Timeouts: There will be no team timeouts during the SALI tournament.

Long Stick Interpretation: Many coaches have inquired about the use of long sticks at the youth level.   This off-season, the Sisters Outlaws Lacrosse Committee has explored many options for youth boys to play with long sticks.  The decision of the Committee is to allow Long sticks to be used in both 'A' and 'B' divisions at the 7/8 level and at the 'A' division only at the 5/6 level.

Goalies may not cross the mid-line.

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


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.
