The General Rules 

Starting the Game:  The game commences with the first centre pass taken at the umpire's whistle.  The ball can be held for no longer than 3 seconds and must be touched within the centre third.  All players must be in the correct starting position obeying the footwork rule.  After each goal is scored, a new centre pass is taken alternatively by the two centre players.  The umpires whistle indicates the beginning and end of each quarter.

Contact:  A player cannot accidently or deliberately come into contact with another player in a way which impedes their play.  For example, pushing, charging, tripping, throwing the body against an opponent or using the ball to push or contact an opponent.  Players must not hold an opponent or keep their elbows against another player.

Obstruction:  A player with arms extended cannot defend a player with the ball, closer than 3 feet(0.9m).  This distance is measured from the first landed foot of the attacking player to the nearest foot of the defending player.  A player may stand closer to an opponent with the ball provided their arms are not extended, but a player may not use intimidating actions against an opponent with or without a ball.  If the attacking player lessens the distance in their throwing or shooting action, then the defending player is not considered to be obstructing, because it was the attacking player and not the defending player, who shortened the distance.

Held Ball:  A player must pass the ball or shoot for goal within three seconds of receiving the ball.

Over a Third: The ball cannot be thrown over a complete third without being touched by a player in that third.  The penalty pass is taken from the third where the player gained possession.

Offside:  Players must stay within their designated playing areas.  If a player goes offside, a free pass is awarded to the opposing team in the offside area.  If both players are in possession of the ball when they go offside, a toss up is given in their area of play.

Out of Court:  When the ball goes out of court, it is thrown in by the opponent of the team which was last to touch it.

Footwork (Stepping):  One foot landing - when a player lands on one foot, they may step with the other foot, lift the landing foot, but must throw the ball before re-grounding the lifted foot.  They may also use the landing foot as a pivoting foot, stepping in any direction with the other foot as many times as they wish.  A player cannot drag or slide the landing foot, or hop on either foot.  This will result in a free pass to the opposing team.

Two foot landing - if a player catches the ball and lands on both feet simultaneously, they may step in any direction with one foot, lift the other foot but must throw or shoot before re-grounding this foot.

Replayed Ball:  A player who has possession of the ball may not bounce the ball and re-gain possession of the ball.  After throwing the ball, a player cannot play it again until it is touched by another player, or rebounds off the goal post.  A player cannot roll, kick or fall on the ball, or pass the ball in any way while lying, sitting or kneeling on the ground.
