The rules of water polo are the rules and regulations which cover the play, procedure, equipment and officiating of water polo. These rules are similar throughout the world, although slight variations do occur regionally and depending on the governing body. Senior games consist of seven players from each team six field players and a goalkeeper that are allowed in the playing area of the pool during gameplay.
FINA reduced the of players in U20 and younger competitions that they sanction to six 5 field players and a goalkeeper in If a player commits an exclusion major foul, then that team will play with one player fewer until the player is allowed to re-enter typically 20 seconds. If a player commits a particularly violent act, such as striking a player, then the referee may al a brutality foul, in which case that team is required to play with one fewer player in the water for 4 minutes, besides the culprit being ejected [ i. Plus, the culprit may not be allowed to compete in a given of future games depending on the governing body.
Players may be substituted in and out after goals, during Womens water polo dirty play, between quarters, and after injuries. When play is stopped, they may enter or exit anywhere. If at any time during play a team has more players in the pool than they are allowed, a penalty is given to the opposing team. If a team starts with less than six outfield players, the referee may yellow card the coach for allowing it to happen and give a major foul to the opposition on 6 metres, if the 6th player then s the game illegally.
A variation is Beach water polo, which has four players including the goal keeper, and a smaller field, and some other differing rules. In practice, one team usually wears dark caps and the other white usually white for the home team, and dark for the away team for FINA. Teams may choose to wear different cap colors e.
For instance, Australia's women's water polo team wears green caps. The water polo cap is used to protect the players' he and ears, and the s on them make them identifiable from afar, especially by the referee s. Both goalies wear red or red striped caps.
The game is divided into four periods; the length depends on the level of play. There is no overtime in international water polo, and games proceed to a shootout if a victor is required. At the collegiate level there are two straight 3-minute periods; and if still tied, multiple 3-minute golden goal overtime periods thereafter. Lower levels of play have different overtime rules depending on the organization. The game clock is stopped when the ball is not in play between a foul being committed and the free throw being taken, and between a goal being scored and the restart.
As a result, the average quarter lasts around 12 minutes of real time. A team may not have possession of the ball for longer than 30 seconds  without shooting for the goal unless an opponent commits an ejection foul. After 30 seconds, possession passes to the other team, and the shot-clock is reset. The clock is also reset for 30 seconds after a goal or neutral throw, or penalty in which possession is exchanged. However, if a team shoots the ball within the allotted time, and regains control of the ball e.
It is also reset for 20 seconds Womens water polo dirty play a major exclusion foul, corner throw, or rebound from a penalty throw if the attacking team retain possession. Minimum water depth must be least 1. The goals are 3 m 9 ft The middle of the pool is deated by a white line. Beforethe pool was divided by 7 and 4 meter lines distance out from the goal line. This has been merged into one 5 meter line since the — season, and '6 meter' line since the — season. The 6 meter line is marked by a yellow line.
It was brought in by FINA inand relates Womens water polo dirty play the method of taking a free throw after an ordinary or exclusion foul. The '5 meter' line is where penalties are shot and it is deated by a red line.
The '2 meter' line is deated with a red line; and no player of the attacking team can receive a ball inside this zone. Those are being used since the Summer Olympics in Water polo balls are generally yellow and of varying size and weight for juniors, women and men. In a game, if the ball goes out of the playing area or hits the edge of the pool then falls back in to the watera free throw is given to the team that did not touch the ball last before it went out of play.
Also, the referee should not pick up the ball when it is at the side of the pool during a break in play, and hand it to the attacking team - as this can lead to an advantage to that team. In an all deep water pool, the home team starts on the left side looking across the pool from the scoring table.
The teams change ends at halftime. In a pool with a shallow end, there is a toss of a coin to decide which team starts on which side. The teams change ends at the end of each quarter.
At the start of each period and after every score, teams line up on their own goal line. The most common formation is for three players to go each side of the goal, while the goalkeeper stays in the goal. If the ball is to be thrown into the center of the pool, the sprinter will often start in the goal, while the goalkeeper starts either in the goal as well, or to one side of the goal.
At the referee's whistle, both teams swim to midpoint of the field known as the 'sprint' or the 'swim-off' as the referee drops the ball on to the water. Depending on the rules being played, this is either on the referee's side of the pool or in the center.
In international competitions the ball is normally placed in the middle of the pool and is supported with a floating ring. The first team to recover the ball becomes the attacker until a goal is scored or the defenders recover the ball. Exceptionally, a foul may be given before either team reaches the ball.
This usually occurs when a player uses the side to assist themselves gain a speed advantage i. In such scenarios, the non-offending team receives a free throw from the halfway line. Thus it will either occur 2, 4 or 6 times in a match, depending on whether the match is in halves, quarters or in quarters and extends to extra time.
The referee s should check the players nails before the start of play to prevent scratching. Goggles and jewellery are not normally allowed. Players can move the ball by throwing it to a teammate or swimming with the ball in front of them. Players are not permitted to push the ball underwater in order to keep it Womens water polo dirty play an opponent, or push or hold an opposing player unless that player is holding the ball.
If a player does push the ball underwater when it is in their possession, this is called 'ball under' and will result in a 'turnover' which means the offending player has to hand the ball over to the other team. It does not matter if the player holding the ball underwater is forced to do so by an opponent.
The foul is still given against them. Water polo is an intensely aggressive sport, so fouls are very common and result in a free throw during which the player cannot shoot at the goal unless outside the 6 meter line. If a foul is called outside the 6 meter line, the player may either shoot in one movement, ie without fakingpass or continue swimming with the ball. A goal is scored if the ball completely passes between the goal posts and is underneath the crossbar.
If the shot goes outside the goal and touches the rope, or onto the deck outside the field of playa goal throw to the defence occurs, and the clock is reset to 30 seconds. This has to be taken without delay time limit not specified in rules. If the goalie, Womens water polo dirty play, is the last to touch the ball before it goes out of play behind the goal line, or if a defender purposely sends the ball out, then the offense receives the ball for a 'corner throw' on the two meter line.
From a corner, which also has to be taken without delay again time limit not specified in the rulesthe player can swim with the ball, shoot at goal or pass. When the goalie blocks a shot, the defense may gain control of the ball, and make a long pass to a teammate who stayed on his offensive end of the pool when the rest of his team was defending.
This is called cherry-picking or seagulling. This can occur as there is no offside rule in water polo, unlike football soccer. So a defending player can 'hang around' the opposition's goal. The 'own goal' concept also does not exist in water polo like football soccer. But they do occur rarely and then the goal is awarded to the attacking player that last touched the ball. After a goal is scored, the teams may line up anywhere within their own half of the pool.
In practice, this is usually near the center of the pool. Play s when the referee als for play to restart and the team not scoring the goal puts the ball in to play by passing it backwards to a teammate. FINA Water polo rules allow for two timeouts for each team in a match. They can be taken in the same period. If the game goes into overtime, each team is allowed one timeout for the duration of overtime.
At 60 seconds, the ball is thrown to the goalkeeper usually on the halfway line, who can play the ball when another single long whistle is blown. A substitute can enter the pool from any place during the intervals between quarters, after a goal has been scored, during a timeout and to replace an injured player; but not after a penalty. If a substitution is made during play, the head of the player leaving should be visible in the re-entry area, before the player entering the pool can go under the rope.
Neither can lift the rope. Water polo referees utilize red and yellow cards when handling bench conduct. A verbal warning may be issued depending on the severity of the infraction. A yellow card may be issued at any point in the game and can be issued via a "walking yellow" in which the referee pulls a yellow card out without stopping live play. Following the issuance of a "walking yellow", at the next stop of play, the referee may pull the ball out to inform the table and partner referee of the issuance of that card.
A red card can be issued to any team personnel head and assistant coaches, team managers, players, and other officials with the team or supporters.
Following the issuance of a red card, the individual must leave the pool area, and have no further contact with the game by any method. Red cards carry at least a one-game suspension for the offender with a report being filed to the appropriate governing authority.
A red card is also given to players acquiring their second yellow card. Ordinary fouls occur when a player impedes or otherwise prevents the free movement of an opponent who is not holding the ball, but has it in or near their possession. The most common is when a player reaches over the shoulder of an opponent in order to knock the ball away while in the process hindering the opponent.
Offensive players may be called for a foul by pushing off a defender to provide space for a pass or shot. The referee indicates the foul with one short whistle blow and points one hand in the direction of the attacking team standing roughly in line with the position of the foulwho retain possession.
The attacker must make a free pass without undue delay time period not specified in the rules to another offensive player. If the foul has been committed outside the 6 meter line, the offensive player can attempt a direct shot on goal, but the shot must be taken immediately and in one continuous motion i. If the offensive player fakes a shot and then shoots the ball, it is a turnover. The defender usually the one that has conceded the foul has to back off a distance not specified in the rules, but usually taken to be 1.
In other words, they cannot simply hold their ground to block the offensive player. The defender, at a reasonable distance, can raise their arm to compete at the free throw. The throw and all throws after infringements has to be taken without delay. The maximum time period for this also not stated in the rules is usually taken to be about 3 seconds. If the same defender repeatedly makes minor fouls, referees will exclude that player for 30 seconds. To avoid an ejection, the "hole" centre defender may foul twice, and then have a wing defender switch with him so that the defense can continue to foul the "hole man" centre forward without provoking an exclusion foul.
The rule was altered to allow repeated fouls without exclusions, but is often still enforced by referees. There are quite a few other infringements that lead to an ordinary foul, including standing if there is a shallow end, delaying taking a throw free, goal or cornertaking a penalty throw incorrectly, touching the ball with two hands if not the goalkeepersimulating being fouled, time-wasting, and being within two metres of the goal. Major fouls exclusion and penalty fouls are committed when the defensive player "holds especially with two handssinks or pulls back" a key phrase in water polo the offensive player.
This includes swimming on Womens water polo dirty play other player's legs or back, stopping the other player from swimming, or otherwise preventing the offensive player from preserving his advantage. A referee als a major foul by two short whistle bursts, then a long burst, and indicates that the player must leave the field of play and move to the penalty area for twenty seconds. The referee will first point to the player who commits the foul and will blow the whistle, then they will point to the ejection Womens water polo dirty play and blow the whistle again.
The player must move to their re-entry area without impacting the natural game play and in reasonable time or a penalty is given. A player that has been ejected thrice must sit out the rest of the match. A brutality foul is called when a player kicks or strikes an opponent or official with malicious intent.Womens water polo dirty play
