Winter League

Winter League

The Federation of International Lacrosse launched a new style of play to help push for Olympic inclusion. This style of play is faster, all players are more involved- including goalies, and it will give each field player offensive/defensive reps. With goalie clears after goals, a 45s shot clock, and fewer players on the field, there is no doubt that this fast-paced style of play will prepare all teams for their spring season.

Director of All Lax and Team USA Standout, Megan Douty, is excited to introduce this Olympic style of play to the local area. “I love this style of play because of its fast-paced environment, the excitement from end to end, and in comparison, these Olympic rules allow me and my teammates to prepare better than ever for our international competition.” – Megan Douty

 

 

Team USA and UNC Head Coach, Jenny Levy was excited to hear that Megan would be introducing this style of play to our area and offered some insight for us to share with you all. “As lacrosse continues to grow, there are so many different versions of the women’s game; from youth to high school rules, inter-collegiate and Women’s professional rules to the international rules, and now Olympic rules. Although the growth is exciting, It also makes player development, officials training, and fan understanding very difficult.

Not only do we need to be more intentional with playing rules that create a more consistent game between all the levels of lacrosse. We have to begin to introduce the younger generation of players to the Olympic game and rules.

Concepts like free movement, quick starts, faster play after goals, shot clock and lower player numbers are all elements of the Olympic rules that are different from our current youth and high school rules.

The opportunity for the next generation of players to use these concepts and begin to connect to the Olympic-style rules will help their overall player development, skill, and creativity. Additionally, it will educate them about the newer game concepts and make them a part of the movement for lacrosse inclusion in the 2028 LA Olympic Games.

If younger players have the opportunity to train and play with these newer game concepts, I say you should absolutely DO IT! It will improve your game and be a lot of fun!” – Jenny Levy
