8 The top 2 teams determined by the overall point score will play in a grand final at the end of the day to determine the champion school for each division. Where a two pool system is operating there will be semi finals played between Broken Bay affiliated schools only to determine positions in the final.
9 At the conclusion of the round robin, if a tie occurs the results will be based on goal average
for each team as follows:
I. Highest goal difference
II. Most goals scored in favour
III. Least goals scored against
IV. The school that won the previous encounter between the 2 teams in their pool game.
V. Goal average: Total number of goals scored by the team, divided by the total number of goals scored against the team, multiplied by 100 and divided by the actual number of matches played by that team. The total number of matches played includes a match a team has forfeited, but does not include a match where a team has received a forfeit.
10 If a draw occurs in the semi finals or final and after extended time of 2 minutes each way (30 second half time) a draw still occurs, the team finishing higher in their pool will advance to the final (ie the team who finished first) and in the final the two teams competing will be deemed joint champions.
11 Medals will be awarded to the grand final winners, and runners up.
12 If the day is abandoned after every team has played at least 3 games medals will be awarded. Where a tie exists, goal averages will be used to determine first and second place.
13 Schools may enter one team in each division.
14 To follow NSW CCC Championship rules 'Opens' teams are allowed players in Y7-12.
15 Students should only play in one division unless permission is granted by the carnival convenor due to exceptional circumstances on the day (eg multiple injuries). Once a student plays in up in a higher division, she must remain with that team for the remainder of the day otherwise points won by both teams while she was playing will be forfeited.
16 No injury time will be played except in the grand final. A maximum of 2 minutes injury time will be played at the end of the grand final, if an injury has occurred during the match.
17 In the event of a critical incident the carnival may be stopped temporarily or terminated depending on the severity of the individual case.
18 Each school is responsible for the supervision of their teams and keeping their own area clean.
19 All matched will be conducted as per NNSWA Ltd Carnival Rules unless otherwise stated.
20 First Aid will be available at the venue in the first aid room between courts 15 and 17.
