DATE: Sunday, December 21, 2014
VENUE: Sportlink – 2 Hanover Road, Vermont South
PRICE: $20 per player ($30 per player, if playing in more than one All Stars team).
ALL PLAYERS MUST BE TICKED OFF AND HAVE PAYMENT READY, PRIOR TO THEIR FIRST GAME.
TOURNAMENT FORMAT: Each Team will play 6 matches, 15 minutes in length, in the Round-Robin stage against each of the All Star teams.
The top 4 teams at the conclusion of the Round-Robin stage will progress to the Finals Series.
Matches run for 15 minutes. If a round concludes with less than 2 minutes remaining, the match is completed. When or if the final round hits the 15-minute mark, the team with more players on the court wins that final round.
At the Round-Robin Stage, if the score is tied at the end of the match, the final result is a Draw. Teams will receive 1-point each.
Rule Alterations: The Advantage Rule and Soft Line Boundary Rule will be trialed in the All Stars Cup (as we did in the Champions League last week), with a view at implementing these rules in all our competitions in 2015.
- Advantage Rule:
– The team with more balls on their side of the court is obliged to throw first. If some balls are outside the court boundary, the team is obliged to throw as long as more balls are on their half of the court.
– If each team has 3 balls, then the team with more players on court is obliged to throw first.
– If both teams have 3 balls, and the number of players on court is equal, then the team that threw last is excused from throwing, and it is the opposing team’s turn to throw. Once the referee has indicated who must throw first, the team that is required to do so has 5 seconds to initiate a throw. If time has elapsed, then the team with the advantage will be required to roll their balls across the court to the opposition.
- Soft Boundary Rule:
– A player who touches or steps outside the side of the court during the course of play, will be called out by the referee. The only exception to this rule, is if a player is retrieving a wayward ball on the side of the court and has their hand clearly raised.
