MODIFIED CHECKING VIOLATION


STICK CONTACT


Defense is called for a dangerous check and a yellow card is issued. Play is stopped and ball carrier is awarded a free position. Carded player is removed from fi eld. The defense now plays short for two minutes. (U9/U11 allows substitution for a carded player.)


BEST PRACTICES


Stick checking should be taught as a progression as the player ages and their skills develop. Emphasis should be on fundamental defensive positioning.


Modifi ed checking allows players to develop proper checking and positioning skills while encouraging good stick skills.


PERSPECTIVES


Offi cials may call a foul anytime they feel a player is using her stick in a dangerous or intimidating way.


Reinforce stick control and safe play.


Repeated dangerous checks should be carded.


Offi cials should be vigilant about carding initiated checks to the head. Incidental contact with the head or contact initiated by the attacker should not be carded.
