                             i. If this occurs, teams will resume play in a 4v4 format.

V. Timing and Overtime

              1. Regular Season games are played on a 40-minute continuous clock with two 20-minute halves, unless one team gains a 35-point advantage at which point the game will be scored final as is.

i. The losing coach will have the opportunity to continue play in an exhibition format.

              2. Halftime is three minutes.

              3. Each time the ball is spotted, a team has 25 seconds to snap the ball.

              4. Each team has three 60-second timeouts per game.

VI. Scoring

4a. A dropped snap in the endzone will result in a loss of down and the ball being returned to the original line of scrimmage.

VII. Coaches

2. One coach per team is allowed on the field of play for play-calling purposes.

i. All on-field coaches must remain completely out of the play during live balls; and offensive coaches should remain 10-yards behind the line of scrimmage.

IX. Live Ball/Dead Ball

7ai. If the ball hits the ground as a result of a bad snap, the down is consumed, and the ball is returned to the original line of scrimmage.

X. Running

              4. Toss, Sweeps, and Pitches are permitted behind the line of scrimmage only.

              10. Offensive players need not stop their motion once the ball has crossed the line of scrimmage but cannot impede any defenders’ path to the ball carrier.
