3v3 RULES OF PLAY
(Modifications may apply based on how many register)
AC Sandhills Lacrosse programs seek to comply with US Lacrosse rules as provided by Official Rules for Girls Youth Lacrosse
Games will be 3 vs. 3
There will be four 8-minute quarters, 2 minutes in between and a 5 minute halftime
Teams must have 2 attempted passes before a shot on goal may be taken (officials will help keep track)
Game will start with a draw and after each goal the game will resume with a draw unless "Mercy Rule" is in effect
Mercy Rule: if a team is up by 4 or more goals, the other team may elect with the ball at the center instead of doing a draw.
If the ball goes in the crease and stays there, the official will blow the whistle. One player on the defensive team will be allowed to go in and get the ball and she can cradle or pass it out on the whistle to resume play (players may NOT enter the crease unless there is a whistle).
Basic fouls that will be called: stick to body contact initiated by defender, pushing, check towards the body, dangerous check, covers, empty stick checks (no checking in elementary, below the shoulder only in middle school).
Blatant Shooting Space = this rule is for SAFETY - will be called it when it is blatant and the girls are putting themselves in a dangerous position in front of a shooter.
If a player is fouled on a scoring play after the team has completed the two required passes, she will be awarded a direct shot on goal.
Hockey Nets will be used
The player bench areas must be located on the opposite side of the field from the spectators.
Relatively equal playing time should be mandated in all games.
CANCELLATIONS: We will send emails AND Coach text messages should we need to cancel any sessions. You will receive an email from "AC Sandhills via StackSportsMail <>" and a text message from your assigned coach. Please be sure to read messages from these senders.
