      The adult division will have two groups of five teams. Each group will play a round-robin
      totaling four matches per player. Ties are allowed in the group stage. First place in
      each group plays in the championship match. Second place in each group plays for
      third place. If there is a tie in the playoff matches we will adhere to the rules of how to
      determine a winner. In the event of a tie in the group, the tiebreaker is as follows:
       
      1) Head to head result
      2) Net goal differential (up to 4 per game)
      3) Most goals forward (up to 4 per game)
      4) Most shutouts
      5) Fewest goals allowed
      6) Coin flip
       
      The youth division will have seven groups of four teams. Each group will play a round-robin totaling three matches per player. Ties are allowed in the group stage. First place
      in all seven groups will be rewarded a quarter-final berth. The highest-ranked second
      place team will be rewarded the final quarter-final spot. In the event of a tie within the
      group, we will adhere to the group tie break rules seen above. The highest-ranked
      second-place team will be determined by the following process:
      1) Most points in group play
      2) Net goal differential (up to 4 per game)
      3) Most goals forward (up to 4 per game)
      4) Most shutouts
      5) Fewest goals allowed
      6) Coin flip
       
      The quarter-finals, semi-finals, third-place match, and championship match all require
      winners. No ties allowed in these phases for both divisions. See rules to adhere by if a
      game ends in a tie, but must determine a winner.
