Rules of Adult Hockey 5s

Normal rules of hockey apply, except for the following:

  • Safety is the highest priority
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Goals can be scored from halfway (if from a free hit, it must be auto-passed or passed to a team-mate first)
  • All shots at goal must be safe​​​​​​​
  • No Hitting is allowed
  • No overheads - jinking and skillful elimination skills are allowed
  • No Penalty Corners: for fouls inside the circle a free hit to the attackers is awarded outside the circle. The ball must travel 5m or be passed before being played into the circle area
  • Ball over the baseline:
    • by an attacker; is a free hit to the defending team (known as a '16') taken at the top of the circle, in line with where it went out
    • by a defender; is a free hit to the attacking team (known as a 'long corner') taken at the top of the circle in line with where it went out - the ball must travel 5m or be passed before being played into the circle area
  • Focus on fun!
  • No scores are kept

SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
