2016 Tournament Rules

Team Rosters and Registration

Player registration will be conducted via an electronic process which will generate rosters and player passes for the 2016 tournament.  Team managers are required to have these passes available during all games at the request of the referee.  For playoff games, referees will verify each player via these passes prior to the start of the game.

If any manager suspects a player on the opposing team to be ineligible, they may request the referee verify the player in question by comparing a government-issued identification to the player pass. Verifications may take place before the game begins, during half time, or within 5 minutes of the end of the game - and must take place before the team manager initials their approval of the scorecard. Once the team manager initials the score card, no further contest will be honored. Any team manager who does not agree to initial the scorecard will have their team assessed a forfeit.

Any player who refuses to provide identification upon request will be considered an ineligible player. If a player is declared ineligible, the game in which their status is contested will be scored as a 0-1 forfeit. 

Teams may consist of up to legally registered 22 players.

Age requirements:

Players may register on one team per age group in women’s or coed.
