1 U15 Small Sided Competition Guidelines Age and developmentally appropriate lacrosse competition for boys 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.

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 crease. The Goal Crease The crease shall have a 9 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 80x60 yards.

6 Field Players The U15 Competition is played by having 9 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 Players are required to wear full protective equipment at this level, as outlined in the US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Best Practices Guidebook. Sticks Existing 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 four (4) 10-minute stopped time quarters, with a two minute break between each quarter and a 5 minute break between the 2 nd and 3 rd quarters. Timeouts Each team is permitted (2) non-consecutive two-minute timeouts per half and (1) twominute timeout per overtime period. Timeouts are not transferrable between halves or overtime periods. Overtime Unlimited four-minute overtimes until a suddenvictory winner is determined. Advancing the Ball Teams have 20 seconds to clear their defensive half of the field once gaining possession of the ball and 10 seconds to advance the ball into their offensive zone once crossing the midfield line. Scorekeeping Offensive 10 second count, defensive 20 second count. Scores are to be kept at this level of play.

8 Starting the Competition A coin-toss will be used to determine which team is defending which end of the field prior to the game. The winner of the toss can choose First Alternating Possession or choice of goal. Competitions begin with a face-off per current NFHS/US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Guidelines. Restarting After a Goal is Scored After a goal is scored, competition resumes with a face-off per current NFHS/US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Guidelines. Off-Sides A team is considered off-sides when they have more than 6 players (including any players in the penalty area) on their offensive side of the field or when they have more than 7 players (including any players in the penalty area) on their defensive side of the field. Substitutions See NFHS/US Lacrosse Youth Rules and Guidelines. Coaches should emphasize regular substitutions, focusing on player development in multiple positions on the field..
