Youth Rules

The SALI Rules will use the following rules from US Lacrosse with the following exceptions:


US Youth Lacrosse Rules


Exceptions:


Field Size: Grades 5-6 will use a 110 yard x 60 yard field

Goal Size: All goal will be full size goals

Players on Field: Grades 3-4 will play 5 v 5 with goalies 

Game Time: 20 minute running halves

​Overtime: 3 v 3 Braveheart, no long sticks, goalies may not cross midline.

Players are limited to playing with one team at the SALI Tournament. Teams must submit a roster prior to the first game at the tournament central tent. Teams found to be playing a player who is on another teams roster may forfeit any games that player played in.

Exemptions:

·         Jv players are permitted to swing up to varsity.

·         Teams who would be forced to forfeit games due to injuries can request permission to transfer players from another teams roster. This must be agreed to by a tournament director  before the game starts, and the player must be added to the team’s roster. (In this situation we rely heavily on the integrity of coaches to act in the spirit of sportsmanship this tournament was founded on. Teams who do not demonstrate good integrity and sportsmanship may not be invited back to SALI in the future.)


Bracket Seeding: Seeding for bracket play relies on four objective tie breakers. Your record will be the first factor in seeding. Within records, all two-way ties in pool play will be broken first by head to head match-ups and then by goals allowed. Three-way or more way ties will NOT utilize head-to-head tie breaking and will skip to goals allowed. If records and goals allowed are tied, we will utilize goal differential (7 point cap). If all tie-breaks are tied, the tournament director will flip a coin. Any necessary coin-flips will be available for public viewing at the Coaches’ Game.
