13 Game Protocol - 13.11 Dead Ball


When a thrown ball comes to rest in the Team Area of the defending team, without a defending player touching it, this will be called a ‘Dead Ball’. The referee will blow the whistle and call “dead ball.” The ball will be given to the defending team by an official as per rule 13.5. A “dead ball” will also be called if the thrown ball hits the goal post/crossbar without touching a defending player and comes to rest in either the Team Area or first half of the Neutral Area. The whistle will not be blown until the ball has completely stopped its motion.
