CLEARS: A goal keeper has 10 seconds to clear the ball once she has gained possession. If a goalie leaves the crease area with the ball she cannot return to the crease with possession of the ball. Goal keepers are not allowed to cross the midfield line.
CHECKING RULES: Full checking for High School and 7/8 grade divisions, modified checking for 5/6 grade division.
ONE PASS RULE: Teams must make one pass once over the Midfield line before going to goal. This will slow down fast breaks and encourage passing.
A. If the attacking team intercepts a goalie clear after a saved shot or a goal they may go directly to goal. No additional pass required.
B. Any interception from the goalie or any other defensive player in the offensive zone, including a good check to cause a turnover, does not need an additional pass, however if the ball has cleared the offensive zone, marked by the restraining line, and a turnover occurs: one pass is required.
OUT OF BOUNDS:
A. Boarded Field: The ball may be played off the boards. The ball is considered out of bounds if it is lost over the boards, falls into the bench area, or touches a player not on the field. In accordance with US Lacrosse rules if it is obvious who threw the ball out of bounds the ball will change possession, and be awarded to the closest player on the opposing team.  If however it is unclear, a throw between one player from each team will be taken where the out of bounds occurred.
B. Non-Boarded Field with True Sidelines: US Lacrosse rules apply.
OFF SIDES: Only 4 players from the offense and 5 from the defense (this includes the goalie) will be allowed inside the restraining line. If the field is only lined with a mid-line and no restraining lines, the mid-line will be used as the off sides line. Indoor leagues require 2 players from each team behind the restraining line.
