All Games will be played under the current 11th Edition Rules with the common experimental rules (Contact call, 20 yd endzones)

Elite Division:

Round Time: 2 Hours

Games to: 15 Points

Caps: 85min (Soft)/105 (Hard)


  • 2/half, 1 time-out in Overtime (once score is tied at 14-14 and game is to 16 or more)
  • Caps DO NOT affect time-outs

 While one elite game each round will be observed, we’d like to ask each team to work to follow the rules for time between points and in timeouts as well as minimize delays on calls.  Let’s work together to both maximize the number of points played as well as simulate nationals time lines as closely as possible.
