The competition format

Format and rules to be confirmed

Mixed hockey squads of up to 16 men and women (8 men and 8 women) competing. The competition will be run on 2 pitches - 1 newly laid water based pitch and 1 Astro turf pitch. 


1. All players must be subscribing members of CSSC. 

2. The duration of the games, the timetable and the format of the competition will be advised prior to the event after all entries have been received. (The competition will be run as a Round Robin or Groups competition dependant on the number of entries received.)

3. The games will be played in accordance with FIH (International Hockey Federation) rules with the following amendment:

4. Teams shall consist of eleven players on pitch:

  • a goalkeeper who may be male or female (all appropriate safety gear must be worn at all times of play)
  • there can be no more than five male outfield players on the pitch at any one time
  • squad sizes will not exceed sixteen players
  • no player may represent more than one team during the tournament
  • the first named team will provide the match ball
  • In the event of a colour clash, the second named team will change.

5. The organisers reserve the right to change the rules in any way to benefit the tournament.

6. If semi-finals are played and there is no winning team at full time then penalty flicks will be taken - five nominated players to take from each team. (If the result still remains drawn after this, then sudden death penalties will ensue - the five original players will be permitted to take again followed by other members of the team on the pitch at the end of the match). Penalties will be taken alternately by the teams.

7. If a final is played and there is no winning team at full time, the teams will change ends and play a further five minutes each way. If there is still no result then penalties will be taken as in 6.

8. If group games have been played and there is a tie for finishing positions in the group then the following will be applied:

  • Goal difference
  • Goals for
  • Goals against
  • The result between the game of the tied teams

9. If teams are still equal after this has been computed then penalty flicks will take place (following the guidelines in 7).

10. In any dispute over the rules the decision of the organisers will be final.
