Personal Fouls will be called VERY closely and lost-likely result in a multi-minute foul for the offending player.
No stick checks will be called by officials or coaches but a player may request his stick be checked for legality.
Ties will result in a braveheart because they are FUN!!. (1 goalie and 1 field player, goalie cannot cross midfield)
One 30 second time-out per HALF can be taken at any time per NFHS rules.
Ejections – 1st-sit out next game, 2nd-disqualified from any remaining games.
