Collecting the ball in an offside area.

Rule:  9.7 OFFSIDE

(i) A player is offside when the player enters a court area not designated for that player’s position. This applies whether the player has contact with the ball or not.

Sanction: Free pass.

This player – can’t collect the ball from an offside area.

Sanction must be a Free Pass in the Centre Third.  Your teammates need to collect the ball and throw it to you so you can take the Free Pass in the Goal Third where you as GK are allowed to play.

The WA is not allowed according to rule 9.7 to collect the ball from inside the goal circle to take the sanction outside the goal circle.  The shooters need to give the ball to her in order to set the sanction outside the goal circle.

Sanction: Free pass (inside the Goal Circle – WA offside)

(ii) A player may reach across and pick up a ball from an offside area or lean on the ball in an offside area, provided the player makes no physical contact with the ground in that area.

Scenario to a Short Pass

Two players from the same team catching the ball “simultaneously”.

You can still have two players from same team catch the ball one before the other, as long as the 2nd player to catch the ball removes their hands then this would not be a short pass, however if the first player removed their hands and allowed the 2nd player to have the ball this would be a short pass.

Rule 9.5 Passing Distance

(ii) If two players from the same team gain possession of the ball in
quick succession, the second player’s hands must be removed or it
will be deemed to be a short pass.
Sanction: Free pass

Umpire calls:  Short Pass – Free Pass

Footwork – Dragging.

SCANNING IS IMPORTANT

Vision and Scanning are important to see if a player drags the landed foot.  Try to scan back to the player with the ball upon release of the ball.
