  • The ball must cross the transverse line before the team can take a shot for goal.

 

Scoring

  • A goal can be shot from within the Goal Zone for 1 point.

  • If a goal is shot from the area between the traverse line and the outside of the goal zone (known as the 3 pointer zone),
    3 points will be awarded.

  • All players will be able to shoot for goals, but only two players from the one team can be in the goal ring at the same time.

Diving and Dropped Ball
