 Biscuit Bowl format


5 on 5 format:

Each team will designate one team captain. This captain will be the individual registering the team, and the main contact for the team. Captains will be responsible for ensuring all dressing rooms are kept clean and tidy upon leaving the room.

Three game guarantee gives you the ability to lose 2 games and still battle your way back to the championship game. There are two brackets, the winners bracket and the losers bracket. Each teams first game is in the winners bracket. The winning team stays in this bracket and the losing team moves to the losers bracket. Teams in the losers bracket have a chance to battle their way back to the championship game. If you end up in the losers bracket, you may end up playing as many as ten games to battle your way back to the championship game.

Each game will consist of two 15-minute runtime periods with a 5-minute pregame warm-up and 3-minute intermission in which teams will switch sides. Championship Game in each division will be three 20 minute runtime periods.

Minimum of 10 players and 1 goalie, maximum of 17 players and 2 goalies per team.

Floods after every game.

No timeouts permitted.

Pucks will be supplied for warm-up.
