6.13.24 A skater, after addressing mid jam equipment malfunction, re-entering the track in front of more than one pack skater.

Today’s rule is an Illegal Procedure major penalty. Much like yesterday’s rule, it is a penalty for illegal reentry to the track. Even though it seems like this would be a Cutting rule, penalties for Cutting are issued for reentering in front of in play skaters while illegal reentry is penalized for reentering in front of pack skaters. There is, of course, specifics to when illegal reentry penalties are issued, such as this rule, which is issued for illegal reentry after addressing mid jam equipment malfunction. If a skater leaves to the track to address an equipment malfunction during a jam and returns to the track in front of more than one pack skater, she will receive a major penalty.
