Roster & Gameplay Rules

All Aloha Tournament events are smoke free, pet free and alcohol free events. No grills, generators, noisemakers or air horns are allowed.  Thank you for respecting our fans and players!

All rules will be in accordance with NCAA standards unless otherwise noted.

  • Playing time will consist of 2 twenty minute running time halves with a five minute halftime.  Games will begin promptly.
  • Each team will receive one 30 second timeout each half at which time the clock will stop.  Timeouts will not carry over to the next half.  If a team does not return to the field in a prompt manner after the timeout they will either lose possession of the ball or be assessed a delay of game penalty.
  • The clock will stop on all whistles in the last 2 minutes of the game if the goal differential is 2 goals or less.
  • Playoff & Championship games will consist of two 15 minute running halves. A one minute timeout will separate the periods at which time the teams will change ends of the field. Each team will have one 30 second timeout per game at which the clock will stop. The clock will stop on all whistles during the last two minutes of the game.
  • There will be no overtime in regulation pool play.
  • All ties in playoff games will be decided by a sudden victory overtime period. Teams will remain at the same end of the field where they finished the game. If the game remains tied after 8 minutes, a one minute break will be called by the officials at which time teams will change ends.
  • All penalties will be running time, except when the game clock is stop-start. The penalty clock will begin when the official blows the whistle to restart play.
  • Substitutions will be on the fly only, except on a time serving penalty.  In that case the teams will have a quick substitution to get EMO or EMD on the field.
  • There will be no stick checks unless requested by the opposing coach.  If the stick is found to be legal, the challenging team will be assessed a timeout.  If no timeouts remain, a delay of game technical foul will be assessed.  If the stick is not legal, the appropriate penalty will be assessed.  Sticks must meet either NCAA or NFHS standards.
  • Fighting, as determined by an official, is an automatic ejection from the game.
  • Any team that forfeits a game during the tournament will be ineligible to advance to the playoffs, unless permitted at the direct discretion of the Tournament Director.
  • Forfeits will be considered a 4-2 victory for the team that is prepared to play.
  • Decisions on the field will be the final ruling. No rulings will be overturned after the game
  • No noise makers will be allowed at any field (horns, whistles, sirens, cowbells, etc.)  Offenders will be asked to leave the field.

Roster & Waiver Submission

Roster and Waiver Submission Process

Step 1: Coaches Only-Invite your players to join your team.

  1. To do this, please visit your Aloha dashboard and under “My Staff Assignments” click the “INVITE PLAYERS” button for your team(s). (Be sure not to click INVITE STAFF)
  2. To invite all the players at once, you can copy and paste an entire column of emails from a spreadsheet, but only submit one email per child. Otherwise, both parents will try to register the same child and it could invalidate your roster.
  3. If you have twins on your roster, you will need to re-send an invitation to the same parent again after they have registered their first child.
  1. You can log back into your dashboard and keep track of how many parents have registered and re-send the invitations if need be.

*Parents: The waiver process is all completed online. Your child’s coach should have sent you an email with an invite link to join the team for that Tournament. The link is specific for your child’s team and the event/division. If you did not receive this email/link, please contact your coach directly. They handle this part of the process. They can assist you or resend you another link. 

Step 2: Coaches-Upload final Roster and Waiver Verification Form.

  1. Once all your players have registered, you will need to submit a complete roster to Aloha Tournaments as required by their insurance provider. This also allows Aloha Tournaments to verify player/roster eligibility at the event if necessary.
  2. To submit the final roster, please complete this  Roster Verification Form.
  3. If you already have a roster created in your own format, you may submit that as long as it contains the following information for each player (First Name, Last Name, Jersey #, Date of Birth, Graduation Year, Street Address, Phone #). Sample Roster.

Tournament Policies

All Aloha Tournament events are smoke free, pet free and alcohol free events. No grills, generators, noisemakers or air horns are allowed.  Thank you for respecting our fans and players!

Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the tournament director reserves the right to:

  • Reduce the game times in order to catch up with the schedule.
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives or to preserve field conditions.
  • Reschedule games, if possible.
  • Convert tournament to a "Festival" format without playoffs or championships to provide the majority of the teams the opportunity to play as many games as possible.
     

Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the Aloha Tournaments website. However, weather conditions can change rapidly, and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather clears and fields are playable. 

If thunder or lightning is observed at any location, play will be suspended immediately, and players and fans will be required to leave the field. Play will be allowed to resume 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or sight of lightning is observed.  If a game is in progress:

  • The period will end immediately.
  • If a game is in the second half, the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded. 
  • If a game is in the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half. 
     

Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time. If the start of the second half of the suspended game delays the onset of the subsequent game the following actions will occur:

  • The suspended game will play a 20 minute running time second half.
  • Subsequent games will begin immediately after the preceding games (teams will warm up on the sideline prior to the game). These games will consist of one 35 minute running time period until games are back on schedule.  Teams will have one 30 second timeout per game not to be used in the last two minutes of the  game (the clock will not stop during these timeouts). 
  • Once games are back on schedule, they will revert back to two 20 minutes running time periods. 

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game, but we will not jeopardize the safety of any player. 

All games canceled due to weather will be considered a 4 - 2 win for both teams.

Refund Policy

  •  No refunds will be issued for any team that voluntarily drops from the tournament after the tournament registration deadline of 9/21/2018.
  • No refunds will be issues for any team that is disqualified after 9/21/2018 due to a violation of roster or tournament rules.

We will send you a Refund Request Form, where we will ask for information on how you would like your refund check to be sent. Upon receipt of this email, you will have 30 days to complete the Refund Request Form on behalf of your team and/or program, after which point you will forfeit your right to receive any cash refund and will be offered a site credit for the equivalent amount instead.
