Ringette PEI requires all U14, U16/U19 & 18+ games to use the shot clock with U12 games recommended. A team must take a shot on the opponents net, or give up possession of the ring before the 30 second clock time expires. The Home team Manager (or delegate) is responsible for coordinating the pickup and return of shot clock remotes (or portable shot clocks), including any hand-offs required to other teams also using the same shot clock that day. Remotes kept at the arena are to be returned to the arena staff immediately following each block of games.
