VIOLATIONS FOULS DURING OR AFTER A GOAL


Any foul committed during the act of shooting or after the goal has scored and before play has restarted will be penalized (major or minor)


All defensive fouls and attack fouls that are not in the act of shooting will result in a free position at center to restart play


Attack fouls in the act of shooting, such as charging, dangerous propelling and dangerous follow through will result in a free position awarded to the defense no closer than 8m to the goal circle


A goal circle violation or a dangerous shot by the attack will result in a free position for the goalkeeper


Alternate possession will be awarded if there was a slow whistle. The goal will not count.


GOAL AREA


When a team gains possession of the ball in the goal circle and the ball is cleared, the team cannot return the ball to the goal circle until the ball has been played by another player.


BEST PRACTICES


Goalkeepers must wear a lacrosse helmet with face mask and chin strap that meet NOCSAE standards.


Goal circles are complex areas to understand. The intricacies and subtleties of attacking and defending around the goal circle should be explained and learned early.


Goalkeepers should practice with their mouthpiece in so that they can practice communicating with it in.


PERSPECTIVES


P The best goalkeepers are athletic, have quick reflexes and are strong communicators.


C Goalkeepers should be trained to quickly look to transition the ball up field after making a save.


O A goalkeeper outside her circle loses her goalkeeper privileges and should have fouls enforced as if she were a field player.
