There are several penalties available; they usually fall under either team or personal penalties:

  • Free hit: For any minor offense outside the circle, or any serious one between the 23 metre lines.
  • 10 metre march: For misconduct after the award of a penalty by the original offenders, between the 23 metre lines.
  • Reversal: For misconduct by the team given the free hit in the first place - the free hit is then reversed to the other team.
  • Penalty coner: For any offense which would normally receive a free hit, a deliberate offense inside the circle against an attacker who has no opportunity to play the ball, deliberate infringements outside the circle but inside the 23 metre area, and deliberately playing the ball over the backline by a defender.
  • Penalty stroke: For an offense which "prevents the probable scoring of a goal", a deliberate offense against an attacker who had an opportunity to play the ball, and persistently breaking early on a penalty corner.
  • Warning/Caution: Telling the player personally to control their play or behaviour; often given to the captain for not controlling their team or staff.
  • Green card: "Last chance" - the player is formally warned for their actions, and has had their last chance. May also be awarded to a defender who breaks early on a penalty stroke.
  • Yellow card: The player must leave the field for a specified time, until called back on by the umpire; the team must play one short until then. A minimum of 5 minutes, but as long as the umpire deems appropriate. Often for more serious and deliberate offenses, and following a green card for the same offense.
  • Red card: The player must leave the game completely. It is exceedingly rare, and is often awarded only for the most serious of misconduct (assaulting a player or official, usually). The team must play one short for the rest of the game. All tournaments and competitions will have a hearing to discuss the matter and most will give a one or two match suspension.
Ice Hockey
  • Minor (2 minutes): These are called for infractions such as hooking, tripping, high sticking etc.
  • Double Minor (4 minutes): For any two of the above infractions.
  • Major (5 minutes): Usually assessed to the player(s) involved in an on-ice altercation. (fighting)
  • Game Misconduct (10 minutes): For profane or abusive language and or actions toward an official.
  • Match (rest of the game): For deliberately and/or maliciously injuring an opponent.
