Our 3 x 3 Boys Lacrosse Winter Challenge is a fun, fast-paced event focusing on showcasing players’ skill sets, Lax IQ and ball movement. It is played like half-court basketball, where the ball is cleared and reset after every possession. Both teams attack the same goal.
TIMING - A central horn will start and stop games at the same time. 5 minute games with 2 minutes to rotate. Two pools decide the Championship round.
EQUIPMENT - Tennis balls are the game ball. Helmets, gloves and mouthguards are mandatory. Short sticks only – no long poles or goalie sticks.
3 v 3 - on defense, one player steps into the goal leaving the other two players to defend against 3 attackers.
There are NO hard stick checks. NO body checks. MINIMAL CONTACT.
PENALTIES - No Body Checking, No Slashing, No Slap Checks. Minimal stick checks when ball is in opposing players stick, or on the ground. Stick Checks can only be a poke to the gloves.
This is a Gentleman’s game and event. It’s about honing your stick skills, having fun, getting better and enjoying the game we love with our friends and teammates.
*Players must supply their own coordinated reversible jerseys to designate their team.
It’s also about major bragging rights – so come ready to play!
