Updates to the Reference Manual Clarifications/Reminders: If an assistant coach is ever running practices alone, they must meet all of the head coach requirements. Last Contest Date- No games scheduled for Fri. May 10.
Updates to the Reference Manual Additions: Uniforms entered into Sportability- Players must have their names and jersey numbers entered into Sportability and they should match all season long. If a coach or team delegate changes players uniforms without notifying opponents, that coach and/or program may be fined $100 per incident.

Reminders: Scheduling Scheduling Each team must play each contest for which they are scheduled Double check school and district calendar before finalizing schedule Think about scheduling 1-2 makeup games Must have minimum of 9 field players to start a game without forfeiting the game Reminder of Deadlines Last Regular Season game must be played by Thursday, May 9th
Reminders: Scheduling Non League Games Non league Games All Teams will be responsible for scheduling their own Non League matchups and contests.

Use today as a Speed Date to meet some non-league opponents.

Reminder: Rule of 2 OGLA will continue to follow OSAA Practice Limitation Rule. This applies from August 20, 2012 – February 25, 2013: A team may not make any attempt to gather more than 2 members of the same high school program together per day outside the defined lacrosse season to receive specialized athletic instruction from any coach associated with the high school program (paid or volunteer). Any activities cannot be mandatory, must be open to all, and no sticks
Reminder: Undue Influence & Tracking Transfers Undue Influence Cannot recruit players, if potential player contacts you, redirect them to OGLA Tracking Transfers – Request due Feb 1 Transfers are allowed for students whose school doesnt have a team She may play for the school within her home district closest to where she resides, with approval of that schools officials If student attends a private school that doesnt have a team, she must play for the public school she would have attended If a student is a senior and her family moves to a different school district, or a new team is started at her school and she is a senior she may continue to play for her current club if she desires.
Reminder: Coaches Code of Conduct Key provisions With regard to players: I believe that the score of the game comes second to the safety and welfare of all players. With regard to opposing teams Neither I nor my players will display hostile behavior towards opposing players. With regard to Umpires: I will display a controlled an undemonstrative attitude toward umpires at all times.
Playoffs & LaxPower Playoffs ONLY league games will be used to determine playoff berths. Four (4) teams from each league will receive a playoff berth. Each League will determine how berths are awarded and league rankings. All League Playoff Policies, including selection and tie-breaking procedures, must be on file with OGLA by 2/1/2013
