How to properly set a pick

Setting a proper pick is something that if it’s not done properly it can cause a penalty. A pick is normally set on the defending centre once the defensive triangle has been set up. In order for a pick to be successful the ring carrier must push or move the defending centre into the already stationary pick.

The person setting the pick has to set their position early enough to declare their sport on the ice before the pick is used. The ring carrier skates up the side boards and then turns before the ringette line and skates directly at the defensive centre parallel to the ringette line pushing them back into the player setting the pick.
