getting involved in.
There are four options for when and where you can find prohibited items:
1) in your baggage before check-in,
2) in your baggage after check-in – that is, when you have already checked it in,
3) in your carry-on baggage, when you can still return to check-in (on a domestic flight or on an international flight before passport control),
4) in your carry-on baggage, when you can no longer return to check-in (on an international flight after passport control).
Now let’s talk about each one.
1) If prohibited items were found in your luggage before check-in:
- Give them to those who accompany you;
- Put in your car if it is waiting for you in the parking lot;
- Check in to the luggage storage at the airport;
- Mail anywhere. There is mail at many airports, including Pulkovo, Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo.
2) If prohibited items are found in the suitcase after check-in , then in most cases the security service will contact the airline, and it will contact you.What’s next:
- You will be offered to pick up the item, return to registration (if possible) and choose any option from point 1;
- The thing is confiscated;
- The item will be confiscated, but you will receive it on your way back. If the Segway or Zippo lighter is dear to you, explain it to the airline or security personnel. There is a chance that it will be kept at the airport until your return.
3) If prohibited items are found in your carry-on baggage, when you can still return to check-in:
- Check them in;
- Choose any option from step 1.
4) If prohibited items are found in carry-on baggage when you can no longer return to check-in:
- The item will be confiscated;
- Explain to security that this item is valuable. There is a chance that it will be handed over to the airlines, who will take it on the plane and give it to you after the flight;
- Occasionally airlines may check in your belongings themselves and you will receive them on the baggage carousel at the airport of arrival;
- Seized items are often stored at the airport until the owners return.Just make sure that the thing was not just confiscated, but an act was drawn up by which you can receive it.
Olga Minaeva, St. Petersburg: “Once I flew to my friends in London and grabbed three bottles of wine. I didn’t know that they should be checked in as luggage. The wine was found during the inspection of hand luggage and they sent me to sort it out at the airline counter. I run to British Airways, and they say: “Leave it, pick it up on the way back.” I flew back late in the evening, the office is closed and everyone shrugs their shoulders.I was really upset, but then they called someone – and they bring out my package, tightly sealed with tape. It was awfully nice, more than a hundred bucks after all! ”

What not to take in baggage on the plane: new rules 2021
How much baggage can you take with you on the plane? Can I carry alcohol, perfume, aerosols, medicines, cigarettes in my baggage? What about food? Let’s consider these issues in detail.
There are no international rules for the carriage of baggage, each air carrier regulates this issue independently. The airline can choose local or weight transportation of baggage.
Permissible baggage weight per person on the plane
The weight system allows you to carry free of charge:
- in economy class no more than 20 kilograms of baggage with its total linear size of 203 centimeters;
- in business class with the same size is allowed to take 30 kilograms with you.
If at least one parameter of your baggage does not fit into the established norms, the air carrier has the right to demand additional payment. Children under ten years old under such a system have the right to transport ten kilograms of things, and from the age of twelve they are already entitled to an adult rate of cargo transportation.
The weight system is convenient because when traveling together, the weight of all things is summed up, and the number of bags is not counted.
The local system replaces the weighing system, despite its obvious convenience.Aeroflot recently switched to it. Here the rules of carriage are as follows:
- economy class allows you to take only one piece of luggage with a bag no heavier than 23 kilograms;
- in business class conditions are softer: two pieces of baggage weighing no more than 32 kilograms each.
The main difference between the luggage system is that the weight of the luggage is not summed up. For example, on a flight for two in economy class, passengers carry two things weighing 15 and 25 kilograms. The extra two kilos will be counted as the third piece of baggage and paid in full.When planning your luggage before traveling, keep in mind that such overload is charged at a high rate, comparable to the price of the ticket. Therefore, you should carefully calculate the weight of things.
The requirements for the maximum allowable baggage size in the local system are even stricter: the total linear size of the item is not more than 158 centimeters.
Rules for the carriage of food, alcohol and cigarettes on the plane
Alcohol is not included in the list of goods prohibited on the plane, but there are still certain rules for it.So, in hand luggage, each adult passenger has the right to carry one liter of alcoholic beverages, regardless of their strength. The whole amount is divided into several containers of no more than 100 milliliters each. All bottles are packed in a plastic bag with a clasp. It is forbidden to use them on board: the packaging must not be broken until the end of the flight. Breaking the rules can get you in trouble.
Alcohol in luggage is regulated by the following rules:
- liquids not stronger than 24% are carried without restrictions, but without going beyond the general weight restrictions;
- alcohol with a strength of 24 to 70% no more than five liters per passenger;
- alcohol stronger than 70% is prohibited for carriage.
Alcoholic drinks purchased before the flight in duty-free shops are allowed to be carried in carry-on baggage, but in a whole package with a saved receipt. In low-cost companies, you will most likely have to pay for transporting a package of alcohol from a duty-free shop.
In different countries, the norms for the carriage of hot drinks can vary greatly, so before an international flight, inquire about this issue separately.
The same recommendations apply to the question of the rules for the carriage of cigarettes.However, each country sets its own standards, which should be guided by before flying. For example, when flying on the territory of the Russian Federation, only one cigarette block (10 packs of 20 cigarettes), up to 250 grams of tobacco or no more than 50 pieces of cigars can be transported in hand luggage. In this case, the passenger must be 18 years old. Other countries have different age restrictions. For example, in Egypt, a 15-year-old passenger may well carry tobacco products with him, but only those who are already 20 years old can fly to Japan with cigarettes.
As for medicines, it is allowed to carry solid preparations (capsules, powders, tablets) in carry-on baggage. Liquid medicines, as well as ointments, creams and gels must be in a factory container up to 100 ml, and then be packed in a bag (necessarily transparent) measuring 20×20 centimeters.

By the way, there is a list of prohibited drugs for international flights, and you should familiarize yourself with it before departure. For example, when flying to the USA, you will not be able to take on board the usual Russian Corvalol.
On domestic flights, you can take solid food in the cabin if it fits in your carry-on baggage and does not exceed its weight.On international routes, follow the rules of the countries you are traveling to. Usually, eggs, fish, meat and dairy products are not allowed in them. The ban is connected with the fact that these products are perishable and can cause an infectious disease and even an epidemic.
The carriage of liquid products is regulated separately. These include, in addition to water and juices, canned food, jam, jelly, honey, sour cream, cottage cheese, sauces.
Most air carriers regulate the carriage of liquids and limit the carriage of liquids to one liter per passenger, bottled in hermetically sealed bottles with a capacity of no more than one hundred milliliters.All other liquids, including cosmetics, deodorants, colognes, perfumes, mosquito sprays and shampoos, are checked in under the new rules.

What to do if prohibited items are found in the luggage or luggage
Passengers often carry the “forbidden”, doing it not intentionally, but simply, not knowing thoroughly the rules of the flight.If the airport security personnel find prohibited items in hand luggage or baggage, and you do not want to lose them, the situation should be resolved in the following ways.
- If the prohibited things were found before registration: give them to the accompanying persons, hand them over to the storage room or send them by mail (there is a branch at each airport) to the desired place.
- If prohibited items are found after the registration procedure, the airline employees will offer a couple of options for resolving the misunderstanding: a complete confiscation of the “prohibited” item or a temporary seizure with the ability to pick up things after returning.Make sure that an act will be drawn up for things that are valuable to you, but which are prohibited from being transported, according to which you can get them back.

If prohibited items are found in hand luggage after passport control. Most likely they will be confiscated, you can ask to draw up an act of seizure and leave them in storage at the airport, then return for them upon your return.

- They are shown separately for outside baggage during security checks
- They are packaged in packages with a maximum volume of 100 ml (100 g)
- original packaging)
- Stored in a transparent resealable plastic bag with a maximum volume of 1 liter
At the same time, liquid, aerosol and gels intended for baby food or dietary products necessary for the trip can be taken with you (we recommend having with a doctor’s confirmation or doctor’s prescription), or they were purchased from a third-party post’s fli website and packed in a sealed travel safety bag (so-called STEB)
17 unexpected things you shouldn’t take in your carry-on luggage

1. Tent pegs
Fly to a music festival? Camping? Do not carry tent pegs in your carry-on baggage – they will be confiscated . Which will make you get a little stuck: you either have to sleep under the stars, which can lead to the fall of a fellow festival, or pee on you at night; or stay awake for three days, which you can do anyway, so it doesn’t matter.
2. Lighters (several)
Oddly enough, given the official wording, “you cannot take any items in your hand luggage that could injure you and other passengers”, you can take a lighter with you on the plane. But no more than one. Oddly enough, “You must keep your lighter with you throughout the flight. It is very important that you do not return it in your carry-on baggage after checking ‘.
Rules are rules.While you can argue that a single serving of chicken and mushrooms is less of a safety hazard to your fellow travelers than a lighter, liquid is liquid. Well, 101 ml or more liquid. The same goes for mascara, cream and, of course, water. Here are 7 other foods to avoid on your next flight.
4.22 Duty Free Perfume Samples
You might think you can bypass the rule of liquids by pouring large bottles into many small containers, but containers NO: ‘must be shipped in one clear, resealable plastic bag that does not hold over a liter and measures approximately 20 cm x 20 cm .All containers must also be less than 100 ml. Read our complete guide to carrying liquids in carry-on baggage here.
While we’re on the subject of liquids, if you need to keep a large bottle of “essential” drugs with you, well, tight. You cannot take more than 100 ml. In fact, you can if you notify the airport in advance. Not sure if they’ll take Sauvignon Blanc as their primary medicine, but it’s worth a try. In terms of pills, try a 7 Day Pill Box to keep things organized and easily visible to the airport security officer.Here you can find a complete guide on what you can and don’t take with you.
6. Badminton Rackets
The authorities are bored with sports equipment. Cricket Rackets: Fair enough – the loyal willow is the weapon of choice for many articulate, gray-haired, real-life ale-loving strikers, but badminton rackets are also banned.
7. Fishing rods
Why take a harpoon with you is up to you, but if you are going on vacation to whale, you will have to put it in the hold.It’s the same with the fishing rods, presumably so you won’t be tempted to react to that pesky kid in Seat 11A by hooking him up with the Woolly Worm.
If you are a carpenter or plumber, check-in fees eat up your income as you are not allowed to carry essential items in your tool bag, such as screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, saws, drills or drills on airplane. We’ve put together a guide to the tools you can use here.
From tear gas to contaminated blood and fire extinguishers, “Chemicals and Toxic Substances” is the total NO . This includes peroxide. So if you are leaving for Malia with the guys and are going to have a fun lightening of your hair, do it before you leave.
No, not the kind that your father probably rocked in the 70s, although if we depended on us they would have been banned too! No, “ANY FORM” flares are banned , just in case you’re not sure.
11. Protein Powder
While you may enjoy the swelling of your shins, TSA is not so interested. As of June 2018, if you are flying to or from the United States, you must store powdered substances such as coffee, spices, milk powder, protein powder, or beauty products in a container that is no larger than 12 ounces. This is 350 grams. The Whey Box has some nifty bags you could wrap up!
12. Walnut oil
When talking about nuts for health, it is worth noting that walnut oil is usually considered liquid.This means that you need to make sure that the volume of the nut butter being packaged does not exceed 100 ml.
13. Artificial explosives
This seems pretty obvious, right? It’s the same with toy weapons, explosives and ammunition. When traveling to and from the United States, the TSA is required to view this as a threat – which means bringing in a squad of bombers, even if your little gun just carried the wrong toy. Definitely worth checking out. Check out TSA Instagram for more carry-on scandals.
You’d be a little pissed off if someone took your brie off on your way back from France, right? Unfortunately, soft cheese is considered liquid, so don’t put the whole cheese in your carry-on baggage. A small portion in your liquid bag will do (think about Babybel size). Place the gorgonzola in a tightly closed bag to test.
15. Viking helmets
Does your attractive Viking costume have a spike more than 6 cm? Unfortunately, it must be left in the hold.The rule for blades / sharp objects also applies here. Be sure to check gov.uk’s carry-on baggage rules before taking anything suspicious-looking like a Viking helmet with you on your next flight.
Drones are not an easy task, especially as technology advances. When carrying the drone in flight, it is most important to pay attention to the type of batteries you are using. In most cases, lithium batteries are used, which you need to carry in your carry-on baggage.If your propellers are larger than 6cm, they are worth checking out as they may be considered blades. And finally, check your local drone laws wherever you travel – Nicaragua has a complete no-fly drone ban unless you have permission.
While lithium batteries are actually permitted in carry-on baggage , are not permitted in the hold. This is so that in the event of a battery failure, the airline can intervene and prevent further problems.If you remember when batteries inside phones and laptops kept catching fire in the air, that’s where the rule comes from. This applies to batteries inside your laptop, phones, or electronic devices – check out the full CAA instructions here.
