\\WAIVERS

Every Camel Toe Cup player and "bench staff" MUST sign and submit a waiver before participating in the tournament.

Waivers will be available at the arena, or if you are a real go-getter...... well just slow down! We haven't finalized the waiver yet! But once we do, a pdf copy will be available to download and print from this site.  Then you can fill it out, forget it at home and still end up using one of the waivers provided at the arena.

 

\\RINGETTE RULES

  • Much like soccer, play begins with a “Free Pass.” At the referee’s whistle, a visiting team’s player takes the ring from the Centre Ice Free Pass Circle (the Face-Off Circle in hockey), and has five seconds to pass it out of the circle to a teammate. A free pass will re-start the game after every stoppage, only from the circle closest to the action when play ceased. During restarts, the ring must be passed completely out of the circle. The player cannot skate out of the circle with the ring nor are players allowed in the Free Pass Circle during the five second count.

  • Rules restrict players from carrying the ring over a blue line in either direction so players must pass the ring over each blue line to a teammate. If the ring hits an opponent, the same player may then play the ring.

  • If the ring lands in or on the goalie crease, the only player who can touch it is the goalkeeper, who must pick up the ring and throw it/pass it to a teammate within five seconds.

  • A 30 second shot clock is utilized, meaning a ring must be shot at the net or hit the goalie within that time-frame or the offensive team loses possession.

  • Free play lines define restricted areas in the deep offensive and defensive zones. Teams are allowed no more than three skaters at a time in these areas to avoid over-crowding, unless two or more penalties are being served by one team, or if a goalie has been pulled for an extra attacker.

  • It is imperative that sticks are kept below the waist at all times for safety. Raising the tip of your stick above your hip at any time will result in a 2 min penalty.
