27 The procedures for taking a penalty corner are: • The player taking the corner must have one foot outside the backline • No other players within five metres of the player taking the corner • Up to five defenders behind the backline with all other defenders at halfway • Attackers must be outside the circle and the ball must come outside the circle before a goal can be scored. • Players may enter the circle after the ball moves. • If an attacker enters the circle before the ball is injected or hit in, then a free hit to the defenders should be awarded. In the case of a defender running out too quickly before the penalty corner is taken, then the corner should be taken again. • The first hit at goal cannot be higher than the backboard when it crosses the line. • If the ball travels more than five metres outside the circle the penalty corner rules no longer apply. • At all times the danger rules applies. • As the umpire you should stand inside the circle close enough to see clearly what is happening. The disengaged umpire moves into a support position where they can easily communicate with their colleague if required. playmedia Watch video below VIDEO - Mouse over for controls
