Each game will consist of two 12-minute halves, with a running clock. Play will not stop unless there is an injury. If a puck goes out of bounds, the official will restart the game with a faceoff at center. After a goal is scored, the puck will be pulled out of the net and play will resume with that team in immediate possession. The scoring team will retreat to center before play resumes.

The games are cross-ice games going from blue line to end boards, and then across from side board to side board. The blue lines will be lined with borders to keep the playing area established. Goal nets will be placed approximately 5 feet off the side boards to allow play behind the net. Two games will take place simultaneously, with the neutral zone open for subs and officials.

Each team is guaranteed three games in round-robin play, and there are potentially more with playoffs.
