3 Technical Fouls Loose Ball - Play On During a loose-ball technical foul, crease violation, or goalkeeper interference Visually and verbally signal “Play-on!” Withhold the whistle until the play ends or advantage is gained or lost. A guideline is no more than 1 or 2 seconds. If the offended team Gains possession, give verbal & visual indication - “Blue” Does not gain possession award the ball at the spot where the ball is or, if the ball is inside the attack area, in the alley next to the attack area. Play On!Loose BallPushBlue
4 Technical Fouls Loose Ball - Play On For goalkeeper interference without possession Withhold the whistle until goalie gains possession, else award the ball in alley. For goalkeeper interference with possession Withhold the whistle until the goalie completes an outlet pass or leaves the crease.
5 Technical Fouls By Team in Possession If the team that has possession commits a technical foul… Immediate whistle and award the ball to the opponents at the spot where the ball is or the alley if the ball is in the attack area. Illegal ScreenWhite
6 Flag Down Slow Whistle (FDSW) Fouls (personal or technical) with possession by the team that was fouled: Throw the flag straight up into the air (10 to 15 feet). Yell “Flag down!”, “Flag down!”, “Flag down!” Other official should acknowledge “Flag is down!” Allow the offensive team (with possession) to complete their play. Slow whistle mechanic. Sound your whistle to stop play when the rules require you to. (GOODIE) Make certain all residual action among the players has ceased.

16 Equipment Check Procedure Have a plan for four equipment checks, but be flexible. Reschedule check if there is a penalty on a goal. Check a player of the team coming to your end of the field. A good rule of thumb is to check an impact player. Goal scorer, key middie or longpole Do not check goalie. There is no rule that says a player cannot be checked twice but be careful with this. Coach gets one equipment check request per game. Gets a 2nd check if illegal equipment is found. Check that all required equipment is present and check legality of crosse. Crosse does not have to be in the game to be checked. Do stick checks at midfield, facing away from the teams Treat fouls on opposing teams as simultaneous dead-ball fouls
