Mini Round Robin Games

MINI ROUND ROBIN GAMES

Mini Round Robin Game Procedures

Instead of scheduling double headers or by weeks for teams when an odd number of team is available, we typically choose to use a Mini Round Robin. This is when three teams play a round robin of three half-time games. This allows all three teams to play what adds up to be one full game. In these procedures, each game of a mini-round robin games is called a mini-game. 

Coin Toss - Only one coin toss before the first mini-game is needed. See the examples below. 

Substitution Breaks - There will be only one substitution break about half way for each mini-game. 

Line-Up Cards - There should be a line-up card for each team. Teams should mark their substitutions for both of their halves (just like a normal game). The only difference will be that they have two different opponents. This means it is possible that a player may not play at all in one of the mini-games (since each mini-game is a half). If coaches choose to use two line-up cards, make sure they indicate first or second mini-game. All players should play AT LEAST one half (two quarters for games with quarters) between the two mini-games they play. Regions may require more. 

Equipment Check - Check both team's equipment before the first mini-game. Only need to check the third team's equipment before the second mini-game. No need for equipment check before the third mini-game.
