3 The role of parents You, the parent, are as equally important to your child s positive lacrosse experience as the coach of the team. In order for your child to get the most out of playing lacrosse, it is important that you do the following. ONE TWO THREE FOUR FIVE SIX SEVEN EIGHT NINE TEN Be supportive of your child by giving encouragement and showing interest in the team. Positive reinforcement encourages learning and fun. Attend games whenever possible. If you cannot attend, ask how your child did, not whether the team won. Be a positive role model by displaying good sportsmanship at all time to coaches, referees, opponents and teammates. Let your children set their own goals and play the game for themselves. Let the coach coach. Respect the decisions of the referee. Read the rule book. A full understanding of the rules will help you enjoy the game and educate others. Speak positively about each other, our team, and the St. Albert organization at every opportunity. Get involved. Sit back and enjoy the game. Remember, we play for fun.

5 The Lacrosse Arena

6 Lacrosse Positions Box lacrosse is played with no "set" positions. The entire line will play as a unit, with all five players in on the offence or defence, as the situation requires. The players do specialize in some area. These are: GOAL: POINTMEN: SHOOTER: The goalie's responsibility is to protect the goal and stop the opposing team from scoring. A good goalie also leads the defence by reading the situation and directing the defencemen to react. A good goalie should have excellent hand-eye co-ordination and a strong voice. Quickness, agility, confidence and the ability to concentrate are also essential. The pointman s main responsibilities are to win face-offs and direct the team on offence. The pointmen should be the key to the transition game. A pointmen must be good with his stick and be able to pass, catch, shoot and scoop loose balls. Speed and stamina are essential. The shooter s responsibility is to defend the goal. A good shooter should be able to react quickly in game situations. He should be able to prevent the attacking player from getting the ball or strip him of it when he does have possession. Agility and aggressiveness are necessary. Great stick work is not essential, but he must be able to pick up loose balls and feed the forwards. CREASEMEN: The creasemen s responsibility is to score goals. A good creasemen exhibits excellent stick skills with both hands and has quick feet to manoeuver around the goal. The creasemen must be able to get away from the defender and be able to catch, pass and shoot accurately.

7 Lacrosse Equipment The Stick The Ball The Helmet The Mouthpiece The Glove Protective Equipment The stick is made of wood, fibreglass, aluminium or titanium with a pocket of leather or other material at the end. The stick must be inches long and between 41/2-8 inches wide at the head. In Pee Wee and lower divisions the stick may be as short as 34 inches. The goalie's stick may be up to 15 inches wide and of any length. The ball is made of solid rubber and is white, red or orange in colour. It is eight inches around and weighs six ounces. The helmet must be a CSA approved protective helmet with a facemask equipped with a chin pad. It must be fastened securely with a proper chinstrap. The facemask can have no opening that will allow the ball or the head of a stick to pass through. Any helmet that has been altered in any way is deemed dangerous equipment and will not be allowed in play. It is a must for all players to use a mouthpiece as it will help to prevent dental and other head injuries. Special lacrosse gloves or hockey gloves are worn to protect the fingers and hand. They come with highly flexible wrists to allow for stick handling. All players wear shoulder, arm, rib, knee and back pads. The goalie is required to wear a throat protector as well as a chest protector. All padding, as well as an athletic supporter with protective cup, is strongly recommended to avoid injury.

8 The time clock Lacrosse is billed as the fastest game on two feet and the time of possession clock has been used to ensure that this is the case. As soon as a team gains possession of the ball the possession clock is reset. The team is then given a specific time to accomplish various tasks. The first thing that a team must do is to make sure that the ball is moved out of their own crease within five seconds. The goalkeeper may pass the ball out to one of his players or he may choose to run out with the ball. If the ball is not out of the crease in this time it will be given to the opposing team in the nearest corner. If the team gaining possession of the ball is short-handed they have ten seconds to get the ball into the attacking zone and must then keep it there. If they do not get into the attacking zone or if the ball is brought back out of the zone, other than by a shot on net or an action by the defending team, it is awarded to the opposing team. This time limit only applies to teams playing short-handed. If a team is playing at even strength or has a man advantage, then they must take a shot on goal within thirty seconds or lose possession to the opposing team. The shot must hit the net, post or goalie and must not be taken from behind the goal line. The referee will signal the shot by raising his hand in the air. The timekeeper will then reset the clock. The clock will not start to run until one of the teams regains possession of the ball. The thirty-second rule does not apply to teams playing short-handed unless the goalkeeper or his replacement crosses into the attacking zone. At the moment this occurs the possession clock with start to run and the team has thirty seconds to take a shot on goal. The clock will not reset with the goalkeeper leaving the zone but will run for the full thirty seconds.

9 Lacrosse rules Box Lacrosse is a contact sport played by six players: a goalie and five runners. The object of the game is to shoot the ball into the oppositions net. The team scoring the most goals wins. Games are divided into three periods. In major lacrosse the period length is twenty minutes of stop time. Minor lacrosse has variations on period length due to local regulations. Teams change ends between periods. Each team is allowed one 30-second timeout during regulation time. In Major lacrosse each team is allowed a second time out. There is a face-off after every goal and to start each period. As there is no offside rule in box lacrosse, players may line up where they want for the face-off as long as they remain outside of the face-off circle. On gaining possession of the ball at a face-off, a player may then run, pass or shoot the ball at the net. Only a goalkeeper may touch the ball with his hands. Other players are allowed to try to get the ball from the ball carrier by checking the stick or by body checking. Defensive players are allowed to use their stick to push attacking players but may not hit them below the waist, above the shoulders or in the back. The goal crease is for the goalie's protection and no opposing player may enter to play the ball. The ball may not be carried into the crease by anyone, but the goalie may pull a ball into the crease with his stick. Possession is awarded when the opposing team causes the ball to go out of play, if they interfere with a player trying to get to a loose ball, if a defending player is prevented from checking the ball carrier or if a player touches the ball or pushes an opponent with his hand. Two-minute minor, 5-minute major, 10-minute misconduct penalties or ejection from the game may be issued for various infractions. If a goal is scored during a minor penalty or if two goals are scored during a major penalty, the player may return to the floor provided the team is short-handed at the time. Penalty shots may be awarded if a player is fouled from behind during a breakaway or for certain delay of game penalties.

13 Possession Calls Ball out of Play Crease Play Face-offs Time Violations Free Hand Interference Back Over if a team causes the ball to go out of play other than by a shot on net, then their opponent will take possession at the point it went out of play. If the ball goes out of play after a shot on net, the goalkeeper will get possession to restart play. The ball will be awarded to the other team if: a player, in possession of the ball, steps into the goal crease. a team does not move the ball out of its own crease within 5 seconds. a player touches the ball, receives a pass or interferes with an opponent's stick in his opponent's crease. a player passes the ball to a team-mate in the crease, other than to his goalkeeper in Minor Lacrosse.

If the team in possession of the ball violates the 5, 10 or 30 second rule, the opposing team will take possession at the position of the ball at the moment the time ran out. If a ball carrier uses his free hand to ward off an opponent's attempt to check him or his stick, the ball is awarded to the opponent. The fact that the ball carrier removes his hand from the stick does not constitute a free hand call. He must actually use his hand to fend off the check. This call is made when a player prevents an opponent from having an opportunity from playing a loose ball, a pass or completing a check. The interference of the player must be the cause of the missed opportunity. If a team playing short-handed causes the ball to come out of the attacking zone other than by a shot on net their opponent will be awarded the ball.
