Can someone who uses a wheelchair perform duties as a non-skating official? What about bench staff using a knee scooter?

Persons using medical apparatuses such as knee scooters or wheelchairs are allowed to participate in designated bench areas.

  • Bench staff designated as Alternates may travel in and out of other zones as applicable when active game play has stopped.
  • Team benches and Non-Skating Officials using a medical apparatus may be located in the infield (Zone A) in an area that is clearly demarcated (as per section 2.3 in the Risk Management Guidelines).
