Rules


Points and League Position

Teams shall be awarded 3 points for a win, 2 points for a draw, 1 point for a

loss and 0 points for a non-fulfilled fixture (see info document for more

details).


Tie on points between two teams

 

In case of equality of points between two teams, precedence shall be given to

the team with the best head to head record (not including goal difference). Or,

if this is equal, the overall goal difference will determine the winner. If there is

still a tie, the team scoring the most number of goals shall be the winner, and

if at this point there is still a tie, the winners will be decided by lot.


Tie on points between more than two teams

In case of equality of points between more than two teams, a table shall be

formed to calculate the higher-placed team from the results between

the relevant teams (excluding goal difference). If there is still a tie, precedence

shall be given to the team(s) with the greatest goal difference in the matches

between the relevant teams. If there is still a tie, precedence shall be given to

the team(s) having scored the higher or highest number of goals in the

matches between the relevant teams. If there is still a tie, precedence shall be

given to the team(s) with the greatest goal difference in all matches played. If

there is still a tie, precedence shall be given to the team(s) having scored the

higher or highest number of goals in all matches played. If there is still a tie

betweenmore than two teams, the decision shall bemade by lot.


Game Rules

Timing: 4 8 minutes quarters based on a running clock. 1 minute

break between quarters and 2 minutes for half time

Official Fina rules should be followed as closely as possible for game

play. Please visit:

30 sec shot clock – this should be used if available.

Ultimately, common sense should prevail when rules may not apply. As

well as sticking to the guidelines, teams must agree to compete ‘in the

spirit of the game’ – that is, try their utmost to play all fixtures and

thereby maintain a fair league. This means allowing for deviations from

the rules to allow for completion of fixtures; if, for example, pool time is

limited, shorter quarters may be played. Both captains must agree to

any changes.


Equipment

 

The home team is responsible for providing the match balls and the poolbased

equipment. This includes the goals, 2 and 5 m markers and timing

equipment. Both teams should also try to bring both blue and white hats.


Referees

The games should be refereed in the same way as your current friendly

matches – this is normally a local referee, coach or knowledgeable player.

The responsibility lies with the home team to make sure there is a referee in

place.We are hoping to compile a list of official referees for each region who

would be willing to help with the refereeing but this is not ready yet. We are

also looking to set up some referring courses for club representatives to help

improve the level of in-club refereeing.

The referee can report any team if they feel that their behaviour was

unacceptable, and we will then deal with the situation. We feel strongly that

the referees are going out of their way to help the game and any dissent

towards them is unacceptable.
