First of all, we have to talk about the referee of the hockey competition. About the court personnel, there are two referees, two goal umpires; two sideline referees, a timekeeper and a scorer. The two court referees will control the whole game together, each responsible for a half ground. If the play is offside, the two sideline judges will discrete sampling.
Second, we will talk about several foul plays on hockey sport. Hockey is a physical contact game. Athletes all have clubs in their hands, and the speed of the game is also very fast. If the competitive situation is not properly controlled, it will appear the uncivilized behaviors and even dangerous phenomenon. Therefore, the following provision actions are not allowed to appear, such as pushing people by hands, holding others, tripping with legs, elbowing others, hooking with stem top, using a trip, pushing bar resistance, raising above shoulders, holding rod race, throwing off the cue, beating with a hit, stabbing or clubbing with a bar. According to the situation, the referee will give people penalties, such as large fines, penalties for offenses or serious offenses.
Thirdly, it is important to say something about the reasonable discretion on how to master the collision problem in an ice hockey game. The athlete can use the shoulder, chest, buttock to make a collision on other ball players who is controlling the ball in the competition, but players will be regarded as foul if they slide more than three steps or jump up to dash. Of course, it is also not allowed to make a violent collision to the direction of the boundary wall from the back or three meters away from the boundary wall. According to various circumstances, different collision offenders will get different penalties, such as five minutes’ small penalty, ten minutes’ big penalty and even an additional illegality for ten minutes. In severe cases, players will be penalized as a serious offense or disqualified.
Fourthly, it is about the issue of how to kick off and fight for a ball in the game of ice hockey. The spot where to kick off a ball is a blue point in the centre of a red line’s middle part. The game will continue if both sides fight for the ball at this point after the start of each game or the hit of the goal. Besides, on the competition ground, there are eight points, which we call them off spot points. In a game, the so-called dead ball will appear if tapping team players attack the ball directly through their own half line to the of the other side, the referee will suspend the game. Then get the ball back to the off spot of the team’s offensive zone, two sides fight for the ball and start the competition again.
Fifth, we will talk about the problem of offside. Members of the attack team can not get the ball into the offensive zone if the ball does not enter the zone, or it will be regarded as a behavior of offside. For the time being, the game should stop when the referee blow his whistle, in order to restart the game, the ball will be taken back to the face-off point.
And two rules are also worth our attention, one is the specification of the ice hockey’s venue size and regional partition problem, the other is the time and participants of ice hockey games. For example, the area of the hockey field and the construction bureau, every game will have six people playing on the ground.
