2018 AE LACROSSE WINTER LEAGUE RULES

 

  • 7 V 7   INCLUDING GOALIES
  • TEAMS CAN USE A COACH/PARENT ON THE SIDELINE TO HELP WITH SUBSTITUTIONS.
  • THE REFEREES ARE INSTRUCTED TO CALL THE GAMES TIGHTLY TO KEEP PHYSICALITY AND SPORTSMANSHIP UNDER CONTROL
  • ALL PENALITES ARE 30 SECONDS
  • NO BODYCHECKING!  PLAYERS CAN COMPETE HARD FOR GROUNDBALLS BUT BODY CHECKING IS ILLEGAL.  THE REFEREES HAVE A RIGHT TO EJECT ANY PLAYER THEY BELIEVE IN INTENTIONALLY LOOKING TO INFLICT HARM.  THIS LEAGUE IS A WARM-UP FOR THE PLAYER'S SEASON AND INTENDED TO BE COMPETITIVE BUT FUN AND SAFE.
  • THERE IS OFFSIDES (NEED TO LEAVE TWO PLAYERS BACK IN OFFENSIVE ZONE AND THREE IN THE DEFENSIVE).  PLEASE NOTE: THIS CAN BE A TOUGH CALL FOR OFFICIALS TO MAKE AT TIMES DUE TO THE SPEED OF THE GAME SO IT IS MISSED SOMETIMES.
  • WALLS AND SIDELINES ARE OUT OF BOUNDS.  JUST LIKE FIELD LACROSSE, CLOSEST TO THE SHOT WILL MAINTAIN POSSESSION.
  • THERE ARE ONLY FACE-OFFS TO BEGIN THE GAME, 2ND HALF AND OVERTIME IF NEEDED.
  • AFTER EVERY GOAL, THE BALL MUST BE PUT BACK INTO PLAY BY STARTING THE POSSESSION BELOW GOAL LINE EXTENDED.  ONCE THE BALL IS BROUGHT BELOW THE GOAL LINE, THE BALL IS IN PLAY.  DEFENDING TEAMS MUST GIVE THE INBOUNDING PLAYER 5 YARDS AFTER GOALS.
  • ANY FIGHTING WILL BE AN AUTOMATIC EJECTION AND SUSPENSION FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK AS WELL.
  • TWO 25 MINUTE RUNNING TIME HALVES WITH A 3 MINUTE HALF TIME.  WE WANT TO KEEP HALF TIME SHORT IN CASE A GAME NEEDS TO GO TO OVERTIME.  
  • OVERTIME IS 5 V 5 INCLUDING GOALIES. YOU NEED TO LEAVE ONE PLAYER BACK IN THE DEFENSIVE END.
  • OVERTIME IS SUDDEN VICTORY. 
  • THERE IS A FACE-OFF TO START OVERTIME.
  • PLEASE RESPECT THE REFEREES AND THEIR JOB.  IT IS A DIFFICULT GAME TO OFFICIATE AT TIMES, ESPECIALLY INDOORS.  THEY ARE HUMANS AND MAKE MISTAKES.
