PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE THE "STEAMBOAT CLASSIC" WITH ANY OTHER TOURNAMENT IN THE AREA. WE ARE THE ONLY STEAMBOAT LACROSSE TOURNAMENT OPERATED BY LOCALS FOR OVER A DECADE!

In an effort to make things easy for you, we put ALL TOURNAMENT INFO on this post. As new info becomes available, it will be added to this post and emailed to teams that are signed up. If you have a question, scroll down and you should be able to find the answer. Please read all info carefully, and if you have any questions, contact Tournament Director Andy Flax (steamboatlaxclassic@gmail.com).

-Look below (scroll to the bottom of this post) for full Tournament Rules and Age Guidelines. Note that we follow US Lacrosse Age Guidelines. These are stricter than both CYLA (Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association) and AYL, so if you are in these leagues, your ages match up fine. If you are in another league and are not sure, please see the table at the bottom of this post. Email Andy Flax at steamboatlaxclassic@gmail.com for clarification. No girls' divisions, sorry. 

-Tournament Skill Divisions and Details:

   -Low/Mid Level: Many leagues call these teams "Blue" (Low-Level) and "White" (Mid-Level).

   -High Level: Many leagues call these teams "Red" 

 

-All Low/"Blue" and Mid/"White" teams will play in a combined skill division (Low/Mid Level) within their own age group.  We generally get enough Low/"Blue" and Mid/"White" teams at each age level for those teams to play mostly teams of their same skill level (Low vs. Low and Mid vs. Mid), but Low/"Blue" teams may play some Mid/"White" teams. 

-High/"Red" teams MAY BE ASKED to play up an age division (against that age's Mid/"White" teams, not Low/"Blue" teams) if there are not enough "Red" teams at their own age level. This won't happen at the U15 age, as there is no higher age. Even though we anticipate having enough teams for both a Mid/Low and a High division at each age, if you are a High/"Red" team, please prepare for both possibilities: 1) playing up an age level with Mid/"White" teams of that age, and 2) playing with High/"Red" teams of your age if enough sign up. 

-Coaches may be contacted by tournament director Andy Flax to discuss proper fit for team. If tournament director does not feel that there is a proper fit, a team will not be allowed to participate. This is an invitational tournament - tournament director can, for any reason, decide not to allow a team to participate. Teams may be waitlisted to allow more level-appropriate teams to enter. When considering a team, we look at whether they will be an appropriate fit, their past conduct at our event, their sign-up date, and other elements. 

 

-Game times will be determined by May 8 and will be emailed to the team coach. Teams should anticipate spending two nights in Steamboat (Please see our Hotel/Condo deals at the top of the steamboatyouthlacrosse.org homepage beginning in late January). We understand that many of teams travel from far away and we will will try to accommodate for driving time. Please do not request game times.

 

-Our Playing fields are located at these Steamboat Parks and Schools:

   -Emerald and Dudley Parks 

   -Whistler Parks 

   -Steamboat Springs High School 

   -Ski Town Fields

   -Christian Heritage Fields

12th Annual 

Steamboat Classic Lacrosse Tournament

2015 Rules

 

 

 

Age Guidelines (US Lacrosse):

2015 Age Grouping Quick Reference Table

Birthdate Age Bracket
Born on or after 9/1/1999 U15
Born on or after 9/1/2001 U13
Born on or after 9/1/2002 U12
Born on or after 9/1/2003 U11/10

 

We will follow US Lacrosse Rules and Guidelines (Click Here for link), unless they differ from what is stated below:

 

1. Stick Checking - Winding up on a slap check, whether the ball carrier has one or two hands on the stick, should be called a slash and could even be unnecessary roughness.

 

2.Unnecessary Roughness/Unsportsmanlike Conduct - Both of these penalties could be mandatory 3 minute unreleasable penalties. If a player or coach has more than one of these in a game, it’s a mandatory ejection. KEEP IT CLEAN!

 

3. Clock - 20 Minute running halves, OT is five minute periods of sudden death until someone scores. Running clock only stops for official timeout if winning team has an injured player in the last 2 minutes. 5 minute halftime. Penalties are also running time; therefore, it is unsportsmanlike conduct for a man-down team to in any way delay the start of play after the ball goes out of bounds. 

 

4. Timeouts - One minute, one per team per half, none in sudden death, winning teams can’t use their timeout in the last four minutes of the game, a man-down team can’t call a timeout once the man-down penalty clock starts to run (they can call timeout right after the penalty is called, but only before the penalty clock begins).

 

5. Penalties - Technical foul is 45 seconds, personal foul is 90 seconds.

 

6. Body Checking -Each division will probably have players that are playing up a level. Therefore, referees are encouraged to call games  tighter than most of us are accustomed to ensure everyone’s safety.

U-15/U-14/U-13 Rules - Body Checking is permitted. To be legal, a body check should be delivered in a generally upright position with both hands on the stick and the player initiating the check may not use his lowered head or shoulder to make the initial contact. Running full speed to initiate body contact should be an illegal body check, one minute penalty. Translation: PLAY THE BALL. U-12 Rules - Upright body checks are allowed. Running full speed to initiate body contact should be an illegal body check, one minute penalty. Lowering a shoulder to initiate body contact should be an illegal body check, one minute penalty. U-11 Rules-No body checking, Legal pushes and legal holds are allowed.

 

7. Stick Dimensions - Please note that US Lacrosse defers to NFHS rules for stick dimensions, exept for the following modification that we will follow FOR U10/11 ONLY:

 

"The length of the crosse for field players shall be 37 to 42 inches or 47 to 54 (“long crosse” for purposes of NFHS Rule 2 SECTION 1 ARTICLE 2). 

We will use NFHS stick rules, exept for the modification above. 

 

 

Weather Refund PolicyIf games cannot be played due to uncontrollable circumstances (according to Tournament Director) such as bad weather, teams will receive refunds accordingly:

2 games played: $75 refund

1 game played: $275 refund

0 games played: full refund

 

Games may be shortened to 15 minute running halves if necessary in the event of uncontrollable circumstances. These shortened games will be considered games played.
