At the Canadian Lacrosse Association meeting in November 2007, it was decided that the use of the Offense / Defense coaching tactic be detrimental to the development of minor lacrosse players.The system the OLA has created to administer the new rule into minor lacrosse is laid out below. These changes will be in effect beginning with the 2008 lacrosse season.
Offense / Defense is defined as a tactic whereby, while at even strength, any player, or group of players, leaving the bench and deliberately returning to the bench without the benefit of participation of play in both the offensive and defensive zones during the same shift.
The Offense / Defense rule is to be applied in the Bantam age division and below. The rule will be in effect in all sanctioned OLA games, including zone play, invitational tournament competition, and Provincial Championships.
Only those referees assigned to the game (either on the floor, or the standby official if applicable) will be permitted to determine if a team is using the Offense / Defense tactic.
The following discipline is to be assessed to the head coach of any time who is guilty of using Offense / Defense at any point during a game:
1st offense in a game:
A 2 minute bench minor penalty.
2nd offense in the same game:
A gross misconduct penalty to the head coach.
For all ages under 17 years of age, the KMMLA is focused on the development of our players over winning at all costs.
