“Golden Goal” Play-Offs
Games which must result in a winner and are tied at the end of regulation time (i.e. semi-finals, finals, etc.) will be decided by “Golden Goal” as follows: Each team is to designate a team of players equal to the number of players allowed on the field. The coach is to assign each of these players a unique number 1 through 6 (7 in the case of U9-12 ages). A list of the players’ jersey numbers and unique assigned numbers are to be given to the scorekeeper in chronological order. A final play-off period (without a time limit) is to be started by the referee. At the end of each one minute interval the scorekeeper is to sound the horn which will be notification for each succeeding pair of players to exit the field of play (i.e. at the end of the 1st minute of play the 1st players listed on each team’s list must leave the field). Player numbers will be reduced each succeeding minute until a goal is scored by either team or the final TWO players face each other at which time the time intervals no longer apply. In the case of ONE ON ONE situation THERE WILL NOT BE A GOAL KEEPER FOR EITHER TEAM. During ONE on ONE play if a penalty kick situation occurs the kick must be taken on a goal without a keeper. The two touch rule is not in effect during One on One play. Substitutions will not be allowed in “Golden Goal” play-offs.

WEATHER
The tournament and its director cannot be held responsible for weather conditions. As such any adjustments to the tournament schedule (s) and game time (s), including cancellation of the tournament, due to weather conditions are solely the decisions of the tournament director. Refunds will not be given due to changes or cancellations brought about because of weather conditions.
