Teams

  • Each team has a maximum of 7 players with a team captain
  • Only 5 players are to be on the field per team
  • A team may start the game with at least 3 people present
  • If at least 3 people of a single team are not present at the start time, the game is forfeited
  • Team players can start warming up half hour before their game starts.                                                   
  • Captains from each team will work together to resolve disputes and to track scores.
  • Both team captains to report scores to GA at the end of each game.                                          

Group Stage

Each team will play 6 games. The amount of points amassed will be used to seed the teams for the later rounds.  Ties will be awarded in the Group Stage.

Later Rounds

The seeding for the semi-finals will be provided by the number of points awarded from the group stage.  The tiebreakers for the same amount of points amassed will be, in this order: head to head results, goal differential, goals for, sportsmanship.  The winner of each semi-final will play in the final.  Games resulting in a tie score will go into a 10 minute overtime period. Prior to starting, the teams will be given a 5 minute break. The overtime period will be broken into 5 minute intervals on each side of the field, with no breaks between intervals. If the game is still tied after the 10 minutes, a shoot-out round will be determined.

The champion of the Gold Division will be photographed and published as the 2014 SURF Summer Soccer League Champion.
