Playing without Goalkeepers

05/05/2015 02:07 PM

Contact: | Show PDF File

The LGSHA rules regarding Goal Keepers (or player with goal keeping privileges) is aligned with Hockey WA (Junior League and Provisional & Metropolitan League Rules).

The FIH Rule that allows teams to play without a goalkeeper does not apply to any Hockey WA Competition.

Junior Grades (MP, UP, LHS & U18)


Each team must play with a goalkeeper with goalkeeping privileges wearing full protective equipment comprised of at least protective headgear (full goalkeeping helmet, not just a mask), leg guards and kickers and a different coloured shirt

Senior Grades (MA, WA, MB, WB)


Each team must play with either:

  • a goalkeeper with goalkeeping privileges wearing full protective equipment comprised of at least protective headgear (full goalkeeping helmet, not just a mask), leg guards and kickers and a different coloured shirt; or
  • a goalkeeper with goalkeeping privileges wearing only protective headgear (full goalkeeping helmet, not just a mask) and a different coloured shirt.

Stuff That Happens At The Wrong Time!!

05/05/2015 02:04 PM


1. Umpire blows the whistle for PC and the ball ends up in the goal

We’ve all been in this situation haven’t we!! You are about to crack the dream goal of the century but the umpire calls PC for the little foot off the defender.....OR .... the ball did end up in the goal immediately after the whistle went.

The right decision?? = No Goal: The PC must be played. Yes... correct use of “advantage” would have resulted in the goal but as an umpire you have to admit your mistake and play the PC. Umpires need to manage this situation by being calm, apologetic and clearly communicate why the PC has to stand 

2. Goals or PC just before siren (or was it actually after??)

What happens when the siren/time goes just before the umpire would have made a decision?? (Basically something happens and the umpire hasn’t had a chance to get the whistle to the mouth to blow the whistle.)

FIH’s guidance is that the umpire is permitted to make that decision immediately after the end of the half or match. Examples include;

  1. A PC, PS (stroke) or even a personal penalty (eg green/yellow card) can be awarded for an offence that occurs immediately before the siren goes
  2. A goal can be awarded provided the BALL has crossed the line BEFORE the siren
  3. A goal cannot be awarded if the ball has been struck by an attacker and is “in transit” but has not crossed the line when the siren goes.
