        • If you don’t have proof the game will result in an automatic FF 

    • A team may grant an additional 5 minutes to the requesting team at their own discretion.  

      • Games may not start past 10 minutes after the scheduled game time. 

        • Anything past 10 minutes will interfere with other games and leagues. (This will be strictly enforced)

      • At the resumption of the match the offending team will flip the puck into the stands resulting in a penalty shot. 

        • The opposing team may not move during until the penalty is taken. If they do and interfere with, they player flipping it over they forfeit their right to a penalty shot. 

        • If the offending team kills more than 1 minute trying to flip it over, the opposing team may quit out and restart the process. (Proof is required) 

    • If a player lags in the middle of the period you keep playing until intermission and quit out. Upon resumption of the game the offending team shall take a penalty. 

    • All lag outs will grant the offending team 5 minutes to get back into the lobby. If the offending player cannot resume you will have an additional 5 minutes to find a replacement. Best practice would be to have a player on standby.
