Our court is still too big and yes, we are still lazy so we are returning with the second installment of everyone's favorite 4v4 tournament!

The Details:
- Games will be played for 12 minutes with no point limit.
~ Skunk rule: If a team is up by 7 points, then the game is over.
- Saturday will be Swiss rounds and Sunday will be a double elimination tournament.
~ This year we will be allowing 20 teams!

Tell all your friends, get your teams together and come have some fun!

Registration will begin at 12pm Central Standard Time on February 2nd. To register, send a email with your team name, each members name, each members dietary restrictions, and shirt size to a.hand@hotmail.com. Any emails send before noon Central Standard Time will be deleted.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~RULE SET UPDATE~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For this tournament, we will be using the 2012 NAH rule set (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-tj3tqs5MHTNWRmYTRkOWItOTliOC00NjFjLWFk...), plus a couple extras. The modifications will include a crease and mini jousts.

There will only be one defender allowed in the crease at a time. The second player may roll across the crease, but they are not allowed to stop. If they stop, the ref will count to three with slow arm movements, similar to being in the paint in basketball. After three seconds they will get a warning to move out of the paint. Once the warning is issued, the ref will count to two again and if the defender is still there, then they will get a 30 second penalty for his/her first offense, a 2 minute penalty for the second offense, and if they do it a third time, they will be ejected from the game.

For this tournament, we are excited to be introducing mini jousts. Instead of conceding half court when the ball is knocked out of play, stuck in a wheel, or shuffled into the goal, there will be mini jousts (similar to hockey face-offs). The mini jousts will happen on the nearest circle. Since we use a full size roller hockey court, we have 5 circles painted on the court that we want to put to use. The two jousting players will start on opposite sides of the circle, with the ball placed in the city. They will joust on the refs whistle; just like the start of a game. If the ref feels that a player is purposely throwing a ball off the court (to get out of a tough situation or whatever else), the player will get a 30 second penalty for delay of game.

One other thing worth noting is rule 12.1.7 of the NAH rule set. This rule states that “a delayed penalty can be called”, but for this tournament delayed penalties will be used throughout the entire game. So no need to worry about tapping back in after you do something wrong, you only need to do so if you dab.

missing the Grizzlies-Celtics game for this

Well I was considering flying to Seattle, but this might be a more affordable trip in March. Pumped.

thanks for getting the dates set ahead of time!

Wow, awesome.

Poster sucks.

agreed, you can have 1 chicken wing exclamation point (!) or 3 (!!!), but 2 is just tacky

Isn't this about when you did the Pullout last year? is that not a thing anymore? if so I'm sad

All your shots are block by I.

Still a thing. Just wanted to give this priority. we still have intent to do a pull out later in the summer.

if there's a BMX flyer you guys could just borrow the art from I would totally support that. maybe a double pizza air exclamation point chicken wing thing. all polo flyers should just steal BMX art from now on, it's not like BMX companies ever do it.

talk shit and burn bridges

not a big deal at all, but have ya'll thought about trying out a crease rule for this? just to mitigate the extra defense stacking that seemed to happen (mostly by my team).

I'll be bothering Aaron or whoever is in charge for a crease rule and an interference rule. Reffing will be taken more seriously this year too. We hope for some good competition and to really prove the 4v4 format on a big court!

Not that fun doesn't come first. We want everyone back from last year.

I'm definitely on board with a crease. It was just waaay too easy to stack 2 or 3 goalies in front of net. Lots of games being won 2-1 (at 15 minutes!).

I don't think it is really that necessary. Ok so your team stacked up players in front of goal...Did it help you? So it made for a long game but in the end where did your team finish? Did the team that won the tournament do this? How do you imagine this being officiated if it were?

We tied 7th, and I'm damn proud of that mister!

Yes, goalie stacking helped us.

And it's quite easy to officiate, I don't really want to argue about it though.

Hopefully Mission from God will show up with a +1.

You'll see. Unless you drilled out your eyes because they were too heavy.

Plus one. Going two generations of the same team.

Worth it.

I'm trying to guage some interest in Indy.

fun comes first. fuck your creases. see you in march.

Just curious do ya'll have dimensions for your court? We have a big rink we use for pickup in LA too.

185x85

321polo.net

there is a huge part of me that hopes you are asking because LA is planning on throwing Bench Minor 4 (vs. 4)

Ha! No just wondering what you guys think is big. The real Bench Minor 4 won't be at our normal rink, it will be at one about 2/3 the size.

Registration will begin at 12pm Central Standard Time on February 2nd. To register, send a email with your team name, each members name, dietary restrictions and shirt size to a.hand@hotmail.com. Any emails sent before noon Central Standard Time will be deleted.

Thank you guys!
