IHA is now Ice Hockey Australia Limited

After a review of the existing IHA constitution which began in March 2017, it was agreed to adopt a new constitution based upon the template provided by the Australian Sports Commission which is used by over 90% of the sporting bodies in Australia. The new constitution was presented at a Special General Meeting of IHA held on May 25, 2018, where the members voted to adopt the new document and structure.

This sees us move from the previous Association structure to a company limited by guarantee which will have a board of directors elected by  the members of IHA (States plus the AIHL and OiHAN)

Since that time, we have been working through the steps/paperwork required to register the new entity.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) have accepted the registration of the new company – Ice Hockey Australia Limited ACN 629 477 890, and we are therefore now governed by the new constitution which is published at www.iha.org.au/governance

At the upcoming AGM, there will be elections for 3 new directors to join the Board of IHA.

2018-2022 New Rules Overview

The 2018-2022 IIHF Rule Book was published by the IIHF on 2 July 2018 (New Rule Book is here) introducing a number of major and minor rule changes.  Prior to the publication of the new rule book, Referees-in-Chief from around the world came together at the 2018 IIHF Global Officiating Summit to familiarise themselves with the new rule book and discuss interpretations amongst their peers.

To assist game officials, team officials, and players with the transition to the new rule book, a 2018-2022 New Rules Overview bulletin and videos have been developed to outline the major and minor rule changes to the rule book.
