Rules I would like to see enacted, changed and/or enforced...

1. 8m, if the defense is called for a false start or a foul, the nearest hash is left open. Additional hashes will be left open for any additional fouls until a successful 8m can be completed.

2. Call the dangerous shot and dangerous follow through. I see way too many follow throughs hitting defenders and far too many to the head. Also, way too many balls being shot over a defender's head.

3. You play with the stick you draw with unless it is altered during play to no longer meet the required specifications. More simply put, no longer allow draw specific sticks unless you are going to play with it afterwards. If you choose to go the FOGO route, you have to eat the play clock as you sub.

4. Offsides is a green card offense and a 1 minute girl down penalty.

5. No checks are allowed to the bottom 1/3 of the offensive players stick. The checking and pulling at the bottom of the stick needs to stop. Any repetitive violations will be subject to a green card and a 1 minute girl down penalty and successive fouls after the first green card are considered a misconduct foul and should be issued a yellow card.

6. The defense, depending on the referees, seemed to be allowed to poke check at offensive players with the ball. This should stop as well. Enforce the existing rules that no checks towards the body are allowed.

7. Call the 3 second violation. Too many zone defenses are violating this rule without consequences.

8. Consider dropping the initial shot clock down to 75 seconds. I see very few shot clock violations and this will continue to speed up play.

9. There is more flopping than I have seen in the past. I also see goggles flying off of heads more often, with/without an actual foul occurring. Seems to me the holding of the head to draw a phantom foul/yellow card has progressed into other scenarios. Not sure how to deal with both scenarios, but additional emphasis should be added to try and address the flopping. It was a point of emphasis this season, but that did not solve the issue. Perhaps a more rigid definition for a block vs. a charge and what will be considered flopping and consideration for a green card for flopping (tough to administer).

10. I see some teams running illegal off ball screens as their entire offensive. Additional clarification and emphasis on calling these fouls needs to occur. You are giving these teams a huge advantage by not calling these fouls.

11. Any others?

I agree with the majority of your very thoughtful and spot on. Great points except #2. Why don’t you think a shot should not go over a defenders head. If a girl is 6ft she can safely shoot over the head of a 5’4” girls head. Way too many bad calls on fake charges and dangerous follow through. Defenders should not be stepping into the path of the ball. Not a fan of that call

I love all of the above. Let’s add proper training of refs by the cash rich USA Lacrosse. A lot of what you are asking for is just enforcing existing rules which you have stated.

If they don’t a big injury is going to happen.

Same rules for High school and College.

11. Push/check in the back on the player w possession 1-min green card (like a 30 - sec push in mens). Flagrant cross check still remains a 2-min yellow. Too many teams appear to use this “foul” to slow offensive transition w no consequence.

(PS - Love No.1)

Appreciate the discussion. I pulled the below from the NCAA 2022 rule book. This is just the mandatory card foul section but gets at what we are discussing. In my view Section 21.c should apply if shooting over a players body. Now, by the letter of the rule, it is a judgement call by the referee. If a player is close to their defender and can shoot over them in a safe manner and without hitting them with their stick on a follow through (a different foul) than I agree with you. Once there is distance between the shooter and the defender, then it is dangerous in my view. By rule, it is up to the shooter to ensure a safe propel, the defender has none. In terms of a dangerous follow through, section 21.a and b apply and again, the shooter is responsible for control of their stick, the defender has none for how they move and position themselves (other than a shooting space call).

Mandatory Card Fouls
SECTION 21. The following fouls necessitate the issuance of a card:

a. Dangerous Contact: No player’s stick may hit or cause their opponent’s
stick to hit the opponent’s head or neck. No player may cross check an
opponent’s shoulders or back from the rear position.
b. Dangerous Follow-Through: Following through with their stick in a
dangerous or uncontrolled manner at any time. This foul is inapplicable if
the goalkeeper moves into the path of the follow-through.
c. Dangerous Propelling: Propelling the ball with their stick in a dangerous
or uncontrolled manner at any time. Any shot directed at or taken without
regard to the positioning of a field player is dangerous propelling. This foul
is inapplicable if the goalkeeper moves into the path of the ball.
d. Illegal Body Ball in Goal Circle (Red Card): If a player, excluding the
goalkeeper, blatantly attempts to stop a shot on goal by playing the ball off
of one’s body while inside the goal circle.
e. Misconduct: The following are misconduct fouls:
1. Excessively rough, dangerous or unsportsmanlike play.
2. Repeated, persistent or flagrant violation of the rules.
3. Deliberately endangering the safety of an opposing player.
4. Baiting or taunting that is intended or designed to embarrass, ridicule or
demean others.
5. Excessive dissent or abusive language.
6. Coach leaving their coaching area. See Rule 1-14.
7. Any deliberate attempt to impede the officials from obtaining the goalscorer’s stick.
8. Any type of behavior that, in the official’s opinion, amounts to
misconduct.
f. Slash: Swinging the stick at an opponent with deliberate viciousness or
recklessness.
g. Suspended Player Substitutes (yellow card is issued to the head coach, see
Rules 6-36 and 6-37):
1. If a player who receives two yellow cards enters the field of play.
2. If a player who receives a red card enters the field of play.

Ok, will give it a shot


#1-OK. Problem is it will take more time to set up players. All fields should be properly lined in order for the girls to get in proper position quicker. The game is SOOOO slow with all the time it takes to position girls.

#2-There is enough subjective calls already

#3-Who cares about sticks. It typically doesnt slow down game and all teams have access to same equipment.

#4-1 minute penalty for stepping over line-Not needed. Although I do agree that teams will purposely go offsides to stop a fast break.

#5-Have refs enforce rules already in place although repeated violations can be assessed a green card.

#6-see #5

#7-Full agreement. Watch SBU. As usual SBU coach pushes boundaries and continues to get away with it and funny thing everyone knows it.

#8-Agree

#9-Agree-except we have bad refs making many judgement calls and this just adds to the number of bad calls that will occur. If refs are in agreement in some instances then call the flop.

#10-Just like in basketball the "cutter" setting "moving" screens is now the basis for many offensive schemes. Again.... do we want incompetent refs calling this. Agree with premise but dont see it as enforceable

Refs need to call offensive charges much more for the protection of offensive and defensive players. Way too much contact initiated by offensive players.

Most important and related to above.... stop rewarding bad plays such as running into double/triple teams and getting rewarded with 8m free position and calls against defensive players. Maybe use "common sense" when making these calls.

Stony Brooks zone is very good but if JS (or any coach for that matter) really had confidence in their athletes they would play man to man. One of the reasons the Stony Brook Zone works so well is because there is a lack of quality coaching in women's lacrosse. Good coaching and disciplined, high IQ players will beat a zone just about every time. Pretty sure Maryland, North Carolina, Northwestern and BC all play Man to Man Defense and I do not think anyone can argue that they are not the 4 best programs in the country. That said, I might mix things up vs UNC....

I agree with many of your rule suggestions. A couple of things I would like to see, unless a player actually has the ball in their stick they should not get an 8M shot. How many times do you see a terrible pass into the middle or a loose groundball and the ref calls a foul. Free shot?? Almost like basketball, you get a free throw when in the act of shooting. In this case you at least need to have the ball in your possession.

I also agree on the dangerous propellent and shooting over a players head. These young ladies are so athletic now and can make these shots. If you let the girls continue to shoot like that then you should also stop with some of the lame obstruction fouls.

Good Attackers push .500 or better shooting percentage and they put close to .800 of their shots on goal maybe .775 or better. Selfish players absolutely hurt their team in more ways than one. Do you really believe that good coaches allow selfish play?

Yes struck a nerve , when people post gibberish like your post it’s bothersome .Good coaches encourage players to be selfish all the time . Do you not think when Skane is playing Amonte does not encourage her to keep the ball and go the goal even when a teammate may be open , or do you not believe Levy has encouraged Ortega to be more selfish as she tends to not be that type of player but you want the ball in her stick more often than not .Spallina was telling Massera to keep shooting against UNC even thou she was 2 for 11 and taking some low percentage shots because she is their best player .
Shots on goal is a silly stat , any player can throw the ball into the goalies stick .

Let me help you out.

Definition of "Selfish" - : concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself : seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others.

Your lack of understanding of the game is rivaled by your limited understanding of the meaning of words.

Doing what the coach wants is not selfish. Playing within a teams offensive set, scheme or specific play is not being selfish. Making the right play (including going to the goal and shooting) in settled situations, unsettled situations or transition is not selfish when the situation dictates it.

As for your obsession with "Shot's on Goal" being a silly stat it would suggest that you do not understand the simple fact that you can not score if the shot is not on goal. Your ignorance implies that you believe coaches would rather have players missing the cage with their shots. The reality is that good Attackers do what their coaches want, play as part of a team, help their teammates and make the players around them better all while taking high percentage quality shots that are on goal.

Career Shooting Percentage and Shots on Goal Percentage....

****Shooting % --- SOG %

North - .558 - .803

Ortega - .586 - .786

Cordingley - .481 - .791

Scane - .542 - .774

Tyrrell - .564 - .807

Hawryschuk - .499 - .782

Sears - .511 - .790

Rosenzwieg - .487 - .737

Masera - .536 - .791

Selfish players will not have numbers anywhere near the numbers that the above players have. Most likely they will put below .650% of their shots on goal and they will shoot below .400%. The really selfish ones will be below .375%.

Yes, in the end, selfish players always hurt their team. They get in the way of their teammates, they shoot when the should not, they hold the ball too long, they turn the ball over too often, they do not occupy their defender while others are dodging, they do not make the "one more" pass when they should, they hinder their teammates, they take foolish shots etc... they try to go to goal almost every time they get the ball, they have no situational awareness and a limited lacrosse IQ. The reason the selfish players numbers are low is because they take shots that should never be taken given the situation on the field at the time. Will they score some goals? Yes, but their selfish play will come back to hurt their team when it matters most in close and in meaningful games vs quality opponents i.e. Playoffs etc... Watch as they take an ill-advised shot and the goalie makes an easy save and the ball goes the other way for a goal. Watch as they run to the goal and shoot when their team is down a player instead of killing the penalty, watch as they try to force it when the right thing to do is move the ball.... The list goes on and on and it's ugly to watch, it's bad lacrosse and it does in fact hurt the team. No, good coaches do not encourage or allow selfish play.

It does drive me nuts on the club level watching girls go 1 on 3, lose the ball and then get rewarded with the free position. Full disclosure, my daughter gets those as well.

Have multiple daughters who are defenders. OP's point is someone like Detweiler gets away with obvious illegal checks that are called on other defenders. (the latest qoute "she is a caused turnover machine") Officials are not consistent and even more disturbing knowledgeable of the rules. Defenders have toughest job in wlax. Stop rewarding: charges by offensive players, rewarding offensive players running into double/triple teams, rewarding free position for player who doesnt catch a pass, free position for players fighting for ground balls within the fan and of course the "head bob"/flop. If officials make calls as written in rule book offensive players wont continue to try and manipulate the rules. As far as SBU zone. STOP. Spallinas players are not within stick length and would be called for 3 seconds 10-20 times during a game if officiated correctly.

100 percent wrong on number 3 access to same sticks. Gait lacrosse only gave the Gait Draw stick 2 to Gait teams for the tournament. Great job US lacrosse approving anything as long as it comes with a check. On the flip side thanks for Gait trying to move womens game forward as the other brands do nothing.

Any repetitive violations will be subject to a green card and a 1 minute girl down penalty and successive fouls after the first green card are considered a misconduct foul and should be issued a yellow card.

6. The defense, depending on the referees, seemed to be allowed to poke check at offensive players with the ball. This should stop as well. Enforce the existing rules that no checks towards the body are allowed.

7. Call the 3 second violation. Too many zone defenses are violating this rule without consequences.

8. Consider dropping the initial shot clock down to 75 seconds. I see very few shot clock violations and this will continue to speed up play.

9. There is more flopping than I have seen in the past. I also see goggles flying off of heads more often, with/without an actual foul occurring. Seems to me the holding of the head to draw a phantom foul/yellow card has progressed into other scenarios. Not sure how to deal with both scenarios, but additional emphasis should be added to try and address the flopping. It was a point of emphasis this season, but that did not solve the issue. Perhaps a more rigid definition for a block vs. a charge and what will be considered flopping and consideration for a green card for flopping (tough to administer).

10. I see some teams running illegal off ball screens as their entire offensive. Additional clarification and emphasis on calling these fouls needs to occur. You are giving these teams a huge advantage by not calling these fouls.

11. Any others?

How about if you ask for a stick check and it is deemed legal the other team gets possession.
