2013 RVYFL Playoff Brackets

Click here to view the FINAL 2013 RVYFL Playoff Brackets.  
Make sure you click on Team on the right hand side and then the Level in the drop down box in the top middle of the screen to get the info you are interested in.

Please arrive early in case the games run fast.  Times are estimates.  Games begin immediately following the previous game. This does not apply to the first game of the day. Please keep checking for time/field changes.   
1. VISITING TEAM for every game supplies a chain crew. Visiting team is the lower seed. (i.e. #1 vs #8, #8 is the lower seed)

2. HOME TEAM picks which side of the field they wish to occupy. The home team is the higher seed. (i.e. #1 vs #8, #1 is the higher seed) Funny that has to be stated, but I've seen coaches fight over it.

3. Weigh-Ins are 1 hour prior to SCHEDULED online time. Early weigh-ins can occur during any scheduled weigh-in between at least 2 different organization ADs or at least 2 different organization coaches. Each AD/coach present must sign off the weigh in on the rosters located at the scale.  It is the responsibility for playoff hosts to have the rosters at the scale. It is the responsibility of the coaches to review their opponents weighs ins roster before their game. 

4. Playoffs and Super Bowl - Regular kick-off rules will apply to all (4) level teams during the entire game, regardless of score.  The "No Kickoff Rule" does not apply in the playoffs at any of the 4 levels.

5. The *starting backfield* of the leading team must be substituted and may not handle the ball on offense until the score is below twenty (20) points for the SLW and LW levels; and twenty-four (24) points for the JV and V levels. If positions of players are not available as substitutes, positions of players must be changed. This rule is in effect for all playoffs and Super Bowl.

6. The 5 play rule applies during the weekend of the Oct 12-13th only.  The 5 play rule will not apply to remaining playoff games and the Super Bowl.
7. During the weekend of Oct 12-13, if a team can not field a 5th quarter team, the opposing team is not bound by the 5 play rule. Additionally, the opposing team has the option to play an intra-squad game before the regulation game only. The team that can not field a 5th quarter team must still fulfill the 5 play rule in the regulation game.
