Each participant must wear his PS lax jersey.

Each game will be officiated by two certified college and/or HS officials.

Time outs – The clock stops on “time-outs.” Each team will be awarded 1 timeout per game. All time outs are 1 minute.

Cancellations

In the case of an unforeseeable problem with the field and /or sustained dangerous weather is expected, a member of the league will contact each coach via phone, It is also the responsibility of the team coaches to notify all their players if a scheduled game is cancelled.

All games are played on a artificial turf field. These fields are not affected by rain. If the game becomes dangerous due to weather, the referees will stop the game for up to 20 minutes to evaluate weather. If the game cannot be continued after 20 minutes, game is cancelled. Games will not be played if any lightning present.
