  5. Box lacrosse picks are allowed, but any aggressive picks will result in a change of possession and/or two (2) minute penalty.
  6. Off ball cross-checking and slashing will be called tightly. Minimal off ball hitting. Cross checking is allowed, but it should be done in a "push" fashion, meaning that you can place and steer a player.
