2021 League Rules
• Games played on Sunday afternoons between 10:00am and 7:00pm
• Divisions will be U9 (Under age 9 as of September 1 st , 2021) U11 (Under age 11 as of September 1 st , 2021) U13 (Under 13 as of September 1 st , 2021) No exceptions. Players can play up a division but may not play down. Teams found to have an older player playing in a game will cause their team to receive a forfeit recorded for that game and the previous 2 games, which will significantly affect their chances to make the championship games.
• Players can NOT play for multiple teams in the same age group. If a player is found to be playing for more than one team in the same age group, that team will receive a forfeit for the current game and the previous two games. A player can play for a team in their own age group and then also play for a team in the next older age group. **Goalies are the only players permitted to play for multiple teams in the same age group.
• There will be an 70/30 rule in place as of the 2021 CPYFHL season for U11 and U13. To ensure this league is a school district based league and not club teams, each team must have at least 70% of their team residing in the school district that the team is representing. If a team fails to comply, they will receive a forfeit for the current game and the previous 2 games. **This only applies to U11 and U13 divisions and field players.
• Each game will have one or two officials (we will make every attempt to have a PIAA licensed official but it isn’t guaranteed)
• Teams will put together their own weekly practice schedule based on their team’s availability
• Games will be played 7v7 and can be played with or without a goalie.
• Fields should be approximately 60 yards by 40 yards.
• Outdoor rules will apply with the following exceptions
o U9 will NOT carry out corners.
o Each U9 team may have up to 2 coaches on the field with players to direct game play. Coaches may not interfere with the game.
o U11 and U13 will complete corners if there is a designated "circle markings" on the field.  For Mechanicsburg and Susquehanna Township fields, the "numbers" will designate the "scoring circle".
o If a field does not have a designated circle for scoring then goals can be scored from anywhere on the field
o In situations where a corner will not be performed: instead of a corner a free hit will be awarded the offense 16 yards from the end line going towards goal when there is a defensive foul inside the 16 yard line.
o U13 & U11 will complete strokes in the event that a play warrants a stroke. U9 will not carry out a stroke. In the event that a goal is, in the official’s opinion, clearly stopped by an illegal play by a defender (ex. Defender stopping the ball with his/her feet on the goal line, etc.) the official will call a goal because this division does not allow a stroke to be called.
• Games will be two 20 minute halves running clock with a 5 minute half time and ties will not be played out until the championship game
• Team Cost is $650 for the season, checks made payable to “Central Penn Mini Sticks” or paid online via Tourney Machine
• Player Waiver for every player must be submitted before the team’s first game. Players may play up a division but older players may NOT play down. A violation to this rule will cause a forfeit for each game this rule was not followed and a forfeit for the previous 2 games and will impact a team’s opportunity to compete in the league championship.
• Teams are required to wear matching shirts or uniforms with numbers on their backs.
• Home team is required to wear a white or light colored shirt while the away team is to wear a dark color. Failure to show up in the correct color will result in a forfeit if team cannot provide an acceptable solution.
• Teams unwilling to travel to an assigned away game will result in a forfeit and thus affect their championship rankings. A forfeit will be recorded as 0-3 score.
• Host site will supply timer and game balls
• Players are required to wear shin guards and mouth guards, goggles are optional but recommended.
• In the event of bad weather or any need to cancel a game, the host site is responsible for contacting Belinda Heltzel and the head coach of the away teams.
• Team scores MUST be emailed to Belinda Heltzel at [email protected] before the end of the game day or sent as a text to 717-343-8647.
• There will be a league championship game at the end of the season for U11 and U13 divisions.  The top 8 teams based on season record will play for 1st , 2nd and 3rd places.  Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 teams based on the tournament results.
• Continuing in 2021!!! Copy of birth certificate for every player on your roster will be due the Monday before the league championship for all teams who advance to the championship. Team roster must be the SAME roster that was provided at the start of the season. Feel free to collect those at the start of your season but they are only due from teams who will be playing at the championship. Failure to submit birth certificates or evidence of an ineligible player will result in your team being eliminated from the league championship. We are enforcing this rule to try and promote an equal playing field for all teams.
