Thank you everyone for getting in your Payments for the Season!
Weekly Rule Highlight
Only 2 players of each team are allowed to occupy any space within each 2 meter area (see 15.8 and 15.9 of the Regulations). So, also means that the extended arms of the 3rd team member into the 2 meter area (e.g. to grab or tap the ball) counts as a violation of this rule.
If it was a defensive foul, and the attacking team was in possession of the ball, the attacking player with the ball at the time of the foul must choose between taking the free throw either from the spot he/she was in at the time, or on the 2 meter line directly in front of goal (the player should indicate this last one to the umpire, or Play On may be called). If the attacking team was not in possession of the ball, then the free throw must always be taken on the 2 meter line directly in front of the goal by the attacking player nearest to the ball at the time of the foul.
If it was an attacking foul, then the ball goes to the defensive player nearest the ball at the time of the foul who must take the free throw from the 2 meter line, directly in front of the basket (see 14.3.2 of the Regulations). The umpires usually allow the free throw to be taken anywhere in the 2 meter area, but note that the ball may be called back in case of an unfair advantage.
