Romp Rule

  • In the spirit of sportsmanship, no team should run up the score on another team and humiliate them. Thus, in matches in which the score differential reaches five, the leading team must take appropriate measures to try to make the game more competitive. --- Coaches are reminded that implementation of the Romp Recommendation should be done discreetly.

Make-Up Games

  • If a game is canceled due to weather or any other reason, coaches should attempt to make up the game prior to the end of the season (usually a weeknight). While it is not mandatory, it is recommended that the game be re-scheduled in order to give each team its normal number of games, and to create fairer tournament brackets.
