General tournament guidelines: 

  • Good sportsmanship in the spirit of fun is always in style.  

  • Central horn will start and stop all games.

  • Please have your team at your assigned game field ready to play 10 minutes before their starting horn. 

  • Please leave the playing fields quickly after each game.  Do the end of game handshake off the field so the next game can start immediately.

  • No gum or food on the turf - only water please.  

  • Please clean up water bottles as you leave your games.


Rules for ALL Levels (USL youth rules apply):

  • All players must have mouth guards and eye protection. 

  • No jewelry. No tape on earrings etc.

  • Substitutions must be done “on the fly.”  No subs on dead balls.

  • Mercy Rule:  If there is more than a four goal margin, the losing team will be awarded the ball at midfield after each goal without a draw.  If the games become too uneven, we encourage the winning team to increase the number of required passes.  Please show good sportsmanship and consideration as many of our players are new to the game.

  • No deputy in the goal.

  • No body or stick in the goal circle (includes the cylinder as marked by the outer edge of the goal circle)

  • No pushing


Three Second Closely Guarded Rule:  
A player may not hold onto the ball for more than 3 seconds (applies anywhere on the field) when

  • Defender is within a stick's length (closely guarded)

  • The defender (one or more players) has both hands on her stick for full 3 seconds and is position to legally check if checking were allowed.

  • To stop the count, the offensive player must move crosse to uncheckable position or move more than stick's length away.  She can turn her body so it's between the defender and the stick which ends the count.  She can switch hands to cradle the ball on the opposite side of the body away from the defender.   

  • A verbal count will be given and the possession will be lost when the official says "3" or blows the whistle

  • The foul usually occurs when an attacker is double or triple teamed (ie standing in a crowd in the 8M where she cannot move her stick to an uncheckable position) or while a defender is escorting the ball carrier down the field and meets the criteria of the rule. 

5th & 6th GRADES :

  • Modified checking

  • 11 v 11 plus goalies.  If no goalie, teams may put a 12th player on field.

  • No pass requirement, but passing is encouraged.

  • If a card is given, player will sit for 2 minutes from when play resumes and team will play short on offense and defense.


3rd & 4th GRADES:

  • No checking

  • 7 v 7, no goalies; goal blockers will be used.

  • No pass requirement, but passing is encouraged.

  • If a card is given, player will sit for 2 minutes from when play resumes and team will play short on offense and defense.

Coach and Spectator Conduct:  Coaches, and spectators are expected to be positive roles models during games and are expected to refrain from unsporting comments at officials, or opposing coaches or players.  There are no jamboree winners and we are not keeping score.  We look forward to a great day of fun.
