Chumash Rules

GAME OVERVIEW:

Two teams of three players each play the game. Each team may have up to 2 additional players (5 total) as substitutes – you will want substitutes. Players are not allowed to use long or goalie sticks. Short sticks must be legal length (middle or attack).

A single goal will be set up in the middle of the field. The objective is for each team to score on its respective side of the goal. Goals are unprotected, with no goalie, keeping the speed and intensity of the game very high.

THE GOAL:

The single, two-sided goal in the middle of the field is 6 feet high by 1 foot wide. A goal is scored when the ball hits the net or when the ball hits two posts before bouncing away from the goal.

GETTING STARTED:

A coin toss will determine which team gets possession of the ball to start the game. The team that wins possession will put the ball in play from behind their TAKE BACK line. The other team gets first alternate possession, normally possession after half.

THE CREASE:

The center circle surrounding the goal is the crease. 

CREASE AREA PRIVILEGES:

When the ball is on the ground in the CREASE AREAS, players from both teams are allowed to be in this area to gain possession of the ball. When there is a clear change of possession the team with the ball must pass or carry it back to the TAKE BACK line in front of their goal, much like 3 on 3 basketball. If a team fails to do this the ball is awarded to the other team (see below).

Players from the team that does not have possession of the ball (“defensive players”) are allowed to be in the CREASE AREA but only if they are continually moving through it. A defensive player cannot take a position to defend the goal while in the CREASE AREA. A CREASE AREA violation by a defensive player will result in a technical foul (see below).

Players from the team in possession of the ball (“offensive players”) may not stop in or shoot from inside the CREASE AREA Per the above, any player may enter the crease area when the ball is on the ground and the players are attempting to gain control. A CREASE AREAS violation by an offensive player (e.g., stopping in or shooting from outer crease, stepping in inner crease) will result in a change of possession.

LOSS-OF-POSSESSION FOULS:

A change of possession will occur on illegal screens, warding off, withholding the ball, and offensive CREASE AREA violations.

PERSONAL FOULS

Personal fouls are illegal body checking, slashing, tripping, and cross-checking, based on age-division appropriate interpretations. Any touch or “Brush” of an opponent’s head or face with a stick or arm is also an automatic Personal foul. A personal foul will result in a “man down” situation and the offending player will go to the sidelines and remain there until one of the following events have occurred: d) The opposing team has taken two shots. e) The offending player’s team gains possession of the ball. f) The opposing team scores a goal.

TIME:

A 3v3 LAX game consists of two 12-minute running time halves. After a 3 minute halftime break, the two teams change sides for the 2nd half. Each team is allowed one 30 second time-out per game (the game clock will remain running during the timeout). Timeouts are not permitted with 3 minutes or less remaining in each half.

SUBSTITUTIONS:

Substitutions can be made during the course of the game. The outgoing and incoming players must touch sticks while at least one of the two players is off the field; outgoing player must immediately exit playing area. Substitution violations will result in a Technical foul.

THE FIELD:

The 3v3 LAX field is 86’x36, with the single goal anchored in the middle of the field. The boxes on each end act as the take-back line and sub area.

PLAYING THE GAME:

Each team can use the entire field and there are no offsides. However, a goal can only be scored from a team’s designated side of the field. A shot that is made into the goal by a team from the opponent’s side of the field is not a score and will result in a change of possession. When there is a clear change of possession, the team with the ball must pass or carry the ball behind the TAKE BACK line on their side of the field before they can begin attacking the goal. If a team fails to pass or carry the ball beyond the TAKE BACK before they begin attacking the goal, the ball will be awarded to the other team. The TAKE BACK line does not establish a “safe” zone.

After a goal, the ball is put in play from beyond the TAKE BACK line.

If the ball goes out of bounds, either from a shot or pass, the ball is awarded to the opposite team of who last touched the ball.  Balls may be played from off the wall with possession going to the player closest to the ball.

Chumash is designed to be as self-regulating as possible to enhance the joy of playing, and to make it easy to play a real game of lacrosse anytime, anywhere.  There will be a field monitor/score keeper to make the final call.

WALLS:

Players are allowed to play the ball off the walls.  Checking is not allowed at any age.  For the safely of all players, any ground ball near the boards will automatically be given to the closest player (if it results in a turnover, the team in possession must take the ball back to their area before they go to goal).

OTHER GAME PROCEDURES:

There are no rules governing time for ball advancement, etc. 

TECHNICAL FOULS:

Technical fouls are interference, holding, pushing, and defensive CREASE AREA violations. A technical foul will result in a “man down” situation and the offending player will go to the sub area and remain there until one of the following events have occurred: a) The opposing team has taken one shot. b) The offending player’s team gains possession of the ball. c) The opposing team scores a goal.
