all teams are placed in a division based upon their league record.
This is a three-game minimum round robin tournament with teams accumulating points as follows:
Win = 3 points Scoring Tie = 2 points Tie = 1 point Loss = 0 points
Teams are then ranked within their division according to the points they earn. There are no playoffs within a division or with other divisions.
Tie Breakers: If, at the conclusion of division play, there are ties within divisions, ties will be broken as follows: 1) Head to head 2) Total shutouts achieved 3) Least amount of goals allowed 4) Total goals scored (Maximum of 3 per game counted) 5) Total goal differential (Maximum of +3 goals per game) 6) Fewest red cards 7) Fewest yellow cards 8) Coin toss
Top 3 teams in each bracket will receive an award. Trophies for 1st and 2nd. Medals for 3rd.
Length of Games: Games will be played in halves with a 5-minute halftime: U10/U12 – 15 minute halves
U15/U19 - 20 minute halves
Games are “running clock “ without extra time added except when an injury occurs that requires medical attention. Referees have the right to disallow substitutions in the final two minutes of a match.
Games are on a tight schedule, so please make sure that your team is ready to take the field ten minutes prior to your scheduled start time. There will not be any warm-up time on the field.
Substitutions: Besides the usual substitution times (goal kick, restart after a goal is scored, half time), on throw-ins, the team without possession may substitute players as long as the team with possession is substituting players.
