A yellow (2 mins) or red card (4 mins) to the coach counts towards the team fouls and a player must be removed.
Players receiving 2 yellows will not have to sit the following game, but it will be reported to the tournament director and subsequent cards could result in suspension.
A coach or player receiving a red card could be required to sit an additional game.
All decisions on penalties for cards will be at the discretion of the tournament committee and the head official. Updated: April 1, 2021 (over)
2021 Fall Rules Sheet - con’t
************************************************ If required COVID-19 Game Start
To Start Game:
A coin toss to determine the first possession - coaches and officials handle the coin toss, maintaining 6 feet apart.
Teams will start in a standard set up: 4 defenders behind the line, 3 midfielders between the restraining lines and 4 attackers behind the line. Teams may go to a 5, 3, 3 - but no greater change
After a Goal
The GK will pick the ball up using her stick and roll the ball back to the center circle. A midfielder will pick up the ball, using her stick, and stand on the center line where the draw would normally take place. Both teams will fully reset to the 4-3-4 or the 5-3-3 - and once the ball is set and the teams are set, the official will blow the restart whistle.
The free position at center to start the game, the half, and after each goal will be an indirect free position.
