Girls Lacrosse Indoor League @ Turf City Rules
Tri-State Lacrosse offers Indoor Leagues as a training tool designed to further the player’s ability, establish strong team communication and ability to think and react quickly during game play. In doing so, it is important that this playing environment be safe for all players and encourage a positive experience for all players. In doing so, we have created a set of rules that look to honor the game while protecting the players. Please take a moment to become familiar with the rules of the league as they are listed below.
In addition to these league specific rules, Tri-State Lacrosse follows all US Lacrosse Rules of play. So although not listed, they are still in effect. The rules listed below are those that are unique to our indoor leagues.
