Out of Play Blocking
« on: October 14, 2012, 07:04:43 pm »
Today at our scrimmage practice I was front IPR, a position I'll have at a bout in fourteen days, so I thought I'd get this right.

Red jammer came through the pack, one black blocker chased her. Right after exiting the engagement zone, the black blocker position blocked the red jammer, and a few seconds after she hit her out of bounds. I called a Out of Play block - major on the black blocker.

Now, as this happened fast, I had never raised my hand as a warning.
[rule]6.10.6 Out of Play skaters will be warned to re-enter the Engagement Zone and will be penalized if they do not immediately attempt to return to Engagement Zone[/rule]

The head coach in our league and I discussed this right after the jam. We aren't sure at all what might be the correct answer here, so we're asking you guys.
Is it correct to give a major when you haven't given the warning, or not?

at the very start of the out of play section:

[rule]6.10.1 - A skater who is more than twenty (20) feet in front of or behind the pack may receive an out of play warning by a referee; however, a referee is not required to issue a warning prior to giving a penalty. Issuing penalties takes priority over issuing warnings. A warning does not have to be issued in order for a penalty to be given (see ).[/rule]

the exception to this is a failure to re-enter, you can not penalise a skater for staying OOP if you haven't told her she is OOP.
However an OOP block is an OOP block even if we haven't been able to give the OOP warning.

Based on your description, there probably should have been a minor oop for the positional block, followed by a major for an oop block that forced the jammer out of bounds.

Edit: Fixed an autocorrect error

Major, just to clarify Im training my crew correctly. That minor positional penalty would be based on an impact? If the jammer had to adjust her skating as a result of the blockers position?

Yes it would be. It could be a major penalty, I assumed the impact in your scenario.
