SOBC exceptions to the SOC rules
Please note that these rule exceptions only apply to Local, Regional and where noted, Provincial Games. Athletes and Coaches must be aware that all competitions outside the above would be governed by SOC rules and the rules of that Sport's Governing Body.
- Scorekeepers must have coaches sign the score sheets at the end of each game in a tournament. The director of tournament play will oversee all umpires, timekeepers and scorekeepers at the competition. This will ensure that both teams agree upon scores before the score is made final. Once the score sheet is signed a protest CANNOT proceed.
