All games to 15 with one timeout per half and a floater.
90-minute soft cap and 100-minute hard cap
- The soft cap occurs once a predetermined time of play has elapsed. At the soft cap, play continues until the current scoring attempt is completed. If, after the current scoring attempt is completed, the game total has not yet been reached by one team, one is added to the higher score and the resulting number is the new game total.

If, after the current scoring attempt is completed, the score is tied, play continues until one additional goal is scored. Otherwise, the game ends. The team with the most goals at the end of the game is the winner.

High Altitude Tips
Aurora’s lowest elevation of 5,285 feet (more than a mile high) is found at the point where Sand Creek crosses the city limit in the northwest corner of the city, while the highest elevation of 6,229 feet is on the extreme southern border of the city in Douglas County near Gartrell roads.
In Colorado’s rarified air, golf balls go ten percent farther… and so do cocktails. Alcoholic drinks pack more of a wallop than at sea level. The sun feels warmer because you're closer to it, but your coffee is cooler because water boils at 202 degrees. Colorado is also extremely dry, and with less water vapor in the air at this altitude, the sky really is bluer in Colorado. But there's 25 percent less protection from the sun, so sunscreen is a must.
DRINK WATER both before your trip to Aurora, Colorado, and while you are here. Drinking plenty of water is the number one way to help your body adjust easily to our higher altitude. The low humidity in Colorado keeps the air dry, like the desert, so you need about twice as much water here as you would drink at home. It is also recommended that you go easy on the alcohol in the mountains and in Aurora, as its effects will feel stronger here. The effects of exercise are more intense here as well. If you normally run 10 miles a day at home, you might try 6 miles in Aurora, Colorado
Eat foods high in potassium, such as; broccoli, bananas, avocado, cantaloupe, Celery, greens, bran, chocolate, granola, dates, dried fruit, potatoes, tomatoes
What to bring: Aurora receives over 300 days of sunshine each year (more than San Diego or Miami). Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm… even in winter. There is 25% less protection from the sun’s rays at Aurora’s 5,285 feet elevation.
Weather: Two days before your trip to Aurora, Colorado check into www.weather.com for the latest on weather and temperature. Please use this information to pack appropriately. Because Aurora is closer to the sun, it can feel much warmer than the actual temperature during the daytime, but then become very chilly after sundown, particularly in the spring and autumn. It is best to layer your clothing. July averages in Aurora: 34% humidity, 89 high/58 low, 2.32 inches of precipitation, 70% sunshine.
Altitude: Don't let anything you hear about the mile-high altitude scare you. The air is just thinner and dryer. In fact, many people with respiratory problems, including our Governor, move to Colorado for the benefits of the dry air. Just follow these simple tips and you will very likely not even notice the difference.

We're getting some inquiries regarding jerseys and there is some flexibility this year on jerseys. Mostly USAU asks that teams represent the sport well, ex: no poorly spray-painted cut-off t-shirts. If you could get jerseys in time, that would be great, but having come from a jersey printing company, we know the turnaround isn't always the quickest. So just make sure y'all look good, no inappropriate items, same color, no gray, the usual.
