Team and Game Details
Teams: The 2016 season of the Atlanta Lacrosse League will feature 6 teams. Each team will consist of 23-24 players which will be chosen from the A.L.L. Player Pool. After registration is complete the league will choose rosters for each of the teams. Our goal is to create teams that are evenly matched to ensure great competition throughout the season. During registration players can note which friends they would like to play with, however we can’t guarantee you will be on the same team.
Game details: Each game will consist of two 25 minute running time halves with a 5 minute half-time. Each team will be allowed 5 minutes to warm up before each game starts. Each team is allowed 1 time-out per game. All penalties are time and a half so technical fouls will be 45 seconds and personal fouls will be 1 minute and 30 seconds. We will follow the official US Lacrosse rules for Post Collegiate Club. All game ejections are reviewed by A.L.L. after the event. The League will investigate the actions of all parties involved to ensure the proper course is taken. (see sportsmanship policy)
Referees: The Atlanta Lacrosse League will staff referees for each game. We will schedule two officials per game, however if necessary we will play with one official. The league does not guarantee that GLOA officials will be used, however we do promise to use officials who are well versed in the rules of the game.
Player Eligibility: No High School Players are allowed to play. You must have turned 18 years old and graduated from High school before 6/1/2016 to be eligible to play.
League Waiver: Each player in the Atlanta Lacrosse League must sign a AMATUER SPORTS WAIVER.
Fees: The player fee for the summer season will be $130 and the goalie fee is $100. Payments & Registration are handled by TeamSnap & PayPal.
Our goal is to create an atmosphere where everyone can have fun playing sports in a safe and social setting. Safety and good sportsmanship are of utmost importance in the Atlanta Lacrosse League. Rude or demeaning behavior to referees, the opposing team, and/or your own team members will not be tolerated under any circumstances. All A.L.L. participants are expected to know and abide by the rules for each sport as well as uphold standards of good conduct and sportsmanship.
Any behavior that is deemed violent, harassing, and/or inappropriate in any way, as witnessed by the referee, or A.L.L. staff, will result in the following action:
1st infraction – The player is removed from the current game and must leave the premises immediately. A minimum of a 1 game suspension will be issued beginning with the next scheduled game. Depending on the severity of the infraction, further discipline or eviction from the league may occur. The referee may petition to have any suspension waived based on the nature of the ejection (i.e. preventative vs reactive).
2nd infraction – The player must sit out the remainder of the current season. Depending on the severity of the infraction, further discipline or eviction from the league may occur. No refunds will be issued for suspension from play.
Procedure – Upon infraction, the referee will submit an ejection report to the A.L.L. Staff. This file will become the official record and the suspended individual will be notified. All decisions by A.L.L Staff are final. Any evicted player may petition the A.L.L staff for reinstatement after one full year of absence.
Payments and Refunds
What forms of payment are acceptable?
All payments must be made via TeamSnap which uses PayPal to process payments. If you are having issues please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any problems with PayPal logins or your PayPal account should be directed to PayPal.
When is payment due?
Full payment of registration fees is due at the time of registration. We make every attempt to ensure maximum participation, but we cannot accept any registrations after the league has started. We do not offer walk up registration for any event unless specifically stated.
What is your refund policy?
No refunds, credits, vouchers, or transfers to a future season, will be given (no matter the circumstances) within seven (7) days of the originally posted start date of the league or activity. An administrative fee of 10% of the registration will be charged for ALL refunds requested more than seven (7) days prior to the originally posted start date of the league. In the event that a league or session is canceled due to insufficient sign-ups or for any other reason, registrants will be given a full refund of their registration fees.

My game was canceled after it already started, will we make it up?
Any games that are canceled due to weather will be made up if we have time. Right now we are planning on offering double headers to aid in rescheduling canceled games. If we have more than 2 weeks of delays we may not be able to make up every week that was canceled. Please note we are not able to refund fees if this scenario happens. In this scenario the league will offer rain checks for next session. Any games that make it into the second half will be considered complete if the game is called due to weather.
Alcohol and Tobacco Policy
Fulton County regulations do not allow for alcoholic beverages, glass bottles, tobacco or drugs on the fields at any time. Failure to follow any of the facility policies will result in removal from the A.L.L. and the police will be notified.
