Illegally Preserving In-Bounds / Upright Position

The WFTDA Rules Committee is currently conducting a beta test. This test is open to any league playing by The Rules of Flat Track Roller Derby.

Beta Test Name: Illegally Preserving In-Bounds / Upright Position

Beta Test Dates: June 20, 2019 – July 31, 2019

Beta Test Scope: The aim of this beta test is to assess the outcomes of changing the Illegal Blocking Zone impact spectrum.  This is an informal beta test being conducted on a limited basis.

Test Scenario A defines “maintaining an in-bounds position” as significant impact, warranting a penalty if this outcome is the result of an illegal action.

Test Scenario B defines both “maintaining an in-bounds position” and “maintaining an upright position” as significant impact, warranting a penalty if either outcome is the result of an illegal action.
