I’m looking to start up a mixed social/non-contact lacrosse game for new and experienced players using mini lacrosse gear. See below for details.

Why mini lacrosse gear?
Because @ $25 per stick it is cheap for people new to the game and better than using Sofcrosse/McWhip-it gear for people who have played before. The balls are also softer, so it limits the chance of injury.
It is better for a range of ages and skills, and makes sense for a mixed game.
Honestly, I don’t know yet. It would depend on the level of interest and the location of the majority of interested people.
These are based on modcrosse rules, which work well for mixed and junior games.
Non-contact – This means NO contact with stick OR body
Holding the ball – Four (4) second carry limit before passing
Scoring – Three consecutive passes before being able to take a shot.
Teams – This will depend on the level of interest, but I’m thinking of a maximum of four players plus a goalkeeper on the field
Duration – 2 x 10 minute halves, or possibly 4 x 5 minute quarters to allow for rotation through the goalie position.
Playing Area – On any court, approximately the size of a basketball court. Indoor would be preferable.
Goals – Small mini-stick goals will be used (approx 90cm x 90cm)
