Build Out Line

EBYA utilizes the Build Out Line in the following divisions:
  • BOYS 1/GIRLS 1 (2nd/3rd Grade Boys/Girls)
  • BOYS 2/GIRLS 2 (4th/5th Grade Boys/Girls)

The build out line helps in the following ways:
  • Gives defense an opportunity to start their possession in a less pressured setting
  • Eliminates punts used for offense
  • Provides an opportunity for players to be further up the field without an offside violation

Key things to keep in mind with this rule (with the operative phrase of “put into play”):

  • For a throw or roll when the ball leaves the goalie’s hands it is “put into play”, regardless of where the goalie is.
  • If the goalie puts the ball down and then kicks it, it is “put into play” once the ball is put down.
  • On a goal kick, the attacking players cannot cross the build-out line until the ball has left the 18 yard penalty area.

Please see the following materials from our mandatory coach meeting:

FAQs from previous mandatory coach meetings:
  • Can goalkeepers throw the ball to distribute it? YES
  • Can the goalkeeper pick up a ball passed to him/her by a teammate's foot? NO - It will be a penalty
  • Is it ALWAYS a handball when the ball touches a player's hand? NO - it must be deliberate
