We are looking forward to our summer season beginning this week. Here are some things to know before you arrive:
- Jerseys will be distributed when you arrive on Thursday
- Locker rooms are open at full capacity! Please look at the board when you enter for your team's assignment. We have 4 teams per hour, you will be permitted to change in your locker room but you MUST bring your bag out to the bleachers with you so that the next hour can then use the locker rooms after you
- Girls will use the ref room to change
- Masks are no longer required for players or spectators - it is at the discretion of your family
- In the event that teams are unbalanced or for other unforeseen circumstances, the committee reserves the right to redistribute players as needed
- 2 minute warm up
- (2) 24 minute halves, running time
- 2 minute buzzer shifts - this is subject to change if necessary
- Both teams will share a single bench for their game and have 1 door each. Please stay on your own team's side of the bench.
- Penalties will result in 1 missed shift, repeated offenses will result in loss of ice time. The player committing the penalty can be replaced by the next player on the bench. If a play commits 2 major penalties, he/she will be ejected from the game and may be subject to further action by the BOD
- Faceoffs will only occur at the start of each half or if the puck leaves the playing area
- After each goal, no faceoff will be taken. All three players from the scoring team must tag up at their defensive face off dots before re-engaging in the play.
- As always, sportsmanship is a priority and respectful behavior from both players and spectators is a must - any inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and may result in an ejection from the game and will be subject to further review
- Playoffs will take place during the last 2 weeks of the summer season
Please remember that our referees are volunteering their time for us and as an organization, this is the first time we are sponsoring this program. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Craig Barnard, Dan Quill or Lauren Allen so that we can resolve any issues that may arise. Let's have an awesome summer of hockey and good luck to all of our players!

Please read the South Shore Conference rule below. The league is very serious about the behavior of spectators on rink property.
The member towns and coach of each team are responsible for the behavior of the spectators from their town. If the spectators get unruly or abusive during the game, it is up to the direction of the referee to stop the game and determine who is at fault. If it can be determined whom or what town is at fault, they shall forfeit the game. If it cannot be determined who is at fault or it is unsafe to continue the game, it will be stopped and the Disciplinary Committee will make a decision.
1. The South Shore Conference will establish a discipline committee to investigate and conduct a hearing if appropriate, concerning any major incident involving spectator or parent. An officer of the SSC will chair the Discipline Committee. The discipline committee will be comprised of three members of the Executive Board and two Program Directors on a rotating monthly basis.
2. A major incident shall be defined as, but not limited to, the use of obscene or vulgar language, verbal: physical abuse, taunting of players, coaches, officials and throwing of objects in the viewing area, team benches, or ice surface, etc.
3. When a major incident on the ice rink property used by the SSC involving a parent or spectator is brought to the attention of the SSC Executive Board by rink officials, ice officials(referee or timekeepers), incident reports or other programs, the affected programs will be notified by the SSC President or designee.
4. The program(s) will have 48 hours to respond with recommendation for discipline to the chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee. The program will identify everyone involved. If the program’s action is deemed acceptable, no further action shall be taken. If the chairperson of the Discipline Committee deems the program’s recommendation unacceptable and/or inadequate, the individuals involved will immediately be suspended from all SSC activities until the incident is resolved. The Discipline Committee shall convene to investigate the incident and to hold a hearing within one week. All parties involved in the major incident shall attend the discipline hearing.
5. Annually prior to the start of the hockey season, each program will be responsible for sending written or electronic notice to the membership advising them of RULE #19, a copy of the letter will be submitted to the South Shore Conference President no later that the September directors meeting.
