Build Out Line 2016

 

The build out line is used to promote playing the ball out of the back 

 

 

 

in an unpressured setting.

       
   

When the goalkeeper has the ball, either during play or from a goal kick, 

   

the opposing team should move behind the build out line.

   
   

Once the opposing team is behind the build out line, the goalkeeper 

 
   

can pass or throw/roll the ballot a teammate (no punting).

 
   

After the ball has been put into play by the goalkeeper, 

   
   

the opposing team can cross the build out line and play resumes as normal.

Penalty Area

 

The Penalty Area: A penalty area is defined at each end of the field as follows:  

   

Two lines are drawn at right angles to the goal line, ten (10) yards from the 

   

center of the goal. These lines extend into the field of play for a distance of 

   

of ten (10) yards and are joined by a line drawn parallel with the goal line. The

   

area bounded by these lines and the goal line is the penalty area. Within

   

each penalty area a penalty mark is made seven (7) yards from the midpoint

   

between the goalposts and equidistant to them. An arc of a circle with a radius

   

of  eight (8) yards from each penalty mark is drawn outside the penalty area.

Goal Kick            

 

Conform to FIFA.  In the past the team takin the goal kick could not touch  

(New for 2019-20)

 

the ball until it had left the penalty area.  Now a player from the team in  

   

possession may reside in or enter the penalty area and touch the ball as 

   

soon as it is in play.  For the ball to be considered in play, it must have been

   

kicked and clearly moves This change is meant to speed up the play of the 

   

game.   Does this change the buildout line?  No, the spirit of the build out line

   

is still in effectin that players on the team not in possession must move 

   

behind the buildout line until the ball is considered in play.  Players for the 

   

team in possession of the goal kick may choose to  position themselves 

   

inside the penalty area.  If a team chooses to take a goal kick or free kick  

   

quickly they are doing so at their own risk as the normal build out rules still apply.
