    You are the Jammer Referee that has been assigned to the Red Team.  Red Jammer #241 has lined up at the Jammer line and the Penalty Tracker has informed you that she currently has 3 minors. As Red Jammer #241  is making her way through the pack on her initial pass, Red Jammer slams into the back of Red Blocker #45 knocking her down to the floor. Now there is just Blue Blocker #390 at the front of the pack that  Red Jammer #241 needs to pass to become Lead Jammer. Red Jammer #241 uses her bent elbow to hook into the ribs of Blue Blocker #390 and then pulls herself forward with her elbow.  By passing Blue Blocker #390, Red Jammer #241 is the first jammer through the pack. Which of the following handsignals would be appropriate for this scenario?
    • A. 
    • B. 
    • C. 
    • D. 
  • 12.

    • A. 

      Signal the forearm penalty first. If the jammer falls back into the pack, she will have to make it through the pack legally again if she hopes to gain Lead Jammer status

      Signal Lead Jammer first and then signal the forearm penalty using deliberate and distinct signals

      As rapidly as possible, signal the forearm penalty and signal Lead Jammer simultaneously

    The Black Team is at the front of the pack and has set the pace of the pack.  The White Team has formed a pace line on the inside line maintaining pack speed. You can hear the White Pivot order her team to slow their speed and immediately see the Black Team pull ahead as the White team drifts back.  The Inside Pack Referee calls a "No Pack" and you see that the skater resonsible for destroying the pack was White Block #1498.  You blow your whistle and say "White 1-4-9-8 Destruction of the Pack" while demonstrating what sequence of hand signals?
    • A. 
    • B. 
    • C.

      None of the above

    The Yellow team and the Red Team are lining up to start the Jam.  The Red Team have all taken a knee directly in front of the Jammer Line.  You are an Outside Pack Referee that has taken position next to the Jam Line so you have an excellent view of Red Blocker #866 whose right skate is actually lying all the way across the Jam Line extending to the other side (next to the jammers.) The first whistle blows, a no-pack is called and the second whistle blows.  Red Blocker #866 stands up and begins skating forward.  What is the appropiate hand signal that would be signaled with the above situation?
    • A. 
    • B. 
    • C. 
    • D.

    You are the Jammer Referee that has been assigned to the White Team.
