  • · Games begin with a face off. There will be a face off after each goal. All players can go anywhere on the field.
  • · Games will be comprised of one period of twenty-five minutes running time.
  • · Each team is allowed one timeout per game – one minutes in duration.
  • · Shot Clock: The offensive team is allowed 30 seconds, once they gain possession, to make a shot on goal (or through the crease). Referee will signal that the shot clock has reset by raising his arm.
  • · Crease play: Goalie and defensemen are allowed to be in the crease area in their defensive zone. The goalie has four seconds to progress the ball from the crease. Offensive players are not allowed to run through the crease. They can follow through the crease on a shot as long as they do not make contact with the goalie at any time.
  • · Penalties will be in one minute increments. A penalty must be served for its duration by the penalized player. If a penalty is released by a goal, the substitute player may enter the game as the penalty is terminated, not the penalized player.
  • · Back court Violation: Once the ball has progressed to the offensive side of the field, the offensive team may not pass or carry the ball to the defensive end. If the ball goes to the defensive end off a shot, it is not a back court violation. If the ball goes to the back court and is in possession, the whistle blows immediately and changes possession. If it is loose (“Lucy”) then a play on occurs.  Ball starts at the point where the ball was at the whistle or laterally from the goal.
  • · Box lacrosse rules will be inforced.
  • · Judgement of the officials is final.
