1.Each Team must have no more than seven players on the playing area

2.Each team can nominate and use 5 substitutes/replacements

3.Substituted players may return multiple times

Middle School Competition – The Middle School team category will play a round-robin format with the seeding of the teams determined from the round-robin play.  The “Seeding Tie Breaker” rules shown below will determine final placement should there be a tie arising from the round-robin games.  Middle School variations will be used for each game.  Middle School Substitutions are open for the entire 15 player event roster

Bracket point system – all divisions:  A win will equal 3 points.  A tie will equal 2 points.  A loss will equal 1 point.  A “No Show” or forfeit will equal 0 points.

Pre-Game procedures – all teams will be available at their field at least 10 minutes prior to their scheduled game time for equipment check and coin toss.

Bench Areas – Only players and coaches who are on the approved Tournament Roster are allowed in the bench area.  Coaches must be on the “team side” – there will be no coaching from the fan side.  The only exception to this is the single “on-field coach” for middle school matches.    Coaches and players must remain in their team area which is designated as from their side of the half-way line to the 22M line.                                    

Duration of periods - All Matches, including semi-final and finals, will consist of two seven-minute halves except overtime periods as noted below.  There will be no overtime period in pool/preliminary/bracket games.  Overtime will only be played in the consolation, semi-final and championship games.

Extra time will be in periods of five minutes. After each period the Teams will change ends without interval. In extra time the Team which scores first will immediately be declared the winner without further play.   The Team that first kicked off will do so again in the first period of extra time, and subsequent kick-offs will alternate between the two sides.
