****Equal Playing Time (EPT) is defined as each player has to sit out at least one full period and play one third of the full game (3 periods).  Any more playing time is earned.  Earned play means that a player has shown up regularly and participated in practices.  If you miss a practice EPT no longer applies.  If a player shows up late to a game, equal playing time for that player is defined below:

Beginning of period 1, 2, 3, or 4 = EPT 2 periods

Beginning of period  5, 6, or 7 = EPT 1 period

Beginning of period 8 = EPT 0 period

Certain situations may occur where playing time needs to be adjusted. I.e. Injury, players on vacation, or players not showing up.
