All US Lacrosse Girls Rules Shall Apply
Major Changes for 2020:
Ejections: A player or coach ejected from a game by a referee will receive an automatic suspension of, at minimum, one game - to be served immediately in the team's next game. Additional game suspensions or other discipline is at the league’s discretion. Suspension does not apply for players “fouling out” due to accumulation of 3 personal fouls or 5 total penalty minutes.
- The whistle will blow when a ball hits the ground after a flag is thrown.
- No game will start until a Score Keeper, Timekeeper and 2 Field Commissioners are ready.
MS (follows USL 14U rules):
- Same as ES except 3 pass rule no longer required. 1v1 defense in midfield no longer applies.
- Transitional checking now allowed. Checks to head and neck and/or slash are mandatory cards.
