Basic DEK Hockey Rules:

The object of the game quite simply is to strike the ball with the hockey stick and knock it into the opponent's hockey net 5 feet wide x 4 feet high). Typically, a low-bounce type of ball is used. We use a Mylec or D-Gel regulation ball. For added safety, hockey gloves and helmets are recommended, and in fact are mandatory for play in our member leagues.

Any size or type of non-slip flooring can be used as a playing field. Red River Hockey league games are usually played at the Ag Building on the LA State Fairgrounds in Shreveport on a sports tile floor measuring 100’ x 50’. Extra players are kept on each bench, outside the playing surface, and interchanged with the players on the floor either during play or at a stoppage of play. 


The following are additional rules:

 • Face-offs are only conducted at the beginning of each period and after a score. After a freezing of the ball by the goalie or a ball brought back into play from out of bounds, the team possessing the ball has three (3) seconds to bring the ball in play from behind the goal/base line. Opposing players cannot attack the ball until after the three seconds expires or until the ball is played across the bass line.

• Penalties are called when a player commits a foul. See above information about penalties. Boxing out and minimal body contact is allowed. Other penalties such as tripping, slashing, cross checking, interference, and roughing will be enforced.

• No offsides and no icing/flooring.

• To score a legal goal, it cannot be kicked in; nor struck with a stick above the shoulders; nor pushed in using the hand, nor while offside.

• Slap shots are legal. (Competitive only) A goal can be scored from anywhere in the playing surface.

• Each team will be allowed one (1) 30 second time-out per game. We will play with a running clock. The clock will only stop for injuries and goals. If the score is within 2 goals, the clock will stop every time play is interrupted in the last minute.



Rink Set-Up:

We will play on one 100’ x 50’ court with 4 or 5 players per side (including goalies). Each team will have approximately 7-10 members. Goals are dek hockey 5’ x 4’


Game length:

 Youth – Three (3) - 10 minute periods with two (2) 2-minute intermissions

Adults – Three (3) - 15 minute periods with two (2) 2-minute intermissions

Win = 2 points

Overtime or Shootout loss = 1 point

Regulation loss = 0 points

Tiebreaker will be determined by 1) Regulation/Overtime Wins, 2) Head-to-Head Record, 3) Goals For 4) Goals Against  




In case of a tie game at the end of regulation, after a 2-minute break; the game will resume with a 5-minute, sudden death overtime period. If the score is still tied after the overtime period, the teams will participate in a shoot-out.

Shootout – Three (3) players from each team will alternate shooting at the goalie. Whichever team makes the most goals wins the competition and their team is awarded the deciding goal. If after one round the score is still tied, the shootout will continue with other players until we have a winner. The Home team decides which team shoots first.




All minor penalties will result in a 2-minute penalty. A double minor penalty will result in a 4-minute penalty. A major penalty will result in a 5-minute penalty. A player will be ejected for a major penalty and may be subject to further disciplinary action. Minor Penalties include tripping, hooking, holding, interference, and minor roughing, slashing, high sticking, etc.

Fans, Parents, and Friends: Don’t embarrass yourself and the players by acting like a fool. Cheer them on and be supportive. Never criticize another player. I have no problem asking someone to leave who is causing problems. Please respect the coaches, referees and volunteers. Continuous foul language around youth is not tolerated.
