Delaying the call on four-in

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:

  1. If the team in control of the ring skates four-in, make the call immediately.
  2. Otherwise, raise a bent arm to signal a delayed violation.
  3. If the 4th player leaves the zone before their team gains control - begin a five second count.
  4. If the ring leaves the zone before the team gains control - no call will be made.
  5. If the team gains control in the zone within the five second count - make the call.
  6. 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.


Ringette Canada Official Rules



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.
