    Pool Play and Uniform colors:

    Home team will be listed second on the schedule.  Games will be 35-minute halves, running time.  Half time will be five minutes.  Referees may only stop the clock in the last two minutes of the game for injuries, etc.  Referees will be instructed to end games five minutes before the scheduled time of the next game, regardless of the length of the second half.  Tie games will stand.  No overtime periods. 


    Championship Games:

    Championship games will be 40 minute halves.  Clock will stop for goals and official’s discretion.

    A tie in the final game will be decided by regulation (two 10-min overtimes with “golden goal”).  If still tied, then PKs will decide the outcome. 

     Scoring for pool play will be determined by the following scoring system (maximum of 10 points per game):

                                        Winner =                6 points

                                        Tie =                      3 points

                                        Goals scored =        1 point for each goal up to a maximum of 3

                                        Shut out =             1 point


    Teams having identical points within a pool will use the following criteria to settle ties: 1st tie breaker will be head-to- head competition; then common opponents; if still tied, then “goals against”; if still tied, then “goals for”.  If still tied, seeding will be determined by a coin toss.


    A trophy will be awarded to the Champion and Runner-up. 

    Game balls, scorers, timers, will be provided. Each team will be required to provide one ball person per game.  Rosters with numbers must be submitted to scorekeepers 10 minutes before game time.
