For both 7/8 A A, A and B, a check to the head is an automatic red card.  This is to protect  all of the players from head injuries and discourage uncontrolled checking.  All red cards will be reported by officials to the league, coaches 

must also report any cards to the BLA administrators. 

 

 

**Important things to keep in mind: 

The pass rule is in place to keep any one player or team from dominating the game and encourage team play.  Please do not play to the pass rule, encourage players to play as if the player with the ball could be going to shoot.   

 

 

The pass count only resets once the ball has crossed the 50. IE:  Blue is on attack and has completed the mandatory 1 pass, there is a change of possession and white comes up with the ball.  However, Blue plays good defense and recovers possession before white crosses the 50 into their attacking end. 

 

 

The pass count for Blue is returned to 1, they are able to 

shoot. 

 

No deputplay allowed The onlplayer allowed ithgoal 

circle, aANtimeis the goalie. 

 

 

A goal circle violation results in possession on goal line extended, with defender 4 meters behind, this is a direct foul.  But, if passes are needed, no lane is cleared, the team must still complete the required amount of passes 

 

 

Time Out can be called when a team has clear possession.  If Blue has clear possession, the Blue coach can call a time out. 

 

 

When the ball goes out of bounds and is brought back in, the official will set the player with the ball 2 meters inside of the

side line.
