There are to be 7 Players in a team - one goalie and 6 pool players.
If a team has fewer than 5 players for the start of a game, they will lose by default. A maximum of 12 players may play for the team in any one game, apart from when a team has a second goalie, and then 13 players may play. (Note: If a team has two goalies then those players identified as goalies may ONLY play in goal during the game). There is no maximum limit to the number of players who may play for a team over the course of the championships.
For the Intermediate Schools Competition games, there will be two Divisions. Division 1 for stronger and skilled players and Division 2 for development. (Division 1 players should not play in Division 2 unless absolutely necessary, and refer to note above, and then they only play in goal)
No player may wear: jewellery, watches etc. while playing. All players must have their fingernails and toenails clipped as short as possible while playing. Nail checks will be done by the refs.
All teams may be required to complete/check the team list on the score sheet at least 10 minutes prior to the start of their game. Team Lists must be legible, correct as to cap numbers and display each player’s first and family names. Remember that cap numbers need to remain consistent during the course of the competition as this helps identify award recipients at prize giving.
