1 U15 Small Sided Competition Guidelines Age and developmentally appropriate lacrosse competition for girls playing in the U15 Age Classification

2 Our Vision We envision a future that offers people everywhere the opportunity to discover, learn, participate in, enjoy, and ultimately embrace the shared passion of the lacrosse experience. About Athlete Development It is our sincere hope that by providing these competition guidelines to lacrosse coaches, parents, and program administrators, players across the country will have an opportunity to learn lacrosse in a way that is physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially appropriate. We believe that this increases both the learning and fun for young athletes. When kids are having fun, they are learning and when they learn they improve. Age appropriate competitions will help young athletes reach their full potential, because they will Learn Lacrosse Better Love Lacrosse More Stay in Lacrosse Longer The Small Sided Competition Guidelines and contents herein are the exclusive property of US Lacrosse. Reproduction in whole or part is strictly prohibited. For reproduction requests, please contact US Lacrosse at (410) Version 1.0 Published 12/1/2015

3 Philosophy of U15 Lacrosse U15 lacrosse is where young athletes begin emerging into a competitive environment. The children entering at this point have a vast difference in their physical and cognitive developments and the game they play should be designed to reinforce fundamental technical skills and practical tactical applications for playing lacrosse. Essentially, they are preparing to be competitors. Careful planning must be used to ensure that the environment is inclusive of all athletes, provides multiple opportunities for each athlete to touch the ball, encourages experimentation, and a progressive development of existing technical skills. Additionally, the technical skills they are honing, are now being applied to the tactical aspect of the game. Athletes should be coached to have a Growth Mindset by having effort praised ahead of results. With respect to the competition at this level, coaches, parents, and officials should emphasize: FUN Using technical skills in game situations Expanding tactical skills Situational understanding.

4 Age and Eligibility Player must be 14 years old or younger on August 31 of the year preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, teams should consider the physical size, skill, and maturity level when selecting teams. At no time should players younger than 13 years of age be permitted to play at the U15 level. Ideally, players should be playing in single age classifications. Playing Up or Down It is not recommended that players participate outside of their age classification due to the vast differences is physical and cognitive development. If program size allows, teams should be selected based on the physical size, skill, and maturity level of the athletes in a single age classification. Recommended Roster Sizes Local administrators should strive to construct their teams with a player to coach ratio of 15:1. This ratio provides ample opportunity for all athletes to receive effective coaching. It is recommended that whenever possible teams do not have more than 20 or less than 15 players. Coaches and Officials Coaches are not permitted on the field of play. They may roam the designated coaches box on their respective sideline. US Lacrosse recommends 2 certified officials on the field for every competition.

5 Field Dimensions and Specifications The Goal 6x6 goals with securely affixed netting. The goal shall be centered within the goal goal circle. The Goal Circle The goal circle shall have a 8.5 radius. Field Markings Given the multiple constraints that many programs encounter, no permanent or semipermanent markings are required by rule. Programs may elect to use flat disc cones in part or whole to designate the playing area. Whenever possible, existing lines on a field may be used to define boundaries, provided the field does not exceed 100x55 yards.

6 Field Players The U15 Competition is played by having 11 field players from each team on the field at a time and 1 legally equipped goalkeeper. Goalkeepers Goalkeepers are required at the U15 level of play. Additionally, no player other than a legally equipped goalkeeper (by USL Youth Rules and Guidelines) may intentionally assume the role of goalkeeper. Protective Equipment Goggles and mouthguards are required for all field players and goalkeepers must be properly equipped as designated in the US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Guidelines. Sticks Existing NFHS/ USL Youth Rules Specs. The Ball The ball must meet NOCSAE specifications to be legal for play.

7 Competition Timing A competition will consist of two (2) twenty five-minute running time halves, with a fiveminute halftime period. Timeouts Teams will have (1) two-minute timeout per half. Timeouts do not carry over to the second half or overtime periods. Overtime Each team is permitted (2) non-consecutive twominute timeouts per half and (1) two-minute timeout per overtime period. Timeouts are not transferrable between halves or overtime periods. Scorekeeping Scores are to be kept at this level of play.

8 Starting the Competition Prior to the start of competition the official will call one player from each team and conduct a coin toss. The winner of the coin toss will choose which goal they defend or first Alternating Possession. The loser of the coin toss will be awarded the remaining choice. The competition will start with a 3v3 draw at the center. All remaining players must be placed equally behind their offensive and defensive restraining line. All players are released on the officials whistle. Restarting After a Goal is Scored After a goal is scored, the competition will restart with a 3v3 draw at the center. All remaining players must be placed equally behind their offensive and defensive restraining line. All players are released on the officials whistle. Off-Sides Yes. A team is considered off-sides when they have more than 7 players past their offensive restraining line or when they have more than 8 players (including the goalkeeper) past their defensive restraining line. Substitutions See NFHS/US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Guidelines. Coaches should emphasize regular substitutions, focusing on player development in multiple positions on the field.

9 Minor Fouls Raking the Ball At no time may a player use the back of their stick to cover or rake the ball backwards. They may only use a forward scooping motion to attempt to gain possession of the ball. Covering the Ball Players are not permitted to cover the ball under any circumstances. Goal Circle Violation No player other than the properly equipped goalkeeper, from either team may enter the goal circle at any time. A player may reach her stick into the goal circle for the sole purpose of collecting a loose ball. If the ball becomes ensnared in the outside of the goal, the official will blow the whistle and award the ball to the defensive team. Minimum Passing Requirement Teams are not required to complete a minimum number of passes before going to goal. Coaches should stress the importance of teamwork and utilizing all players. A coach may choose to enforce a minimum requirement on his or her own team. Goalkeeper Interference With one foot inside of her goal circle and possession of the ball the goalkeeper is protected from checking of any type.

10 Goalkeeper Counts In the event of the goalkeeper gaining possession of the ball within her goal circle during a live-ball situation, the goalkeeper has 10 seconds to either exit the goal circle or attempt to pass the ball out of the goal circle to a member of her team. Off Sides A team is considered off-sides when they have more than 7 players past their offensive restraining line or when they have more than 8 players (including the goalkeeper) past their defensive restraining line.

11 Major Fouls Checking Modified, below the shoulder checking is permitted. Body Contact Legal body contact while attempting to gain possession of a loose ball in situations such as ground balls or off the draw is permissible. Unsportsmanlike Conduct Players are expected to uphold the highest levels of sportsmanship at all times.

12 KEY OBJECTIVES FOR SUCCESS Focus-Where we spend most of our time.
