Yes. Players are allowed to pass in all directions in the game of Lacrosse. THE GAME # Games are played with 4 x 10 - 15 minutes quarters, with 2 minute breaks between quarters and a 5 minute half time. # Substitutions can occur at any time during the game and must take place off the field and through a designated substitution area (see diagram).

Players coming onto the field must observe the attack/defensive placement of players and rotation of roles is strongly recommended at the quarter changes. # No body or stick contact is allowed. # Both hands are on the stick when playing the ball. # The ball can only be carried for 4 seconds and thrown before the count reaches 4 ( Count: 1001….1003,1004) # Only two opposing players may contest a ground ball. If another player joins in then the team with only 1 contesting player takes possession. # The ball cannot be trapped by the scoop. # The stick cannot be used to back scoop the ball - attempts to pick up the ball must be propelled forward. # Teams win a toss to start a game and each quarter teams alternate first possession. The game starts in the defensive half of the field (with the goalkeeper). From the start there must be at least two passes before a goal is scored. # Defenders retreat 3m for start of quarters and loss of possession. All other defending situations require 1m clearance with defenders' sticks as vertical as possible and players facing each other. # Only the goalkeeper may use a hand to protect the goal but may not catch the ball. # The line is deemed out. Balls crossing the line - after a shot on goal go to the closest defending player, in general play go to team not in possession. there!! now dont ask any more questions!!

Is it legal to pass to the running back and then the running back passes to a wide receiver?

Only one forward pass is allowed per play where there is no limit to the number of lateral passes per play (a lateral pass being one that travels parallel or backwards to the line of scrimmage). If the pass to the running back is a lateral pass, the running back is allowed to throw a forward pass to the receiver. If the pass to the running back is a forward pass, the running back is not allowed to throw a forward pass to the receiver.

Can you pass after receiving the American football?

You are only allowed one forward pass per play, and all forward passes must originate behind the line of scrimmage (i.e., the line where the ball was placed prior to the snap). However, a backward pass (or "lateral" pass) is always legal from anywhere on the field. So a quarterback can receive the snap, make a backward pass to a back or an end in the backfield, who could then legally pass the ball forward.
