What is a hand ball?
12.9 DELIBERATE HANDLING
The offense known as "handling the ball" involves deliberate contact with the ball by a player's hand or arm (including fingertips, upper arm, or outer shoulder). "Deliberate contact" means that the player
could have avoided the touch but chose not to, that the player's arms were not in a normal playing position at the time, or that the player deliberately continued an initially accidental contact for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage. Moving hands or arms instinctively to protect the body when suddenly faced with a fast approaching ball does not constitute deliberate contact unless there is subsequent action to direct the ball once contact is made. Likewise, placing hands or arms to protect the body at a free kick or similar restart is not likely to produce an infringement unless there is subsequent action to direct or control the ball. The fact that a player may benefit from the ball contacting the hand does not transform the otherwise accidental event into an infringement.

When does the goalkeeper
have possession of the ball ?
12.16 GOALKEEPER POSSESSION OF THE BALL
The goalkeeper is considered to be in possession of the ball when the ball is held with both hands, held by trapping the ball between one hand and any surface (e.g., the ground, a goalpost, the goalkeeper’s
body), or holding the ball in the outstretched open palm. Once established, possession is maintained when the ball is held as described above, while bouncing the ball on the ground or throwing it into the air. Possession is given up if, after throwing the ball into the air, it is allowed to hit the ground. For purposes of determining goalkeeper possession, the “handling” includes contact with any part of the goalkeeper’s arm from the fingertips to the shoulder. While the ball is in the possession of the goalkeeper, it may not be challenged for or played by an opponent in any manner. An opponent who attempts to challenge for a ball in the possession of the goalkeeper may be considered to have committed a direct free kick foul. However, a ball controlled by the goalkeeper using means other than the hands is open to legal challenge by an opponent. The referee should consider the age and skill level of the players in evaluating goalkeeper possession and err on the side of safety.
What are those white boxes and
orange lines on the sidelines?
1 yard from the touchline is a white box. It can be from 1-2 yds deep, and is the width of the center circle (8-10 yards). Only the 2 coaches on the roster may coach, and must remain in this technical area (box) during the game. The substitute players are also allowed.
At the back of this technical area is a wide line (orange, maybe white) and extends from the top of one penalty area to the top of the other penalty area. The area behind this ORANGE line is for spectators. Spectators, umbrellas, tents, etc., must stay behind this line for the duration of the game. See Data Sheet.
This allows room for the players to play outside of the field, room for a proper throw-in, and for assistant referees to see the complete touchline, when the ball goes out of play, without any obstruction from spectators, coaches or substitutes.
Technical / Spectator Area Data Sheet
If it rains, do we play?
Your coach will contact you if you don't. If you are a U10 through U19 team, and playing on a R143 field, you will more than likely play, unless, there is thunder and lightning. Even with thunder & lightning, the game may only be suspended for a period of time. Keep checking our R143 FIELDS page for current status. The fields will be checked the morning of games and closures will be sent to coaches emails, & may also be updated on our R143 Fields Page.
