3. If both teams win a set , they will play "one against
the keeper" . This means that each team selects 3

score still is even after 3 players each , both teams
will continue untill one of them wins .

touching the ground) or try to score him/herself
(=an extra point) within 3 seconds after
receiving the ball .

or the player , the attack is over .
The defending keeper is allowed to leave his/her
goal area and to return at any time as long he/she is
not in possession of the ball . If he/she commits
a foul on the attacking player , a 6-m throw has to be
awarded to the attacking team (also an extra point)
6. Substitutions can be made during the whole time .

The goalkeeper has to enter the field only over the
side line in his/her own goal area . He/she can leave
over the side line of his/her team substitution side or
over the side line in his/her goal area .
A player who makes an error regarding the rules
considering the substitutions , has to be suspended .
The game has to be started again by a free throw
or a 6-m throw , regarding the situation .

that area still holding the ball .
