Examining the Interruption Rule: New e-Learning Module

Over the course of the last several seasons, different applications and scenarios involving the Interruption Rule at domestic and international competitions were observed. To help educate coaches, skaters, officials, and team leaders on the importance of this rule and its application, Skate Canada created an on-line module that is now ready to access. Many of the resources contained in this module were initially developed for a workshop presented at the 2017 Ice Summit in Ottawa. The on-line module includes the following:

  • Video of the Ice Summit workshop
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Summary document for coaches, officials, and team leaders
  • Video: various types of scenarios
