Monitoring games

  • In case of significant delays, making the call to change to "Zamboni time" (50 minutes allotment only). All pads have slush at the end so this should be reserved to where there have been significant delays only. All means necessary must be used to avoid curfew for any game.
  • Monitoring coaches and Spectators

  • All arenas will have officiating supervisors who may at any time request assistance they are there to evaluate and supervise the officials but will alert the rep if they notice issues
  • Coaches who are behaving inappropriately can be ejected at any time by the on-ice officials, the officiating supervisor, or the Western Region Rep.

  • Spectators are not permitted in the dressing room areas.
  • Some leniency is allowed for younger teams where parents are assisting in dressing. Older players can come out to the more public areas for skate tying

  • When the PLAYER is serving their suspension, s/he is not permitted in the Player's area of the arena before, during, or after the game
  • When the PLAYER is serving their suspension, s/he may sit in the stands with the spectators

Coach ejections/suspensions etc.

  • While under suspension, a player or coach is suspended from ALL ringette activities. This includes coaching, playing, officiating, working as a minor official, and working as a volunteer. If any of these apply, please contact Nancy NH. For officials, please advise the officiating supervisor immediately (if they are not already aware).

Shot clocks

  • Ensure that the shot clocks have been setup and tested
  • After the last game of the tournament, ensure that the shot clocks are taken down and returned to the tournament office at Aptiva..
  • Thursday: Elmira shot clocks go to Sportsworld for Friday (setup on on Spec, the 2nd is backup as PRAC has an integrated Shot Clock
  • Thursday: St Jacobs shot clock goes to AMC as a backup (take to convenors room)
  • Thurs Sat: AMC shot clocks are integrated and reliable. There will be no backup on Thursday.
  • Thurs Sat: Activa PJD has a shot clock, Alumni will require setup. PJD's shot clock is not 100% reliable. As such it is preferable to use a portable. The City has advised that these can be setup on Wed night.

Game sheets

  • All game sheets must be scanned and sent to rose@ score2stats.com as soon as possible.

Medal Presentations

  • All medal presentations will be off-ice.
  • Teams are to change and clear the dressing room before they go to get their medals
  • Work with the arena conveners to have the medal sticks ready for the next game
  • Medal presenters should thank both teams and have the coaches introduce their players
  • Ask the coach if they would like to put the medals on, or if they would like you to do it.
  • For all Bronze games the team not receiving the Bronze medal should still be encouraged to attend the medal ceremony. Their coach can say a few words but the team will not be individually introduced. This is an important part of sportsmanship.
  • If the non-Bronze team does not wish to attend, they should not be forced.
  • For Gold/Silver games, Silver medals are presented first, and Gold second
  • For all medal presentations, let the teams know how much time they have after the presentation for pictures. If the next teams are waiting, or very little time will be available, suggest an alternate location for pictures.
