Please review the information below. All coaches will be required to follow BIT policies at all times.
*The league is understanding of the fact that when a team faces a penalty kill their lines will change, forcing 1 player to sit each shift. This is not a BIT violation. The player that sits their shift, should go out the next shift to make up lost time. The player that serves the penalty is not expected to be given extra time to make up for their infraction.
Examples of BIT Violation
NOT examples of BIT
The NWHL has formed a BIT committee under the R&E Sector. This BIT committee is comprised of volunteer board members who will be asked to randomly attend no less than 4 games watching a variety of programs, levels, and divisions. They will report back on these games to the committee. They will also investigate BIT Incident reports and institute necessary suspensions. If the BIT committee witnesses a violation of BIT during game play, they can approach the bench and warn coaches or, if needed, remove the coach from the bench for the game.
