Scoring System to Determine Winners
During pool play, teams will be awarded points on the following basis:
- 3 points = Win
- 1 points = Tie
- 0 points = Loss
**If there are any forfeits, the average goals against in actual scheduled games played will be added to the total goals against to the team that won by forfeit** Forfeits count as an automatic win for team that has not forfeited.
Play off Procedures
In the event that there are two or more teams tied in points at the end of the tournament play, the following criteria will be used to determine playoff seeding:
- 1. Head to Head – if no clear winner in 3 way tie, move to next criteria
- 2. Goals Against
- 3. Shutouts
- 4. Coin Toss
All playoff games will be one 25-minute running clock game. If tied at the end of the game, sudden victory overtime will occur for playoff games only.
No time-outs are permitted. Champion games that are tied at the end of regulation will go to 3- minute sudden victory. If teams are still tied after sudden victory, then brave heart or coin toss will determine the winner to move forward. Both coaches must agree to brave heart; otherwise a coin toss will be used.

The 2017 tournament was dedicated to Katie King. Katie is a T3 player who recently developed cancer. Her story appears below.
The Play to Win tournament and the foundation will continue to make hospital visits over the holidays as well as donate money and gifts to Katie King.
You can support this cause in two ways. First, get together a team of 10 girls and enter a team into the tournament and support Katie. Second, is to donate to the foundation via the website or at the day of the tournament.
As some of you know, Oak Street 4th grader Katie King was diagnosed in late August with metastatic Ewing Sarcoma. She faces a long year of treatments ahead and will most likely receive the bulk of her care in an out of state hospital. One of the many, many unfortunate aspects of having a child who has an illness is that it also comes with astronomical costs for the family. We are trying to help deflect some of the costs for the King family, so they can focus all of their energy on helping Katie to get better. Aside from medical costs, they will also have so many other financial burdens to contend with–hospital parking, tolls, gas, food for the family during Katie’s hospital stays, potential hotel stays, items to keep Katie and her little brother Jake occupied during these long days, and the list goes on and on. In addition to this being a fundraising effort, we are hoping to “paint the town purple” with these shirts to show Katie, Kim, DJ and Jake that they are thought of and so cared for by our school community and our town. Please consider buying shirts for your family and/or making a monetary donation if you are so inclined to help a long time Basking Ridge family during this incredibly difficult time.
Thank you so much!
About the Play for Pay Foundation:
Payton Raichle is a twelve year old girl who has suffered from epilepsy since the age of one. Her life has been tough at times, with countless 911 calls, emergency room visits, long stays in hospital ICU units, and several extensive surgeries. Following four brain surgeries over the winter and months spent in intensive care, Payton finally seems to be on her way to a seizure-free life.
But Payton’s story is just one of many children coping with life-threatening illnesses. Every day, these children must deal with the heartbreak of living in pediatric intensive care units. During Payton’s last stay at NYU, she spent three months in and out of the hospital and its ICU. Over those three months, the Raichles met children suffering from epilepsy, heart disease, cancer, and other serious illnesses. Some could not leave their beds for weeks or even months at a time. For most of them, the small things in life that we so often take for granted became an instant source of happiness. It was with this thought in mind that the vision behind the Play for Pay Foundation was born.
Play for Pay aims to make these children’s hospital stays as fun as possible by providing them with these small pieces of normalcy and helping to keep their minds off of their medical issues.
Play for Pay intends to raise money to help children and families cope with the emotional, physical, and financial tolls taken when enduring such a serious situation. Through the foundation, the Raichles will visit these intensive care units to spread joy and happiness through simple gifts such as iPads, iPods, video games, educational games, and more. These items can help make hospital stays more bearable for the children, and iPads can help students, especially those with disabilities and medical conditions, continue to learn during their stays.
Please join the Play for Pay Foundation in putting a smile on the faces of those children who need it most.
Tournament t-shirts will be on sale at the Tournament Headquarters tent with all proceeds donated to the Play for Pay foundation. Food and beverages will be available on-site through The Atlantic Club.
What if it rains during the tournament?
Game play continues in the rain as long as the weather does not interfere with player safety. If there is thunder or lightning, all play is suspended for 30 minutes. Play may resume when the storm clears. The availability of shelter from rain varies by location.
If there is continuous heavy rain, facilities may close the fields. If fields are closed in advance of a tournament’s start time, an email and text alert will be sent to all registered players. An announcement will be posted on the homepage of the tournament website.
How are tournament schedules organized?
Each tournament is divided into brackets based on level of play. Team coaches are asked in advance of the tournament to rank their team’s performance level. This ranking is then used to determine the game day schedules.

Tournament schedules are posted as far in advance as possible. At the latest, a tournament schedule will be posted the week of the tournament.
