IWLCA Voice of America Park

LEAD Training for officials who want to learn 3 person officiating and move up to college games. Great opportunity to learn and work with top US Lacrosse trainers.


April 20, 2015

DO NOT leave sticks on field during weather delay.

* All equipment should be removed from field during a weather delay. Tell coaches and captains during pregame, that players are to take their equipment with them to safe place, if game is delayed by weather. Officials should note where ball is, player with ball, if penalty setup, etc. Does not matter where players were behind restraining line or where they setup when play is resumed-no advantage for either team. Use honor system to trust girls to go to nearest spot when play resumes for those below restraining line. If coach objects-its safest way to resume play. This is not in rule book.

OVERTIME RULES-

* We use OVERTIME RULES that are different than what is listed in the US   

   Lacrosse Rule Book. The only level that plays overtime is Varsity.  All   

   other level games can end in a tie.
* Varsity will play one sudden victory, 3 minute overtime.  If  

   the game is still tied at the end of 3 minutes it will end in a tie.

​* (See further explanation on High School page)

Keep it fair.  Keep it safe.  Keep it fun!
