The four-in call often leads to confusion on the ice. This is because the rules do not require that play be stopped when four-in occurs until the team with four-in gains control of the ring.
The procedure that On-ice Officials are to follow on a four-in situation is:
- If the team in control of the ring skates four-in, make the call immediately.
- Otherwise, raise a bent arm to signal a delayed violation.
- If the 4th player leaves the zone before their team gains control - begin a five second count.
- If the ring leaves the zone before the team gains control - no call will be made.
- If the team gains control in the zone within the five second count - make the call.
- If the team gains control while there are still four-in, a delayed penalty should be called.
Next time, before you start yelling four-in: check the signal being given by the On-ice Official nearest the freeplay line.

Lorette Ringette held their annual bottle drive again in November. However, this year they decided to to put a bit of a spin on this annual event by helping those less fortunate. The players asked for blanket donations as they went door to door and managed to collect 50 blankets which were then provided to the Steinbach Community Outreach Organization for the homeless.
The Eastman Ringette Association's Player Development Committee is pleased to announce two player development streams for the 2016/17 season. The first stream is targetted at players and coaches in the various Eastman communities and will see an MRA-certified and junior instructor lead up to four practices to develop skills at no charge. For more details, click on the following link:
The second stream is targetted at players who have a desire to play A or AA. This stream will focus on developing skills, team play and Ringette "IQ" necessary to play at a higher level and will also incorporate a 3 on 3 game component where learned skills will be put to the test.
