Rules Question

Post by Sampson » Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:59 pm

Hey all,

Basically, I appreciate that during a time out when the ball is still in play, a player cannot "practice" (which I assume means passing the ball between men or advancing the ball in anyway). But if a goal has been scored and a time out has been taken between the goal being scored and the ball being served for the next point, can a player practice?

A one word answer will suffice (assuming it's yes or no, you pernickety so-and-sos).

You are only allowed to practice between games, not between points or during time-outs.

Practice effectively means moving the ball in any way using the player figures.

Practice is defined as moving the ball from one player figure to another or shooting the ball.

Penalty is loss of possession followed by a technical foul.

So I could knock the ball around with a single man as long as it doesn't go to another player figure or shoot at the goal? 1 man tictacs here I come!

What about if you practice defending during a timeout or between balls?

Good question Joe. According to the rules it's OK, but it also says that it's at the discretion of the referee, so beware.

Oh yeah. You were no angel in that match either. What Rich was doing was a question of a possible illegal serve not illegal practice. The issue there was that after saying 'Ready' he sometimes moved the ball fractionally before getting your response 'Ready'. It was confusing because on most occasions you did reply 'Ready' once he started moving the ball, implying that you were happy with the serve, so I let play continue, although I did warn him about it more than once. On reflection I think I should have called it every time after the first warning, irrespective of your reply. Next time I will because I know what to look for now.
