RULES — All games at LONG LOTS — Be there ready to start at 6:15 pm sharp! — Everyone must bring a ball!
1) 20-minute halves, running time. Approximately 5-10 minute halftime. Shin guards are mandatory.
2) 6-v-6 plus 1 keeper; if both teams agree, they can play 7-v-7 plus 1 keeper. Keepers may use their hands WITHIN REASONABLE AREAS. Subs may enter on any out-of-bounds or dead ball; no subbing on the fly.
3) No referees; call your own fouls. No penalty kicks. Watermelon Cup administrators* will be in attendance at all games, and may eject or ban players for egregious or repeated fouls.
4) No offsides, though goal-hanging is severely discouraged. This is the Watermelon Cup; if you can’t play defense as well as offense, find another sport.
5) 3 points for a win; 1 for a tie.
6) *Watermelon Cup administrators: Dan Woog, Kurt Dasbach. Yes, Dasbach plays. He’s a very fair guy. This isn’t the Supreme Court. Get over it.
