1. League Philosophy
- The philosophy of the SL County Youth 3 on 3 Hockey is to bolster skills such as passing, shooting, and team play in a fun, recreational but competitive and educational setting.
- Every effort is made to ensure fair play and sportsmanship among players and coaches.
- Equal opportunity is stressed for every player.
2. Game Format
- Each time slot is 1 hour 15 minutes.
- Each time slot has 3 fifteen minute games, i.e. each team plays 3 games.
- Each time slot will begin with a 5 minute warm-up.
- Each game will have 3-five minute periods, running-time with a 1 minute break between periods.
- After the conclusion of the first game, there is a 2 minute break, the teams then rotate to their next scheduled game.
- Each game will have one referee.
- The referee is responsible for calling penalties, and overall game management.
- A game supervisor will oversee the general management of the games each week.
3. The Rink
- The ice surface is divided into 3 sections. Games are played in each end from the blue line to the end boards and cross-ice.
- The neutral zone acts as a player's bench as well as the coaches and officials area.
- Across each blue line will be a 12 inch high barrier to help keep pucks in play.
- Nets will be placed approximately 4 feet from the side dasher boards.
- No checking for all divisions.
- Penalties result in a penalty shot for the offended team.
- Once the penalty shot has been taken, a face off takes place if a goal is scored. If not, then the puck is given to the defensive team. The team given the puck must be allowed to complete one pass before they can be challenged.
- Face-offs are only held after goals are scored.
- Change on the fly is a from designated change zone only. This area, approximately from the neutral zone off-side dots to the boards, acts as the player's bench.
- If a puck leaves the playing area, the referee determines which team caused the stoppage. The puck is then given to the other team in the area the puck was lost. The team given the puck must be allowed to complete one pass before they can be challenged.
- If a shot on goal results in the goalie covering the puck, then the puck is given to the defensive team and play is resumed. The team given the puck must be allowed to complete one pass before they can be challenged.
- No overtime and no time outs.
- Standings will not be kept or posted.
- Game scores will not be kept.
- Each team will consist of a minimum of 4 skaters and a maximum of 9 skaters (see the section #7 for goalie information). Teams may be entered as a combined unit, and/or teams will be created by program management from individual registrations. The Coach/Team Manager is responsible for submitting names of players for any team they are forming so we know what players are suppose to be on that team when parents come in and request to be put on a particular coach's team. Player's won't be put on a team unless his/her name is on the coaches list AND PAYMENT IS RECEIVED FOR THAT PLAYER! And to re-emphasize SPACE IS LIMITED!
- SL County Administration can add independent players to any team until the maximum number of skaters (9) is reached. Maximum of 32 skaters and 4 goalies per age division.
- Each team will have a volunteer coach or coaches. Coaches are to be on skates and remain in the neutral zone during the games. Coaches MUST wear helmets while on the ice!
- Teams will have matching jerseys except for goaltenders which will have the same color jersey.
- Teams will be rotated in order to play each of the other teams each week.
- Teams can be composed of travel team players, recreational players or a combination of both.
6. PLAYER REGISTRATION
- If your son/daughter will be moving up a division for the 2017-18 season due to age, you have the choice of registering your child in the age division he/she played in during the 16-17 season OR registering him/her in the age division in which he/she will be playing in the 2017-18 season.

We are always seeking new people, experienced or not, to make the program better for the kids. If you have a desire to help with the program in any capacity, please sign up on the player's registration form.

All Salt Lake County ice facilities offer Learn To Play hockey programs to prepare your child to play on a County Youth League team. The Learn To Play program teaches the basics of the game and gives your child the necessary individual skills and confidence to fully enjoy their participation in county hockey programs.

*Players must have completed at least one season in an organized hockey league such as the Salt Lake County Youth Hockey League or an equivalent level of play to play in the Summer 3 on 3 program.
THE SUMMER 3 ON 3 PROGRAM IS NOT FOR CURRENT LEARN-TO-PLAY PLAYERS. AS IT IS VERY COMPETITIVE AND ABOVE THEIR CURRENT ABILITIES.
