5.1.1.4 It is legal to block players who are standing on the track.

While the rules require skaters to be moving, in a counterclockwise direction, when executing a block, the rules do not require skaters to be moving when getting blocked. Being stopped on the track does not make a skater out of play. So if a skater is in play and standing on the track, they may legally be hit.
