Home Jerseys are Dark and the Pre-Game Handshake Returns
Submitted By cmetzger on Monday, September 12, 2011
ALLIANCE Hockey has announced two changes for the upcoming 2011-12 season regarding the colour of jerseys teams will wear when home/away and the return of the traditional pre-game handshake.

Home and Away Jersey Colours for 2011-12 Season
The ALLIANCE has decided that Home teams will now where dark jerseys and away teams will wear light jerseys for the upcoming season. The change will take place for the start of league play 2011-12 for all AAA hockey.

Handshake prior to Game
A decision was also made to return to the traditional handshake for all AAA hockey for the 2011-12 Season. The handshake will take place prior to the game with both teams lining up at centre ice. Referees have been instructed to blow the whistle with 30 seconds remaining in the warm-up to clean up pucks and get the ice cleared prior to shaking hands.

These changes are for ALLIANCE league, play-down and play-off games only. Coaching staffs should check with individual tournaments and exhibition games with non-ALLIANCE teams for their policy and standards.
