VIOLATIONS


If the offensive team has possession and a player enters the crease the offi cial will blow the whistle and award the ball to the defensive team outside the box at goal line extended.


If the offensive team enters the crease during a loose ball it can be a “play-on” situation.


If the offense enters the crease while the defense has possession outside the crease, the offi cial throws a fl ag creating a slow whistle situation. This is a 30-second penalty upon loss of possession and a free clear.


If a defensive player (including the goalie) enters the crease with the ball from outside of the crease the offi cial will blow whistle and possession changes.
