Penalty Box Timer standard procedure
« on: March 11, 2011, 11:12:11 pm »
Here is the scenerio: Jammer is in the penalty box-bench coach yells "how much time?"-jammer asks timer-timer says 20 seconds.  She yells back to the coach "20 seconds". Next jam starts, THEN the timer says: "until stand". My question is, wouldn't standard procedure be to tell skater the total time left? Is this an issue that should be brought up in the pre-bout meeting?

From Appendix A: WFTDA Officiating Standard Practices as at http://wftda.com/rules:

[rule]Communication of Penalty Time Remaining

Besides warning skaters when they have ten seconds left, when else should penalty timers tell a skater how much penalty time they have remaining?

In addition to telling skaters to stand at 10 seconds, and telling skaters they are done at 0 seconds, timers should update a skater when skaters ask how much penalty time is remaining, within reason.[/rule]

So I would infer from that, that a timer should indeed inform the skater of the total amount of time remaining, rather than any amount until "stand". The time remaining for the penalty in total is certainly the timing I've always given when requested.

Yes, the time remaining is what should be reported to the skater when asked. Remaining time is exactly as it sounds.
