Cut track clarification
« on: July 07, 2011, 12:34:15 am »
Hey, I'm a relatively new ref (actually, greener than the spring grass) but something came up yesterday at training which got me, and the other ref kinda stumped.

The coach was going over cutting (cut track) and was saying that if a player is hit out of bounds, she only needs to go in behind the person who hit her out. The ref I was with made 'I'm not sure about this' sounds and started to look through his book. I'm not sure whether he found a satisfactory outcome to this, so I thought I'd put it to the community.....

I would have thought it would be about ensuring the skater does not improve her relative position, but this opens up a kettle of worms: if the skaters in front of the 'outed' skater decide to (say) en masse, drop back, but the hitter stays forward, what happens then?

A skater that is forced out of bounds by an opponent must come back in behind the opponent that forced her/him out and anyone that was in front her/him when she/he went out of bounds.

Otherwise cutting the track penalties will be assessed.

What said Joe, padawan.

To be trusted with this one your instincts are.

(This is why you will see the Jammer get knocked OOB, then the opponent and maybe another will rush toward the back of the engagement zone. Also remember that CTT penalties can be earned against one's own teammates, not just opponents.)
You will bout as you practice.
