International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) in their ongoing campaign to increase the promotion and development of women’s ice hockey around the world, are pleased to announce the launch of the IIHF Video Rule Book – Women’s Hockey.
The aim of this resource is to help National Associations in their understanding the IIHF playing Rules and specifically the rules interpretation governing women’s ice hockey.
The IIHF hopes that the Video Rule Book together with the IIHF DVD “Officiating Standard for Women’s Hockey” which was distributed to all National Associations will assist in the development of all areas of women’s ice hockey; female players, coaches and game officials.
