When the whistle sounds to start play, the player in the wing areas shall be released. All other players are confined to their areas until a player of either team has gained possession of the ball, the ball goes out of bounds, the ball crosses the defensive-area line, a whistle stops play for a time-serving foul or a whistle restarts play after a non-time-serving foul; when any of these events occur, the faceoff has ended.


4.4.3 - DURING THE FACEOFF


In all penalty situations, there must be four players in the defensive area and three players in the offensive area. When a team has three players in the penalty area, a player may come out of his defensive area to take the faceoff but must remain onside.


4.6 - OUT OF BOUNDS AND BALL POSSESSION


Play shall be stopped immediately when the ball goes out of bounds. On a shot that goes out of bounds, possession is awarded to the team of the in-bounds player closest to location of the ball when it went out. When the ball goes out of bounds, for any other reason other than a shot, it is awarded to the team that did not touch the ball last.


4.7 - BALL CAUGHT IN CROSS OR EQUIPMENT


If at any point the ball becomes stuck in a players crosse the play shall stop immediately and award the ball to the opposing team.


Note: Neither situation above applies to a designated goalkeeper if he is within his goal-crease area at the time the ball becomes stuck. In this case, a defensive player shall be awarded the ball laterally outside the goal area.


4.8 - GOAL SCORED


A goal is scored when a loose ball passes completely over the goal line and into the goal.


4.8.1 - GOAL NOT SCORED (a) When the ball crosses the goal line, after the time of a period has expired (b) A player from the attacking team has committed a foul (c) the goal scorer stick is found to be illegal
