Official’s Training Youth Lacrosse 2015
2 Agenda Session 1 Questions on pre-work Rule 1: The Game, Field, and Equipment Rule 2: Game Personnel Rule 3: Time Factors Personal Fouls Technical Fouls Session 2 Mechanics Fouls, FDSW, Play-On Penalty Enforcement
3 Rule 1: The Field Circle the corners where the seven cones should be placed. What is line A? Center Line What is line B? Restraining Line What is line C? End Line What is line D? Wing Line What is Box E? Special Sub Area What is line F? Sideline What is line G? Limit Line G A B C C B D D E F F GGG 110 yards 60 yar ds 20 yards In the 2014 season, the size of the scorer’s table area increased to 20 yards to allow more space for players to get on and off the field.
4 Rule 1: Player Equipment Stick measurements are made from tip to tail. LLegal short sticks measure 40” to 42” LLegal long sticks measure 52” to 72” AAlways check for an end cap at the bottom of the stick. NNOTE: GLLOA does not teach nor recommend measuring goalie sticks. Legal NFHS stick heads measurements. WWidth of lacrosse stick head? 6 ½” LLength of lacrosse stick head? 10” These topics will be covered in more detail in training.
5 The NFHS rules specify that any crosse used in a faceoff may not have tape on the plastic throat of the crosse head. The NFHS rules allow for electronic equipment to be used by coaches and non-playing team members. However, it cannot be used to communicate with on field players. Rule h now stipulates that eye shade may be used as long as it is a single, solid stroke that does not include words, logos, symbols, or numbers. These topics will be covered in more detail in training.
Name the mandatory equipment: 1. Helmet with Face Mask 2. Mouthpiece 3. Gloves 4. Shoulder Pads 5. Arm Pads 6. Players may not wear jewelry, except for medial alerts that are taped to their bodies. Name the goalie equipment requirements: 1. Which of the above 5 are optional for goalies? Shoulder pads & arm pads 2. Goalies also have to wear chest and throat protectors. These topics will be covered in more detail in training.
7 Rule 2: Game Personnel MMinimally, how many players must a team have present to start a game? 10 WWhat is the maximum number of long sticks a team can have on the field? 4 CCan a team play with less than 10 players? Yes TThe In-Home player is listed first in the scorebook and is always a starter TThe home team coach supplies a proper field, the time keeper, score keeper, and ball retrievers or spare lacrosse balls on the end lines.
8 A major point of emphasis specified by the NFHS is the use of NOCSAE standard game balls to improve the safety for the players. In 2014, the NFHS changed Rule 2, Section 6 stating that officials authority begins when they arrive on the field and ends when they leave the immediate playing facility. These topics will be covered in more detail in training.
9 Rule 3: Time Factors TThe regulation playing time of a game shall be 4 periods of 12 minutes. NNOTE: The above statement applies to IHSLA Varsity games. In the Frosh/Soph and JV games, all regular periods last 10 minutes. AAfter the first half, if the score differential reaches 12 goals, the clock is only stopped for time outs or injuries. This is also called “running time”. TThere is a 2 minute interval between the 1st and 2 nd as well as the 3 rd and 4 th periods. BBetween the 2 nd and 3 rd periods, there is a 10 minute interval, unless another time is mutually agreed to by the coaches. IIn the event of a tie, there will be a 2 minute interval before starting overtime. OOvertime periods last 4 minutes with 2 minute intervals between them. The first score will win the game.

27 Pushing A player cannot push an opponent from the behind. Pushing is permitted from the front or side when an opponent: has possession of the ball or is within 5 yards of a loose ball. To be legal, pushing must be done with either closed hand, shoulder or forearm, with both hands on the crosse. No foul if player contacted turns just before contact

29 Withholding ball from play A player cannot: lie on a loose ball or lie on his opponents body or arms trap ball with his crosse longer than is necessary for him to control and pick up the ball in one continuous motion. Most likely on a face off.
30 Warding off A player in possession of the ball: May - protect his crosse with his hand, arm or other part of his body when his opponent makes a play to check his crosse. May not - use his free hand, arm or any other part of his body to hold or push the crosse or body of the player applying the check.

33 Failure to Advance Advancing the ball beyond midfield 20 second count: Once the defensive team gains possession of the ball in it’s defensive half of the field, they have 20 seconds to advance the ball across midfield. Role of Trail Official: Remain even with or slightly behind the ball as it advances out of the defensive half of the field. The Trail has 4 second goalie possession in the crease. The Trail has the timing of the 20-second count using his timer Primary responsibility for offsides
34 Failure to Advance Advancing the ball into the attack area The Lead has the initial 10-second count as the ball moves across midfield into Zone 3. 10 second count: Once a team has advanced or gained possession of the ball in its offensive end of the field they have 10 seconds to get the ball into the attack area.
35 20 seconds to clear ZONE 1 Coaches Area Table ZONE 4 ZONE 3 10 seconds into the attack zone 1X Advancing the ball
36 Offside Balanced field concept A team is considered offside when more than six players in its offensive half of the field more than seven players in its defensive half of the field. Count forward! If you have 7 players on attack - one is offside. Take your time, you can always wave off a goal. Be careful with subs going on and off or players standing near sideline Count forward. There is no free-clear for offsides
37 Illegal Offensive Screening An offensive player cannot make contact with a defensive player with the purpose of blocking a defensive player from the man he is playing. The offensive player cannot use his crosse to impede the defensive player. Just as in basketball: The offensive player must be stationary There must be contact for a screen to be illegal Penalty 30 seconds or turnover if by A
38 Crease Violation Attacking team in the crease or on the line. An offensive player’s body can never be in his opponent's crease. (Stick can be inside without contact with goalie or equipment.) If an offensive player dives or jumps and his own momentum carries him into the crease any goal is disallowed. Defense cannot enter their own crease with possession of the ball. Watch goalie’s rear foot when raking the ball outside the crease Passing or placing the ball into the crease is permitted. No player may remain in the crease with possession of the ball longer than four seconds. Penalty 30 seconds or turnover if by A

41 Conduct foul NON-player foul Coach enters field of play or leaves the coaches area during play Players leave the players area during play Coach, assistant or team personnel cannot object by arguing or gesturing to a decision
42 Interference A player cannot interfere with the movement of an opponent, except when that opponent: has possession of the ball, the ball is in flight and within 5 yards of the players, or both players are within 5 yards of a loose ball. Most likely After a loose ball is scooped In front of the crease, screening or protecting the goalie for the outlet pass.
43 Stalling A team may be warned to “Keep It In” when it is keeping the ball from play, (not attacking the goal), and the defense is playing the ball, or there are 2 minutes or less in the game (mandatory); team leading must “KII” The offensive team loses possession of the ball unless it leaves the goal area by: a shot on goal or any touch by the defensive team. The stall warning remains in effect until: a goal is scored, the defensive team gains possession of the ball or the period ends resulting in a face-off. Final 2 minutes Keep track of who is leading Let them know the warning is coming Remind everyone if a stall warning remains in effect after a restart.
44 New Official’s Training Session 2
46 Face-off Mechanics
47 Face-off Mechanics Make sure the box and clock is right, know if a penalty can expire during faceoff, count the players. Visually check that face-off players have: * No tape on head of crosse Hands around the shaft. All fingers touching the ground. Gloves not touching the plastic head of the stick. Sticks parallel to center line. Heads of sticks vertical. Ball centered. Body to left of crosse. Everything out of the cylinder. Strings not touching the ball. Sticks and gloves up to but not touching the 4-inch center line. “Down”, (quick adjustment if necessary), “Set”, (variable pause), “Whistle”
48 Face-off Mechanics Face-off Official Watch for movement, pinning, kicking, withholding Ends when possession or ball crosses restraining line (Verbal “play”) Wind & verbal “Possession – Blue”. All players are released. If violation, signal, verbally award ball, point & quickly restart at Center X Wing official Watch for wing line violation No contact until within 5 yards of ball Watch both wing lines Watch for restraining line violation. Yell “Possession Color!” and wind arm when either team gains possession.
52 Face-off exceptions There is no face-off if Extra-man situation with possession A play-on indicates possession Flag down situation (creating an extra-man) If the flag down creates an even situation, at the end of a period, there is a faceoff Dead ball foul between periods
53 Lead Trail Positioning Settled Situation GLE
54 Coverage Around Goal in Settled Situations Lead: Has his goal as his primary responsibility. Try to stay near goal line extended (GLE) unless there is a contested play near the end line or must move to get a better angle on the play. Always return to GLE before whistling ball into play. Move in and out with ball. Close down 1-2 yards forward to be close to the crease, see the goalline and without interfering with play. Do not allow players to get between you and your sideline. Has end line responsibility on all shots (chase contested shots to the end line!).
55 Coverage Around Goal in Settled Situations Trail: Primary responsibility is offsides. Watches action in his area. Reports fouls to the table. Can help with crease violations. Has most restarts. Watches the shooter & passer for a late hit. Always know shooter’s number.
56 Who Watches What? T T is “on” when ball is in the brown area L L is “on” when ball is in yellow area
57 Who Watches What? T T is “on” when ball is in the brown area L L is “on” when ball is in yellow area
58 Who Watches What? T T is “on” when ball is in the brown area L L is “on” when ball is in yellow area
59 Who Watches What? T T is “on” when ball is in the brown area L L is “on” when ball is in yellow area
60 Scoring Goal Loose ball passes completely across goalline Shot or kick Goal Disallowed Period ends before ball crosses goalline Illegal crosse Offense player illegally in crease Attack player jumps or dives into crease Penalty by team on offense Head comes off crosse Contact with goalie, goal, or netting before ball crosses goalline
61 Goal Scored Mechanics – Lead Official Sounds whistle Runs to the near pipe, turns to face “action” in front of the goal, and gives the goal signal. Retrieves the ball from the goal (don’t allow goalie tantrums!). Tosses the ball to trail official. Jogs to and takes a position at the end of the wing line. Write the number of the scorer on the scorecard.
62 Goal Scored Mechanics – Trail Official Watches the shooter for a late hit Waits for the goal signal by the Lead (don’t sound your whistle unless the Lead has missed the goal). Watches the crease for fouls. Moves in and watch action in front of the crease. Tells the Lead the jersey number of the scorer. Gets the ball from the lead and jogs to the center of the field. Steps over midfield and turns around to face the end of the field where the goal was just scored. Places the ball on the ground and straddles it while he writes the number of the player scoring the goal on his scorecard. Watches wing official for ready. Conducts face-off duties.
63 Goal Scored
64 Transition Trail becomes Lead Lead becomes Trail Goalie makes the save. Break to midline. Stay ahead of the ball. GLE responsibility- get there! First 10 second count into attack box (Zone 4). Move “in” and “out” (GLE). Goalie makes the save. Goalie 4 second count; start the 20 second timer. Stay behind the ball; you ultimately have off-sides. 60 yard eyes- find the shooter. Stay with ball if ball clears along your sideline.
65 Lead Trail Previous Lead is new Trail, and previous Trail is new Lead Lead and Trail Positions Positions on a Clear from the GLE
66 Restart Quick Restarts Examples Loose ball fouls Change of possession fouls Shots out of bounds on endline Goalie gets 5 seconds to reset. Make sure all players are 5 yards away. Tell the players where the ball should be and use a 5- second count. Start as soon as the ball is near the right place and in possession.
67 Restart Slower Restarts Examples After goals After reporting time-serving penalties After time-outs or starting a period Use your 20 second timer Before the whistle Count the field Check the clock Check with partner
68 ZONE 4 20 yards lateral to Goal: always in the ALLEY Restart – Zone 4
69 Coaches Area Table Restart Trail blows ball into play
70 Coaches Area Table Restart Lead blows ball into play
