|Basic Play||The hockey puck or ball must not be caught in your hand except by the goalie. The hockey puck or ball may be stopped and dropped by players, but can not be advanced.|
|Regulation Play||A team consists of two teams. Each team has 6 players and will play for three 10 minute periods.|
|Goals||A goal is scored when a player hits, sweeps or pushes the puck or ball into the net with his stick directly, or deflects it off one of his teammates or a defensive player into the goal. |
A player may advance the puck or ball with his feet but he cannot kick it directly into the net to score.
If a player kicks the puck or ball and it deflects off a defenseman into the goal, the goal will be allowed.
If a defenseman shoots or kicks the puck or ball into their own net, the opposing team shall be awarded a goal.
The puck or ball may not be thrown into the net to score.
|Positions|| 1 goalie|
|Goalie||The goaltender is the sole player permitted to catch the puck or ball and can do so only when he is in the crease. |
When he or she catches or stops the puck or ball, they must be given room to either throw or pass it to one of their teammates.
The goalie should be instructed to remain standing to avoid being hit in the face by the puck, ball, or hockey stick.
|Loss of possession||1. Catching or carrying the ball or puck in the hand, except by the goalie. |
2. Throwing the ball or puck, except by the goalie.

4. Out of bounds - the last team to touch the ball or puck before it leaves the playing area loses the possession.

Play is stopped and one player is chosen to take a single shot.
The goalie is the only defender as the shot is taken not less than twenty feet from the goal.
No rebounds are allowed.
If a goal is scored, missed or saved the team that was penalized begins play at their goal line.
An intentional infraction of the rules is a major penalty.
Either the offending player leaves the game for four minutes or two penalty shots to make one goal are awarded.
Major penalties are rarely called. The instructor must judge whether the infraction was intentional.
|Calling Penalties||Penalties should be called for any action not directed at the puck or ball, unnecessary roughness or illegal use of the hockey stick.|
