No timeouts are permitted during the tournament. Mercy rule is in place as well, meaning that no more than a five (5) goal differential will be recorded for any game. Games can end in a tie as it is a round robin competition. Tie-breaking procedures will use statistics AFTER the mercy rule was applied, i.e.:if a team wins 6 – 0, they will only receive credit for 5-0 regardless of the actual score. Referees are required to mark actual scores on games sheets. The mercy rule is applied by headquarters prior to recording final score and posting the game results.
