IGSSA Rules

Any/all general rules enclosed in the Guidelines are to apply.

  1. 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.
  2. No penalty strokes in Year 7/8 hockey.
  3. Hold time for serious injuries to allow correct duty of care.
  4. 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).
  5. Substitution is not permitted at penalty corners except for injury, after the award or during the taking of a penalty corner.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. The centre pass can be hit/pushed (not flicked) to anywhere on the field (ie. forwards, backwards, sideways).
  9. 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.
  10. 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
      OR
    • a goalkeeper with goalkeeping privileges wearing only protective headgear and a different colour shirt
