© 2001- 20

Please be aware, players in the JFFHL who simply come out and play their games, following the rules, respecting their competition and enjoying the game, will never have to concern themselves with the penalties or fines noted below.

Our rules are designed to promote fair play, respect and consideration of others.
We sincerely hope that we NEVER have to fine or suspend any player,
but we must have tough policies in place to deter those who try to destroy
our mission to have a fun league.

PLAYING RULES – Section A

RULE 2 A
For all minor penalties, play is stopped as in a normal game situation (i.e. immediately or delayed), when stopped the team that would normally go on the power play is awarded a penalty shot.

JUNIOR DIVISIONS - All players on the ice, drop on the blue line, behind the shot taker on both knees, the ref' blows his whistle and the player taking the penalty shot begins skating, as soon as he/she crosses the defensive blue line, all players on the ice rejoin the play. If the player scores, play is stopped and a face off results, if the goalie makes the save, play continues as if the player had been on a breakaway.

SENIOR DIVISIONS - All players on the ice, stand inside the opposite blue line, the ref blows his whistle and the player taking the penalty shot begins skating, as soon as he/she crosses the defensive blue line, all players on the ice rejoin the play. If the player scores, play is stopped and a face off results, if the goalie makes the save, play continues as if the player had been on a breakaway.

DETERMINING WHO TAKES A PENALTY SHOT -
when penalty shots are called, they should always be taken by the player who was fouled, it's up to the players to decide this and do it quickly (in the Munchies division, the Bench Boss should tell the player who is to take the shot). When this isn't clear, let the player with the least points on the team have the shot, keep it fun!
