All WIA rules apply, but in addition, see below guidelines.
Highest seed picks side or kick off (Not a coin flip).
Rules for tie breaker penalty kicks (not during the run of the game)
Goalies can take penalty kicks.
Goalies must have their heels on the goal line until the kicker makes contact with the ball.
Ball must be placed at the top of the penalty box (large box).
The player taking the kick may only touch the ball once.
The goalie can touch the ball an unlimited number of times, until the ball goes out of bounces, the goalie fully gets control of the ball or the ball COMPLETELY crosses the goal line.
If the goalie has possession of the ball and steps into the mouth of the goal, but the ball does not completely cross the goal line, IT IS NOT A GOAL.
Call ups ARE excluded from penalty kicks.
If you are still tied after all eligible players have taken penalty kicks, then you start both teams back over with the first players who took a penalty kick and keep the original order.
Kicks are taken alternately by each team.
Players selected to take penalty kicks do not have to be on the field of play at the end of the overtime period. Each kick is taken by a different player and all eligible players must take a kick before any player can take a second kick.
Players (except the two goalies and the player taking the kick) must be in the center circle.
If, at the end of the match and before kicks start to be taken from the penalty mark, one team has a greater number of players than their opponents, they must reduce their numbers to equate with that of their opponents and the coach must inform the referee of the name and number of each player excluded.
Before the start of kicks from the penalty mark, the referee must ensure that an equal number of players from each team remains within the center circle and they shall take the kicks.
You can switch goal keepers between any PK kick.
Example 1 - regular PKs with no SUDDEN DEATH PKs
Team A scores 3 out of 5 penalty kicks Team B scores 1 out of 5 penalty kicks
Team A wins.
Example 2 - regular PKs followed by SUDDEN DEATH PKs
Team A scores 1 out of 5 penalty kicks Team B scores 1 out of 5 penalty kicks
Team A and B pick 5 new penalty kick takers
Player A6 scores and player B6 scores - still tied Player A7 misses and player B7 misses - still tied
Player A8 misses and player B8 scores - Game over - Team B wins
