Call Off and Points
« on: August 21, 2016, 07:00:12 pm »
What is everyone's preferred method of calling and signaling the end of a jam when your jammer calls it as LJ?  I know some JR's (most that I've seen/worked with), while calling "whistling" the jam signals the call off with their right hand while holding up the score with their left (after the first set of 4).  Others I see (fewer) uses both hands while whistling and signaling the call off then holds up the score.  Also, is one more correct then the other?

There's nothing in the SP that says "The jam call off signal is two hands, UNLESS you're the lead jam ref."  I use both hands to call it, then put the score back up.  The only drawback I can see is that you might confuse a less experienced SK, but that doesn't justify ignoring the SP to my way of thinking.

One thing I HAVE taken to doing (that I stole from Deuce Willis), is that if it's potentially ambiguous whether or not my jammer has cleared the engagement zone to start a new pass, I'll show that to my SK.  If she has indeed started a new pass, I'll hold the points as usual with my left hand, and make an "O" with my right hand in the center of my chest to indicate that there should be another 0 on the score sheet for the new pass that just started.
I'm better at remembering "Smasher" is me than "Adam."

As Adam said, I don't think any method is necessarily more correct. Personally I tend to do the call-off handsignal with both hands during the first set of four whistles, then for the echoes I'll show the points while repeating the call-off signal with one hand. Of course, if I need to think for a second on the score I won't hold it up until later :).

Either way holding up score before the fourth whistle has sounded seems a bit odd, since the jam isn't over yet at that point.

Except of course for the extremely common case of the jammer calling after a scoring pass, so points are already up.

Sorry, my bad I meant after the first set of four but before the end of the third set of 3.  Most JR's i've seen do it that way.  If you happened to have purchased last weekends wftda.tv playoff coverage this weekend you can go to the playback.  You will notice most JR's do it that way.
