What Are The Rules Of Lacrosse?
Lacrosse is an energetic and fast-paced sport that encompasses agility, speed, and strength. The primary objective of this game is to have a player shoot the lacrosse ball into the opposing team’s goal.
Each player is outfitted with a helmet, protective gloves and arm pads, shoulder pads, and the most important piece of equipment, the crosse, more commonly known as a lacrosse stick. There are two types of lacrosse sticks that are permitted in a game – the short crosse and the long crosse. The short crosse has a total length of 40-42 inches, the shaft, which is the long metal stick that the player holds is 30 inches, with the head of the crosse being 10-12 inches. The long crosse has a total length between 52-72 inches, with the same head dimension as the short crosse. Defensive players will use the long crosse, while the offensive players use the short crosse. There is also a specific crosse used for the goalies. The goalie crosse is between 40-72 total inches with a maximum head length of 16 ½ inches and a head width of 10-12 inches. Teams are permitted to have one goalie crosse at a time. There are ten players per team that are allowed to play on the field at one time.
Starting the Game
Lacrosse is played on a rectangular field, usually 110 yards long and 60 yards wide. The boundaries of those parameters will be distinct with white or colored lines.
Right before the game starts, the captain of each team will have to engage in the coin toss. The coin toss decides which team will choose what goal they want to defend first or give the team first alternate possession. First alternate possession is when the referees cannot determine which team had possession of the ball when the game is stopped, they will give it to the team that won the coin toss if they choose that for the toss. Once the toss is completed, the remaining players of each team will go and stand in their positions on the field.
A faceoff is used to begin play of the game. A faceoff occurs at mid-field line in the center of the field, and , standing on their side of the field with the ball sandwiched between them. They will battle to gain possession of the ball after the referee blows their whistle. They gain possession by using the back of their crosse and sweeping the ball towards them using quickness and strength. The other two midfielders from each team are lined up on either side of the faceoff midfielder. They are the only players to help their team win possession of the ball at the faceoff, once the whistle blows as well. Once one team gets possession of the ball, the game is in play.
After the faceoff, the rest of the players can aim to possess the ball. Once the offensive players possess the ball, they have 20 seconds to advance the ball to their attacking half of the field, which is the side of the opposing team’s goal. If an offensive player has the ball for more than 20 seconds, it will result in a turnover, and the other team will receive possession. Players can run or pass the ball in their attacking half, including behind the opposing team’s goal. If a player is holding the ball in their crosse and steps outside of the marked boundaries, the game will be quickly paused for the player to put down the ball, and for the opposing team to receive possession. If no player has possession of the ball and it goes out of bounds, possession will be awarded to the opposite team of whoever last touched it.
To gain points for a team, a player must shoot the lacrosse ball into the opposing team’s goal. If a player misses the goal and the ball is out of bounds, the player closest to the ball receives possession, regardless of the team they play for, and the play is resumed from where the ball went out of bounds. A goal can also count if a player shoots the ball and it is deflected off another player, landing into the goal.
In order for teams not to be penalized, players must try not to go offsides. In lacrosse, a team is offside when the team has more than six players on their attacking half of the field or when it has seven players on their defensive half of the field. It is based on the number of players, not the position a player plays. Players can run off bounds momentarily if the player realizes that they would then be considered an offside, but must return back to the field immediately, and no foul will be called. If a team is considered offsides for the attacking half, and a goal is scored, then the goal will not count. However, if a team is offside on the defensive half and a goal is scored, the goal counts.
What are the penalties in lacrosse?
Penalties are given by a referee to players or coaches when certain actions are displayed. The penalties listed include offsides, holding, slash, push in the back, crosscheck, unsportsmanlike conduct, and unnecessary roughness. A holding penalty is when a player restricts the movement of another player. A slash is when a player uses their crosse to hit anywhere other than the stick, gloves, and arms. A crosscheck is when a player uses the metal shaft of the crosse to hit another player.
What happens after a penalty in lacrosse?
After a penalty is given out by a referee, the penalized team will be a “man down.” A man down means that the penalized team will be playing with one less player for a certain amount of time, dependent on the type of penalty and severity. The length of time can be between 30 seconds to 3 minutes. During this time, the game will be played 5-on-6, a clear advantage for the team not penalized. Additionally, possession of the ball is awarded to the other team in their offensive half.
What is a substitution in lacrosse?
A substitution in lacrosse refers to swapping one player from the game for a player on the same team that is on the sidelines ready to play. Substitutions, more known as subbing, is a practice that happens often during the game to give players a rest. Substitutions in lacrosse can happen without any pause of the game. To substitute, the players ready to go into the game must be waiting in the substitution box, and cannot step onto the field until the player leaving the field steps into the substitution box.
Butt Ends, Shafts, And Tape: 2013 Rules Update
Earlier this week I brought up a couple of issues with the new rules that I saw as problematic. Today, I was able to speak with John Hind, the Chair of the Men’s Rules Committee, and he cleared the issues up for me quickly, concisely, and in a very friendly tone. It was a great conversation, and I learned a ton in only 15 minutes.
Let’s take a look at the rules one by one…It’s ALL legal…
1) 3.5″ Shaft Circumference
This rule is OUT. Players can once again use butt ends, donuts, tape snakes or whatever they want. The only restriction is that the tape on the stick can NOT touch the plastic of the head, unless the player in question is a goalie. They are exempt from the tape rules. There must be a gap between the head and the tape for all other players. Simple, easy, and effective. Well, unless you are a face off guy…
2) Face Off Sticks
Players that take face offs must put contrasting colored tape on their shaft. There can be no tape build up six inches down the shaft from the plastic head. The tape must be comprised of a single layer. The reasoning here is that thicker tape for face off players could allow them to increase leverage. The contrasting tape helps refs identify players that are “handling” the ball (with their hands), and helps to show when a player’s hand is touching the plastic.
3) Back Test Is Gone
The Committee decided that the shooting string rule, and the single sidewall rule were enough to create a wider set of pockets. The concern here was that face off guys, or anyone who had a slightly bent stick from play, could fail the back test too easily, even if their stick was usually legal. The Committee did not want to senselessly penalize players, so the back test was retracted.
I still like the Back Test Rule, and wish that the NCAA were keeping it, as I think it was the most extreme answer to the perceived problem. However, the Committee took a realistic approach to this issue, and is taking coaches’ concerns into account. If players start to create pockets where the ball doesn’t fall out again, I could see the Committee taking another look at the rule down the road, as being able to dislodge the ball freely correlates strongly to issues of player safety, which is a major concern of the Committee.
As many have said before, and many will probably say going forward, this is not a one-time solution, and it probably isn’t the end of rule changes altogether. The Committee will continue to look at the game, pace of play, and player safety, and new rules could emerge in the future. The true bright spot here is how willing the Committee is to vet its own decisions, and how willing they are to discuss it. That bodes well for the future of our game.
If there is an issue YOU are still struggling with, let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer it for you
Floor Lacrosse | Nottingham Trent University
Whilst Floor Lacrosse can be played using a number of variations according to the needs of the participants and/or context of the situation, the following approaches have been found to be the most appropriate.
- Competitions: This type utilises a full Basketball Court with the usual markings for a six v’s six game. See playing area.
- Informal activities: Modified competitive format or open play or open goal types. See diagrams below.
Open game diagram
Two-way goal diagram
There are eight in a squad, six/five/four on the pitch (according to the rules or the version being played). Teams can be of single or mixed gender and inclusive with individuals with special needs in matched ability pairs in specific zones.
For the competitive version see area of play diagram.
- The two opposing centre players must stay in the central circle A*.
- The pairs of opposing midfield players must stay in the area B*.
- The two opposing sweeper players must stay in the end areas C*.
- One an offensive and the other defensive sweeper*. See area of play diagram.
Players may only be changed from role/area via the substitution ‘on the fly’ (not whilst on court).
No special protective equipment is required for goal keepers as the ball will rarely be lifted or projected at a dangerous speed. Rules also strictly control the use of sticks and physical contact in the field and goal areas to minimise potential dangerous play.
They may only use the cap part of the stick to stop the ball within goal circle (however they must also not lie on the floor or place the stick horizontal to stop the ball). A four second time limit applies to clearing the ball. Field rules apply outside the goal circle.
- ‘On the fly’ providing that: There shall be only six sticks for the field players which must be exchanged as the players change over.
- Players must enter and exit the field of play via the ‘gate’ marked with two cones at the centre of the sidelines.
- Players not on the pitch must be at least 1m away from the side line and preferably seated on a team bench.
For competitive play it is recommended that that the goals are approximately 1.8 to 2 meters wide (or any similar distance used in a commercially produced mini goal sets) and, approximately 0. 75 to 1 metres high. For recreational play any safe markers can be used (bins, cones etc).
Sportime Cap Ball sticks-plastic. Contemporary Pop Lacrosse sticks (plastic). See the resources section.
- For competition, a firm plastic airflow ball (Cosom Safe Play) 2.75″ / 7cm diameter.
- For recreational use any similar size low bounce airflow ball is suitable.
3. Playing area
- Ideally a full basketball court with the usual markings.
- The surface must be relatively hard and smooth, whether indoor or outdoor.
- A centre circle – 3.6 meter radius *(A)
- Two goal circles of 1.8 meter radius * (G)
- A goal line sweeper line each end (G) (_ . _) See starting alignment and positions diagram below.
- Indoors: the ball rebounds whenever possible.
- Outdoors: no boundaries, the officials decide the area of play. When the ball goes ‘out of bounds’ or becomes trapped in equipment the opposite team to that which last had possession takes the free hit into play with all others 2 meters away. All players should be 1 meter in from any obstructions. To indicate the sweeper/midfield boundaries temporary lines can be marked (_ ._) or safe throw down markers used. (3)
Area of play ratios to length
Starting alignment and positions
4. Start/stop play
All play is started and stopped by the sound of the referee’s whistle. The duration of the game shall be two halves of 15 minutes with an interval (half-time) of not more than five minutes.
Start of play
A centre player starts the game with a pass from the centre circle. The player with the ball must pass from within the centre circle to another outside the circle whilst all others must be in their respective halves of the court, except the offensive sweepers. See starting alignment and positions diagram. (Team X v’s Y)
A goal is scored by swinging the ‘capped ball’ with the stick along the floor so the ball is released and propelled over the goal line.
- ‘Own goals’ can be scored.
- Goals may only be scored from the attacking half of the pitch.
- Dangerous shooting (i.e. lifting a swinging stick) will be penalized.
- Only goalkeepers (when used) are permitted in the goal circle. No other player may enter or reach in with the stick.
- Goalkeepers may not reach outside the circle to cap the ball.
- No intentional stick contact when endeavouring to cap the ball.
- No blocking a player’s line of run when they are travelling with the ball.
- No body contact.
- No dangerous follow through with stick (after shooting or passing).
- No intentional striking of the ball with the outside of the cap.
- Maximum of four seconds possession of the ball by a player (which cannot be extended by rolling the ball to oneself).
- Offside play outside or across the lines of the designated areas by the respective centres, midfielders, sweepers, goalkeepers.
- Aerial ball lifting – other than the defensive sweepers.
- Aerial balls (by the defensive sweepers) which cross the halfway line on the full.
Goal area fouls
- Goalkeeper playing the ball out of the circle or offside themselves.
- Goalkeeper committing a field foul.
- No field players may shield the goal circle within two metres to create another defender in addition to the goalkeeper – double defending.
- Free pass awarded to the nearest or infringed opponent.
- The offender is placed 2 meters behind player, all other players are placed 2 meters away.
- For simultaneous fouls alternate free passes are awarded through out the game (no dropped ball).
- For serious transgressions of the rules a five minute time out will be given to a player. No substitute can be made for this player during this time.
Goal area fouls
- For dangerous offensive play near the circle – a goalkeeper pass back into play.
- For double defending fouls or goalkeeper field fouls – penalty awarded.
- For goalkeeper offside – penalty awarded.
- The penalty is taken from the edge of the circle. While the shot is taken the goalkeeper must remain ‘stationary’ on the goal line, not move whilst the shot is taken and stand with the Cap Stick directly in front of their feet which must be held together, i.e. they cannot move at all.
7. Play interpretations
- When two players compete and run to cap the ball the closest has the claim of possession. The second must give ground. Neither player is allowed to make contact with the caps in the process or have body contact.
- During play, a player without the possession may delay the progress of a player with the ball by being at least 1 meter away and moving slowly backwards. This is not blocking – see foul rules.
8. Allowing for different abilities – inclusion in practice
Informal games – school lessons/club/camp situations
Any game situation needs to be managed to account for the wide variation in movement potential which groups of youngsters, with either physical or learning disabilities, often have. Thus some form of ‘balancing’ the contest between the respective teams needs to be considered.
Because of the format of Floor Lacrosse, the actual structure of the game makes this quite easy. Therefore traditional sport for the disabled classification systems may not be required. Instead a form of ‘match classification’ can be used with opponents in the respective four roles (area A, B, C, G) being notionally ‘ability paired’ with the agreement of the two team managers or with the discretion of the teacher in a lesson. Also at agreed times, the pairs of participants can be rotated from one area to another to experience the demands of the different player roles.
9. Player rankings for competitive games
Participants are ranked before the game in terms of:
a) how well the player understands the objectives and rules of the game.
b) the physical abilities they have to be involved in the game.
This successful approach used in trials – ‘match rankings’ – involves each player in a team (N=8) being ranked according to their overall ability (in terms of both a and b, above) Number 1’s have the most relative ability to number 8’s with the least. The teacher, leader, coach or respective team managers can then simply agree on which areas of the pitch the ranked numbers will be paired or alternatively the following recommendations can be used. Substitutions should then be done with simultaneous matched pairs and with the other team subsequently alternating this initiative.
Even in competitive matches agreement between coaches could result in matched player being rotated from one zone to another at set times.
When using this game approach the following playing areas and rankings format is recommended.
- Centres (centre circle, A) – Participants with the most limited understanding and/or movement co-ordination and/or hesitant disposition requiring some support. Rankings: 7, 8.
- Mid-Fielders (mid-area, B) – Participants who are the most athletic out of the group and can control the ball in dynamic situations: Rankings 1, 2, 3.
- Sweepers (offensive-defensive, end zone, C) – Participants whose relative ability is better than centres but who may need some guidance on attack and defence and are put off by the dynamic mid-field play. Rankings: 4, 5, 6.
- Goalies (goal circles, G) – Given that the higher the goal scores the more exciting the game will be, it is recommended that the goal keeper participant must not have the ability profile of mid-fielders. Rankings: 4, 5, 6.
10. Umpire notes
One umpire officiates from either of the sidelines. Throughout play the official’s discretion may be used to award penalties for dangerous play or unacceptable behaviour (in addition to the penalties above). A player may be sent off as a last resort.
The rules are there to protect players and make the game as continuous as possible. Unintentional fouls which do not give the offender or his/her team an advantage should result in a ‘held’ whistle whenever possible (official can call ‘advantage’).
Excessive use of the whistle is discouraged except to keep play safe and according the rules. As this is a dynamic game it is recommended that umpires carry out their officiating in a positive and friendly manner. Officials should use short, sharp, single blow of the whistle to both start and stop the game. A longer whistle indicates a goal. Clear, short explanation of fouls (e.g. stick contact on green, yellow ball) indicating with the arm, the team in possession to leave a second’s time length before the call on possession.
Lacrosse Mesh Has Been Approved For Women’s Lacrosse Sticks Lacrosse Video
Sep 15, 2019
New in 2018, mesh pockets are allowed in women’s lacrosse sticks across all age levels. Lax.com is now offering custom strung women’s lacrosse heads with mesh. Simply go to an unstrung lacrosse head, and choose your mesh type from the drop down menu. The head will come strung by our Pro Stringers, and will arrive game ready.
East Coast Dyes Venom Women’s Mesh Runner
This is a mesh runner that has a very high and soft sweet spot.
STX Crux Mesh & Crux Mesh Pro
This mesh is a little wider than the Venom and gets strung with the two leather supports actually woven through the sides of the mesh. This has the effect of giving a high soft pocket but also making the release and shot speed much quicker. If you shoot overhand and want a high pocket with maximum velocity – STX Crux mesh is the ticket. Our Pro’s have the STX Crux 600 Pro Strung with Crux mesh ready to ship out immediately. No wait time. The Pro version is a full-width mesh piece and similar to ECD Venom it has different sized diamonds to allow the ball to lay in the sweet spot.
StringKing Type W Women’s Lacrosse Mesh
The StringKing Type W women’s lacrosse mesh is the widest offering thus far. This mesh offers complete coverage of the lacrosse head and is the closest to a men’s lacrosse head. StringKing Type W lacrosse mesh features all-weather performance, no bagging and is designed to maximize control and consistency. No leathers or sidewalls are needed. When our Pro’s string one up this will come out game ready with very little break in time.
The governing body of lacrosse, US Lacrosse in collaboration with the NCAA and NFHS got together with the manufacturers and approved mesh in women’s pockets in an attempt to simplify the ultra-confusing regulations surrounding women’s lacrosse head stringing. Collegiate and high school players are changing out their traditional pockets to mesh pockets at a rapid pace and the younger players will receive a huge benefit from this change. You can learn more about this new rule change to allow lacrosse mesh in women’s lacrosse sticks by reading this article in US Lacrosse magazine.
The two most basic premises of women’s pocket legality will remain in place
- Shooting strings must remain attached directly to the sidewall (this keeps the upper part of the pocket from flexing too much and creating unfair faster shots).
- The pocket depth must allow a portion of the ball to be seen above the sidewall (front and back) and no holes or gaps in the stringing can be bigger than 1 ½ inches.
The best news is that the starter sticks and beginner sticks for the younger players will be much easier for them to learn to catch and throw. The pockets will be a bit “softer” and “deeper” than the tennis racquet type lacrosse stringing that is currently offered on women’s starter lacrosse sticks. This will really improve the learning curve for the younger player as the ball will stay in their sticks better when running and catching. At Lax.com, we now offer custom stringing for women’s lacrosse sticks based on the new rules.

The Color of the Screw » Powell Lacrosse Sticks
It is difficult to describe how truly customizable the sport of lacrosse is. From the different types of heads, shafts, equipment, and apparel, to the different types of playing styles that go along with it. Most sports have some customizable aspects to them, such as the basketball arm sleeve, football sweatbands, or hockey skate laces. But lacrosse? Every possible thing can be customized to your liking, all the way down to the color of the screw that holds the head on the shaft.
Everybody who plays lacrosse understands that no two players are exactly alike. Player style varies between all of the positions, from the dodging attackman who takes a beating from an aggressive long-pole defenseman, to the step down shooter who likes to shoot from 17 yards out; the nifty long stick midfielder who is a human vacuum in between the box lines, to the face-off specialist who virtually lives on his hands and knees for the entire time he is on the field. Many players emulate these styles and their gear is customized to fit exactly what they need.
Lyle Thompson is the dodging attackman that everybody wants to play like. He is known for taking an absolute beating from the entire defense, but somehow still managing to find the back of the net in a magical way. He is known for standing still behind X, which goes against all of what coaches teach young players, as the defenseman hacks at his arms. He patiently waits for the right time to make his move. He has one of the quickest first steps in the game, beating his defenseman to the goal line, where he then picks from his repertoire of finishes, whether he will shoot his infamous backhand shot, or possibly behind the back, or even one handed between the legs. Thompson partnered with Nike to create a custom cleat (which I personally wore in college, which basically made me Lyle Thompson on the field) to fit his style of play and quickness. He also uses beefier pads to help protect him from some brutal checks. Watching him play is really like watching the Harlem GlobeTrotters dribble circles around the Washington Generals.
Sergio Perkovic is a 6 foot 4 monster who uses his pure strength and power to tear apart goalies from a distance. He is known for his step down shooting skills that set him apart from the rest of the pack. His size, strength, and overall toughness can be seen through the pads he wears. As a midfielder who usually is guarded by either the long stick midfielder, or the best short stick midfielder, he wears little to no pads in order to step in to his shots without feeling the restriction of big, protective pads. This sacrifice of course comes with the brutal penalty of getting his arms hacked and bruised until they are full of welts.
Trevor Babtiste is a record setting face-off specialist who uses his quick hands and powerful first step to win the clamp of the face-off and beat his man off the ground, racing down the field towards the net. Face-off specialists use a very specific type of equipment, especially in terms of heads, shafts, and mesh in order to really put themselves ahead of their opponent. Within the past 10 years or so, companies such as Warrior and STX started to work with the top face-off guys in the country to develop a head and shaft that would work better, and hold up longer than normal lacrosse heads and shafts. Baptiste helped to develop the top face-off sticks used today as he continues to dominate at the X.
These unique players, and every other player in professional leagues, the NCAA, all the way down to youth leagues, are able to adjust and change their gear as they develop and perfect their style of play. This customization of equipment then allows for the game of lacrosse as a whole to develop and advance as the skill level of players increases exponentially. This development leads to rule changes, as we have seen in the past with the addition of stringing rules, and on field rules such as the addition of the shot clock. It is really intriguing to see where the game of lacrosse will be in 10-15 years when a new generation of lacrosse players take over. Lacrosse is truly an art form, and just like any artist, players can draw whatever they would like.
Changes to faceoffs approved in men’s lacrosse, offensive players will be restricted in the goal-mouth areaShare
The motorcycle grip during faceoffs has been eliminated in men’s lacrosse.
Under the new rule approved by the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel Wednesday, both players will start faceoffs with only their feet, gloves and sticks touching the ground beginning in the 2020-21 academic year.
Previously, players could start a faceoff on one knee and use a motorcycle grip, in which the stick is held with both palms down. Members of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules Committee felt this led to increased clamping of the ball and long stalemates.
With the new rule, players will have to move the ball in a continuous motion. If the ball is withheld in a player’s stick, a violation will be called, and the opposing team will be awarded possession of the ball.
If a team is called for three faceoff violations in a half, the player committing the penalty on all subsequent violations must serve a 30-second penalty.
The panel also approved making the goal-mouth area restricted for offensive players. If an offensive player jumps, dives, falls or runs into the goal-mouth area and scores, the goal will not count.
If an offensive player initiates deliberate contact with the goalkeeper, the official can call a one-minute penalty.
If an offensive player enters the goal-mouth area due to contact with a defender, any goal scored will be taken away, but the defender could be called for a penalty.
Another rule change that was approved involves defensive timeouts. In dead-ball, out-of-bounds scenarios, the defensive team can call a timeout, and the possession clock would remain at the time of the stoppage and not reset.

Changes have been made to the KHL rules, which will come into force from the 2021/2022 season. This was announced by the chief referee of the league Alexei Anisimov.
For six violations of the rules, which were previously punishable by 5 minutes of a penalty and sending off until the end of the match, the referees will be able to write only a 5-minute suspension. A second 5 minute penalty will automatically mean sending off before the end of the match.
The rules of the game with a high-raised stick were also changed – it will be considered as such if, in case of violation, it is above the level of the opponent’s shoulders.Accidental contact of the stick with an opponent as a result of a game action (throw, pass) will not be considered a violation of the rules if the player played the puck.
In addition, coaches will be able to take requests for blocking the goalkeeper and outside the game, as well as playing with a high stick, throwing the puck out of bounds, passing by hand and breaking the numerical composition immediately before a goal an unlimited number of times. In the case of the first error, the team will be penalized with a bench minor penalty, in the case of the second and subsequent errors, a double minor penalty.In this case, in case of an unsuccessful request, the coach will have the right to take a time-out.
The referees will no longer consult with video specialists: views on controversial moments until the 59th minute of the game will be made only on coaching requests, and from the 59th minute until the end of the match, the video viewing room will independently view all controversial moments related to goal scoring.
It is also reported that the working group has made a proposal to change the throw-in procedure.
“If a player arrives late for the throw-in in an attempt to gain an advantage, the linesman will caution him. The second and subsequent warnings during the match will translate into a bench minor penalty. When passing or getting a majority, the attacking team’s center forward will be able to choose at what point the throw-in will be made, ”the KHL website says.
Lacrosse | 1xmatch
Lacrosse is a team sport of Indian origin, played with a small rubber ball and special putters that have a net at one end to catch the ball.It is a highly contact sport that requires shoulder pads, gloves, helmets, elbow pads, and sometimes rib protection. The goal of the players is to catch, transfer and pass the ball with the help of a club, but the main one is to score goals into the opponent’s goal. Defenders should not allow this, as they use their sticks to grab the ball and pass, and are allowed to stop the attack by pushing the opponent with their body. The sport is extremely popular in the US and Canada, but is also played in the UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden.
Each team has 10 players: three forwards, three midfielders and three defenders plus a goalkeeper. Each of them has a cross (lacrosse stick). Midfielders and forwards play with short crosses (1.1 m), and defenders with long crosses. One of the midfielders can also play with a long stick (1. 3 to 1.8 meters), and a team is allowed to use up to 4 long sticks. A head with a lacrosse stick net cannot exceed 17 centimeters at its widest part.Goalkeepers are allowed to use crosses with a length of 1 to 1.8 meters and a head width of 30 centimeters. The heads of the crosspieces of the goalkeeper’s goal, as you can see, are larger than those of the field players, which makes it easier for them to catch the ball when it enters the goal.
The lacrosse court is 100 meters long and 55 meters wide. The doors are located in a round field with a diameter of 5.5 meters. Every quarter of the game, as well as after a goal has been scored, the match is resumed with a “throw-in”, as in hockey.
Forwards and defenders cannot cross the so-called “Border” until one of the midfielders crosses it with the ball in cross.Shifts are made on the fly, without waiting for the game to stop. One player goes out, in his place falls into the reserve, like in hockey, and in order for the replacement to be regular, it must be made in a certain area.
In the event of a violation of the game, the players are punished with expulsion from the game for a certain time, depending on the severity of the violation, and spend this time in a specially designated place between the two benches. Technical fouls are charged 30 seconds and personal fouls 1 minute.
The match is divided into four quarters, each of which lasts 12 minutes. In case of a tie, a continuation is played. Every time the ball goes out of bounds or stops play, time stops, just like in basketball.

The First Channel Cup matches will be held from 16 to 19 December in Moscow. “Canada’s national team will play in the Channel One Cup, it’s official,” Rotenberg said after the match between Russia and the Czech Republic at the Karjala Cup. The first vice-president of the FHR summed up the results of the performance of the national team at the first stage of the Eurotour of the season. The Russian national team took third place in the Karjala Cup, losing to the Swedes (2: 4) and the Finns (0: 3) and defeating the Czechs (5: 2).”We checked as many players as possible, progressed during the tournament. (17-year-old Vladimir) Grudinin from CSKA also broke the age record, played great,” added Rotenberg. … 16-year-old Matvey Michkov made his debut in the match against Finland on Thursday for the senior national team, he surpassed Vladislav Tretyak, becoming the youngest hockey player of the national teams of Russia and the USSR in history. On Saturday, Michkov updated Alexander Ovechkin’s record as the youngest goal-scorer in the history of Russian hockey (16 years 11 months 4 days), scoring in the lacrosse style against the Swedes.
Michkov’s records, new experience for young hockey players: the results of the Karjala Cup for the Russian national team
The Russian ice hockey team opened the new season with three matches in the Karjala Cup. The team, which represented the country at the first stage of the Eurotour, led by Oleg Bratash and Sergey Zubov, took third place, having won one victory in three meetings. After defeats to the Finns (0: 3) and the Swedes (2: 4), the Russians beat the Czechs (5: 2).
The average age of the Russian national team at the first stage of the Eurotour of the season was 20 years.All other participants of the tournament brought older teams to the Karjala Cup. The average age of the Swedes is 28 years, the Czechs – 24.5 years. Only one hockey player under 22 years old played for the Finns at the home stage.
Check before December
As part of the Russian national team, 27 hockey players went to the tournament, 14 of whom are applying for participation in the World Youth Championship in Edmonton and Red Deer. Three of them – goalkeeper Yaroslav Askarov, defender Shakir Mukhamadullin and forward Marat Khusnutdinov – have already played in the Karjala Cup a year ago.Forward Nikita Chibrikov made his debut in the main team and even scored a goal at the Swedish Games in February.
Oleg Znarok went to Helsinki as a coach-consultant for the national team. He became a consultant after his candidacy was not confirmed as the head coach of the national team at the Beijing Olympics. However, on Wednesday he had to leave the location of the Russian national team due to illness.
First defeat, Michkov’s first record
Contrary to expectations, Yaroslav Askarov, who is preparing for the December World Youth Championship, did not take a place in the Russian goal for the match against the Finns.The last line was defended by the goalkeeper of “Severstal” Dmitry Shugaev, who was called to the national team at the last moment.
The Russians held on for half the game, had several attempts in the majority, but the Finnish skill was embodied in goals in the middle of the second period. The removal of Alexander Nikishin in the 28th minute was implemented by Harry Pesonen, and four minutes later, Vityaz forward Miro Aaltonen struck Shugaev in a five-on-three game.
The two points scored by the second break seemed to be insufficient for Aaltonen.When Ivan Zinchenko was sent off for the Russian national team before the end of the game in the third period, he scored a goal for Valtteri Filppula, who returned to Europe this season. To break through the goalkeeper of “Magnitogorsk” Juh Olkinuor of the Russian national team that evening did not succeed.
Matvey Michkov at the age of 16 years 11 months 2 days became the youngest hockey player to appear on the ice as part of the national team of Russia or the USSR. The previous owner of the achievement was goalkeeper Vladislav Tretyak, who made his debut at the age of 17 years 7 months 8 days.
Second defeat, second Michkov’s record
Before the second game of the tournament, Oleg Bratash left the Russian national team for family reasons. Sergey Zubov took over the duties of the head coach.
All field players of the Russian team, who missed the match with the Finns (0: 3), were included in the squad. Askarov took the place at the gate.
The Swedes opened the scoring in the 19th minute, when Mukhamadullin did not catch up with forward Anton Bengtsson. Soon after the break Michkov once again rewrote the history of Russian hockey.The junior did not just break the record of Alexander Ovechkin (the youngest goal for the national team), but did it by scoring a goal in the lacrosse style. Michkov (16 years 339 days) surpassed Ovechkin’s achievement (17 years 355 days) by more than a year.
“The puck lay on the hook well, so I decided to try. I have scored such shots, yes, more than once. When I have the opportunity, I try. I practice these shots separately after training. I want to dedicate this goal to my family: mom, dad and brother. They believed in me, “Michkov said after the game.
True, such insolence only angered the Swedes. A couple of minutes later, Karl Klingberg, who won the world championship, again brought his team forward, being the first to bounce. But after another minute with a small one, Artem Galimov effectively ferried the puck into the top nine from a penny after a cross from the blue line.
Another miracle did not happen that day. The experience and skill of the Swedish team played a role. At the end of the second period, the ex-forward of “Ak Bars” and “Lokomotiv” Anton Lander distinguished himself, and in the middle of the third period he organized the second puck in the match for Klingberg.
“If in the first match we lost outright to the Finns, they ran over and killed us, then today we played much better,” Artem Galimov said after the meeting.
The tournament was closed with a victory
The Czech national team, like the Russians, lost the first two matches in the tournament. On the last day of the match, the teams played for the third place in a face-to-face meeting. Confidently, despite the defeat from the Finns, goalkeeper Dmitry Shugaev, who made his debut in the Russian national team, returned to the “frame” of the national team.The team included forwards Vitaly Abramov, Ivan Zinchenko, as well as defender Semyon Chistyakov.
Two removals of the Czechs in the first period resulted in two washers abandoned by the Russian team. In the fourth minute, Alexander Yelesin invested in a shot from the left throw-in circle, leaving no chance for the Czech goalkeeper. In the 18th minute, Khusnutdinov, with a transfer from the starboard side, found Dmitry Voronkov on a penny, in touch, having ferried the puck into the net.
Voronkov, who did not show himself in any way in the first matches of the tournament, played brighter on the edge in the link with Galimov and Michkov.The latter, in the 23rd minute, made another shot from a negative angle and achieved his goal. In the middle of the second period, Nikita Tertyshny from Chelyabinsk opened the scoring for the national team and sent the Czech goalkeeper to rest – 4: 0.
Unfortunately, it was not possible to win back this match “to zero”. The Czechs scored one goal before the second break, and in the middle of the third period scored the second goal. They had a number of opportunities to reduce the gap to a minimum, but the Russian national team managed to maintain the advantage and achieve their first victory in the tournament.
“It’s nice to close the tournament with a victory. We loosened our grip in the third period, but managed, played our hockey and brought the match to victory,” Zubov told reporters. “Our third goal was scored by Michkov, of course. I think they will rewrite him from Voronkov. his debut in the national team, we believe that he will grow. This is a special hockey player, we wish him to go forward, pay less attention to social networks. ”
The second stage of the Eurotour, the Channel One Cup, will take place from 16 to 19 December in Moscow. The World Youth Championship starts on December 26 and ends on January 5. The tournament will take place in Canadian Edmonton and Red Deer.

Sixteen-year-old Michkov rewrote two records in national hockey, becoming the youngest player and the youngest goalscorer in the history of the national team. “It seems that it was not me who broke the record, but it is still very pleasant, how happy for myself.A grandiose history, grandiose records for Michkov. I’m very happy for him! Previously, I only saw his heads in the MHL. I was very surprised at them too. I remember myself at the age of 16, as I ran in the MHL. In general, then nothing worked for me. It is immediately evident that this is a great guy, hard-working. We told each other a lot in the first game with the Finns. The guy hears everything, remembers everything, “Chekhovich said in a conversation with a RIA Novosti correspondent.” He asked me about the NHL, everything is interesting to him. He wants to know everything. All in all, a great guy.He would have given him twenty years if he had not known that he was sixteen. If you don’t know, you don’t understand in any way that he is the youngest here. In the fight he is not inferior to anyone, in general he is not inferior in anything “, – Chekhovich noted. To a RIA Novosti correspondent, he shared his impressions of the game in the same link with Matvey Michkov, talked about his debut in the National Hockey League and admitted that he hoped to receive the prize for the best newcomer of the last season in the KHL.
– Ivan, in recent days all our conversations are about Michkov. You played with him on the same link in a match with the Finns, when Matvey became the youngest player in the national team in the history of Russian hockey. Put your hand to the record, right?
– (Laughs) It seems that it was not me who broke the record, but still very nice, how glad for myself. A grandiose history, grandiose records for Michkov. I’m very happy for him!
– Did you first cross with him?
– Yes, I have only seen scraps of his heads in the MHL before.I was very surprised at them too. I remember myself at the age of 16, as I ran in the MHL. In general, then nothing worked for me.
– What impression did Michkov make on you?
– It is immediately obvious that this is a great guy, hard-working. We told each other a lot in the first game. The guy hears everything, remembers everything. He asked me about the NHL, he was interested in everything. Everyone wants to know. All in all, a great guy.
– Would they have given him 16 years if they hadn’t known?
– I would give twenty years. If you don’t know, you don’t understand in any way that he is the youngest here.In the fight, he is not inferior to anyone, in general he is not inferior in anything.
– You knocked out a place in the Russian national team with a hat-trick in the match with Dinamo Minsk, is it out?
– I don’t know, but they told me at the last moment that I was going to the Karjala Cup – the day before departure.
– At least so. Dmitry Shugaev said that he had already arrived in Yaroslavl from Cherepovets, spent the night, and in the morning learned about the call and went back.
– The story about our Artur Tyanulin is even more fun. He went to Kazan by train, and he was called up to the Olympic team.And so everyone was looking for him, they could not get through, but he was on the train.
“I would like to play again with Mila and Zhafyarov”
– How is your season?
– It all started hard, everything, and the team had a hard start, and mine. Things have gotten a lot better lately. We played well in the last matches before the break, we need to keep this pace after the break.
– You didn’t go through the preseason with Torpedo, did you?
– No, I didn’t have a contract until the last one. I didn’t know where I was going to play, so I prepared myself.But this is familiar to me, I have been preparing individually since the age of 17.
– With Andy Mile and Damir Zhafyarov, you were never put together this season?
– They did not put us together for a long time. Then we went out for one or two games, but nothing really worked out, and broke us again. So it started all over again for me.
– Lost all connections?
– Yes, there were just unsuccessful matches.
– Want to play together again?
– Of course! There is still much of the season ahead.Let’s see what happens next.
– Has Torpedo changed a lot compared to last season?
– On paper, we have become much stronger. If you look at their names, they came to us: the two best scorers of the Swedish league Marek Hrivik and Daniel Zaar, the hard worker Kenny Agostino, Theodor Lennström, who is having an enchanting season. It’s just that not everything is glued.
– But are you sure that you will be in the playoffs?
– No doubts at all. I am one hundred percent sure of this.I feel that we will be in the playoffs.
– Did the transfer to the Western Conference complicate the task? In the East, you would now confidently be in the eight.
– There is such a thing. We are with Spartak and Lokomotiv very tightly going now. We have lost some points … They call us “Robin Hoods”, because we beat “Dynamo”, “Traktor”, and then concede to weaker teams.
– It seems that there are fewer comebacks this season?
– Much less. Last season, we made direct comebacks all the time.
“I remember thinking:” What kind of NHL is I in general? ” of course, they shouldn’t explain to me. Probably, there are some rules. Maybe because I broke the contract and left for America … Although I was counting on a prize, I thought about it. And Klim Kostin, after all, is also even in the top three I didn’t get the nominees, apparently because I left
– But in the spring you made your debut in the NHL.How it was?
– It was exciting! Back from Torpedo, I played 17 games in the AHL. And then one day on the rollout I was told that in forty minutes I have to fly to the game against “Colorado”. I went to the airport faster. I flew in and they told me that I would play tomorrow. As a result, I did not sleep at night, I felt terrible at the game. I was not ready psychologically, it was hard.
– And you immediately left at the first link.
– Yes, I was assigned to Logan Couture and Rudolf Balzers.I remember being told that we would play against Nathan McKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog. I say, “Okay.”
– Have you played?
– As a result, in the first period I did not touch the puck at all. And during the break I was transferred to another link. I remember my first thought then was: “What kind of NHL is I in general?” The next matches were already easier. It is a pity that we lost all the matches just as on purpose.
– Who impressed at San Jose?
– Brent Burns, first of all.
– You look at everyone and think: “Here he is – cool, yes, but this can be achieved if you work hard. ” It’s not like that with Burns, it’s like he’s from another planet. He’s just some kind of perfect defender, super cool in defense and super cool in attack. He manages everything. I don’t know how you can get through it. In my opinion, I have never seen even on video that he was beaten, passed.
– Who is the most memorable of your rivals?
– The same McKinnon. I remember that after the throw-in, I clearly understood that he would go around.I was warned about this. And yet he caught me doing it. His hands are phenomenal and his speed is outstanding.
“It’s cool for me in Nizhny Novgorod after California”
– It’s sad that you said goodbye to San Jose?
– To a greater extent, this goodbye unties my hands, now I am a free agent in the NHL. I just had no desire to play in the AHL. I couldn’t do it there, and the coach saw me in the wrong role. At the end of last season, I played there in the fourth link for 10-11 minutes.And I didn’t have the slightest desire to go back there. I wanted to prove myself in the San Jose training camp, but I was told that it is possible to terminate the contract by mutual agreement if I do not want to play in the AHL. I made my choice between the AHL and Torpedo.
– Weren’t there any options with other KHL teams? Moscow Dynamo, for example?
– There was interest from some of the big teams. And “Dynamo” thought about buying out the rights to me, but “Torpedo” did not consider such options.
– How do you see your future?
– It’s hard to say.Initially I thought that I would go to the KHL for a year and then return, but so far the season is not going as I would like. While only thinking about the season in “Torpedo”, we need to play it to the maximum, get into the playoffs
– But the first option is the NHL?
– Yes, if I have the opportunity, I will go there.
– Would you like to return to Dynamo one day?
– The career of a hockey player is such that you never know where you will end up. I can imagine that I will still play in the blue and white uniform.
– How do you like being in Nizhny Novgorod after California?
– It may sound strange, but cool.It was hard for me in California. There are two sides to the coin: warm weather is cool, but it distracts from hockey. Nizhny Novgorod is a beautiful city and Torpedo’s fans are excellent. In the offseason, I received a lot of messages from them with words of support. It is clear that there is nothing like this in the United States.
