Every team is guaranteed 3 games. A match lasts 14 minutes (split into two halves, each of not more than 7 minutes) plus time lost. Half time will be 1 minute. Each division will play 2 round robin matches, then be reseeded for playoffs. 

There is no set roster limit, but most teams have 15 players on the squad. Each team has no more than seven players in the playing area during play. Substitution rules will follow the USA rugby guidelines of 5 substitutions. However if teams want to switch to rolling subs, they can speak to the opposing team to confirm whether or not they would like to play their match with rolling subs.
