As in the beginning
Four against four, without a goalie, body checks and high shots are not allowed. That?s how the purest form of ice hockey is played. As in the olden days, there is no referee on the ice however per game, there is one official monitor called the "Courmonitor" who makes sure that all rules are followed. Games will be composed of two 15-minute halves, hard work for the players without substitutions. This strenuous and yet wonderful and simple way of playing is how pond hockey is characterized.
