GAME PLAY OUT OF BOUNDS


WHAT IS IT? The official will stop play any time a loose ball or ball carrier


touches on-or-beyond a boundary line.


WHEN the ball touches the line, the ground outside the line, or a player touches the line, a player is in contact with the ground outside the line


FUNDAMENTALS


OUT OF BOUNDS Ball or player with the ball touches a boundary line or outside the boundary line.


TURNOVER The team that last touched the ball before it went out of bounds loses possession, unless it was


a shot. DEVELOPMENTAL


It is important to teach young players to start inside the boundary line on a restart as this is different from most other sports.


Play on prescribed regulation size field is preferred. Coaches and officials may also agree to play on any size field available.


Calling out of bounds in practice helps young players incorporate field awareness into their game.


SHOT When a shot goes out of bounds, the team whose player is nearest the ball, while inbounds, when it crosses the


line gains possession at that spot.


RESTART Opponent restarts with ball inside the boundary at the spot ball crossed line.


PLAY SAFE


On a restart, no player on either team may be within 5 yards of the person in possession of the ball.


Pushing an opponent from behind is illegal but legal pushes from the front or side may be used if opponent has the ball or is within 3 yards of a loose ball.


If called near the table area, official will move ball off the sideline and 3 yards into the field of play before play is resumed.


The goalkeeper is given a maximum of five seconds to reenter the crease on any restart.
