Rules

G8 will follow all US Lacrosse & NFHS Rules as it pertains to each age level with the following tournament specific modifications:

There are NO timeouts.

During an injury timeout, clock will run.

8-meter shots will be played out if the horn sounds for the end of the game or half. If the 8-meter free position is already in play when the game horn sounds, then the game is done at the time of the horn. If a shot was in flight and was released from a stick prior to the horned goes in the goal, the ruling is ‘good goal’ – same as USL.

Alternate possession – The team listed first on the schedule receives the first alternate possession. After the initial possession is awarded, the possession will then alternate.

1 Yellow card – the player must sit for 2 minutes, running clock, the official will keep time.

2 Yellow cards – the player must sit the remainder of the game. And may return to the next game.

RED card (Coach) – the coach must leave the game and remain away from the game until the completion of the game.
