In this tutorial, we will learn about shootouts and how they work.
Each team gets three (3) attempts to score goals. The team with the most goals at the end of the shootout is the winning team.
If the score is tied after three attempts, a sudden-death format will determine the winner. The next team to score a goal wins if the other team misses.
There are few additional rules that you must remember about shootouts:
- The goalie cannot be changed out unless he is injured.
- Timeouts cannot be used
- No player can shoot again until all eligible players have shot
Shootouts are defined by a strict procedure:
Step 1: The home team has the choice of which team goes first.
Step 2: The coach chooses players on the team to take the shots. Players can be anyone on the team, as long as they are not currently serving a misconduct penalty, game misconduct penalty, or a match penalty.
