GIRLS 3rd/4th Grade: (7v7, goalies optional)

  1. Two (2) Pass Rule: Before being allowed to shoot on goal, a team must attempt two consecutive passes without a change of possession. Dropped balls count as an attempt, if there is no change of possession.
  2. Three (3) second “good defense” rule: If a defender can hold good defensive positioning with her stick shadowing the opposing player on the side where the ball is being carried for 3 seconds she will be awarded the ball. This is to compensate for no stick checking at this level. Referees must call this audibly.
