Winter League Rules
2013-14 Boys Winter League Rules
Rules Overview

  • Games are 20-minute running time halves, with a five-minute half time.
  • Teams get one one-minute timeout per game. However, team time-outs do not stop game time.
  • Official time-outs (e.g. injury) do stop the game clock.
  • Penalties are running time except when suspended for a time out or the half. Technicals are 45 seconds, and personals run in 90-second increments therefore being time and a half. Penalty time begins when the player is in the box, and the official restarts play.
  • In case of a tie, the game’s outcome will be determined by a braveheart face-off. This entails one middie, and one goalie per team until a goal is scored. Before possession is called, the goalie must remain in his defensive area. Once possession is called, the goalie is not restricted to his half of the field.
  • Up to four long poles are allowed on the field. A long pole on faceoff is also allowed.
  • No ten-second or twenty-second advance-the-ball count.
  • Normal four-second goalkeeper count applies.
  • Stall warning in effect the last two minutes for the team ahead (“Keep it in!”)
  • No baiting, taunting or profanity
  • Fans are to watch from the far sideline.
  • Only coaching personnel and players are allowed on the near side.
  • Any player involved in a fight will be banned from Winter League with no refund and may receive a harsher penalty if the commissioner feels it is necessary.
  • No player may play for a different team except goalies.  Teams must agree before the start of the game to allow a substitute goalie. 
  • Less than 8 players on one team. Teams may play with 7 field players (2 attack, 3 midfield, 2 defenders) and a goalie and not forfeit.
  • If a team plays with a player not registered to play for their team.
  • If a team does not provide a goalie and the opposing team does not agree to let them use a hector.
  • Forfeits end in a 0-1 loss.
  • In the event team records are tied for playoff seeding, the tie breaker will go to goals scored against.

There are no practices or formal coaching for the winter league. 
Because of this, we do not encourage inexperienced players to join, but they will not be excluded.


The Utah Lacrosse Association offers a boys and girls winter league for high school age players. In this league, players register as free agents and are placed at random on a team. No team will have more than 6 players from one program on one team. Teams compete each Saturday in a 1 hour game at the University of Utah Spence Eccles Field House. Players are coached by current or former college players during games and do not practice during the week.

Registration opens late October and the season runs December-February. This is a wonderful opportunity for players to improve their skills during the black out period of the High School
