2018 GARDEN STATE BOX LACROSSE BATTLE
Rules and Information

Penalties and Safety

  • ABSOLUTELY no hitting from behind, whether it's on the boards or in the open floor. It will not be tolerated.
  • Box Lacrosse picks are allowed, but any aggressive picks, or cross-checks will result in a change of poison and/or two minute penalty
  • Cross-checking is allowed, but it should be done in a "push" fashion, meaning that you can place and steer a player. Any cross-check that is deemed unnecessary and jarring will result in a penalty.
  • Off ball interference will be called tightly. Please let your players know that they should focus on playing the ball, rather than taking the man.
  • All penalties will be two minutes served (unnecessary interference, hits in the back, cross-checks). Five minute penalties will be given for "boarding" against the boards, unnecessary roughness or aggressive high hits. The referees have the ability to eject a player if they believe the play was done with intent to injure.
  • Any fighting will result in ejection from the game. No questions asked.

In Game Rules
