Frozen Fives 5v5 Rules

  • Each game is 25 minutes running time. The referee will access a quick timeout halfway through the game for teams to regroup and switch sides.
     
  • Each half begins with a faceoff. Any player not taking the faceoff must line up behind GLE on either end of the field. Once the whistle is blown, players can move freely.
     
  • Teams must have 4 field players and 1 goalie on at all times. There are no off-sides.
     
  • All player substitutions are on the fly through the designated box area
     
  • There are NO timeouts
     
  • All players must use short-sticks. No long-poles are allowed.
     
  • Goalies are allowed to wear box equipment, but it is not required.  
     
  • All penalties will be called. In case of a penalty, a 3 on 2 fast break from midfield will be awarded to the offended team.
    • In a flag down situation, if the offended team scores, penalty is nullified (no fast break).
    • Players that commit a personal foul bust be subbed out.
       
  • A game ending tied will be decided by a 2v2 Braveheart. Two players from each team are selected and will begin with a faceoff. No substitutions are allowed.  
     
  • After a goal is scored the ball is awarded to the scored upon goalie who puts the ball in play from his crease area. A referee must whistle to indicate play has recommenced. Referees will record each goal before resuming play.
     
  • The riding team may NOT drop below the opposing teams GLE. A goalie is permitted a free pass to teammate behind the goal if he prefers.
     
  • There is no “out-of-bounds”. All sides of the field are either netting or wall. If a ball hits either the wall or netting it is still in play and can be picked up by any player; no whistle will be blown. If the ball hits the wall or netting and is “stuck”, the referee will blow the whistle and award the ball to the closest player.
     
  • There is no pushing or shoving allowed along the walls/nets. Referees will be monitoring this closely and assess warnings and/or penalties as needed.
     
  • Body checking and/or one-handed checks are NOT permitted.  
     
  • Moving picks are NOT permitted.
     
  • All sticks must meet High School regulations. If referees feel a stick may be illegal, the player will be asked to go do the sideline until the stick can be checked by the referee during a dead ball.
     
  • NO FIGHTING! ANY PLAYERS OR COACHES INVOLVED IN A FIGHT WILL BE EXPELLED FROM THE TOURNAMENT. NO second chances. There is ZERO tolerance for fighting.
     
  • Flagrant fouls: 1st offense – expulsion from game; 2nd offense (occurring anytime during tournament after first offense) – expulsion from tournament. The certified referee will be the sole determinant as to where a foul is flagrant or not.

 

TIEBREAKER:

  • Head-to-head
  • Goals Against
  • If Goals Against are equal, or there was no Head-to-head matchup, we will play a 5 minute tiebreaker game to determine the division winner.
