New Rules effective from 1 January 2019:

The Internation Hockey Federation (FIH) have updated the Rules of Hockey, an umpire briefing of the updated rules can be found here Hockey NZ New Rules - effective 1st January 2019 

 

Wellington Hockey (WHA) are implenting some of the rules and we thought we would do a summary to help everyone - thanks to our umpire extraordinaire Kerry Scannell who has also kindly offered to take the teams through these new rules if needed. In a nutshell, here are the new rules being applied in 2019 by WHA: 

* All Premier grade games (P1 to P3) are moving to quarters – four x 17 minute quarters. There will be a 2 minute break between 1st and 2nd quarters, then a 5 minute break at half time when the teams also swap sides, then a 2 minute break between 3rd and 4th quarters. Reserve grade games remain at 2 x 35 minute halves.

* Players acting as substitute goalies no longer have goal-keeping privileges. Effectively they become an 11th field player.

* For attacking free hits within 5 metres of the circle:

  • ALL players must be at least 5 metres from the ball
  • UNLESS the attacking team takes the free hit immediately, then defenders within the circle can shadow the player if they are already less than 5 metres away (same as the 2018 rule).

* If an attacker breaks during a PC the ball injector is sent back to half way – not the offending player.

* For a PC at the end of a period, the rule that if the ball goes outside the circle twice the PC is over no longer applies.

* It is now ok to wear a face mask if the player is immediately taking a defender’s free hit awarded during a PC IF they are passing to another player.

* Defending team can now take a free hit in the circle anywhere or up to 15 metres from the back line in line with where the ball went out.
