V.- Infractions

  


In the case of an infraction, the ball shall be turned over to the defending team.

  1.  Premature Throw

    If a player throws the ball before the referee has given the "play"-command, the throw counts but can not score.


  2.  Step Over

    The throwing player must have part of his body touching the court at the point of release of the ball. If not, the throw counts but can not score. While in the act of orientation, a player may not be called for the infraction of stepping out of bounds.


  3.  Pass Out

    When in the process of passing the ball between team members, the ball goes out of bounds over the sideline, it will be considered as a loss of the team's ability to control the ball. Any time the ball hits an object above the court, it will also be considered as a loss of the team's ability to control the ball.


  4.  Ball Over

    If a ball is blocked by a defensive player and the ball rebounds over the centre line in the neutral zone, the ball shall be returned to the possession of the team that has thrown the ball. This rule also applies if the ball hits a goal post or cross bar and rolls back over the centre line. This rule does not apply to free throws and penalty throws.
