TECHNICAL FOULS EMLOA DEVELOPED BY MATT CROTEAU
What is a technical foul? Technical fouls are those of a less serious nature than personal fouls. Include all violations of the rules of lacrosse except those specifically listed under personal fouls. Time serving, 30 second penalty if ball was in possession of team that was offended. Turnover if team with possession commits technical foul. Award possession to offended team if ball was loose at time of foul (Play-on situation).
Crease Violation Goalkeeper Interference Interfering with goalie while defensive team possesses ball outside of crease (flag down, slow whistle). Attackman runs through crease while defensive team possesses ball outside of crease (flag down, slow whistle). Interference with goalie while ball is in crease. – Possession – play on – ball awarded at midfield if pass not completed – No possession – play on – ball awarded 20 yards lateral if no possession gained.
Holding A player may not hold an opponent with his crosse. A player may not step on the crosse of opponent. A player may not hold with the free hand. Reminders – Equal pressure from rear is not a hold. – Crosse against crosse is not a hold unless player is pinning crosse of his opponent against his opponent’s body. – Both hands must remain on stick when checking.
Illegal Offensive Screen Player must be stationary when setting picks. Stick should be straight up and down and within his body. No leaning or stepping into player.
Conduct Foul Coach/player entering field without permission or reason to do so. Use of artificial aids (electronic devices, megaphones) to communicate with players. Argue with officials. Swearing Taunting other players.
Interference Interfering with the free movement of an opponent except when that opponent has the ball, or both players are within 5 yards of a loose ball or a ball in flight. Occurs on loose balls when one player scoops ball and other player still engages opponent Also occurs in front of crease in settled situations.
Offsides Count forward coming up as trail. 6 offensive players and 7 defensive players (6 + goalie) allowed. Check substitution area – may be players there and team is not offsides unless player subs on wrong side of field. Stay at midfield for a couple of seconds and make sure you have it right! Team in possession is offsides: turnover. Restart at midfield no matter when it is called (free clear) Team without possession offsides: flag down, slow whistle. – B1 goes offsides and returns to proper half of field, then goes offsides again. RULING – Same player going offsides twice is only one technical foul.
Pushing Player will not shove or thrust opponent from rear. Not a violent blow. Permitted from front or side as long as within 5 yards of loose ball or opponent has possession. Both hands must be on crosse.
Stalling Team is ahead with under 2 minutes in game. Team is obviously keeping ball from play. Only occurs in offensive attack box. Violation is called when ball exits attack area or player steps out of attack area with ball. Either team is entitled to retrieve ball if pass is deflected off defensive stick and ball exits attack area. Offensive team regains possession – they have 10 seconds to get it back in and stalling warning continues.
Warding Off A player may not use his free hand, arm or any part of his body to gain advantage, push or control the direction of the movement of the crosse or body of the player applying the check. A player may protect his crosse with his free hand provided he does not attempt to engage the crosse with his free hand.
Withholding Ball From Play When a loose ball is on the ground, a player may not lie on the ball or trap it with his crosse longer than is necessary to pick it up.
Illegal Procedure Covers most technical fouls plus: – Leaving penalty area before penalty time elapses – Participating in play from out of bounds – Failure to give five yards on a restart – Calling a third team time out – Having more than four long crosses in game
Remaining subjects Failure to advance – 20 seconds from defensive zone to zone 3 and 10 seconds from zone 3 to zone 4. Substitution violation – players entering field early. Delay of game – after goal scored or upon turnover, rolling/throwing ball away (falls under illegal procedure).
