Thigh Boards Vs Thigh Protection
Thigh Guard/Protector Piece of equipment which directly attaches to a goalie's knees and protects the upper Knee and lower thigh.
Thigh Guard/Protector -Form fitted to the knee and thigh. -Contoured to the leg. -Does not provide an advantage by covering the “5 hole”.
When the goalie is down on the ice, the guards offer knee and thigh protection without additional “5 hole” coverage
Thigh Board Padding that is generally laced into the pad to cover the 5-hole and protect the upper knee and lower thigh.
Thigh Boards are NOT Contoured to the leg. Usually “Hinged” to the pad. Made of nonflexible materials Usually a rectangle of hardened foam

Its come a long way … ACHA has been around now for over 20 years One of its goals has been to run club hockey in a professional manner Implementing a game protocol will make the overall experience better for the players, coaches, officials and fans It will also improve the quality of the game, especially when there is limited or late start times.
Why have Protocol? This topic has been added to discuss implementing the protocol guidelines that are outlined in the rulebook [Rule 8] To accommodate the varying ice time allotments, protocol can be modified [Rule 8 interpretations]. Rule 8 outlines pre-game, between periods and overtime
Proposed Protocol - Pregame This can be modified to accommodate the ice time available. Time on ClockEvent 32:00Ice Resurfacer enters ice – Clock starts pre-game protocol 20:00HORN – Warning to players 5 minutes until on ice 16:00Officials on Ice 15:00Players on ice for warm-ups (this start time can fluctuate depending on agreed upon amount of warm-up up time) 7:00HORN – one minute warning to players for end of warm-ups 6:00HORN indicating players to assemble on goal lines for Starting lineups. Remainder of players to bench. 5:00Starting Line-ups announced, National Anthem. Officials check goaltenders 0:00Game Begins
Protocol – Between Periods Once the period ends, the teams immediately leave the ice. [Rule 55 - Bench Minor] Depending on ice availability 12 or 15 min. intermission. Clock time for intermission below.

Head Contact NCAA Midseason Video (click here) Head Contact Hitting from Behind
Head Contact Contact to the Head SECTION 8. A player shall not target and make contact with an opposing player’s head or neck area in any manner (including, but not limited to, with the shoulder, stick, elbow, etc.). PENALTY—Major and game misconduct or disqualification at the discretion of the referee. The committee reminds coaches and players that the responsibility remains with the player making the hit to avoid contact with the head and neck area of an opposing player. Any contact which directly targets the player’s head and neck area must be penalized with a major penalty and a game misconduct or disqualification. A player delivering a check to an unsuspecting and vulnerable player puts themselves in jeopardy of being penalized under this rule.
Head Contact Officials are to pay particular attention to these examples when applying this rule. These are intended as guidance and include, but are not limited to, the following: A player that has just released a shot or pass; A player that delivers a late hit; A player that extends and directs the arm, elbow, forearm or shoulder to contact the head and neck area of the opponent; A player that extends the body and targets the opponent’s head or neck area; A player that leaves their skates or launches in order to deliver a blow to the head or neck area of the opposing player; and A player that uses the stick in any way to target the head or neck area (e.g., cross checking, butt-ending, etc.). As additional guidance, when the initial force of the contact is a shoulder to the body of the opponent and then slides up to the head or neck area, this is not classified as contact to the head. This type of action may still be penalized, at the referee’s discretion, as another penalty (e.g., charging, roughing, etc.).
