Rule Book Download: Official-US-Box-Lacrosse-Association-USBOXLA-Rule-and-Situational-Book-2021v3

Here are a list of amendments for this tourney.

  • 3 x 12 min running time periods.
  • 2 min rest between periods and 2 min to warm up.
  • Last minute of the 3rd period is stop time If teams are within 3 goals or less. 
  • Games cannot end in a tie.
  • Game clock starts on the hour whether teams are ready or not.  Any team in violation will be given a 2 min delay of game penalty.
  • 1 x 30 second timeout per game.  Timeouts stop the game time and penalty time.
  • If tied after regulation time teams immediately proceed to a USBOXLA Shootout (3 shooters each and home team decides on whether they will shoot first or second).  If tied after that, there is a sudden death shootout round in groups of 3 (all rostered players must shoot before any player shoots twice).  Championship games will have a 5 min sudden victory followed by a shootout if still tied.
