Ringette Ontario Tie-Breaker Rules

Ajax Pickering Ringette - Supplemental Tournament Rules 

 

Additionally:

  • For all tournament games, home teams will wear their dark jerseys and visiting teams will wear their light jerseys.

  • All teams should be prepared to play up to 10 minutes prior to scheduled start times.

  • Shot clock and Game clock will be operated by Minor Officials provided by Ajax Pickering Ringette Association. We wish to thank those officials from outside our association who have stepped forward to support our tournament.

  • Any abuse of Minor Officials or On-ice Officials will not be tolerated.

  • As a condition of Ajax and Pickering's ice contracts, absolutely no one is permitted to be on the ice unless wearing a helmet (all arenas). Please ensure trainers bring a spare helmet to have on the bench at all times in case they need to attend to an injured player. Before or after games, bench staff are prohibited from stepping on the ice; however, we encourage all players to skate by the opposing team’s bench to shake hands with bench staff.

  • Noise makers such as cow bells, compressed air horns and drums will be permitted for the event. HOWEVER, LONG BLOW HORNS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED. THESE ARE AEROSOL GENERATING DEVICES AND IF WE HAVE LEARNED ANYTHING FROM THE PANDEMIC, IT IS THAT SPEWING ONE’S LUNG CONTENTS ACROSS A CROWD IS A VERY BAD IDEA.
