·No Guest Players are allowed

·New players will NOT be added to rosters solely for the playoffs. All players (including dual roster players) must be on the roster prior to April 1, 2024.

· Schedule changes will NOT be made to accommodate dual roster players; dual roster players that have conflicting scheduled times must play with their primary team unless released by HC.

·It is the responsibility of the Head or Assistant Coach to verify their rosters in Team Central Team Accounts to make sure they are accurate. If a player is not listed on their roster, they will NOT be able to play in WOC.

·Scheduled times of the games are FINAL.  Changes will NOT be made to days and/or times at any point the week of or day of the event unless necessary for staffing or field availability.

·Regardless of weather conditions, coaches and their teams must appear on the field, ready to play as scheduled at least 15 minutes prior to game time. Failure to appear will result in forfeiture of the game.  Only the Tournament Judicial Committee can postpone or cancel a game.

·In the event inclement weather forces cancellation of a game after at least 20 minutes have been played, the game shall be considered official and the score at the point of cancellation shall be the final score.

·If any teams do not arrive at past the 5 minute mark of the start of the game time, this will be considered a FORFEIT. Teams are disqualified and will not advance.

-If after Round 1, teams/coaches say that they cannot play in Round 2, teams are disqualified and will not advance. This will be noted after the season and may disqualify that team for the WOC Playoffs next season.

·All players must be present for the pre-game roster check to play in the first half.  Any players arriving after the pre-game roster check will need to check in with the Field Marshal before being given permission to enter the game.  Players will then have to be properly checked in (game card roster check, equipment check, jewelry check, etc.) by the referee(s) at a stoppage of play to enter the game. 

Please note that the stoppage of play is chosen at the referee’s discretion which could include waiting until halftime.

Field Marshal Station:

Mueller: In the office next to the Concession Stand by M5 (Field 5)

Woodlands: Under the pavilion next to the Concession Stand by W2 (Field 2)

·All game scores are FINAL! No protests are accepted and the decision on the field will stand.  Coaches must contact a field marshal with questions or issues before signing the game card.

·Players receiving a red card or a total of two yellow cards during the tournament will be ineligible for their team's next game. The Tournament Judicial Committee reserves the right to suspend or expel any player, coach, or spectator from the tournament at any time for unruly conduct

·The referee of each game will forward to the appropriate field marshal his/her official written game report, including the final score, the name and number of each coach, player, or person cautioned or ordered from the field, and reason for any such disciplinary action. The coach of each team must sign the game report at the end of each game.

·Coaches are held strictly accountable for the conduct of their teams, parents, and supporters. Abusive behavior toward the referee, opponents or tournament staff will NOT be tolerated. Such misconduct and breaches of sportsmanship shall be turned over to the Tournament Judicial Committee for possible suspension or forfeiture of the game

Penalty Kick (PK) Shootout Format:

No game can end in a tie for the WOC so once regulation time has expired, you must go straight into a PK Shootout.  The only players allowed to participate are those that were on the field when time expired; no subs are allowed after time has expired/the end of regulation. 

TIED GAMES (Round 1 Games)

1.    At the end of time regulation, precede straight to penalty kicks. The away/visitors team will call the coin toss.  If they get the coin toss correct, they get to choose who shoots first/second.  If they lose the coin toss, the home team gets to choose.

2.    Each team will choose 3 shooters and will need to tell the referee the order they are shooting in; record the jersey number on the PK Shootout score sheet in the order given.

3.    Each team will then alternate shots based on the coin toss and all three shooters will kick; most goals scored out of three shots wins.

4.    If still tied after 3 shooters, both teams must choose 3 new players. All the players on the field will need to shoot (including goalies) before the first shooter can kick again.

5.    All players on the field at the end of regulation must kick in the 3-shooter format before bench players will be eligible to kick so if there aren’t exactly 3 players left when the goalie kicks, kicker #1 and/or #2 will need to fill in to complete 3 shooters for the set.


TIED GAMES (Round 2 Games)

Follow the Round 1 steps until #4 and then for Round 2 games, use the process below:

If still tied after 3 shooters, it goes to sudden death penalty kicks (1 shooter per team) keeping the same order and alternating team shooter. All the players on the field will take a shot,  including goalies, before the first shooter can kick again or bench players are eligible.


If part of Saturday is rained out, games will be moved to Sunday with a modified schedule although fields/times/game lengths may vary based on playability; Consolation games will then be eliminated and  PK Shootouts will occur to determine winners in place of Championship Games.   If all games rain out on Saturday, then placement may be determined solely by PK Shootouts.  If all games rainout for the entire weekend, games may be moved to a different weekend if possible but may be canceled and Regular Season standings will be used to determine awards.
