The rules of the tournament are outlined below and will be discussed thoroughly at the start of the tournament:

1. Start of game

- Each team starts with 4 players touching the wall on their respective sides
- 4 balls are lined up in the middle of the court
- The game begins when the official blows a whistle, then players may rush to the middle to get as many balls as they can
- Each ball must be brought behind the attack line on either side before it is considered "live" and can be thrown at an opponent. 

2. Outs

- Players shall be deemed "out" when a live ball hits any part of the player's body, clothing, or uniform
- If a player is hit by a live ball rebounding off another player or ball lying on the court
- A defending player catches a live ball they have thrown

- When a teammates catches an opponents throw, players shall return from the queue in the order they were put "out" (i.e. first "out," first "in")

3. Blocks

- Players can defend themselves by blocking the ball in flight with another ball but must retain control over the ball they are blocking with
- A player dropping or losing possession of the blocking ball is deemed "out"
- Any blocked ball rebounding off another ball is considered live
- Any player hit by the rebounding ball is deemed "out"

4. Headshots:

- A headshot occurs when a player is hit directly in the head while standing by a high thrown ball
- Any thrower committing a headshot will be deemed "out"

*A thrown ball is live until it hits a wall, the floor, or the ceiling. If two players get hit by the same ball before it touches a play surface, both players are out. Also if one player is hit by a ball, but a teammate catches the ball before it hits a play surface, that player is in and only the thrower is out.

The tournament is designed to be self-officiated, but disputes may be settled by Department of Recreation and Parks staff (whose decisions are final!)

* Adjustments and discounts will be applied during checkout if applicable. *
