2.      U8 are still able to play 4v4 or 5v5 depending on team sizes like during the season. Similar the U10 who are able to play 7v7 or 8v8 like during the season.  For all other divisions if less than required players, teams will play short and the opposing team does not have to play down if they choose not to.

  • There will be 1 minute between quarters and 5 minutes for halftime. Please follow this to stay on time.


4.      Home team, top of the bracket, will be on the left side of the field facing the spectators. U8 & U10 will switch sides at the half and U12-U19 each quarter.

5.      Away team will kick-off 1st & 3rd quarters, home team will kick-off 2nd & 4th quarters

i.   Referee to provide instructions.

ii.   The shootout will be done from the same goal (referee to decide) and a coin toss to decide who shoots first and will follow this order (Team A, Team B, Team A, Team B).

iii.   If still tied after the 1st shootout (All 5 players have kicked), it goes to another round of penalty kicks but shot for shot.  If first player Team A scores and player Team B misses, game is over and Team A would win.

iv.   For the U8 shootout it will be 4 versus 4, there will be no goalie, best of 4, and will shoot from penalty mark. Continue similar to part 3 if still tied after 4 kick takers.

viii.   Once a shootout team is picked, swapping of shootout player for non-shootout player is not allowed, unless injured during shootout, and then new player takes that injured player's position in order.  If a goalie change was made, the original goalie remains on the shootout team unless changed due to injury.

ix.   Goalie can be changed, although this must be done prior to the opposing team sending the player to the penalty mark.
