U8-U12 will play two five (5) minute periods played to completion.
U12 11v11-U15 will play two ten (10) minute periods played to completion.

PENALTY KICK ELIMINATION
For 11v11 matches, the players on the field at the end of the match are eligible to take penalty kicks. For 9v9 and 7v7 matches, all players eligible to play at the end of the match are eligible to take penalty kicks. If a team has less than 10 eligible players, then both teams will be reduced to the same number of kickers.
The coaches will select 5 players to take kicks in the first round and provide the kicking order. If after the fifth kick the teams are tied, then the coaches will select a different set of 5 players and the order in which they will take kicks. If penalty kicks continue to rounds 11 thru 15, the coaches can pick 5 players from all eligible players and provide the kicking order. In rounds 16 thru 20, those who kicked in rounds 11 thru 15 are ineligible.
Both teams will partake in the first 5 rounds of kicks unless a team has scored more goals than the opponent can score (ie up 3-0 with 2 kicks left). After the 5th round, all subsequent rounds are sudden-death. As soon as a team finishes a round with more goals than the other the match is ended.
Protests will not be allowed.
If a game is temporarily suspended due to weather problems, each coach must instruct their players to leave the fields and go to the safety of their cars. Players should remain in their cars until the referees reenter the field. The coach of each team must check with their site's tournament headquarters for instructions. The tournament committee reserves the right to shorten or cancel games to protect the participants on the field.
Coaches are required to bring player cards and medical release forms to every game.

Build out lines are to be drawn on each side of the field halfway between the Penalty Area line and the Halfway Line. Once a goal kick is awarded or the goal keeper takes possession of the ball with the hands, the opposing team must move outside the Build Out Area line and remain there until the ball is put in play.
The ball is back in play when (1) a Goal Kick leaves the penalty area (2) The goal keeper places the ball on the ground and it is kicked (3) the goal keeper throws or rolls the ball. Once the ball is in play the opposing team may enter the defending team’s build-out-area. If the defending team takes the Goal Kick early or the Goal Keeper releases the ball into play before the opposing players move outside the Build-out-area, play will continue. The defending team has chosen to skip the build-out advantage.
The goal keeper shall not punt nor drop-kick the ball. The goal keeper has 6 seconds to release the ball into play once the opposing team has moved beyond the build-out-area.
