NCVF Rules committee

The primary duty of the Rules Committee is to provide guidance and interpretations of the playing rules which will be used in the upcoming season.   Additionally, the committee provides recommendations to the NCVF Directors for changes, modifications, and alterations to the playing rules for their consideration and approval.

All rule interpretations are geared toward the National Championships, such as:

  1. Playing with 5 players and a "ghost player";
  2. Uniform requirements;
  3. Others as applicable.

It is our hope that all NCVF competitions across the country will use the same rules and reduce the number of issues arising at the National Championship Tournament.
