Proposal 12: 14B.5 Number Of Players - Clarification of how to substitute players. [ Revision 3 ]Committee: Hockey
Submitted on 2018-11-19
Status: Passed on December 20, 2018
Give strict guidelines on how to substitute players
14B.5 Number Of Players
A team consists of five players (plus substitutes). Substituting one player for another is possible at any time. It is not necessary to indicate it to the Referee. The new player must enter the field where the other has left it. Each player can be the goalkeeper at any time. The goalkeeper has no special rights. To take part in a game, a team must have at least three players.
14 B.5 Number Of Players
A team on the field consists of up to five players with a team requiring a minimum of three players to begin a match. Player substitutions are possible at any time with the substituting player entering the field at the same location only after the other has completely left it. It is not necessary to indicate substitutions to the Referee. Each player can be the goalkeeper at any time. The goalkeeper has no special rights.
This gives clear guidelines on how to substitute.
If a team is playing with less than 5 (not due to having a person sent off) they don't have to wait for the player to completely leave the field as it technically is not a "substitution"
If a team is playing with less than 5 due to someone being sent off they DO have to wait for the player to completely leave the field before substituting.
I believe these examples do not need to be given as this is obvious?
