TOURNAMENT RULES

 


1st/2nd Grade Rules

  1. All players must be current members of US Lacrosse.
  2. Each game is two 20 minute running time halfs and the Coaches are responsible for the game clock. Games must start and end on-time. Coaches can also decide when to take a break.
  3. Two fields running sideways on Field 1. Leave a 20 yard space between the fields (10 yards on either side of regular midfield line) for the team areas. Parent seating on the other sideline (the normal end lines). Cone will mark the bench sideline.
  4. If a team is short on players, the coaches can mutually agree to play 8 v. 8 including the goalie if 10 v. 10 isn’t possible. Two attack and two defense stay back, play 5 on 5 in the offensive end.
  5. Coaches are on the field for instruction, as well as to officiate the game, preferably one from each team officiating.
  6. No man up / man down. If a foul occurs, send the player off the field for a replacement.
  7. No long poles.
  8. No minimum passing requirement (4th grade rule).
  9. ABSOLUTELY NO BODY CHECKING.


3rd Grade Rules

  1. All players must be current members of US Lacrosse.
  2. Each game is two twenty minute running time halfs and the Officials are responsible for the game clock. Games must start and end on-time. Coaches can decide when to take a break.
  3. Parents MUST sit on the sideline opposite the team benches. Bench side on Fields 2 and 3 is the side to the east (nearest to Route 206)
  4. If a team is short on players, the coaches can mutually agree to play 8 v. 8 including the goalie if 10 v. 10 isn’t possible. Two attack and two defense stay back, play 5 on 5 in the offensive end.
  5. Only one (1) coach is permitted on the field for instruction.
  6. No man up / man down. If a foul occurs, send the player off the field for a replacement.
  7. No long poles.
  8. Minimum one pass requirement (4th grade rule) is in effect. Every time the team in possession transitions from defense to offense by crossing midfield they must make at least one pass before a shot is attempted. The same applies after gaining possession on a face-off. This encourages team play and prevents a single dominant player from going to the goal uninhibited every time he has the ball.
  9. ABSOLUTELY NO BODY CHECKING.
