2 Foreword The International Street and Ball Hockey Federation is pleased to assist IIHF Member Nations in the development of hockey through the introduction of the Learn To Play Street Hockey Program and this document Elite Street Hockey Rules which reviews the major differences between ice hockey and street hockey rules in their competitive or elite formats. It provides hockey organizers the ability to offer advanced players the opportunity to learn international street hockey rules for use in competitive leagues and international play. Similar to the ISBHF LTP Program, it is also aimed at the education of club administrators, program instructors, referees, coaches, and leaders who will be instrumental in the successful utilization of the program in their communities. A DVD is also provided, with video of game play at various levels to assist organizers to better understand street hockey, and to emphasize street hockey s important similarities to ice hockey. The International Street and Ball Hockey Federation is committed to the development of hockey at the grass roots level, and offers its assistance to the IIHF and its members, in a spirit of cooperation as a part of the hockey family of sports.
3 Introduction The main objective of the ISBHF Elite Street Hockey Rules Manual is to give advanced boys, girls, and adults, a taste of the street hockey game at the competitive and elite level. This manual will review the few major differences between ice hockey and street hockey rules. The majority of international street hockey rules are based on those of international ice hockey, utilizing all the same floor markings, arena sizes, penalties, face-off procedures, play stoppages, etc. The major differences are as follows: 1. All levels of street hockey are played in a non-contact format. Although some light contact occurs when two players are side by side in play for the ball, no body checking is permitted. 2. High-sticking the ball is an immediate stoppage in play, and in many programs a minor penalty is assessed. The intent of this rule is to teach players to keep their sticks down below the waist at all times. 3. Offsides are based on a floating blue-line system which expands the offensive zone to the centre-line once an opponent s blue-line is gained. This concept is discussed in greater detail within. A summary of the playing rules are also enclosed, however, they do not contain the entirety of the rules, which can be followed in a regulation IIHF Rule Book. As well, ISBHF Competition information is included for nations interested in competing in street hockey international events. For more information regarding the ISBHF and for technical assistance, you may visit or contact the following: General Secretary Christoph Curchod Vice-President (SUI) Vit Rezac Vice President (CZE)
4 Offsides and the Floating Blue-Line System OFFSIDES Just as in international ice hockey, there is no two-line offside, and players are free to pass the ball from their own end all the way to the opponent s blue-line. Where international street hockey differences is in the clearing of the zone, in order to force an opposing team out of the defending team s zone, once the blue-line is gained by the opponent, the defending team must send the ball passed the centre-line to reach neutral territory. FLOATING BLUE-LINE SYSTEM Expansion of the offensive zone occurs once a team crosses the opponent's blue-line with the ball. The attacking team will then have half of the entire playing surface within which to control the ball, from behind the opponent's goal to the centre-line of the rink. If the defending team sends the ball passed center, the zone is reset to the blue-line and their opponent must regain it as explained above. When Team A legally crosses the opponent s blue-line with possession of the ball, the Attacking Zone expands all the way to the centreline. When Team B clears the ball passed the centre-line, the blue-line is reset to its original position.
