Basic Information and Guidelines re Ice Hockey Sessions
We are running these sessions to encourage skaters to try something new on the ice and have fun. The rink is not a full size hockey rink and is not fitted out for competitive play. Play will be non-contact and care will be taken at all times to prevent the puck from leaving the ice area. Hockey sticks cannot be raised above waist height. Anyone not adhering to our safety rules will be disqualified from playing.
Player fee Each player will pay their £6 fee in full prior to going on the ice. Please arrive early enough so that this can be completed well before play starts and admin doesn't hold up play.
Registration Each player will have a completed and signed registration form handed in prior to play otherwise they will not be allowed on the ice.
Teams Teams consist of 5 players each side not including the goalies.
Officiating and Referee There will be a Referee on the ice at all times timekeeping and keeping the score.
Game format We will have 2 x 20 minute play periods. Depending on the amount of players and no. of teams we may rotate teams with the winning team staying on a maximum of 2 games. Teams will have a 5 minute warm up period.
Kit Players will not be able to take part unless they have the basic mandatory kit. We would ask players to provide their own as we only have a limited amount of kit in S/M/L.
Mandatory Basic Safety Kit HELMET WITH CAGE. The most important piece of safety kit for hockey players. Cycle helmets are not allowed as they are designed for front impact and give little protection at the back of the head. Players wearing glasses must have a visor or cage. If you do not have your own cage you must wear a gum shield (dentist bills can be very expensive!). KNEE, SHIN, ELBOW PADS AND GLOVES must be worn. For shin pads football guards will suffice). Extra hip padding if you have it. Preferably padded hockey gloves.
Hockey Sticks If you do not have your own stick and loan one of ours it is your responsibility to return it in good condition and undamaged otherwise a broken stick will incur a charge of £25 to the user.
Clothing If you haven't got hockey pants, long trousers that won't get caught in the skates, e.g. elasticized leg bottoms. Hockey shirt or a good wicking performance top. We will be providing teams with different team colour bibs to wear over your tops.
