A small prize will be awarded to each player in the winning colour house team.
Rules and Requirements for the Ball Hockey Tournament:
All players will be required to wear equipment to play. The required equipment is as follows, Helmet with full face cage, shin pads, elbow pads, hockey gloves and jock as a minimum. You are welcome to wear additional equipment if you feel comfortable. Athletic attire and athletic footwear (non-marking soles) should be worn. Bring your own hockey stick.
We will not be using goalies, so if you are a goalie this is your chance to show your skills outside of the net. We will be using boards on the nets with target holes in them.
Please have all players at the arena at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of their division.
Slap shots are not permitted and sticks are not to be raised above waist level.
Body contact and body checking is not permitted.
All other hockey rules will apply.
There will be a face off to start each game but after that the play will continue until the end. When a goal is scored the team that scored will give the other team half the playing area before defending or attacking.
This is a safe and fun event and unsportsmanlike and dangerous behaviour will not be tolerated.
Players will be penalized for all regular penalties.
The volunteer officials will make the calls for goals, penalties and play stoppages and they will be respected.
We will be playing 4 on 4 with regular changes.
Games will be 15 minutes in length. Each colour within their division (eg. Atom) will play three 15 minute games.
Points will be awarded based on the end result - Win = 2 points, Tie = 1 point, Loss = 0 points.
The Skills competition will take place throughout the day, as mentioned before, and points will be awarded to each colour house based on top results from each division IP through to Bantam.
Any unanswered questions can be brought to the attention of Trevor MacLean, John Johnstone, Jocelyn Rosebrugh or Ryan Delaney on the day of the event.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing everyone on April 16!
