Keeper Wars Rules:
Two opposing goalkeepers attempt to score on each other. The first player to score the set number of goals (two or three depending on early vs. late round and age group), or to possess the higher score at the end of two minutes, wins the match. If there is a tie, the match becomes sudden death and will continue until one player scores. This is a single elimination tournament.
The field is divided into two equal sides with a centerline in the middle. Players may kick, throw, punt, or otherwise propel the ball from their side of the field. If a player steps on or over the line while taking a shot (thrown, kicked, or punted) any resulting goal will be disallowed.
Play continues until the ball is out of bounds. If the ball goes out of bounds possession will be given to the player on the side of the field that the ball exited regardless of who touched it last.
Goals Required/Time by Division:
10U—Early rounds are 90 seconds and first to two goals. Final 16 are two minutes and first to three goals.
