A player may only distribute the ball once during their possession. A player must distribute the ball within 6 seconds of taking possession. A goalkeeper is not allowed in the opposing players half of the field. If a successful save is made, play continues without hesitation or pause. If a rebound occurs that crosses the midfield line, only the goalkeeper whose half of play the ball is in has rights to the ball. A goal is awarded when the entire ball crosses the goal line, play is restarted by the scored upon goalkeeper. In the event of a goal or out of bounds, play is resumed from the goal line or end line by the goalkeeper owning the rights to the ball. The player scoring the greater number of goals during the Goalie War is the winner. A win is 3 points, a tie is 1 point, and a loss is 0 points. The top 2 in points in each division will play each other in a championship match. In the event of a tie at the end of the match it will go straight to golden goal. The field manager will yell golden goal at the end of the initial time to let the keepers know to keep playing until a goal is scored. The first goal wins the round.
