USL SPORTSMANSHIP US LACROSSE SPORTSMANSHIP INITIATIVES


SIDELINE MANAGER AND SPORTSMANSHIP CARD The US Lacrosse Sideline Manager and Sportsmanship Card concepts have been designed to be preventative tools at youth games. Sideline Managers help to maintain a positive environment and issue the Sportsmanship Card as a warning to an individual coach, athlete, fan, or group of fans.


Most often, the Sportsmanship Card Program will correct the unacceptable, unsportsmanlike behavior that threatens to ruin the game, but is also available to support the unfortunate circumstance of game termination as a consequence of an initial incident of or continued unsportsmanlike behavior.


The Sportsmanship Card is a resource for men’s and women’s program administrators and officials working youth games, and designed to work in conjunction with and to help clarify the Official Rules for Girls’ & Women’s Lacrosse. When used in conjunction with the rules, the Sportsmanship Card procedures serve as an effective deterrent to abusive behaviors. The program was created with the goal of establishing constraints that should:


1) eradicate the “unsportsmanlike behavior” that is creeping into sport, 2) strengthen sportsmanship, 3) contribute to the retention of officials, and 4) honor the game.


Since 2005, informational resources about the Sideline Manager and Sportsmanship Card concepts has been distributed to US Lacrosse chapters, coaches, program administrators, players and fans. Written into the Boys’ and Girls’ Youth Rules, the success of the Sideline Manager and Sportsmanship Card concepts will be as strong as the commitment of organizations and individuals to implement them — thanks for doing your part.


2016 POINT OF EMPHASIS FOR COACHES, PLAYERS AND OFFICIALS: Dangerous Contact - A new mandatory yellow card has been added. Danger ous contact is defined as any action that thrusts a player with or without the ball who is in a defenseless position. This includes but is not limited to: head down, from out of the visual field, in the air or out of balance especially in the kidneys, ribs, lower back, shoulder blades or aimed at the neck or head. While some body contact will occur during normal play, there is no justification for deliberate and violent collision by any player especially intentional player-to-player collisions with defenseless players. The increase in the severity of the penalty is intended to send a strong message that this type of play is unacceptable.
