Rules and Regulations

Speed skating officials apply rules and regulations in the fulfillment of their roles in the sport. While the rules permit the official’s judgement in specified circumstances, when, where and how these judgements are to be exercised are specified in the rules of the sport. There is a hierarchy in these rules like in many other aspects of the sport. There are even rules which specify which set of rules to be used.

Generally, ISU rules govern international completions; Speed Skating Canada rules govern national and nationally sanctioned competitions in Canada as laid out in the Red Book and, where they are not in conflict with the other rules and regulations, there are also Branch (Saskatchewan Speed Skating) rules and regulations laid out in the Branch’s Blue Book.
