Allow plenty of time to Warm Up.

SOWLUA had an official pull a hamstring last week. In this cold/damp weather; allow plenty of time to warm-up! That may mean getting to game earlier than 30 minutes prior to the start. Be sure to stretch after the game as well!

High School Regular Season Varsity Tie Breaking Procedure.
Overtime (Section 1.12.2) When the score is tied at the end of regular playing time for a regular season contest and overtime is to be played, both teams will have a 5-minute rest and toss a coin (visiting captain calls) for choice of ends. The alternate possession shall continue from regulation. The game will be restarted by a center draw. The winner will be decided by “sudden victory.” The team scoring the first goal wins the game. The single overtime period will be six minutes in length of stop-clock time (clock stops on every whistle). The clock will be stopped after 3 minutes of play in order for teams to change ends with no delay for coaching. No substitutions may occur at this time. The game will be restarted by a center draw. If the teams are still tied after six minutes have elapsed, the game will end in a tie. This overtime rule is modified from the US Lacrosse, Rule 4 – Time Factors and Scoring, Section 7, to a single overtime period.


Middle School and 5/6th grade A Level Game Procedures:​
* 25 Min running clock halves.
* Clock stops in the last 2 min of each half, and at timeouts.
* NO PASSING RULE (except after a free position in stead of a draw when                  USL requires one pass).
* Modified checking.
