All RVSOA serviced VHSL games will have an 8 goal mercy rule. End the game when:
- JV: 8 goal lead with 15 minutes (or less) left in game
- V: 8 goal lead with 20 minutes (or less) left in game.
This applies to all regular season games. It also applies to districts and regional playoff games. It does not apply to state playoff games!
We have had a problem with the REC U-14 time periods!! Please READ the following carefully: Roanoke County and Roanoke City games will play 25 minute halves, HS sub rule. Salem City and Botetourt County are playing 12 minute quarters with subs at the end of each quarter. There is no change in NURSA house league games.
All Varsity: 40 minute halves plus two 5 minutes OTs if needed
JVs: 30 minute halves with NO OTs
Middle Schools: 25 minute halves plus a 10 minute extra period (Roanoke County, Botetourt), or 30 minutes halves (Roanoke City)
Private Schools Sub Varsity: 30 Minute halves.
