BALL HOCKEY‎ > ‎Recreational‎ > ‎


NOTE: The rules attached are the ones traditionally used by our ball hockey league before we split into two divisions, although some version of them will be used for the rec season. More revised rules may be announced as we come closer to the season. Players are asked to review these rules, once available, to ensure they are in sync with the league organizers, referees and teammates.

Download the complete document at the bottom of the page.

The spirit of the rules is, above all, to have fun and be safe, to treat all players & officials with respect, & to keep competition secondary to having a good time. Thus, gross unsportsmanlike conduct, such as the utterance of racial, religious or sexist slurs, the instigation of a fight, or conducting an illegal activity while in a league facility, may result in suspension or expulsion from the league with no refund, at the discretion of league executives & the Halifax PLAYS Board.

We encourage players to contact with suggestions for how rules can be amended and improved. If we get many suggestions, particularly on the same sort of matters, league executives may change a role or have players/ captains vote on possible changes. We highly value the input of players, so please be honest and open with your suggestions!

During the season, please remember to treat all officials with respect, especially considering the time they take out of their day to help the league.
