BOYS YOUTH RULES RULE 1 — THE GAME, FIELD & EQUIPMENT


THE GAME - NUMBER OF PLAYERS RULE 1 SECTION 1.


Boys youth lacrosse is played by two teams with 10 players per side on the field. However, if a governing league or association deems it necessary or desirable, for example, due to the number of available players or skill level, or if in non-league contests both coaches agree, games can be played with as few as seven (7) per side on the field.


THE FIELD – DIMENSIONS RULE 1 SECTION 2.


Play on regulation size field is preferred; however, the coaches and officials may agree to play on any size field available. If a game is played with reduced numbers (e.g. 7 per side) it is recommended that field size be reduced as well.


THE FIELD – SPECTATOR RESTRICTIONS RULE 1 SECTION 2, ARTICLE 11 A, B & C


Spectators and media, including photographers, are not allowed behind the end lines except in stadium structures where permanent seats exist which are also protected by a fence or netting.


Spectators must be on the side of the field opposite the table and bench areas or in permanent stands separated from the bench area by a barrier and/or a buffer distance such as a track.


Where possible, limit lines will be used. Spectators and media, including photographers, are not allowed within the limit lines at any time during a contest.


If the field is laid out in a manner that does not allow spectators and media to be located as prescribed by paragraphs a, b and c of this rule, as modified here, the game official can waive one or more of these requirements.
