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
