KEEPING THE CENTRE PASS
Rule 3.1.6 (iii) Page 10
The Umpire uses a ring or band on her hand/wrist to remember
which team has the next centre pass.
At the start of the game, both umpires have the ring or band on the hand/wrist
towards the end in which play is to be directed.
After each goal is scored, the Umpire changes the ring or band to the other hand. The Centre
Pass is then given to the team having the Goal End the Umpire’s ring or band is on.
NOTE: AT THE END OF QUARTERS DO NOT CHANGE RING or BAND,
IT REMAINS ON THE SAME HAND.
After quarter time, the Centre Pass is given to the Team having the goal end the
Umpire’s ring or band is on.
Terminology: Both Umpires should signal the direction of the next Centre Pass as soon as a Goal is scored. The
Umpire in whose end the Goal was scored should also call the club name of the team when running back to the Centre
Third.
POSITIONING
Rule 3.1.6 (vii) Page 11
The Umpire’s position is of great importance for correct decision making.
The Umpire MUST be in the BEST position to SEE WIDE and to SEE THROUGH.
The important word is ‘SEEING’ as players will lose confidence in umpires
who are clearly guessing!
Below are some examples of possible positioning. It shows the movement of players and the
Umpire from the Centre Pass into the Goal Circle.

PLAYING THE BALL
Rule 13 Page 29
It is most important to watch the WHOLE PLAYER.
Remember a player gaining possession of the ball must not strike the ball with a fist; fall on the
ball to get it; attempt to get the ball while lying sitting or kneeling on the ground. A player cannot
throw the ball while lying, sitting or kneeling on the ground. A player must not use the goal post as
a means of regaining balance, as a support in recovering the ball going out of Court or in any other
way for any other purpose and cannot deliberately kick the ball.

TIMING
Rule 13.3 Page 31

This means that a player cannot hold onto the ball for three seconds.
Terminology for the infringement is HELD BALL with hand signal (arm raised high in the air and 3 fingers extended),
and the Penalty is a FREE PASS to the non-offending team where the infringement occurred.
The Penalty for HELD BALL is ______________________________________
REPLAYED BALL
Rule 13.4 Page 31

OVER A THIRD
Rule 13.6.2 Page 32
The ball may not be thrown over a complete third of the court without
being touched by a player.
In the court diagram below mark X where the penalty is awarded, if the ball is thrown completely
over a third without being touched, and write the penalty awarded next to the X.
FOOTWORK
Rule 14 Page 33
Good umpires know the landed foot every time the ball is caught so they can rule correctly
if stepping or obstruction occurs. It is important for you to drop your eyes downwards every time
a player lands with the ball to check how they have landed.
14.1
When a player catches the ball with one foot grounded, or jumps to catch the ball and lands on one
foot, we call this foot the landed foot. The player can then pivot around on this landed foot, then step
onto the other foot, lift the landed foot and then must pass the ball before the landed foot is put back
on the ground.
When a player catches the ball with one foot grounded, or jumps to catch the ball and lands on one
foot, we call this foot the landed foot. She can jump from the landed foot onto the other foot and
then jump again but must throw the ball before putting either foot back on the ground.
14.2
When a player catches the ball with both feet grounded, or jumps to catch the ball and lands on both
feet at the same time, as soon as they lift one foot off the ground the other foot left on the ground we
call the landed foot. Then the same rules apply as if the player landed on one foot.
14.3
A player with the ball may not drag or slide the landing foot along the ground. A player with the ball
may not hop on either foot. A player with the ball may not jump from both feet and land on both feet
unless the ball is released before landing.
Terminology for the footwork infringement is STEPPING, and the penalty is a FREE PASS awarded to the
non-offending team where the infringement occurred. A hand signal, moving hands up and down in front
of the body is given.
A player who makes a footwork infringement is said to have ________________________

SCORING A GOAL
Rule 15 Page 35
A goal is scored when the ball is thrown or batted over and completely through the goal ring,
only by the Goal Shooter or the Goal Attack from any spot within the goal circle including
the lines bounding the goal circle.
The umpire must blow the whistle for “TIME” the moment they hear the signal for the end of the
quarter or game. This is very important as the game ends only on the umpires’ whistle.
If the whistle for “TIME” is blown
after a Penalty Pass or Shot is
awarded, what would the umpire’s
decision be?
____________________________
____________________________
OBSTRUCTION
Rule 16 Page 36
A player is obstructing if their arms are raised up
and they are standing within 90cm (3 feet)
of their opponent with or without the ball.
The distance is measured ON THE GROUND
from the LANDED FOOT of the player with
the ball and the NEARER FOOT of the
defending player.
If the defending player chooses to jump to intercept the ball from the CORRECT DISTANCE
(90cm) and lands within this distance and the attacking player still has possession of the ball,
obstruction may occur.
If the defending player is at the
correct distance (90cm) and
the attacking player steps in closer
then the defending player is not obstructing
and should NOT be penalised.
When the defending player is at the
correct distance (90cm) but has her hands
not over the ball but over the eyes of the
attacker then the defending player is
obstructing and should be penalised.
What is the Penalty for OBSTRUCTION?

CONTACT
Refer Rule 17 Page 39
No player may contact a player in the opposing team in such a way that it interferes with the
opponents movement either accidentally or deliberately, or any way that causes contact to occur.
Players expect the umpires to protect them from unnecessary contact by giving penalties.
Umpires who control this aspect of the game offer players a safer and more enjoyable game.
LEARN TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE between the brushes and bumping that does not interfere
with play, and between CONTEST and CONTACT.
A player is not allowed to • run into • push away (often elbow) • bump into • trip • hold • lean
• hit the ball out of opponent’s hands • push ball into an opponent • move into a player’s landing space
• position so close that the opponent can not move without contacting / can not shoot for goal
• “feel” to know where opponent is
The Penalty for CONTACT is _________________________________________________

TOSS UP
Rule 18.5 Page 45
List six reasons why an umpire decides to have a toss up
1. ______________________________________________________________________
2. ______________________________________________________________________
3. ______________________________________________________________________
4. ______________________________________________________________________
5. ______________________________________________________________________
6. ______________________________________________________________________
Players face each other, and their own goals, feet in any position
but nearer foot of each must be 90cm (3 feet) apart, arms straight
by their sides. They shall not move from that position until the
umpire’s whistle is blown.
Umpires release the ball midway between the two players
from just below the shoulder level of the shorter player’s
normal standing position. Hold the ball in the palm
of one hand, place it in position, flick the ball straight
upwards no more than 60cm high, as WHISTLE IS BLOWN.

An infringement occurs when a player or players makes a mistake.
A penalty is the price they pay for that mistake.

THROW IN
Rule 18.4 Page 44
The THROW IN is awarded to the team who did not touch the ball LAST before it went out of
court. The THROW IN is taken outside the Court behind the point where the ball crossed the line.
Umpires can assist players by telling them where to take the THROW IN. The player taking the
THROW IN must make sure that all other players are on the Court then takes up her position and
throws the ball within Three Seconds. The player cannot step on the line or onto the court whilst
passing the ball. If she does the THROW IN is given to the other team.
If the player taking the throw in infringes any rules then the penalty given by the umpire is
_________________________________________________________________
If a player defending a throw in obstructs or contacts the player taking the throw in then the umpire
awards a ______________________________________ on the court.

ADVANTAGE
TOSS UP
CONTACT – ARM
CONTACT – LEG
CONTACT – SHOULDER
OBSTRUCTION – ARMS ACROSS
OBSTRUCTION – ARMS AROUND
OBSTRUCTION – DISTANCE
Arm raised high as whistle is blown
Arm pointed in the direction of play
Semi-circular action of one arm
Semi-circular action of one arm
Hands close together in front of the body
Any 3 fingers held up high
Hands moving up and down
Arm across body and down
Palm of hand moved vertically upwards
Open hand hits arm
Open hand hits leg
Open hand hits shoulder
Both arms open wide
Both arms in front and around
Hands apart in front of body
If you have difficulty using hand signals, try using just one or two at first.
Also make some them a habit, e.g indicating which team has the next Centre Pass or at a Throw in
by pointing to that team’s goal end. Practice and gain confidence in using hand signals
to help control the games you are umpiring.
