THE GUIDE TERMS


At the U13 and U15 levels, players may use the boxing out technique where one player uses body contact to keep his opponent away from the loose ball so that a teammate can more easily gain possession and win the ground ball. When using this technique players should communicate and say, “I’ve got man” (meaning he will check the opponent) and “I’ve got ball” (meaning he will scoop the ball). Once the ground ball is won, the player gaining possession will say release (telling his teammate possession has been gained and he can no longer legally check his opponent). Like transition, winning a ground ball can often lead to an odd-man situation and a scoring opportunity as the defense can be caught out of position when possession is gained.


MAN-DOWN: the defense plays with at least a one-man disadvantage due to teammates serving penalties.


CENTER LINE: the line across the center of the fi eld of play. ON-THE-FLY SUB: a substitution made during play.


PENALTIES: the penalty for a technical foul is loss of possession or 30 seconds. The penalty for a personal foul is 1-3 minutes and/or expulsion. Penalties can be releasable or non-releasable after a score.


PICK/SCREEN: an offensive maneuver in which a stationary and motionless player attempts to block the path of a defender guarding another player.


RELEASE: the term used by a timekeeper to notify a penalized player in the box that he may re-enter the game.


RIDE: The defending team will try to prevent their opponent from advancing the ball, thereby creating a turnover.


SCORER’S TABLE: the table and area between the benches at midfi eld where time and score is kept, penalties served and some substitutions made.


SHAFT: the stick’s handle, the shaft, may be made of aluminum, wood, or composite material and is connected to the stick head.


SLIDE/HELP: when a defender leaves his defensive position to help a teammate guard an offensive player.


STICK CHECK: using stick-to-stick contact to try to dislodge the ball.


STICK POCKET: the strung part of the head of the stick which holds the ball. Sticks with pockets not to specifi cation may be removed from the game and may also lead to penalties.
