We appreciate you taking the time to read the rules and we look forward to a weekend filled with
everyone playing by them!
1. The winner of a captain’s coin toss will determine which goal to defend. Teams will switch
goals after first half.
2. All players must wear helmets and hockey skates. Protective equipment is optional but highly
recommended.
3. No goalies, goalie equipment or sticks permitted.
4. All teams must have light and dark jerseys or uniforms.
5. All rinks will start and stop on the master horn.
6. Penalties will be called for rule infractions. Penalties called by rink officials are final. A minor
penalty will result in possession of the puck awarded to the opposing team. Rink Officials will
have the discretion to also award a goal to the opposing team when a minor penalty is flagrant
and/or a team is consistently playing in a reckless manner.
7. Any major penalty, which includes any action that could possibly injure another player, will
result in that player being ejected from the tournament. The team that received the ejection will
play the remainder of the tournament short-handed (3 vs. 4). Rink official will determine major
penalties.
8. Abuse of rink officials will be considered a major penalty. This includes yelling, swearing, or
arguing about calls.
9. No checking is allowed. Such action will result in a minor penalty unless deemed serious
enough to be a major (rink officials discretion).
10. No slapshots allowed. Such action will result in a minor penalty.
11. Players cannot fall or lay on the ice in an effort to protect the goal area. Such action will result
in a minor penalty.
12. Goaltending is not allowed. A player may not patrol, “camp out” or remain stationary in the
crease area and act as a goaltender. A defender may deflect the puck in the crease area, but the
defender must do so while continuing to move through the crease area. The crease area is
defined as an imaginary box extending out four feet from the outside corners of the goal.
13. Contacting the puck with a stick above the waist will result in a loss of possession.
14. Saucer passes (i.e. pucks that are lifted low, below the knee) are acceptable.

defender must give his opponent 2-stick lengths of space.
16. There are no off-sides or icing calls.

18. Rink Officials will call out the score after each goal. This includes goals scored by players or

of their own net where their progress is impeded by the pick or interference of an offensive
player.
26. All players must visibly display their credentials during the game. Players without
credentials are not allowed to play.
27. Games start and stop on the master horn, for every minute a team is late they will be

score of 15-0
