To combat heat, and open up even more space, we are switching the fall format back to 5v5 play, 6v6 if we count goalkeepers if and when available and playing, and we are also instituting the following rules:

1) 5v5 in the field

2) 30-second shot clock begins upon possession

3) Offensive Team must also make a minimum of 2 passes, except on a defensive turnover leading to a breakaway fast break

4) Penalties result in a 15-second 3v2 advantage play

5) Game time will run 60 minutes total, but will consist of 12-13 minute quarters to allow for water breaks, with substitution changes and/or other water breaks during each quarter.
