Title: Standing for 10 seconds
Post by: Ace of Bass on August 26, 2018, 10:34:33 pm
I have had several discussion on this. A player is in the box. Their time comes and they are told to stand. The old 2012 rules say, very specifically, they must stand upright. The new rules do not. If the player is standing in the box with their hands on their knees, we have told them they must stand all the way up. After watching a championship cup where they didn't care, does it matter?

Relevant verbage from the rules:

[rule]Sitting

A Skater whose buttocks are in full contact with the seat of a chair or bench.

Standing

A Skater holding their body weight on their skates, such that they are not Down and it is obvious to Officials, Skaters, and spectators that they are not Sitting.[/rule]
