Team Certifications: All Coaches will be required to check-in at the Registration Tent at least 45 minutes prior to the start of their first game to certify their team rosters and sign the Coaches Code of Conduct.

Roster Size: All teams must have a minimum of 12 players AND each player is required to have a valid US Lacrosse #.

Team Groups Descriptions:  Graduation Year Based

  • 2028/29, 2027, 2026, 2025, 2024, JV, High School

NCAA Stick head rules will not be enforced at any level.

Multiple Roster Players:  Players are allowed on multiple rosters as long as the teams are in separate divisions AND the player is grade eligible (Playing up). No exceptions.

Horns: None – Clock Kept on Field

Specific NCAA Rules

  • 20 yard substitution area.
  • Goalie does not get 5 seconds to get back to crease on a violation.
  • No 5-yard halo on restarts. If a defender is in the 5-yard halo and plays the attacker, a technical foul can ensue.
  • Stall warning results in a 30-second shot clock.
  • When the shot clock is on, a shot must hit the goal or goalie to count as a shot. If not, the ball goes to the defensive team no matter who is closest to it on the end or sideline.
  • On a man down face off, a player cannot be brought out of the attack or defense areas to cover the wing line.
  • If there is a pre-whistle FO violation, the FO middie does not have to leave the field.
  • After 2 pre- or post-whistle violations in a half, subsequent violations on the FO will result in a technical foul.

Game Balls: Each team will receive 6 game balls at check-in. The team is responsible for balls on their offensive end-line.  Additionally, a good plan would be to have each player bring 2 balls in their bag so that your team has enough balls for warm-up and the tournament.

Code of Conduct Violations: In addition to the NCAA rules, any player, coach or anyone associated with the team who violates the Code of Conduct will be subject to a Warning, Ejection from a Game or Ejection from the Tournament depending on the severity of the infraction. An ejection of a coach also results in the offending team being given a two minute, unreleasable penalty.  Any player or coach ejected from a game will not be allowed to participate in the next scheduled game. Any coach or player ejected a second time will not be allowed to participate in any remaining games in the tournament.

Number of Coaches on a Sideline: Each team will limit the number of coaches in the bench area to three, a Head Coach and 2 Assistant Coaches.

Game scores:  After each game, the coach of the winning team is required to record the game score in the Field Book. DL Staffer or volunteer will gather and record the scores.  For playoff seeding – A win will be given three (3) points, a tie will be given one (1) point and a loss will be given zero points.  Additionally, shutouts will be given one (1) point to help differentiate top teams. All standings are available in our app – Tourney Machine. It is available for IOS or Android.

Bracket Play: Top teams (4 minumum) in division advance to the Championship bracket. All other teams will play in the consolation bracket. Bracket play is single elimination.

Awards for each Division:  Championship bracket winners will be pictured with the LSS Cup and receive their champions medal. Location is near the south end of field 6.

Playoff Seeding: based on the following in order;

  • Overall Record
  • Total Points – 3 points per win, 1 point per tie and 1 point for a shutout
  • Head to Head competition
  • Fewest goals allowed in all games
  • Coin Toss

Note: Forfeits will be scored 2-1 (not a shutout)

Games by Division: 4 games guaranteed -3 Pool Games on Sat and one bracket game on Sunday

Water: Teams are encouraged to bring their own water.  The tournament WILL NOT provide public water jugs in the bench areas.  Sports drinks and bottled water will be available to purchase at the concession stand.  However, teams may bring their own refreshments if desired.

Clean up of bench areas after games: Each coach is requested to ensure that the bench area is picked-up after each game. Trashcans are available near bench areas and trash bags, if needed, are available in the Tournament HQ Tent. If you see a full trashcan, please notify a tournament worker who will all be dressed in a Staff T-Shirt.

Resolution of problems or disputes: The Tournament Director (in consultation with the Head Official, if required) will make all final rulings/decisions on any and all problems or disputes.

Additional Information: Disqualified teams must play their scheduled games but will receive 0 points and tallied as a loss. DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON the Park – BUT there is a dog park near the fields.

Team parents are expected to respect the Officials and the Players. Bad behavior will not be tolerated.

Play hard and Have Fun!

 

Withdrawal Refund Policy

A full refund is available for WD’s 14 days prior to the Tournament. Team withdrawing within 14 days of the tournament forfeit their entry fee. No Exceptions.

 

WEATHER POLICY

In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the Dallas Lacrosse and the City of the Lewisville reserve the right to:

  • Reduce game time in order to catch up with the schedule.
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives, or to preserve field conditions.
  • Reschedule games, if possible.
  • Convert tournament to a ‘Festival’ format without playoffs or championships to provide a majority of the teams the opportunity to play as many games as possible.

In the event of weather, we will post updates on the website in addition to our text messaging system.  However, weather conditions can change rapidly and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather clears and fields are playable.

If thunder or lightning is observed within 5 miles of the Park, the play will suspended immediately and players and fans will be asked to leave the fields and vendor area.

Under no circumstances will your team receive a full refund of the entry fee.

Delays During Games

If a game is in progress, the period will end immediately and the score will carry over after the delay.  If it is the second half, the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded.  If it is the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half.

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but we will not jeopardize the safety of any player.

Refunds Due To Weather 
The event organizers have hard costs associated with the event regardless if games are actually played. Thus if weather forces a partial or full cancellation of the tournament, 25% of entry fees are non-refundable. For cancellation of games due to weather or field closures, the following refund policy is in place.
 
Lone Star Shootout – We assume each team will play 4 games – 3 Pool and at least 1 game in Single Elimination Bracket Play (Championship bracket or Consolation bracket). All games after the first round of Bracket Play are considered Bonus Games. 
 
  • Should 1 game be cancelled – No Refund
  • Should 2 games be cancelled – 25% of the entry fee paid refunded
  • Should 3 games be cancelled – 50% of the entry fee paid refunded
  • Should all games be cancelled – 75% of the entry fee paid refunded
