Competition Rules and Format: 
Modified National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) rules (www.nirsa.org) will govern the competition. Also, in partnership with the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation & Culteral Services Flag Football program, a modified Adult Flag Football Rulebook will apply. When registering, each team must specify either the recreational or competitive event.  The format is 8v8; minimum team size is 8 players per team.  The maximum team size is 12 players per team. Each individual player will be registered by his/her coach and must sign the roster/waiver; if under 18 a guardian must sign the roster/waiver. Team coaches must complete a team entry form with roster/waiver signed by each player. The signed roster can be submitted to the RMSG office in advance but must be turned in to the RMSG Commissioner prior to your team's first game.
  
Each team is guaranteed a minimum of 3 games. The tournament will be modified pool play, dependent on the number of teams registered. The top teams will advance to bracket play. Games will consist of two 20 minute halves with a running clock until the last two minutes of the game. The clock will stop in the final 2 minutes of the game. If a team is down by 18 or more, the game will end at the 18 minute mark of the second half. Divisions maybe cancelled or combined based on Commissioner discretion and final registrations.
