All umpires, (two per game), are to be provided by home school.
Any/all general rules enclosed in the Guidelines are to apply.
- Rolling substitutions (up to 15 players) will apply. Umpires are to be informed of each change. In Year 7/8 you can have as many substitutes as you like.
- No penalty strokes in Year 7/8 hockey.
- Hold time for serious injuries to allow correct duty of care.
- If the defending team unintentionally touches the ball last, from anywhere on the pitch, before it goes over their backline a long corner is awarded (5 yards up the sideline- there should be a mark on the sideline to indicate this spot).
- Substitution is not permitted at penalty corners except for injury, after the award or during the taking of a penalty corner.
- A penalty corner awarded at half time or full time must be played out. Play is ceased when either a goal is scored, the ball passes over the sideline or backline, the defending team is awarded a free, or the ball is further than 5 yards out of the circle. If the attacking team is awarded a penalty corner or penalty stroke play only stops after one of the four scenarios above occurs.
- For free hits within 5 yards of the circle all players of both teams, other than the taker, are to be 5 yards from the ball. In all other instances at free hits the attacker may have a member of their team within 5 yards and the ball must go 1 yard. A free hit cannot be made directly into the circle. Venues shoulc have a 5 yard dotted line marked outside the circle.
- The centre pass can be hit/pushed (not flicked) to anywhere on the field
(ie. forwards, backwards, sideways).
- When a defender (including the goalie) intentionally plays the ball over the backline from anywhere on the pitch, and no goal is scored, a penalty corner is awarded.
- When the ball is raised dangerously at another player, whether intentional or not, a free hit/push is awarded at the discretion of the umpire. The free hit is taken where the ball was deemed dangerous.
- Each team may play with:
- a goalkeeper with goalkeeping privileges wearing full protective equipment comprised of at least headgear, leg guards and kickers and a different colour shirt
- a goalkeeper with goalkeeping privileges wearing only protective headgear and a different colour shirt
