30 seconds to clear. 

Crease dive – You have to be going away from the goalie and any contact is a no goal and turnover. Pending level of contact a time serving penalty may be issued. 

Except for the Championship all games will be two 20 minute running clock with a 5 minute half time. Championship will be Four 12 minute running quarters. 

If a game is tied in pool play we will have one 3 minute overtime period. If the game is still tied it will remain that way. 

Playoff games will play 5 minute periods until a winner is declared. A forfeit game will result in a 5-0 loss and the team that forfeits will not be eligible to play in the championship rounds. 


Players and fans will be required to leave field and go into their cars. Play will be allowed to resume 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or sight of lightning is observed or the weather has moved to more than 10 miles away. 


Only head coaches can address officials or the HQ with game questions.

Bearpaw Lacrosse Events has the right to remove any coach, player, or fan from the tournament. 

Poor sportsmanship, taunting, fighting, or unsportsmanlike behavior will not be tolerated. 

Tie Breakers in Pool Play 

Win is 2 points/ Tie 1 point/ Loss 0 Points 

  1. Record 
  2. Head to head 
  3. Goals Allowed 
  4. Goal Differential Max score differential per game is set at 10 goals.
  5. Goals Scored 

Head to head in detail: This breaks ties based on the record (or points, if points are used) against the teams tied with. For example, if 3 teams have the same overall record at 3-1 and all 3 of the teams played each other an equal number of times and one team’s record against the other two was 2-0, another was 1-1, and the other was 0-2. The tie-breaker would order them accordingly. If all three teams had identical 1-1 records, this tie-breaker would not be used and goals allowed would be applied. 

Time Outs: 

One 30 second timeout per game per team – time does not stop. No timeouts last two minutes of games. Penalty time stops during timeouts. No timeouts in overtime play. 

Penalty Time: 

Technical: 45 seconds – Time and a half 

Personal: 1:30 to 6 minutes – Time and a half 

Penalty time starts when player enters the box and ref resumes play.

Helpful hints for Nashville from a Nashvillian:
Hot Chicken:
There are a lot of great hot chicken joints in Nashville. Some notary ones are Party Fowl, Hattie B’s, Prince’s, and Bolton’s. Party Fowl and Hattie B’s tend to be where I suggest people new to the Hot Chicken Craze start because Prince’s, and Bolton’s tend to be more heavy-handed with their spices. When it comes to ordering, if you do not feel like standing in a line, order ahead and do pick up, FYI the line can get pretty long at peak hours. 
There are three staples of BBQ in Nashville, Edley’s, Martin’s, and Peg Leg Porker. All three are amazing; but if you find yourself at Edley’s you are doing yourself a disservice if you are not ordering yourself a Bushwacker (think of it as an Alcoholic Wendy’s Frosty). While these can be found at many locations throughout Nashville, Edley’s Bushwakers are Premo in excellence.  
Downtown Bar Hopping:
Major tip, don’t stay at one bar all night. Each bar has its own scene. there are multi-floor bars (AJ’s Good Time Bar, Acme Feed & Seed, Kid Rock, FGL, Jason Aldean’s, etc.) and bars that are much more intimate/ historic feel to them (Roberts Western World, Layla’s Honky Tonk, Legends, the Stage, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, etc.). 
For the Bars that back up against the Ryman Auditorium (looks like a church), if there is a long line in the front, try the back ally entrance. This tends to be faster and has historical significance. During the time when the Grand Ole Opry was originally located at the Ryman, musical acts would scurry back and forth between the Ryman backstage entrance (now enclosed with an iron gate) and the bars across the ally to drink between their sets, and play after hours. 
Want to pull an all-nighter? The Diner Nashville (Downtown) and Scoreboard Bar & Grill on Music Valley Drive are 23/7 bars. This means technically “last call” is at 3 am (like all bars in nashville), but these two bars are allowed to re-start serving alcohol at 4 am. During this time the Kitchen is open 24/7.
Live Music:
Do not worry about finding good live music in Nashville, it is everywhere. Bad musicians don’t exist in Nashville, this is a well-known fact. if you don’t like the music in one location, just go next door, or in many cases, all you need to do is go to a different floor to get a different vibe. 
That being said, if you have time, definitely check out who is playing at the Live Music venues in the city, and check out the Nashville Scene for live show listings (
Nashville Neighborhoods:
if you are interested in visiting different Nashville Neighborhoods, check out Nashville Guru ( for a full breakdown of what each neighborhood has to offer. 
Demonbreum Hill / Mid-Town / Hillsboro village is more of a local college bar scene. 
Melrose, Sylvan Park, the Nations, East Nashville are more residential and hipster in vibe. 
All these neighborhoods have tons of great food, shopping, and ragging bars; and non of the tourist trap gimmicks that you find Downtown. 
Team Activities:
As much as the locals hate it… Rent a BYOB Pedal Tavern, Party Bus, or Tractor and get weird in public. Nothing like being driven around the city while pregaming your night.
