Watching Players During Practice
Parents are welcome to watch practice. However, we require that you stay behind the fence adjacent to the tennis courts or watch from the game field stands.
You will not be allowed to watch practice from the tennis court surface or on the practice field.
Abiding to this procedure will allow the coaching staff and athletes to concentrate solely on the players practice without interruption or distraction.
Player Position Assignments
Player Position Assignments are Determined Solely by the Coaching Staff
The minimum playing time for each player is determined by the number of players officially weighed in and ready to play. Playing Time Rule:
1. Four (4) plays per half if a team has 30 or more players.
2. Five (5) plays per half if a team has 20-29 players.
3. Six (6) plays per half if a team has 19 or less players.
24 point Game Rule
When a team leads by twenty-four (24) points or more, five (5) designated players from that team shall not play Offense until the score difference is less than 24 points.
Those five (5) designated players can only play Defense while the 24 Point Game Rule is in effect.
