More about Goalball:
A number of personal and team penalties may be awarded for rule infractions. Here are four basic rules for Goalball:
1. Highball - a thrown or rolled ball must touch the floor of the court before passing over the highball line, which is the line 6m from the goal line at the thrower's end.
2. Ten Seconds - a throw must take place within ten seconds of coming in contact with the defending team. Passing can take place within the ten seconds, and players may move about the court to adopt favorable positions.
3. Three Consecutive - no player may take more than two consecutive throws for his team.
4. Illegal Defense - players must defend the ball from within their team zone. This is a three metre deep zone directly in front of their goal.
A penalty is served by removing the two teammates from the court. The offending player attempts to defend one penalty thrown alone.
