    Weather Policy

    We play in all weather except lightning.  Lightning will delay things 30 minutes but we will still try to get the game in if the lightning was earlier in the afternoon.  A passing storm at 2 PM does not cancel the league. If it is raining who cares this is not baseball we play. If they get muddy so be it.  Kids love mud (at least my kids do) and the washing machine cleans up their clothes.

    Should a week get cancelled due to lightning we will do the best we can to work with the facilities manager to schedule a make up date.  However, please understand that that may not always be possible.  We do not refund a percentage of the registration fee if weather cancels a week. 



    Fans and Spectator Code Of Conduct

    Burning River Lacrosse asks that as a parent, be involved in a positive way.  Attend your child's games as often as you can. Cheer for all the kids on the team. However please remember the following:

    1. Please don't shout advice to your player during the game.
    Shout encouragement? You bet. A steady stream of technique suggestions, though, has no value.

    2. Don’t harass the referee.
    Sometimes a call is hard to take for whatever reason. Such times are tests of emotional control. If a player can learn to bite their lip and move on, a parent can learn to sit quietly for a moment and let the emotion pass. Learning to cope with disappointment is a valuable life skill.

    3. Don't razz the other team's players or your own son The other team's players (or your child) should be considered off limits. Yelling at or deriding someone else's child (or your own) is a shameful practice for an adult at a sporting event. In that vein, anyone found shouting, yelling, berating, and/or belittling a player will be removed from the site immediately.  They will then be duct taped to a tree and all the kids will be allowed to take shots at them until their mood changes.  Seriously though let the kids play without having to worry about getting yelled at.  They should develop a love of the game which will only come if they can relax and enjoy themselves.



    Game Rules And Regulations

    The following are the rules and regulations our leagues are officiated under:

    1. All games are officiated under High School rules
    It does players no good to learn to play the game under different rules then they will have to play for their local High schools / town teams. Therefore, the officials enforce the following High School rules

    • 20 second count to clear the defensive end.
    • 10 second count to get the ball in the offensive box.

    2. Game Duration
    Unless otherwise noted, games are two (2) twenty three (23) minute running halves. Halftime is three (3) minutes long. Each team may take one(1) timeout per game. Timeouts are one (1) minute long. NO TIMEOUTS ARE ALLOWED IN THE LAST 3 MINUTES OF A GAME.

    3. Faceoffs (At the start of each half only)
    Face-off commands are a) down, set, and whistle. Note we only have faceoffs at the start of the game and second half. Jumping the face-off whistle is loss of possession. The faceoff player does not have to leave the field.

    4. Penalties
    All time serving penalties will result in Man-up opportunities not fast breaks. Because we use running time game clocks all penalties will be 50% longer than they would be in a stop clock game.

    • Minor Penalties -Any player (except the goalie) shall be ruled off the floor for one minute and 30 seconds.
