Each team is responsible for their warm-up and game balls and or any other items brought into the game. We are not responsible for lost items.
If a team forfeits two games by not participating; the team will be disqualified from the event and cannot participate in bracket/tournament play.
Once a team is leading by 20 points anytime a game, the clock will continue to run. The only time the clock will stop is for injuries or timeouts.
If the lead falls below 10 points, the clock will again be stopped for all whistle 

Pool Play ties will be determined by the following

1. Head to head competition
2. 15 point max point system (Point Differential)
         Teams will receive a point differential per game up to a maximum of plus             15 points for a win and a maximum of minus 15 points for loss. The                      team not involved in the tiebreaker will have its games eliminated. The               team with the highest point total will win the tiebreaker and the second               highest number will be seeded second, etc. If there are still three teams             tied, the team with the fewest points allowed in ALL games played in                   pool play wins. A forfeit is scored as a 15-0 game.

3. Least points given up
4. Total points Scored
5. Coin toss

Tie-Breaker Scenarios: 

The exposure system is set up with these rules to determine the standings.

1. If 2 teams have a tied record after Pool Play, the winner of the head-to-head matchup is awarded the higher seed.

2. If 2 teams did not play head-to-head, Point Differential (see above) is applied to determine seeding.

3. If 2 teams also have the same Point Differential, the team who allowed the least amount of points in Pool Play would be awarded the higher seed.  Using this formula, there is no benefit to running up the score, rather the benefit is in stopping the opposing team from scoring.

4. If 3 teams are tied, head-to-head matchups are irrelevant in determining seed for Bracket Play.

5. If 3 teams are tied, Point Differential is applied; the team with the highest Point Differential is awarded the high seed. First, the system will only count the games played amongst the teams within the tie. Next, if tie was unable to be broken from this way than all games played will be used for the point differential. 

6. If a tie in Point Differential exists, Points Allowed (see above) will determine seed for Bracket Play.


 As a sanctioning body of athletic events, shares the concerns being raised on a national and local level regarding concussions and concussion symptoms in participants, coaches/ managers and umpires/referees in sanctioned activities.

We encourages its directors, umpires, coaches, referees, teams, team managers, and all adults involved in youth activities and participants to learn all they can about concussions in athletics and requires each of them and each of the directors to follow all federal, state and local laws (including concussion training and reaction laws) with regard to athletic competition

In addition, we have added the following to the rule books of each sport which does not defer to another organization for its rule book:

Upon becoming aware that a participant or coach/manager of his team has received a suspected concussion (or has been struck in the head area with any significant force), the Team Manager will not allow that person to participate in any sanctioned event and if occurring during any  sanctioned event, shall have that person removed from the playing field of any sanctioned event.

Upon becoming aware that a participant, coach/manager or official/umpire/referee has received a suspected concussion (or has been struck in the head area with any significant force), an 5P Sports official/umpire/referee or director will have that person removed from the playing field of any  sanctioned event.

Without a written medical written clearance from a licensed medical doctor to return to play, such persons will not be allowed to return to the playing field in an sanctioned event.

For officials/umpires/referees, the medical written consent must be presented to the Team Manager and retained permanently by the State Director.

For participants and coaches/managers, the medical written medical consent must be presented to the Team Manager and retained permanently by the Team Manager.

Any Team Manager, who allows a coach/manager or participant back on an 5P Sports sanctioned event playing field without first obtaining the required written consent, may be suspended by the State Director for up to one year and upon request of the State Director, may be suspended for a longer duration by the 5P Sports disbarment committee.

State Directors allowing an official/umpire/referee back in the field of play without the necessary consent will be subject to being disciplined as determined by the 5P Sports Board of Directors.

In the event of severe head trauma in an 5P Sports sanctioned activity, the 5P Sports injured person will not be moved and an ambulance will be called, unless otherwise directed by a qualified medical professional.

The parent or guardian of the injured person, however, will not be bound by this protocol and may choose a different approach consistent with their legal rights as the parent or guardian.
