STOPPAGE GAME TIMES:

Being in South Florida, we do happen to experience our fair share of weather issues.  Game stoppage could be for any reason that prevents us from finishing a game (weather, lightning, lights malfunction, running out of time on the field, park error, injury….etc).  Games that are in progress will be considered a legal game and score based on the following rules:

ROSTERS

SCORING

OFFENSE

  1. HANDOFFS

PASSING/RECEIVING

PENALTIES (OFFENSE)

PLAYER CONDUCT 

  1. EJECTIONS:  Players ejected from any league may be required to serve a one game suspension pending league review (this may included a 2nd game of a night if a team has a doubleheader and is the call of SFCS field staff). Fighting, wrestling, or pushing will not be tolerated and may result in multi-game suspensions or ejection from the league altogether. Verbal abuse of officials or players, fighting, foul language, and continued rough play could result in player ejections.
  2. PROFANITY: Profanity will not be tolerated and may be grounds for players being called out or ejected on the discretion of the referee.
  3. ALCOHOL is prohibited from all City & County parks unless others noted.  Teams caught drinking are risking the permit for everyone in the league.  Head to the bar after the game and don’t be “THAT GUY” that screws everyone else out of being able to play.  This could lead to a warning or forfeiting of games and possible team removal.

PLAYOFFS

  1. FORMAT: Tournament is single elimination with seeding based on regular season standings. All teams make the tournament.
  2. SEEDING: Tournament seeding will be based on the following criteria (based on won-lost percentage where applicable): 1) winning percentage, 2) head-to-head play (if 3 or more teams are tied this means head to head record amongst all tied teams),  3) Overall Run Differential for the season 4)  Overall runs scored  5) coin flip.
  3. PLAYER ROSTER: Players have to play AT LEAST TWO games in the regular season to be eligible to play in the playoffs.
  4. REGULAR SEASON 8th GAME: sometimes a team may play more than the 7 regular season games due to an odd number of teams.  If the team plays an 8th game the score, stats and win/loss for the 8th game will count toward standings for that team.
