3-MAN LACROSSE MECHANICS Updated: 02/03/09
2HOMEVISITOR XXXXXOOOOO Mechanics & Rules = Foundation of Officiating Know your mechanics. If you have to think about where-to-go, you are in trouble. You cant rule on plays properly when you are too busy being concerned with mechanics. Communication is key. Face-off: Primary focus after a violation is to achieve a quick restart. Restart should be on the offensive side of mid-line. Trail official will watch for illegal sub. It is the players responsibility to pick up the ball and get ready for play.

Know where you are going, what to look for, etc. on face-offs. Dont over-hustle. Shooter/Passer should always be covered by an official. Late hits must be called – and again, no excuses in a 3-man game! Trail takes time in box. Transition through slowly, clean up box and benches, while at the same time being alert of ball movement on field. Multiple flags? Always conference. Dont assume its the same call. Know your sideline and end-line responsibilities! Dont call what isnt yours! After reporting foul, note time on scoreboard clock. Call out the return time of the penalized player to your partners. This may get you out of hot water down the line. BE PREPARED! Points of Emphasis
