  • 0 points for a loss.

Top 2 teams in each group will advance to the championship game for that group.

GOALS & GOAL BOX: The goals are a maximum of four feet high by eight feet wide. The goal box, 12 feet wide and 8 feet deep, is directly in front of the goal. No player may touch the ball within the goal box, however any player may move through the goal box. If any part of the ball or player’s body is on or across the line it is considered in the goal box; the player is an extension of the box. If a defender touches the ball in the goal box, a goal is awarded to the offensive team. If the defender OR the ball is in the box and contact is made, a goal is awarded. If an offensive player touches the ball within the goal box, a goal kick is awarded to the defensive team. If the ball comes to a complete stop in the goal box, regardless of which team touched it last, a goal kick is awarded to the defensive team.

If the criteria (1-3 above) for 3 or more teams eliminates all but 2 teams, the criteria for a tie between two teams (above) will be used to determine the rank of the two teams.

  • First team to score in overtime is the winner.
  • If no team has scored in the five minute-overtime period, the winner shall be decided by penalty kicks.
  • Coin toss will decide which team begins the penalty kick round.
  • The three players from each team remaining on the field at the end of overtime will alternate with each penalty kick with the higher scoring team winning after the first round.
  • If the score remains tied after the first round of penalty kicks the same field players will rotate in a sudden death penalty kick format until one team scores unanswered.
