Tournament Details

Game Time Sports and St. Peters Rec Plex

Tournament Rules:
Teams will have 5 minutes to warm up before their game and 5 minutes for half-time.  

All games may start up to 10 minutes early (except the 1st game of the day). This has always allowed us to run on time or ahead of schedule the entire tournament. If the previous game on your court ends early you will have 5 minutes to warm up, then your game will start early. We will not start a game more than 10 minutes earlier than the scheduled time.

If a team is winning by 20 points or more in the 2nd half it will be running clock. If the lead drops below 20 points it will return to normal clock.

After the game one person from each team will text in the court, scheduled game time, division and score details to (636) 244-8763

Final thoughts:
It is our goal to shine the light of Jesus to all we encounter. This includes our referees. Referees have a challenging job. They will do their best. Referees will not criticize players, coaches or fans. Please encourage your players, coaches and fans to not criticize referees.
