Each match will consist of two 25-minute halves and a five-minute halftime. There will be 5 minutes between each match. In addition, due to some of the additions noted below, we have accounted for this schedule to run a bit over.
The rules for Bench Minor II will follow the official NAH ruleset, with the following exceptions:
Also, a word on fighting......fighting will be allowed as long as the two people involved have both feet on the pedals of their bike and are NOT being supported by any other player or the boards. Fighting ends once one or both players have a foot off the pedals/on the ground. If two players engage in a fight of this kind, each will be given with a five-minute penalty. If one player initiates a fight and the target player does not retaliate, the five-minute penalty will be given to the player who initiated the fight.
Any player who continues to fight once either player has touched the ground will be ejected from the remainder of the match and not be allowed to play in the following match.
Any player who attempts to fight a referee will be removed from the tournament.
Any player who intentionally hits another player with a mallet will be removed from the tournament.
