For July and August, The Gardens Ice House will provide FREE session for children and/ or grandchildren of any AHL (either season) or Geri-Hatric players on Sundays from 8:00- 8:50 AM.
Players must be 5 to 12 years old and must wear helmets. An adult must be present (not on the ice) to be the monitor- and that person must be indicated in advance to Nikki Goldschmitt or Billy Carr before any passionate youngsters can get on the ice. The adult is there to just be sure all goes smoothly. No adults should be on the ice as this is a chance for youngsters to learn how to manage 17,000 square feet of ice. This is an additional benefit of playing at The Gardens Ice House and we hope the youngsters are dreaming (after raising the Stanley Cup) of planning in the TGIH Adult League.

**LiveBarn will not be used as a tool to dispute calls made during games. ALL referees judgmental decisions are final and are not subject to protest, appeal or review.**
Rule 404 & 601(e) – If a player receives a 2nd 10 minute misconduct in any single game, he/she will now be given an AUTOMATIC Game Misconduct and a resulting 1 game suspension from further play. This shall be in ADDITION to any suspension earned through the regular rules.
Rule 411 – Any player who receives a 3rd major penalty during the same SEASON for any combination of aggressive infractions shall receive an additional 3 game suspension. For any player who receives a 4th major penalty in the same SEASON, the player shall receive an additional 4 game suspension. Any player who receives a 5th major penalty in the same SEASON shall be suspended from play indefinitely until a hearing is conducted by the PVAHA (NOT the Gardens Ice House itself) These suspensions shall be in ADDITION to any suspension earned through the regular rules. The aggressive infractions applying to this rule are:
Boarding, Body Checking, Butt-Ending, Charging, Checking from Behind, Cross Checking, Elbowing, Head Butting, Head Contact, High Sticking, Kicking, Kneeing, Slashing, Spearing, Tripping, Roughing (Fighting is covered under its own rule, both by USA Hockey and by The Gardens Ice House)
Any TEAM that receives 3 major penalties in the same GAME shall have its Captain suspended for the next game of that team. For any subsequent game where the team receives 3 or more major penalties in the same game, the Captain shall serve a 3 game suspension. For a 3rd game with 3 or more major penalties in the same game, the Captain shall be suspended from play indefinitely until a hearing is conducted by the PVAHA (NOT the Gardens Ice House itself) These suspensions shall be in ADDITION to any suspension earned through the regular rules.
The purpose of these rules is to cut down on excessive altercations during a game, which has become an all too prevalent occurrence during games. There is a separate sheet on the suspension page of The Gardens Ice House website ( http://gardensicehouse.pucksystems2.com/page/show/11452-suspensions ) where major penalties will be tracked.
Rule 603, 607, 608, & 620 – Any penalties assessed for Boarding, Charging, Checking from Behind, or Head Contact will now be assessed in the following way(s):
2 minute minor + 10 minute misconduct (an additional player from the offending team will be required to sit in the penalty box to “serve” the 2 minute portion)
5 minute major + Game misconduct (another player from the offending team will be required to sit in the penalty box to “serve” the 5 minute portion. The offending player will be suspended for 1 game. This shall be in ADDITION to any suspension earned through the regular rules.)
MATCH penalty (5 minutes will be placed on the clock as the “time” portion of the penalty and another player from the offending team will be required to sit in the penalty box to “serve” the 5 minute portion. The offending player shall be suspended from play indefinitely until a hearing is conducted by the League Director, Tom Hendrix.)

The Gardens Ice House is a Non Checking Adult Hockey League. Even though it is a non checking adult league due to contact with the boards and incidental contact on ice we highly recommend that ALL players wear complete hockey gear, including should pads.
