We will follow the USBOXLA rule book with the following changes.

  • No cleats are allowed at this facility.  Just flat bottoms shoes.
  • Goal Sizes = PeeWee Goal Size 4’x4′ and Bantam & HS Goal Size 4’x4’6″​
  • 3 x 12 min running time periods.
  • 2 min rest between periods.
  • Last minute of the 3rd period is stop-time if teams are within 2 goals.
  • Game clock starts on time whether the teams are ready or not.  Any team in violation will be given a 2 min delay of game penalty.
  • 1 30-second timeout per game per team.  A time-out stops game & penalty time.
  • Pool & Bracket Play – If tied after regulation time teams immediately proceed to a USBOXLA Shootout (3 shooters each and the home team decides on whether they will shoot first or second).  If tied after that, there is a sudden death shootout round (all rostered players must shoot before any player shoots twice).
  • The championship game will play One 5 minute sudden victory over-time.  If it is still tied then a shootout will decide the champion.

Tie Breakers (Updated 1/4/2023)

  • Points – 2 points for a win. 0 points for a loss
  • Head to Head – This breaks ties based on the record (or points, if points are used) against the teams tied with. For example, if 3 teams have the same overall record at 4-2 and all 3 of the teams played each other an equal number of times and one teams record against the other two was 2-0 and another was 1-1 and the other was 0-2. This tie-breaker would order them accordingly. If all three teams had identical 1-1 records, this tie-breaker would not be used.

It should be noted that this tie-breaker is completely ignored if all of the teams tied do not play each other an equal number of times. For example, if there are 3 teams tied and one team played the other two, but the other two did not play each this tie-breaker will be ignored (regardless of the outcome of the two games played by the first team)

  • Goals Allowed – The total of a teams opponents score. The smallest total wins the tie-breaker.
  • Goals Scored – The total of a team’s score. The higher total wins the tie-breaker.
