Rules

THE GAME
A game consists of frames. Each team rotates throwing their bags until all bags are thrown to the other side, at which point, the frame is complete. Each frame consists of calculating the difference of all the bags on the boards and in the hole at the end of the frame per team. The net points are kept track of from each frame. Example: Team A scores 8 points in frame 1 and Team B scores 2 points in frame 1. This would mean that Team A would receive 6 points for that frame and would also be the team to throw first in the next frame. The object is to be the first team to reach 21 points by either throwing the bag onto the board (1 point) or in the hole (3 points). Board will be placed approximately 27 feet (front to front) from each other. This distance is placed out by the league manager.
BEGINNING OF THE GAME
Begin the game with a coin flip or play rock, paper, scissors between the two captains. The winner determines either which side of the board to throw from or first throw. Players may not cross the foul line, which is located at the front of the board. All players must throw from behind this line.
TEAM SIZE
There are no gender requirement rules in cornhole, teams of two (2) will compete throughout the tournament.
ROUND ROBIN PLAY
All teams will get a minimum of 4 round robin games. Each game will be one match played to 21.  Games are played "straight up" to 21 points; a team does not need to win by 2 or more points.  A team does not need to score exactly 21 points and can go over 21.
PLAYOFFS
After the completion of the round robin games, SPORTSKIND will seed all teams for a single elimination tournament. Teams will be seeded first by overall record followed by points scored.  If there is still a tie then points scored differential will determine seeding. Each match in the single elimination tournament will also be one game to 21 points.
WAIVERS
In order to participate in the tournament, each participant must register online and sign the team waiver. Players must sign the waiver in order to be eligible for playoffs.
