Possession Time Out Restarts

Possession timeouts outside the critical scoring area are restarted at the spot of the ball when the timeout was called.  However, restarts when the ball is in the critical scoring have additional considerations.  Here are some situations that may help you get things restarted! 

  • SITUATION 4: The Blue goalkeeper gains possession of the ball in the goal circle and a possession timeout is called. At the end of the time-out, the Blue team's goalkeeper maintains possession in the goal circle and the official continues his/her count from where he/she left off before the time-out was called. RULING: Correct procedure. COMMENT: If the goalkeeper has possession in the goal circle when the time-out is called, possession will resume with the goalkeeper in the goal circle. (4-3-3d, 7-2-1)

 

  • SITUATION 3: A Blue player has the ball in the 12-meter fan and a possession time-out is called. At the end of the time-out, the Blue team resumes play at the closest dot and all players move 4 meters away. RULING: Correct procedure. COMMENT: Play will resume at the closest dot when a possession time-out is called in the critical scoring area unless a free position is being administered at another location in the critical scoring area or the goalkeeper has possession of the ball in the goal circle. (4-3-3b, 4-3-3d)

 

  • SITUATION 2: An 8-meter free position has been awarded at a hash mark to a Blue player and the Blue team calls a  possession time-out. At the end of the time-out, the Blue team resumes play at the closest dot. RULING: Incorrect procedure. COMMENT: Play will resume at the location of the free position at the 8-meter hash mark, the player who was fouled shall take the free position and the offender shall take a position 4 meters behind. (4-3-3b, 4-3-3c)

2021 NCWLOA Rules Reminders

As we begin the 2021 Spring Season here a few reminders that everyone should review. 

Self Starts


Self-start is NOT an option when:

  • The game clock is stopped
  • There is an offside foul
  • The foul is in the critical scoring area
  • There is an alternating possession
  • There is an inadvertent whistle
  • A goal is scored

FAQs on Boundary Balls and Boundary Starts/Re-Starts


There are new rules for 2020 for restarting play when the ball goes out of bounds. When resuming play from out of bounds, a player may:

  • Collect the ball, run onto the field and continue play without pausing;
    or
  • Step onto the field, pause and self-start:
    or
  • Step onto the field and wait for a whistle.

NOTE: When the clock is stopped, the player must come onto the field and wait for a whistle.

Additional information on boundary balls can be found in the US Lacrosse Boundary Ball FAQ document.

FAQs on Free Movement


The new rules for 2020 allow for free movement by players on a whistle or stoppage of play. Players are not required to stand when the official blows the whistle except in certain instances for players who are fouled, caused the foul or are associated with the foul.

Additional information on boundary balls can be found in the US Lacrosse Free Movement FAQ document.
