As with regular hockey, the object of the game is to shoot the puck into the opponent's goal. At the conclusion of the three, 12 minute periods, the team with the most goals will be declared the winner.

All players are required to wear protective equipment including helmets with full face shields, hockey shin guards, elbow pads, in-line skates and gloves. All players must also wear in-line skates without any brakes or brake assemblies. Players must bring their own equipment, however, it is subject to the approval of the sports supervisor.

Goalies are also expected to wear the appropriate protective gear. This includes a helmet, chest protector, goalie glove, goalie blocker, pads and an athletic cup.
