FAIRPORT LACROSSE CLASSIC

GIRLS RULES

 

The Classic for Girls 1st/2nd & 3rd/4th grades will use the following Lacrosse Rules:

  • Participation:   Individuals on the teams in the league should currently be in 3rd through 4th grade only. Younger players may play up at their coach's discretion. No higher grades will be allowed. Games will be played using 7 players and 1 goalie.
  • Goggles:  GOGGLES and MOUTHGUARDS are required for all players.
  • Contact Rules: NO checking.
  • Field Info: Fields will be 80 yards, rather than the standard 100 yards. The restraining line will be used and marked 30 yards from the goal line. Both teams must keep 2 players (not including the goalie) behind the restraining line.  Hard boundaries will be played for all ages (except girls 1st & 2nd Grades) 
  • Pass Rule: One pass must be attempted in the offensive end of the field (measured at mid-field). If the pass is incomplete or dropped and is recovered by the offensive team, the pass is considered complete. If possession is turned over, one pass must again be attempted.
  • Substitution: will be on the fly. Substitution cannot be made on a dead ball except after a goal.
  • Penalties: Minor penalty: possession and 1 meter away for penalized player. Major penalty: possession and penalized player moves 4 meters away. Within 8 meters: penalty = direct shot.
  • Time Keeping: We will play two – 20 minute running halves with a 2-minute half time. The game time will be the same for all fields and be kept at the command tent, not at the individual fields. Air horns will sound for all games at the start of the games, end of 1st half, start of second half and end of game. There is no overtime: any game that ends in a tie at the end of regulation remains a tie. The 3-second rule will not be enforced.
  • Goal Rule:  Draw after each goal. Shooting space will be enforced.
