4.3.3.2.3 Any skater who re-enters the Engagement Zone in an illegal manner, such as lapping the pack or allowing the pack to lap her after a fall, is subject to penalties (see Section 6.10.15 and Section 6.10.16).

Following in the wake of last week’s rules about reentering the engagement zone legally, today’s rule explains what I have already mentioned a few times in the explanations last week, that any skater who reenters the engagement illegally will be penalized appropriately. 6.10.15 is a penalty for a skater who leaves the engagement zone from the rear and reenters from the front, having been lapped by the pack. 6.10.16 is a penalty for a skater who leaves the engagement zone from the front and reenters from the rear, having lapped the pack. Both of these penalties are minor Out Of Play penalties.
