Coaches - We will post the final schedule update on Friday the 21st so please be sure to double check each team's schedule.

Official Tournament Rules:Northwest Shootout Jamboree Rules 2023

(Updated 10/1/22)


Score Keepers: Each team must have ONE score keeper representative per game. Score table will text a photo of the official tournament scoresheet to the Head Score Keeper at end of game. 

Game Times: All games are 50 minutes: 2 – 25-minute running time halves with a 5 minute halftime. Game times will be staggered 1 hour 15 minutes apart.

Timeouts: Teams get one timeout per game. Timeouts are 1 min as it is running time. There are NO Time Outs given in the last 5 minutes of the 2nd half. We are playing “running time”. 

Central Horn: All games are started and ended together by the on-field Northwest Shootout Game Starters noted by the main horn. 

Late Starting Games: Games delayed in starting will NOT make up time by continuing play after the scheduled end of a half or game. Game time will not be extended nor running time stopped for injuries or time outs. 

Coaches: Maximum of 4 coaches allowed on the sideline. 

Protective Creases: Crease protective rounds MUST be used on fields 1,2,3 and 4 at Kidsports 

Hot Pass: For 3/4, the "Hot pass" rule will be in effect. This means a pass is required after face off and anytime the ball passes midline.

Time Serving Penalties: For 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8, the player will serve the penalty. Penalty time starts when play resumes.

3/4 Time Serving Penalties: For 3/4, all personal fouls will be time serving penalties, the offending player in the penalty box for 1.5 minutes and the offending team will be required to play with only one midfielder for the duration of the penalty. The other team will start with a fast break set up at center X. 

Ejections: Officials can and will eject a player for multiple unsportsmanlike fouls or unnecessary roughness fouls or a single foul based on the severity of a single infraction. In the case of a game ejection, the player will not be allowed to play the next game either. This is consistent with the in-season rule of sitting out a game if a player is ejected.

Tie Breakers: 3-minute Sudden Death. If the 3-minute overtime period ends in a tie, the official score is a tie.

Weather: The Jamboree will be played rain, snow or shine. 

*In case of lightning, fields will be cleared until 10 minutes after the lightning/storm passes and then the game will resume via the central horn. The game must be complete by the start of the next scheduled game time which is 75 min from the original start time. Score will be final at play stoppage by central horn regardless of game duration.

Team Rosters: Team Rosters per MT YOUTH LACROSSE ASSOC. (MYLA). Team Size Management. If a team has fewer than four substitute players available on the bench at the beginning of a game, the head coach may request relief players from another MYLA team. However, other teams are not required to provide relief players. A relief player should only be used when a rostered player requires rest. In order to prevent stacking a team, coaches shall use best efforts to ensure that relief players are provided on an equal rotation basis like a batting order in baseball. All players on a relieving team should be played in relief roles before a given player is used in a relief role a second time. Relief players must be identified when the coaches and referees meet prior to the start of the game and reported to the scorer’s table.
