The High School and High School Elite divisions will use 2016 National Federation of High School Associations Rules with the following exceptions/clarifications:
- All games will consist of two (2) 22 minute running time halves with a four minute half-time. Each team will be given one (1), one-minute timeout per half, which cannot be taken in the last five minutes of each half. The clock will run during time outs.
- All substitutions will be on the fly.
- Four minutes of penalties in one game will result in an ejection. If a player is ejected they must sit out the next game.
- Any player that is involved in a fight during the tournament will be ejected from the tournament! No Exceptions!
- Any team that leaves their sidelines in a game will forfeit their game and be banned from any future games.
- Any coach that is ejected must meet with the tournament director to determine ability to remain on the sidelines during future games.
Pool Games Ending in a Tie
All pool games that end in a tie will go into 3 minute sudden win overtime. If there is a man-up/man-down situation at the end of the half, the team with possession will start with the ball in overtime.
If there is no winner after one overtime, the game will end in a tie.
**There are no time outs in overtime
Playoff Games Ending in a Tie
After a one minute break, all playoff games that end in a tie will go into an immediate 3 min. running time sudden win overtime that will start with a face-off unless there was a penalty situation at the conclusion of the second half. Whoever possessed the ball in that scenario will start the overtime with the ball at the mid-line, and the penalty will have to serve his remaining time. All penalty time and procedures are normal during this overtime period.
**There are time outs during overtime
Methodology for Seeding
Teams will be seeded within their pools based upon the four categories below after they have played their three pool games. Tie breakers are in order from 1 to 4.
- Record (Weighted Average) Record – This is technically based on winning percentage which is computed as follows (Wins + .5 * Ties) / (Wins + Ties + Losses). For example, if one team is 1-1-1 and another is 0-0-3, they technically have the same record (winning percentage)
- Head to Head (if applicable…see link below)
- Goals Against
- Goals For
For a complete explanation of all tie breaking scenarios please follow the link below.
Penalties will begin with the next whistle and will be regular time. Technicals will be 30 seconds and personals will be 60 seconds, unless otherwise called.
There will be two certified referees per game. All calls are final. Please set a good example for your team by not complaining about calls or yelling at the officials.
No pre-game lineups except for Championship Games.
No horns will be allowed for substitutions.
