Rules, Regulations and Procedures

2017 Summer

3 on 3 / 4 on 4

 Pond Hockey

Rules

 

 

THIS IS A ZERO TOLERANCE LEAGUE!!!!

 

NO FORFEIT RULE

In the past, we have had some teams not show up to their games and just take a forfeit for certain reasons. This isn't fair for the other teams especially those that travel a distance to play in this league.

The No forfeit rule is as followed….. Any team that forfeits a game will be subject to a $100 fine or you can choose to not be eligible for play-offs which may be subjected to removal from the league.  To avoid the fine, your team must contact the other team directly and both must agree with the cancellation.  There is no rescheduling games unless the other team wants to reschedule. The team that originally cancelled is responsible for the referee and rescheduling dues.

 

ROSTER TEMPLATES

Rosters must be submitted otherwise your team will not be allowed to play their game until do so. The template must be filled out completely. No excuses.

 

WAIVER LINK

Everyone must sign a waiver. Again everyone on your roster must have the waiver signed. Your roster will be invalid if this isn't done and the players that did not electronically sign the waiver will not be allowed to play. The link will be sent to every parent after I receive the roster template.

 

RULES

Please have all your players look over the rules. This is located on my website.  This is a zero tolerance league and we will be watching closely on any sort of unruly play. Please keep in mind that there is body contact (angling) but NO BODY CHECKING. There is a difference and the refs will be able to make the distinction between the two. If by any chance the game starts getting chippy, the refs are told to stop the game, warn both coaches. If this doesn't solve the issue, the officials can end the game. Also, control your parents. Refs also can ask parents to leave the rink.

 

ZAMBONI

Please be ready to jump on the ice once the Zamboni is finished, off the ice, and doors closed. The referee will buzz the clock twice and will wait one minute before they start the clock for warm ups. No one is allowed on the ice when the Zamboni is on the ice.

 

SCORESHEETS AND ROSTER STICKERS

The scoresheet cannot leave the front desk. Referees will bring scoresheet to the penalty box.

 

Score sheets must be filled out before each game.  Please cross-off all players that are absent for that game. Refs will be taking a head count before each game. I recommend you make up stickers to post on the score sheets. It’s a lot easier than filling them out every game. Again, score sheets will be at the front desk before every game and it does not leave the front desk.

 

SCOREKEEPERS 

Home team must submit a scorekeeper for that game. The clock will be set up to buzz every minute. The only time you stop time is as followed:

1.     Injury

2.     Penalties

3.     When the referees signals to do so

 

HOME TEAM SCOREKEEPER RULES

HOME TEAM and any team playing the individual sign up teams must provide a scorekeeper

 

RULES AND REGULATIONS

·      Mites – No warm-up -  2 mini games – 20 minute each game

2. No off sides, no icings, no whistles to stop play. When a goal is scored, the team that gets scored on pulls the puck out and head-mans the puck as quick as possible. The team that scored, all players must leave the zone simultaneously before re-entering.

7. Player must be a stick length away to change with other players. 1 player for 1 player even up exchange. Too many players on the ice infraction will be called if you do not follow this.


8. On penalty shots, both teams must be at their respective blue line and must be behind it.  After the shot has been taken, both teams can attack the puck.  The player that takes the penalty shot, score or no score, play will resume with the goalie controlling the puck and that player that took the penalty shot must leave the zone and tag up before playing the puck again.  The goalie may play the puck to his team right away. Time will start when the shot is taken by the player that is taking the penalty shot.

 

9.After a team receives ten penalties for that game, every penalty after that will result in an automatic goal and the head coach will be suspended for the next game.  So coaches, please control your team.

 

10. Coaches are not allowed to clang the door latch on the door to signal players off the ice before the buzzard

 

11. If a team has only five players or less, the player/s  staying on the ice has to touch the boards at their bench with their hand and then be able to jump in the play

 

12. You cannot start a game unless a team has:

 4 or more players in 3 on 3 league / 5 or more players in 4 on 4 league

 

13. A team not clearing the offensive zone after a goal: the play will be blown dead and the ref will warn the offending team once.  After that it will be a delay of game penalty, and a penalty shot.

 

14. A team can “borrow” no more than two players from the opposing team so that they do not forfeit the game, as long as both coaches agree.

 

15. If a team without a goalie gets a penalty it will be an automatic goal.

A team without a goalie can place a player in the goal crease, but this player has no goalie privileges.
