A special set of rules had been prepared in order that the conditions under which the game is played in Canada, the United States, Australia, and England might be assimilated, and the Olympic match saw the goal crease enlarged, with special restrictions that prevented an opponent from entering it; a white ball was used, slightly heavier than English players are accustomed to and somewhat lighter than Canadians use; the ground was hemmed in by a canvas wall ; and the time of play was divided into four quarters instead of two halves. These were innovations from an English point of view, but every endeavour had been made by the lacrosse authorities to adopt Canadian views, as some small acknowledgment to a team that had come so far.
