*Violence and unsportmanlike behavior can and will get you removed from the event. If this is to occur, your squad will be forced to play handicapped.
*No one is allowed to interfere with game play including other members of your squad. We encourage everyone to cheer on their squads but please do so in a sportsmanlike manner. You are responsible for anyone not on your squad watching your matches as well. Their actions will effect your squad.
*You may not cross the plane of the table while the other team is shooting. If it is your shot, you may not cross the half-way mark of the table. Breaking either rule will enforce an automatic free penalty shot by the other team - penalty shots cannot be used towards roll-backs.
*Captains are required to keep their squads under control and obeying all rules setforth by ECBP.
