Look Up Line
Submitted By Kelly Palmer on Monday, June 19, 2017
The City of Hamilton is doing a pilot project this year at Harry Howell and Carlisle Arenas. They will be installing a Look Up Line.

This is for the hockey organizations but all ice users need to understand what this is for regardless of their use. 


The Look-Up Line™, ice hockey’s warning track; is an adjunct to decreasing the risk injuries along the boards. This thought provoking warning track extends 40-inches in width around the entire circumference of the rink. The Look-Up Line™ does NOT affect the speed, intensity or heritage of the game of hockey, or require any new playing rules.

The Look-Up Line™ serves to:
1. Warn players to keep their heads up when approaching the boards to decrease the risk of injuries
2. Warn players to be careful not to body check (contact) opposing players from behind
3. Give players an opportunity to make proper bodily adjustments before hitting the boards
4. Alleviate the failure to warn (board related) issue that currently exists at all levels in hockey
5. Remind on ice coaches and officials to continue to warn players about safety in hockey

The Look-Up Line™ is colored a PANTONE 151c safety orange. This color orange does not interfere with any current on ice markings and is universally associated with caution. The 40-inch warning track does not overlap any face-off dots, lower circles, or hash marks.

** Our FHA Head Trainer will be keeping injury statistics to compare to past seasons.
