"HAND BALL" CALL
Common Soccer Misconceptions
Hand Ball (or "handling" as it's now officially known) is commonly misunderstood to be any contact of the ball to hand or arm, or any contact to the hand or arm that provides advantage to the offending team.
It is neither of these.
Instead, the question of if contact of the ball to the arm or hand is a foul is not is one of mere contact, but rather did the player deliberately make contact (or not avoid contact) with the ball with that area of the body? If the answer is yes (and the player isn't a goalkeeper in the penalty area), you have a foul; but if the referee believes the answer is no (even if it results in a goal!), then the answer must be no.
Here's the Proof:
FIFA's Laws of the Game, an excerpt from Law 12 (available at fifa.com):
12.9 DELIBERATE HANDLING
The offense known as "handling the ball" involves deliberate contact with the ball by a player's hand or arm (including fingertips, or outer shoulder). "Deliberate contact" means that the player could have avoided the touch but chose not to, that the player's arms were not in a normal playing position at the time, or that the player deliberately continued an initially accidental contact for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage. Moving hands or arms instinctively to protect the body when suddenly faced with a fast approaching ball does not constitute deliberate contact unless there is subsequent action to direct the ball once contact is made. Likewise, placing hands or arms to protect the body at a free kick or similar restart is not likely to produce an infringement unless there is subsequent action to direct or control the ball. The fact that a player may benefit from the ball contacting the hand does not transform the otherwise accidental event into an infringement.
1. YELLOW CARDS ARE ISSUED BEFORE A RED CARD AS A "FIRST WARNING" IF YOU WOULD
2. YELLOW CARDS DO "NOT" MEAN THAT THE PLAYER IS EJECTED FROM THE GAME AND SITS THE NEXT GAME!
3. IF A PLAYER OR COACH RECEIVES 2 YELLOWS IN ONE GAME THAT IS FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY BY A RED, THE PLAYER HAS TO LEAVE THE GAME – THE TEAM CANNOT SUBSTITUTE FOR THAT PLAYER AND HAS TO PLAY THE REMAINDER OF THAT HALF WITH ONE PERSON SHORT.( IF THE COACH RECEIVES A RED THE COACH HAS TO LEAVE THE FIELD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE GAME)
4. WHEN A RED CARD IS ISSUED –DEPENDING ON THE OFFENSE THE REF CAN RECOMMEND A MINIMUM OF (1) GAME SUSPENSION UP TO (3) GAMES.
5. IF A RED CARD WAS ISSUED FOR FIGHTING OR WORSE THE PLAYER OR COACH CAN BE SUSPENDED FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON.
GAME RESULTS REC
In order to encourage a friendlier environment during our matches, we will only be posting point differentials that will affect final standings. Future postings of scores will be limited to 3 goal differentials. In other words, games that show a 4-0 (or greater) result will be posted as 3-0.
Also, as an assist, please post scores in the Guestbook, and contact us on any errors.
Code of Ethics KHO
In order to maintain a civil atmosphere, we have adopted the attached Code of Ethics following FYSA standards. Though our soccer program is successful and enjoyed by all, small competitive incidents can ruin the atmosphere for everyone. We are here for the benefit of the children and the joy of soccer.
THE CODE OF ETHICS WILL BE ENFORCED - THANK YOU - KHO Director
