If you are entering a team representing 2 age groups, for example, 1st/2nd grade team, you much enter the age group of the older players. This team would play in the 2nd grade division.
4 v 4 format to give all players more “touches” with the ball. No goalies
Cross field games on small fields
25 minute games, running time. Each team will play 3 games.
Team rosters should be around 9-12 players. Town programs can enter multiple teams into the jamboree.
Food and drinks will be available for purchase throughout the day
We encourage the coaches to help the players with on-field coaching, within reason.
There will be a 2 “attempted” pass rule before shooting. At least 1 pass must be made in your offensive end.
Subs can be made when the ball goes out of bounds. When subbing, coaches should sub all 4 players at the same time. Teams should also try to sub together to limit the number of stops. Coaches can also sub players on the fly if needed.
If there is a penalty, there will be a “play on” situation. If the team loses the ball immediately, the ball will be given back to them.
To keep the game moving and to limit the number of stops, there will only be a face-off at the beginning of the game.
After a goal, the team who was scored on will receive the ball. The defensive team must drop back past the midline.
No long poles, no body checks, no one-handed checks.
If your team is up by more than 4 goals, please encourage your team to try and work the ball around 1 time before shooting, and/or getting assisted goals.
