Epic Indoor lacrosse (Box) is played inside the confines of an existing indoor soccer field, with 3’ walls all around, and the arena has existing soccer goals. The playing surface is turf. Most basic professional lacrosse rules are followed.
Each team has five runners and a goaltender on the floor during the game. Each team may have as many as 18 players total. The pick-up games consist of two 22 minute halfs, with a 10 minute break at half time.
Face-Offs: To determine possessions at the start of each half only, two players face their sticks at midfield with the ball between sticks.
Body Check: Used to slow opponent who has the ball; must be above the waist and below the neck.
Stick Check: Stick on stick checks only. No hitting on hands, arms, or head. (slashing)
Breakaway: One-on-One (shooter on goalie) scoring opportunity.
Over And Back: Once play advances over the center line, if the ball moves back over the line it’s over and back, and the ball plays where it lies, with no defender interference. A fast break situation.
Goals: are 4’ (high) x 4’9” (wide). The circle around the goal known as the crease is 9’3” in diameter. An offensive player is not allowed to step in the crease area. Players can fly above it while shooting and land in after :-). Shooters should have a clear shot at goal before shooting. Most players are wearing limited upper body protection.
Crease: Only the goalie can stand in this nine-foot radius with the ball. Shooters or teammates can not stand on (on inside) the line or their goals won’t count. Defenders can enter and pick up ball. No pass back’s to Goalie.
Out-of Bounds. At the Sportsplex arena, it’s a change of possession if: The ball goes above the back wall into the net, into the soccer net behind the goal, into the dug-outs, or out of the field either off the goal post, or other instance.
No: Personal fouls, elbowing, holding, illegal crosschecking, slashing, pushing from behind, wall checking, or tripping. We are strictly recreational, and don’t want injuries of any kind. Players can be ejected from game for several reasons including fighting, or several major penalties during the game.
Enforcement: We usually play without a referee. Many of the players are past coaches and referee’s and will call out violations. For the most part we are self governed, and play with respect for each other.
