1 FISU World Handball Championship Málaga / ESP July 2016 IHF: THE NEW RULES 2016 Summary of main changes Preparation by Roger Xhonneux Lecturer IHF-PRC

2 Based on the observations during the last few years, and especially due to the results of a world-class coaching symposium, the following substantial and structural changes were made to five fields of application of the Rules of the Game. These are: Goalkeeper as a court player Injured player Passive play Last 30 seconds Blue card New Guidelines and Interpretations The following overview is a thematic approach out of chronological order

3 Goalkeeper as a player The current possibility for a goalkeeper to be substituted by a court player wearing an overshirt remains fully valid (the old one). In addition, a seventh court player may substitute the goalkeeper. In this case, the player cannot carry out the function of the goalkeeper, i.e. entering the goal area to take the goalkeeper s position. When the ball is in play and one of the seven court players enters the goal area blocking the ball (or clearly destroying a clear chance of scoring), a 7m throw is granted to the opposing team. Moreover, the player is punished progressively. He is also punished progressively if the team loses the ball and the player tries to gain an advantage by entering the team s own goal area.

4 Goalkeeper as a player In case of substitution between goalkeeper and player the existing rules shall apply. If the team that has to execute a goalkeeper throw is playing without a goalkeeper, a goalkeeper (or a court player with overshirt) must replace one of the court players. If the opposing team is allowed to execute a free throw after the final signal has been given, the defending team is permitted to replace a court player for a goalkeeper if the team is playing without a goalkeeper at that moment.

5 Goalkeeper as a player- Summary Substitution allowed when taking a free throw after the final signal (2:5). It is no longer compulsory for a team to play the whole match with a goalkeeper. A court player with overshirt is still allowed to participate. Recommendations on substitutions of a goalkeeper for a court player. A goalkeeper must replace a court player when executing a goalkeeper throw.

6 Goalkeeper as a player- Summary Time-out in case of replacement of a court player with a goalkeeper in order to execute a goalkeeper throw. Time Out is not obligatory (see clarification 2) Direct progressive punishment of a court player entering the team s own goal area after losing the ball if the team is playing without a goalkeeper. Faulty substitution if it is not possible to identify the guilty player. Due to this change to the Rules, a goalkeeper who is on the court may also be named as guilty player.

7 Injured player Information: Over the last few years, we have observed more and more situations where a player asked for medical care inside the playing court although it was not necessary in order to show unsportsmanlike actions by breaking the rhythm of the game and extending unnecessarily its duration. This had a negative impact on the game and the TV broadcasting. The actions carried out until now by referees and delegates have not been enough to eliminate this practice. New Instructions to the referees how to proceed: If the referees are absolutely sure that the injured player needs medical treatment on the court, they will immediately grant a time-out and the permission to enter the court (hand signals no. 15 and 16).

8 Injured player In all the other cases, the referees will ask the player to stand up and receive medical care outside the court before showing the hand signal no. 16. If only the hand signal no. 15 (Time-out) is shown, it does not mean that the injured player has to leave the playing court and that he is temporarily not allowed to re-enter the court (see below). A player who received medical treatment outside the court may re-enter the court at any time. Any player failing to comply with these provisions will be punished due to unsportsmanlike conduct. If a player, who received medical treatment on the court or has to wait in the substitution area during three attacks of his team, is punished with a 2- minute suspension, he is allowed to re-enter the court at the end of this suspension (regardless of the number of attacks played).

9 Injured player - Summary After receiving medical care on the court, the player must leave the playing court. He can only re-enter following the third attack of his team. The player may be substituted on the court. Regardless of the counted number of attacks, the player can re-enter the playing court when the game is continued after the end of a half-time. If the player enters the playing court before the end of the three attacks, this shall be punished as illegal entry (faulty substitution). The timekeeper / scorekeeper / delegate will be responsible for supervising the number of attacks played. After the three attacks, the timekeeper / scorekeeper / delegate will inform the team adequately (for example by removing the existing card with the respective player number). Important: The decision is regarded as based on their observation of facts

10 Injured player Summary An attack starts with the possession of the ball and ends when a goal is scored or the attacking team loses the ball. If the team is in possession of the ball when his player needs medical care on the court, this attack is counted as first attack. In two situations the player, who received medical treatment on the court, does not have to leave the court during three attacks of his team: if the required treatment of injury on the playing court is the result of an illegal action by an opposing player who has been punished progressively by the referees; if the goalkeeper s head is hit by a ball during a defending action inside the goal area and treatment inside the court is necessary.

11 Injured player - Summary After the referees have given a team the permission for two persons who are entitled to participate to enter the court during time-out for medical treatment of an injured player, it is not allowed for this team to refuse to enter the playing court and to give medical treatment to the injured player on the court. If the team fails to comply with this provision despite repeated requests, the responsible team official is to be punished progressively.

12 Passive Play Information: Many coaches believe that these rule provisions are not used in the same way by the referees, especially after the forewarning signal for passive play has been shown. They request a change that should give all referees additional objective criteria guaranteeing a more uniform interpretation of the Rules. These remarks were taken into account when setting up the following changes. At the same time, the referees are asked to consistently punish violations of the Rules committed by the defending team that should be punished progressively in such situations.

13 Passive Play The existing rules are still applicable: after showing the forewarning signal the referees can whistles for passive play in any moment if they don t recognize an attempt to get into position to take a shot on goal. NEW: after showing the forewarning signal the team forewarned has a maximum of 6 passes to shot on goal. If after a maximum of 6 passes no shot on goal is taken, one of the referees whistles for passive play (free-throw for the other team). No interruption of the count of passes: - If a free throw or a throw-in is awarded to the attacking team. - The same if a shot is blocked by the defending team.

14 Passive Play Exceptions: Actions which are not considered as pass: - If an attempted pass cannot be controlled due to a penalised foul by a defending player - The same applies if an attempted pass is deflected by a defending player out over the side line or the outer goal line - Or if a throwing attempt is blocked by the defender. Gets the ball from attacker to attacker, this counts as a pass (also in case of an foul with advantage)

15 Exceptions: Passive Play One additional pass for the attacking team: When shooting on goal after the sixth pass if the referee whistles for free throw because of an infraction by the defending team. If the throwing attempt after the sixth pass is blocked by the defending team and the ball passes the side line or the outer goal line or if the ball is directed to the attacking team. In case of a throw after the 6th pass, a subsequent free-throw, throw-in, must not be executed as a direct throw (even not in case of recurrence).

16 Passive Play Important: The counting of passes by the referees is a decision on the basis of their observation of facts.

17 Last 30 seconds Since the changes to the Rules of the Game in 2005, unsportsmanlike conduct (for example preventing a throw-off) or serious fouls during the last minute of the game have been punished according to special provisions. The player was disqualified and the referees submitted a written report resulting in the suspension of the player in most cases. In spite of these measures success has been partial. When it was necessary to take a narrow advantage over the other team or to hold the opponents to a draw, the teams and players were often ready to take the risk of being suspended in order to prevent the opposing team from creating a scoring opportunity and from equalising or winning the game.

18 Last 30 seconds The provisons allowing punishment of the infractions are adjusted as follows: The period of application of the special provision is changed to last 30 seconds of the game (Instead of 1 minute) The decisive point is that the infraction is committed during the last 30 seconds of the game or at the same time as the final signal. New: The guilty player / official is punished with a disqualification without report Additionally a 7m throw is given to the opposing team

19 Last 30 seconds New: The guilty player / official is punished with a disqualification with report Additionally a 7m throw is given to the opposing team if the referee consider that the infraction is a particulary serious violation of the rules 8:6 or 8:10a-b

20 If the ball is out of play (Rule 8:10c): Last 30 seconds - Summary Preventing or delaying the execution of a throw-off, free throw, throw-in or goalkeeper throw during the last 30 seconds of the game is punished with a disqualification and a 7m throw. This applies to any type of interference, for instance holding the opponent, illegal interfering with the thrower or preventing the thrower from making a pass as well as intercepting a pass to the thrower, interference with the reception of the ball, not releasing the ball. This rule also applies if the game is interrupted due to a faulty substitution of the defending team by preventing and delaying the execution of a throw. Rule 8:10c is not applicable during a Time Out

21 If the ball is in play (Rule 8:10d): Last 30 seconds - Summary and the attacking team is prevented by an infraction in accordance with 8:5 or 8:6 (disqualification) during the last 30 seconds from obtaining a clear chance of scoring, the guilty player is disqualified and a 7m throw is given to the opposing team. This rule is not applicable if a player was fouled, as this action is punished by giving a free throw or a 2-minute suspension.

22 Precisions (1): Last 30 seconds - Summary The following points have to be taken into account in case of punishment of such infractions in accordance with the Rules: If the player, who was fouled, succeeds in scoring a goal, the guilty player is disqualified and the 7m throw is not given. If the player, who was fouled, succeeds in passing the ball to teammate despite interference, it is correct to wait for the outcome. If the teammate scores a goal, this point is counted and the 7m throw is not given and the guilty player is disqualified. If the teammate receiving the ball makes a pass to another teammate, the referees interrupt the game and a 7m throw is given. The guilty player is disqualified.

23 Precisions (2): Last 30 seconds - Summary If the attacking team cannot score a goal in this situation, the guilty player is disqualified and a 7m throw is given to the attacking team. In this case, the 7m throw is not given because a clear chance of scoring is illegally destroyed, but is an additional punishment for an infraction in accordance with Rule 8:5 or 8:6 during the last 30 seconds of the game.

24 Precisions (3): Last 30 seconds - Summary Similarly, the provisions mentioned above are applicable if a team official has an extremely unsportsmanlike conduct during the last 30 seconds of the game in accordance with Rule 8:10a or 8:10b (I). Example: threatening or insulting behaviour, or interference in the game on the court or from the substitution area. If there is a collision between the goalkeeper and the opponent outside the goal area during a fast break in the last 30 seconds of the game, the 7m decision is applicable according to the Comment of Rule 8:5 (last paragraph). It must always result in a 7m decision if the goalkeeper commits in this situation an infraction in accordance with Rule 8:6

25 Blue Card Often it is no clear for the teams, the media or the spectators if a disqualification is given by the referees with written report (with additional disciplinary actions) or without report (no further effect). The following change shall provide more clarity: If the referees show a blue card after holding up the red card, a written report is sent to the competent body that is responsible for taking any further actions. Consequently, a disqualification is still indicated by holding up the red card the blue card is shown as additional information. => See Rule 16: 8 (Rules 8:6, 8:10) The referees will first show the red card and later, after a short discussion, the blue card The referees are in possession of the blue card.

26 Further modifications In addition to the five main fields of application, several minor changes, editorial adaptations and corrections of individual references have also been made. These details are now summarised in a new Section called Guidelines and Interpretations of the Rules of the Game. These additional provisions are binding and allow a more standardised and improved application of the Rules.

27 Further modifications Clarified very precisely and in detail are now in rule 4:9 and in the guidelines, the equipment permitted and not permitted to wear. The IHF Medical Commission indicated all types and sizes of face masks in their recommendation about the ban on such equipment. Thus there would be no room for interpretation. Even if the face mask concerned did not pose a danger to others. Example: Advice on face masks ban and other objects not allowed (Rule 4:9) Helmet not allowed all kinds of helmets Face mask not allowed also masks covering parts of the face Nose protection allowed tape, soft material Headband allowed elastic material Head scarf allowed elastic material Captains armlet allowed on upper arm, about 5 cm wide, one single colour

28 Further modifications Clarified very precisely and in detail are now in rule 4:9 and in the guidelines, the equipment permitted and not permitted to wear. Example: Advice on face masks ban and other objects not allowed (Rule 4:9) Captains armlet allowed on upper arm, about 5 cm wide, one single colour Elbow protection allowed soft material, thin, short Wrist protection allowed soft material, thin, short Finger band Gloves not allowed not allowed Knee protection allowed soft material, no metal Ankle joint protection allowed hard parts covered T-shirt for court player allowed same colour as goalkeeper acting as goalkeeper
