League Rules

The Atlanta Lacrosse League uses the US Lacrosse rule book as a starting point for our Leagues. The Men follow the POCO adapted rules and the Women follow WCLA. We do NOT have shot clocks, all games are running time & body checking is limited on the Men’s side to just basic bump and run.
