Summary of Indoor Actionball Rules

Indoor Netball rules apply where there are no specific Actionball rules advised below:

The court is divided into halves, an attack half and a defence half. The nets surrounding the playing area are considered part of the playing area

The positions are:

- Goal Shooter (GS) attacking half and circle

- Goal Attack (GA) attacking half and circle

- Wing Attack (WA) whole court not including the goal circles, can shoot 2 point shots from outside the goal circle

- Wind Defence (WD) whole court not including the goal circles, can shoot 2 point shots from outside the goal circle

- Goal Defence (GD) defensive half and circle

- Goal Keeper (GK) defensive half and circle

There is a minimum of 3 females and a maximum of 3 males (minimum 1 male if due to injury or illness)

The male players must play in the following areas

- 1 goal shooter or goal attack

- 1 centre court player

- 1 goal defence or goal keeper

If only 2 males are able to play then they must play different playing areas. Therefore, no 2 males in positions that have the same playing areas. ie WD/GS and can not be GA/GS

Teams consist of 6 players and may have substitutes each team must have a minimum6 registered players

Teams may play with a minimum of 4 players

The duration of the game is 4 x 10 minute quarters, 1minute between quarter times and 1 minute for half time

The WDs from both teams have a toss up at the beginning of the quarter to determine the centre pass direction. Play commences when a successful toss up has been completed. The ball MUST be caught cleanly for it to be deemed as successful.

If a toss up has not been successful after 3 attempts (the toss up is not caught by one of the players) than the WAs change position with the WDs and the toss up process commences

This process will continue through the whole team until a successful toss up has been completed

At the beginning of each quarter the WAs are within the defensive half and not breaking the middle white line

All other players are within their allowable playing half ie GA in attacking half

The nets may be used to pass the ball but cannot be touched byany part of a player Penalty is a free pass to the non offending side

Any net abuse results in a free pass to the non offending side

After a successful goal, the GK or GD takes the ball at the top of the defensive circle to continue play.The ball must be caught or touched within their defensive half otherwise untouched rule applies and a free pass awarded to the non offending team

Footwork, contact, obstruction, held rules apply as per Indoor Netball rules

If a 2 point shot is unsuccessful, and the attacking team get the rebound, a 1 point shot must be attempted (the ball must not be thrown out to a player outside the circle) Penalty: free pass to the non offending team

If a 1 point shot is unsuccessful and the attacking team get the rebound, the attacker may pass the ball to a player outside the circle for a 2 point shot attempt (as long as the ball touched the ring or another player and replay rules do not apply)

If in the attempt of a rebound or 1 point shot the GS/GA are obstructed or contacted and a penalty awarded, the GS/GA may pass the ball to a player outside the circle for a 2 point shot attempt

A shot is successful if it passes completely through the goal ring. The shot can be bounced off the net and does not need to hit the goal ring prior to a successful goal scored.
