New women’s lacrosse rule book out

February 9, 2011

The 2011 US Lacrosse Women’s Rule Book is out. Click on the picture or DOWNLOAD IT HERE!

The major changes in the women’s game were safety-related, upping the penalties for rough/dangerous play:

  • Anyone receiving two yellow cards in a single game must sit out of the team’s next game.
  • Anyone receiving a red card must sit out of the team’s next two games. For youth teams using Level FC rules where a check to the head is a mandatory red card, a player will continue to sit out one game if a red card is received.
  • Once a team receives its third card of the game the team will play shorthanded for the remainder of the game. They will lose an additional player each time another card is received.
  • The head coach will be responsible for the behavior of personnel affiliated with her team, including all assistant coaches, and will receive any cards related to lack of bench decorum.
