All games take place at the lighted turf fields at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU). Teams play half-field, 7 v. 7 (six field players and a goalie) games. Games consist
of two 25-minute halves. No overtime will be played during the regular season. The
clock starts precisely at game time so teams should be on the field and in position
before the referee blows the whistle.
One referee will officiate each game. Game balls will be provided by the league, but
will not be available for warm ups. Each team must have a minimum of seven (7) players
to begin a match, with a maximum of seven (7) players on the field at any given time.
A five (5) minute grace period will be given before a forfeit is declared. Forfeits
count as a 1-0 loss. IfBOTHcaptains agree to playing with equal fewer numbers, the game will be considered a
legal contest. If both teams do not have enough players to field a contest, both teams
will receive a loss. Please make sure you and your team are familiar with the additional
game rules, some of which are particular to this league.
A copy of the schedule and current standing will be available at the game field each
week. These can also be accessed from this website.
Rain Cancellations will take place if conditions seem too dangerous (although we will
play in a drizzle). We will make every effort to reschedule canceled games, though
available times may be limited.
