3 on 3 rules Three skaters and a goalie from each team are allowed on the ice at one time. A buzzer will sound every 1 minute which will signal a line change for each team. The player who has the ring when the buzzer sounds will leave the ring in that area of the rink, and go to their bench. The players coming on to the ice will try to reach the ring before the other team’s players. None of the players are restricted to a defensive or offensive zone and can go anywhere on the ice surface they choose to. The games will be officiated and normal Ringette playing rules will be applied. If a player commits a penalty, a penalty shot will be awarded to the player who the penalty was committed against. The player who took the penalty will chase and try to check the player taking the penalty shot.
If two goalies (one per team) then goalies will switch sides every 10 to 15 minutes. If three goalies then two will start. Goalie on the bench will switch with one goalie on the second buzzer. Then that goalie will switch with the other goalie on the next buzzer. And so on. If four goalies then two will be assigned to each team and one will start for each team. Goalies will switch on each buzzer. Goalies will then switch teams at half time.
Each bench requires one parent to open the door to let the kids off the ice and one to let them on. We also require someone to hit the buzzer every minute and stop the clock on penalty shots.
