Important Changes to USL Rules

Rule 7, Misconduct and Suspensions:

  • The head coach will be responsible for the behavior of personnel affiliated with the team, including all assistant coaches, and will receive any cards related to lack of bench decorum.

  • Anyone receiving two yellow cards in a single game must sit out of the team’s next game

  • Anyone receiving a red card must sit out the team’s next two games.

  • Once a team receives its third card of the game, the team will play shorthanded for the remainder of the game. They will lose an additional player each time another card is received

  • The Scorer must notify the umpire immediately if a team receives its third card

Rule of 2/Code of Conduct

  • Rule of 2

    • OGLA will continue to follow OSAA Practice Limitation Rule. This applies from August 23, 2010 – February 27, 2011:

    • “ A team may not make any attempt to gather more than 2 members of the same high school program together per day outside the defined lacrosse season to receive specialized athletic instruction from any coach associated with the high school program (paid or volunteer).”

    • Any activities cannot be mandatory, must be open to all and no Sticks

  • Code of Conduct

Undue influence tracking transfers

Undue Influence & Tracking Transfers

  • Undue Influence

    • Cannot recruit players, if potential player contacts you, redirect them to OGLA

  • Tracking Transfers

  • This year OGLA will track all transfer students to help identify potential expansion

    • Transfers are allowed for a student whose school doesn’t have a team

      • She may play for the school within her home district closest to where she resides, with approval of that school’s officials

      • If student attends a private school that doesn’t have a team, she must play for the public school she would have attended

      • If a student is a senior and her family moves to a different school district, or a new team is started at her school and she is a senior she may continue to play for her current club if she desires.

  • All Transfer Request forms are due by March 1, 2011

Growth varsity plus

Growth - Varsity Plus

Goal – help Varsity teams with more than enough players but not enough for separate JV team grow their program through retention and add playing opportunities.

Program Overview:

  • Varsity team and a JV team that plays 9 games

  • Less experienced varsity players played a “3rd Half” to fill out the JV team as necessary

  • Recommended for programs with 24-35 players

Growth varsity plus1

Growth - Varsity Plus

  • What Worked

    • “To build the sport we need to provide playing time for all girls on each team. This provides that opportunity. There is nothing that compares to an actual game when learning the flow and movement on the field.”

    • “Everyone had lots of playing time at the appropriate level”

  • Improvements for this year

    • “…have the JV game after the varsity game so teams that need to fill with several varsity players can play the varsity game first.”

We are looking for new schools to try Varsity Plus in 2010-2011
