2015 IHSLL (High School) Fall Ball Info

Play starts this weekend, and continues until October 31, with 5 or 6 Saturday games usually in the mornings, but there are no games on the October 10 “start of hunting season” weekend!

RULE CHANGES: High School games will use the 2016 Rules Changes mostly involving face-offs moving to the NCAA rules. Also the “pinch & pop” NCAA rule was added, so only one step to get the ball out of the a back side head posession, and “over & back” is now loss of possession – READ THE RULE CHANGES!

2016 Rule Changes: https://www.nfhs.org/sports-resource-content/boys-lacrosse-rules-changes-2016/

I am trying to assign one ref used to the NCAA rules for early season games to help train other refs for the revised rules. Finally, please remember that this is FALL BALL, and emphasize learning NOT “catching” players! Fall Ball should be fun and beneficial for improving for the regular Spring Season.
