Clarification on Exiting the Track
« on: May 26, 2017, 02:16:46 pm »
From the WFTDA Rules committee.  Not NDA

Glossary

Leaving the Track
(Penalty Enforcement) Exiting the track to the outside or the inside, corresponding to the location of the Penalty Box.

Casebook

Scenario C4.4.x
Red Jammer is skating at the front of the Pack, close to the inside track boundary, when they are assessed a penalty. Red Jammer takes themself out of bounds to the inside of the track, and pauses to allow the Pack to skate past them. When their path is clear, Red Jammer skates across to the outside of the track, and then continues around toward the Penalty Box.

Outcome
No additional penalty.

Rationale
Red Jammer momentarily entered the infield in order to remove themself from play. At the first safe and legal opportunity, they left the track to the outside without significantly reducing the distance they needed to skate to reach the Penalty Box. No additional penalty is warranted.

Keep In Mind
Skaters remain liable for additional penalties related to safety and must not interfere with Officials performing their duties.

Scenario C4.4.X
Red Pivot is skating along the straightaway opposite the Pivot and Jammer lines, close to the inside track boundary. They are assessed a penalty and take themself out of bounds to the inside of the track. Red Pivot then skates across the infield and the straightaway with the Pivot and Jammer lines to enter the Penalty Box.

Outcome
Red Pivot is assessed an additional penalty.

Rationale
In this scenario, the Penalty Box is located on the outside of the track; hence, Red Pivot was required to leave the track to the outside from where they were assessed their penalty. Skating across the infield has significantly reduced the distance they needed to skate to reach the Penalty Box.
I'm better at remembering "Smasher" is me than "Adam."
