b) When a live ball hits two players, the first person to get hit is out the second person is not out.
c) If at anytime a live ball hits the ground it is considered a dead ball. So if the ball hits the ground first before hitting a player they are NOT out.
d) If at any time a body part touches the ground pass the middle line you are out (you are not allowed to touch the middle line except for the first 5 seconds of play). However, if there is a ball that is reachable you are allowed to get it as long as you don’t touch the middle or cross it. Also see THE OPENING RUSH about the crossing middle line.
e) If you are using a ball to protect and a ball is thrown at you and if at anytime you drop the ball you are OUT!!! NOTE: The fingers on a ball is part of the ball but the back of the and the wrist on are not. So if you get in the fingers first your still in, but if you get hit in the back of the hand or on the wrist on you are OUT.
f) IF YOU ARE OUT, have integrity and get out. DO NOT wait for the referee to make a call. If you are caught cheating or waiting for a ref to make a call you will forfeit your play for the rest of the night.
g) Avoid Head Shots – But if someone get hit in the head its usually not intentional and the person who was hit in the head is out

BALL CAUGHT
Note: the order that you got out is the order that you come in when you re-enter.
a) When a person catches a live ball thrown at them someone from their team may re-enter.
b) If a live ball hits one player and falls into the hands of another you are safe, that does not constitute as an out for anyone. Everyone including who threw the ball is safe.

BOUNDARIES
a) The only time you are allowed to leave the playing court is when you are retrieving a ball. If you are trying to dodge a ball and you jump out of bounds YOU ARE OUT!!!
b) If you are out you must be behind the designated line in being out or you team will get a Yellow Card as a warning. If you receive a Red Card the other team may choose one player from your team to come out and start at the end of the line.

THE OPENING RUSH
a) A person must be touching the wall/table/line either with a hand or a foot. If at the blow of the whistle you are not touching the wall you are automatically out.
b) This is the only time you are allow to cross the middle line is at the opening rush for a ball and your fighting for a ball.

BALL HOLDING RULE (For being protection and being OUT)
a) If you are using a ball to protect and a ball is thrown at you and if at anytime you drop the ball you are OUT!!! NOTE: The fingers on a ball is part of the ball but the back of the and the wrist on are not. So if you get in the fingers first your still in, but if you get hit in the back of the hand or on the wrist on you are OUT.
b) Once a live ball hits another ball in a opponents hand it becomes a dead ball. So if the ball is caught after hitting a protecting ball no one is out or if the ball hits a person after a protecting ball no one is out.
c) If a live ball hits a person at anytime before it hits a ball first YOU ARE OUT!!!
d) Sneak attacks are allowed as long as don’t step out of bounds.

NO STALLING RULE (especially for last man standing rule):
If stalling is called twice, by a referee, on a team that has more players, the match will be decided on ONE on ONE best of three match of the players who are left in the game,
What constitutes stalling? Not throwing a ball within 3 seconds – Throwing the ball into the ground. – Obvious throws to avoid a catch.
Throwing the ball above the players head by trying to hit the planet Mars – By being a total wimp, get an arm.
This is at the Referee’s discretion.
Both sides must throw, not just the team who has the advantage.
The same rule applies to the team that has one man standing. He/she must throw with effort. If they are warned twice, the game goes to the team that has more players.
