All games are 14 minute running periods. Every 2 minutes a buzzer is sounded for shift change. No stoppage of clock unless it is for an injury. We have a curfew on each game/ice slot of 55 minutes.
Ref should pick up puck on shift changes until new players have entered and old players have exited. Then drop puck in same general area as it was located at sound of buzzer. Game on.
Faceoffs should occur at the beginning of periods.
If a penalty is called, player should be pointed to bench; team skates short-handed the remainder of that 2-minute shift.
Teams will be awarded 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss. In the case of a tie, the following tie breakers will be used. If more than two teams are tied, the tie breakers are used to first determine the top seed, then if needed start at the beginning to apply to the remaining teams.
Pool play games and any consolation games can end in a tie after regulation. For Championship games, or playoff games where a winner advances, the following overtime rules will be used.
Teams must submit a roster when checking in at the tournament. Teams must also bring roster stickers for all game score sheets or make sure to fill in the roster on the score sheet before each game.
