Mercy Rule (Goal Differential) – After a 5-goal differential has been reached, the game clock shall run continuously except for heat time outs and injuries. For the remainder of the game, the clock will continue to run regardless of the goal differential. If a 9-goal differential has been reached at halftime or at any time during the second half, the game shall be terminated.

Uniforms: The NFHS uniform rule regarding home (dark) and visitor (white) colors is waived. When both teams are wearing the same color, the home team must adjust.

A Game Administrator must be appointed by the principal of each host school to supervise every varsity athletic contest. The Game Administrator must be someone other than the participating coaches. Ideally it should be a principal, athletic director, or another school administrator, but it may be the principal’s or athletic director’s designee due to staff commitments. The Game Administrator of the host school is required to conduct one meeting which must include the coaches, officials, and security personnel prior to the start of each varsity contest. Included in the pregame discussion is to be a review of the expected behavior of everyone involved in the contest.
