General Rules for Men and Women:

The Surf N Turf Tournament will adhere to Club and a version of  NCAA Rules. Players are required to use their best judgment during play with regards to checking and physical contact. Intentional bodily harm and violence will not be tolerated and may result in immediate ejection from the tournament. Flagrant use of force and intent to injure will not be tolerated. Players failing to adhere to this policy will be penalized and face possible expulsion from the SNTT.

All players including goalie must wear team issued jersey, any player failing to do so will be asked to leave the field. If the player does not leave the field immediately a one minute non releasable delay of game penalty will be called.

All teams must have a minimum of 8 players to avoid a forfeit. If a team cannot field a goalie for a scheduled game, the team will be permitted to use a substitute.

In case of a forfeit, team with most players will win, goals will be added up and divided by the amount of games played for an average. That score will be recorded for the game.

Winning teams Captain are responsible for reporting scores to the registration/check in table. This should be done after the game. Any dispute in scores, score recorded by officials and SNT staff members at the field will be used.

Mens Rules:

All games are 10 vs 10 format

20 seconds to clear, from time you take ball from defensive zone to touching inside the offensive zone.

Only "on the fly" substitutions are permitted.

Only four (4) poles allowed on the field.

Each team will be awarded 1 timeout per half (no timeouts can be used under two minutes to run out clock time, a penalty of 30 sec with loss of possession will be given to a team that violates this rule)

All penalties will be served by using running time.

Penalties are releasable after goal, we will not lock in (unless for unsportsmanlike or referees deem lock in should occur).

Team with lead under 2 minutes must keep the ball in their offensive zone(defined as box).

Play will continue when flag goes down. Only when defensive team controls the ball or the ball goes out of bounds will play stop. Offensive zone/box will count as out of bounds.

All games will consist of two 25 minute halves, running time.

All goalies must be equipped with a chest protector and throat guard, no exceptions.

If a game ends in a tie, there will be no overtime both teams will be awarded a tie for the game.
Playoffs and Finals on Sunday will be 10 minute sudden death and will play until a winner is declared.

The Money Game: The top 4 teams from the field of 14 will play a four team playoff. Rankings will be by record (wins, losses) and goal differential. In case of a tie, tie breaker will be goals scored.


Womens Rules:

All games are 12 vs 12 format but can be done as 7 vs 7 if needed.

30 yard line restraining rule is in effect 4 players must stay back at all times.

When a whistle blows, all players must stop in place. When a ball is ruled out of play, the player closest to the ball gets possession when play is resumed. Loss of possession may occur if a player deliberately runs or throws the ball out of play.

Field players may pass, catch or run with the ball in their crosse. A player may gain possession of the ball by dislodging it from an opponent's crosse with a check. A check is a controlled tap with a crosse on an opponent's crosse in an attempt to knock the ball free.

The player must be one step in front of her opponent in order to check. No player may reach across an opponent's body to check the handle of a crosse when she is even with or behind that opponent. A player may not protect the ball in her crosse by cradling so close to her body or face so as to make a legal, safe check impossible for the opponent.

All legal checks must be directed away from a seven-inch sphere or ""bubble"" around the head of the player. No player is allowed to touch the ball with her hands except the goalkeeper when she is within the goal circle. A change of possession may occur if a player gains a distinct advantage by playing the ball off her body. Rough checks, and contact to the body with the crosse or body, are not allowed.

Fouls are categorized as major or minor, and the penalty for fouls is a free position. For major fouls, the offending player is placed four meters behind the player taking the free position. For a minor foul, the offending player is placed four meters off, in the direction from which she approached her opponent before committing the foul, and play is resumed. When a minor foul is committed in the critical scoring area, the player with the ball has an indirect free position, in which case the player must pass first.

A slow whistle occurs when the offense has entered the critical scoring area and the defense has committed a major foul. A flag is thrown but no whistle is sounded so that the offense has an opportunity to score a goal. A whistle is blown when a goal is scored or the scoring opportunity is over. An immediate whistle is blown when a major foul, obstruction or shooting space occurs, which jeopardizes the safety of a player.

All players are asked to wear but not made to wear all required equipment as stated by NCAA Lacrosse Rules. Unless under the age of 21. Goggles/Eye Protection is optional. If under the age of 21 goggles are mandatory. All goalies must be equipped with all required padding no exceptions.

All teams must have a minimum of 8 players to avoid a forfeit unless we go to 7vs7 format. If a team cannot field a goalie for a scheduled game, the team will be permitted to use a substitute. However, the substitute goalie must be a registered player.

All games will consist of two 25 minute, running halves. Five minute break for halftime.

Only "on the fly" substitutions are permitted.

Each team will be awarded 1 timeout per half (timeout can not be used with under two minutes left in game). If a game ends in a tie, there will be no overtime both teams will be awarded a tie for the game. Finals on Sunday will be 10 minute sudden death and will play until a winner is declared.


The Money Game:

In order to make it to the Finals you must place 1st or 2nd after the final games on Saturday. Teams will be ranked by wins, losses and goal differential. In the event of a tie, the team with fewest goals allowed will be declared the winner.
