"A ring on or touching the blue line is simultaneously in both of the zones bounded by that line and is playable by all eligible players."
When the ring is on or touching the blue line, nearly any player may play the ring and carry it into either zone. The player who last touched the ring may only carry the ring back into the zone where they last touched it, or they can tap the ring to pass it into the other zone.
In the image above, the player who last touched the ring may only shoot or pass rings 1,2,4,5 or 6 into the next zone. They may not play ring 3. Any other player may carry rings 2,4,5 & 6 into either zone, and can play rings 1 & 3 normally.

Hello!My name is Michelle Romanuk. I currently play for Macdonald Sizzlers in Open 5 but I spare regularly for Open 4, 3 and 2. My team is no longer putting in a team for spring and I am looking for either a ringette or hockey team to join. You can text me at 204-299-2282 or email me at email@example.com. I work for pro hockey life and they are very good for making sure I don't work during my scheduled games. So if you need a goalie for the spring season I am your girl!
