Play the ring! Sticks down!

When an On-Ice Official is yelling "Play the ring" or "Sticks down" it is usually because there is an infraction occurring that is illegal, but has not yet caused a material change in advantage - and therefore there is no penalty to be called yet. (see The First Principle of Officiating).

Often this is due to using your body or stick to interfere on a play, or due to over enthusiastic checking that is getting too high - up near the hands, etc.

When you hear an Official calling these phrases out, consider what you're doing and pull back if you think you're at fault. If a material change of advantage does occur - you're likely to get a penalty.



The Eastman Ringette Association is very proud to acknowledge that our very own Danielle Hildebrand (Hobday) was recently inducted into the Ringette Canada Hall of Fame.  Danielle began playing in Eastman as a first year U19.  During her first year, Danielle was coached by Leon Morrisette who convinced her to give up her Angel affiliation and become a Flame.  Danielle participated in several National Championships where she selected to four National All Star teams. At age 16, Danielle began coaching AA with her father, Barry Hobday, and Mike Carrier and continued to coach AA for about 10 years and was part of the coaching staff that won Eastman’s only National Championship in 1997.  Danielle played for the Canada's National team for 9 years and was instrumental in winning Canada’s last world championship in 2002.  Canada won that championship 3-1 and Danille scored goals 2 and 3.  She was also selected to the 6 player all-star team as a forward.  More recently, Danielle was head coach of the Team Manitoba for the Canada Winter Games team that were hosted in Whitehorse in 2007.  Danielle is currently an assistant coach of the Canada's Junior National team.
