Pond Hockey Rules
Pond Hockey is played without goalies and with standard pond hockey goals. No goalies in pads will be allowed on the ice. All goaltenders should skate out.
In all sessions, players 18 years old and younger must wear a helmet with full mask. Adults must wear a helmet, but are strongly encouraged to wear a full mask.
Pee Wee players and older do not need to wear full pads, but a protective cup and shin pads are strongly recommended since saucer passes are allowed (ie soft passes off the ice). Hard passes off the ice are not allowed, but deflections should be expected by all players. Protect your anatomy accordingly. However, Squirt players and younger must wear full equipment except during Try Hockey for Free sessions.
All sessions are coed and non-checking. Players may play up or down a level for any sessions. For instance, a Midget can play in a Bantam session, and a Pee Wee can also play in a Bantam session. Older players should recognize that it is good form to set up younger players for scoring opportunities. Please remember that all games are non-checking. If there are too many players for a session, older or younger players outside of the age group may not be able to play.
