Regardless of the level played, a competitive game of adult inline hockey has 4 periods of play, each lasting 12 minutes.



If  both teams have scored the same amount of goals at the end of the final period, there may be either a sudden-death period of overtime or a best of 3 shootout which involves a skater from one team shooting at a goalkeeper of the other team. If after 3 attempts from both teams the number of goals are still equal, the shootout will continue until there is a clear winner.
