Timing jammer penalties questions
« on: April 21, 2014, 08:26:38 pm »
Scenario: timing jammers.  Green jammer in box serving penalty (seated). Blue jammer is on her way to the box.
Questions:
1) have green jammer stand  even though she is still in her first 10 seconds, because we expect her to be released within 10 seconds, when blue jammer (incoming) sits?
2) if green jammer stands on her own (without being told to stand), stop her time?

I suspect the answers are no, yes, but would like some input.

Thanks

You instruct the seated Jammer (any skater, actually) to stand when they have 10 seconds remaining on their time.

In the situation of a swap before that last ten, it is fine to release the Jammer from a seated position.

Do not anticipate, and tell them to stand early. Other things may happen.

If any skater stands before their final tens seconds, you should tell them their timing has stopped.
You will bout as you practice.

FN,

    I totally don't  understand what you are saying here.  In your second sentence it reads as if you are saying it's fine to release the jammer from a sitting position prior to 10 seconds remaining when you see the other jammer coming in.  In your third sentence it reads "to me" not to let them stand if they have more then 10 seconds remaining "Do not anticipate".

Hey Sharm,

IF there is actually a swap (second Jammer actually sits), it's cool to release the initial Jammer without first making them stand.
You will bout as you practice.

Sharm,
He confirmed my suspision 1) no. 2) yes.  In my original scenario: keep the green jammer seated until either the blue jammer sits, or green jammer's time reaches 10 seconds left.  If green jammer stands before you tell her to stand, or release her; stop her time.  It is OK to release a jammer from seated when the other jammer sits.

Edit: he already said that while I was typing.    Thanks Fnz.

That jammer would still be released when the second jammer sits, but the second jammer would sit for a shorter time than she would have if the first jammer had remained seated.

Exactly.  So in my situation saturday, I should have released the blue jammer after ~1 second rather than holding her for ~3.5 seconds.

Never thought of this! Good answer.
