Heres one I am not sure about. Can you send someone off in mixed lacrosse? If so when can you do it?
For instance if someone is badmouthing the ref on pitch do they get sent off for the entire game after a few warnings or can they sub back on after an extended period of time?
Or if someones constantly shooting through or playing dangerously are they sent off after how many warnings?
I was just curious to know :)

standard yellow and red card procedures

dangerous play can result in a yellow - will depend on the ref etc..

I would suggest that as mixed lacrosse is only a bit of a laugh, anyone playing in such a way that involves danger to others or being rude to the ref - should just be told to get off the field by the ref and everyone else playing.

I was almost sent off in a mixed game - All I did whilst stood next to a female opposition attacker was shout BOO REALLY LOUD when she was about to catch the ball. (she droped it, I picked it up and ran off) the female opposition ref stopped the game and said she'd send me off if i did it again :roll:

i don't think women should get sent off, we were playing away somewhere (can't remember, probably drunk at the time) and the opposition had a girl sent off for a high check or dangerous play or something like that and she cried! - poor girl!

So to conclude - mixed is fun, should be a laugh!
(PS I think any male player with a mens stick who thinks he looks tough running through a bunch of girls and fellow male mixed players should be sent off!!)

Anyone from a Uni which has both mixed and men's teams and chooses to only plays the mixed version of the game - should be banned!

I'm Cardiff Uni's nominated mixed referee and in all the matches i've reffed i've only ever sent one player off and that was only as a joke as it was the last minute (Mandy take a bow). A Swansea player was on his final warning in the regional tournament last year (no need to name and shame) for over aggression and dangerous play but nehaved after I told him if he committed another foul he was off. Its very rare, in my experience, to see the levels of dangerous play required to send someone off. Generally you warn them once and they're fine for the rest of the game.
