Two Forwards use standard sticks and cannot step over the centre line into defensive zone. Substitute players and equipment must be located in the designated team bench area during play of the game. Teams must have a minimum of five (5) players ready to take the floor at game time. Teams not ready to play five (5) minutes after the Referee has indicated game start time will serve a two (2) minute delay of game penalty. Position to be penalized is at the coaches discretion.

The game starts with the two (2) Centres facing off at the center circle. Forwards and Guards will be in their respective zones. Play always starts at the center circle following a goal. Player substitution is allowed any time during the game but a Forward and a Guard already in play cannot change with each other. This may only take place at a stoppage of play. Sticks are not to be carried onto the floor when substitutions take place during play; rather they are handed off from player to player. Each team shall be allowed one (1) 30 second time out per game. The Coach, Assistant Coach or designated Team Captain may call the time out, during a regular stoppage of play. The time out does not start until the Referee announces it and the clock is stopped. During the time out, no parents or Coaches are allowed on the floor except with the Referees consent.

General Play: When puck goes out of bounds, a face-off takes place at the nearest face-off spot from where the puck was shot from. When two (2) players are pursuing a loose puck, stick checking of the opponents stick is allowed, providing stick checking does not warrant penalty, such as high sticking or slashing.

Deliberate hip checking is not allowed and will be penalized under roughing. Player cannot hold puck against the wall or move puck along the wall, thereby blocking opponent. The player who first reaches the puck at the wall should immediately play or pass the puck. A player, other than the Goal Keeper, may not direct the puck with their hand to another team member. The Referee will call a stoppage in play. If, in the opinion of the Referee, the hand pass was intentional, an illegal hand pass penalty will be called. 10
