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.
The Eastman U16AA Flames are Provincial champs! The Flames won the Provincial title today defeating the U16AA Angels 5 to 4 in overtime. The Angels rallied from two, two-goal deficits during today's game to tie it twice and send it into ovetime. The Flames won the best-of-three seires two games to none - each game only being won by one goal. Both games were hard-fought victories by the Flames who were matched against a very talented and determined Angels team.
The Flames were neck and neck with the Angles during the regular season; each team finishing the season with the same number of points. The Flames were awarded first place after a second tie breaker and received a bye for the first round of the Provincial playoffs. The Flames will now be "Team Manitoba" in the U16AA division at the upcoming 2016 National Ringette Championships in London, ON during April 3 to 9. The U16AA Angels will also be competing in the National Ringette Championships so Ringette fans in Manitoba can take comfort in the fact that the province will be represented by two very skilled teams.
GO FLAMES, GO!
The MRA formally requests those individuals interested in coaching one of the U14AA, U16AA or U19AA teams in the 2016/2017 season to submit their application to the MRA office by March 14, 2016.
Applications are online this season, please Click Here to complete the application form.
If you have any questions, please contact Laralie Higginson, 204-925-5712 or email@example.com.
All players wishing to play AA must register online directly through the MRA website –online registration system, not with their Local Association. Manual registrations will not be accepted.
Registrations open Friday, February 26, 2016 and close on March 14, 2016 (11:59 p.m.). The registration fee is $85.00. A late fee of $50.00 will apply for registrations received after March 14th until March 18th.
The AA Tryouts for the 2016-2017 season will be held April 18 – April 30 at Southdale Arena.
ANY ATHLETE WISHING TO PLAY IN THE AA PROGRAM MUST REGISTER AND ATTEND THE AA TRYOUTS.
*If a player is unable to attend tryouts they will be excused for the following reasons only:
- Family death or health emergency
- School sanctioned event (not including the High School ringette tournament)
- Sickness or injury, accompanied by a doctor’s note
- Religious beliefs
All absentees must be written and provided to the tryout coordinator, Tami Bain (firstname.lastname@example.org) & AA Chair Penny Lesperance (email@example.com) as soon as you are aware of proposed absence. The AA committee will determine a fair evaluation for these players. However, if a player does not attend tryouts for reasons other than noted above, their score could prevent their placement on a AA team.
U14 - (born in '03 & '04) - We anticipate having 4 teams at the U14 age level.
U16 - (born in '01 and '02) - We anticipate having 3 teams at the U16 level. The intent of the AA committee is to form 4 teams at this age group if registration numbers are sufficient and skills are considered at a AA level. The final determination of the number of U16 AA teams will not be made until evaluations are completed.
U19 - (born in '98, 99 & 00) - The intent of the AA Committee is to form three (3) teams at the U19 age group. The final determination of U19 team formation will not be made until evaluations are completed.
The 2016-2017 AA tryouts will be operated in a centrally coordinated manner, so that the evaluation of the athlete is consistent. After tryouts are complete, teams formed, athletes who were not selected will be required to return to their home association. If a player is selected to play on a team outside of their catchment area and the player declines to play, they will not be selected to another AA team. It is the intent of the AA committee to allow all AA evaluated players to have the opportunity to be selected for a AA team.
