General Rules
● The game mode will be a 5v5 on Summoners Rift
● There will be 3 games played
● In the case 3 teams showing up, a round robin tournament will be created
● If 4 teams show up a tournament will be played single elimination with a best of 3 final
● Between games a 5 minute break will allow players to rest and coaches to put in substitutes
● Draft pick with NO BAN PHASE as to not target ban new players
● Team captains will meet to flip a coin to determine which side of the map they want after
that losing team gets to choose
● If for some reason there is a loss in network or other failure for several players the match
can be restarted
● If the situation occurs where all teams tie each other (1-1) the winner will be determined by
the shortest time taken to destroy the enemy Nexus.
● A spectator will be necessary to allow others to follow the game.
● Coaches will be able to talk with their team during the pick and ban phase of the game and
will leave once the loading screen has started. The coaches will then proceed to watch the
game and talk with parents explaining when necessary. Coaches will stand behind the
opposing teams players to watch the game and talk with parents.
● Players will not be allowed cell phones during play

Rules for Chat and Spamming
● Players will not use all chat to communicate across teams
● Over use of “Mastery Flashing”, taunt spamming, laugh spamming, and emote spamming
will be considered unsportsmanlike conduct (to be determined by coaches or referee)

Rules for Competitive play
Due to the range of beginner to intermediate players on the teams, the following rules are to
prevent the early taking advantage of a player who may be newer to League of Legends. These
strategies are uncommon in most professional play and thus prohibiting them will not hinder the
game play.

● No jungle invades at start of the game pre 3 minutes
● Standard lanes to start the game meaning no lane swap between bot and top or other lanes,
follow standard lanes of 1v1 in the top and mid lanes and 2v2 in the bot.

It should be stated that jungle invades can be used after the jungler has cleared their own jungle once or after the first gank or after the 3 minute mark (average clear time). This will allow new jungler to get comfortable and the team to not focus resources early to counter the pressure. The rules on lane swapping will apply until the 5 minute mark.
