FIH AND NCAA RULES
The National Field Hockey League adopts the NCAA Rules as our foundation rules in hopes of providing consistency during regulation and tournament league games.
However, the following are rules specific to the NFHL and must be maintained by all members of the league. Please recognize these rules and note them to officials as per each regulation league game.
Coaches and captains should always bring the NCAA rules, NFHL rules and Summary of Rule Changes to every game, in case there is confusion with umpires or other teams. If teams want to modify any rules (e.g. if both teams agree to play with more male players, etc.), all teams involved in the game/tournament must be in agreement prior to the game. All modifications and agreements (from all teams) must be in writing (email) in case of a dispute.
