Tournament Rules

  • Rules to note:

    • USA Softball Rules in effect

    • A minimum time limit of 1:30 minutes. Once an inning begins and time expires, the inning must be completed per USA Softball rules. Exceptions to this rule will be allowed in cases of inclement weather.

    • No Time limit for Championship games   

    • Home team is official scorer, please validate score between innings. ANY and ALL disputes shall be directed to the umpire crew at the time of the score challenge!

    • ALL head coaches MUST report their teams scores. We expect to receive score from both teams. Any games without scores reported will go down as a 7-7 tie.

  • Batting

    • Pool Play Games - The following batting line-ups are allowed.

      • Straight 9 and/or DP/Flex - Teams may bat 9 players with or without the DP/Flex.

      • Continuous Order - When batting “up to” all roster players, any additional batter(s) shall be listed as an EP and may be listed anywhere in the batting order and may play defense as any position.

      • Example - A team may choose to bat 11 players and list one additional player as a substitute. A team is NOT required to bat all 12 players.

    • Elimination Games

      • Teams may use “straight 9” or DP/Flex. Both lines may use only one EP in their lineup (a max batting order of 10 players).

Teams that bat everyone in their line-up will take an out if a player is removed for any reason other than an ejection. Teams will not be allowed courtesy runners, pinch runners or pinch hitters when batting everyone. If a player is ejected when batting everyone, the game will be forfeited.

  • Tiebreakers - Single elimination seeded brackets will be set using the following:

  1. Rank teams by winning percentage in their pool

    • If two teams are tied, compare head to head win-loss. If more than 2 teams are tied, skip this step

  2. If teams are tied, rank based on fewest runs allowed per game

  3. If teams are tied, rank based on most runs scored per game

  4. If teams are tied, a coin toss is used

  • Run Ahead Rule

    • ​Game will be complete if a team is ahead by the following runs:

      • 15 runs after 3 innings,

      • 12 runs after 4 innings,

      • 8 runs after 5 innings.

    • The run ahead rule will be in-effect for both pool and elimination games
