An onside player is any player who is not in an offside position, as described in Law 11. Offside players are penalized if they become involved in active play.
In soccer, a player is offside if he is in an offside position and becomes involved in play. In hockey, a player is offside if he is in the attack zone (fully across the blue line) when the puck enters the same zone. Please see the related questions for detailed information about each sport.
Neither the attacker's nor defender's arms are included when judging offside, because they cannot be lawfully used to play the ball.
Its called Offside, or being in an offside position. Being in an offside position, in and of itself, is not a foul. The foul occurs when the ball is PLAYED to the PERSON in an offside position. You can be "passive", not involved in the play, in an offside position and there is no foul.
If a player of a team is on the other side of the field behind all the players (or behind the defenders) but still in front of the goalie, then this person is in an offside position. This, however, is NOT offside. It is not against the law of soccer to be in an offside position. Now say that person is in an offside position and his/her teammate passed the ball to him/her and that person plays or touches the ball, that is considered offside. That is illegal in the law of soccer. Say the other teammate passed the ball to his/her teammate in an offside position but the person doesn't make a move to go for the ball, then that isn't considered offsides, and therefor is not considered illegal in the law of soccer. A player in an offside position is only penalised if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of their team, they are , in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by: > interfering with play > interfering with an opponent > gaining an advantage by being in that position In doing this the attacking player will between the last defender and the defending goalkeeper when the ball is played to them . If the attacking player is in line with a defending player (not the goalkeeper) then no offside offence has been committed
If there is an offside infraction, the assistant referee (sometimes called Linesman) will raise his flag to indicate that play must be stopped, and follow the the appropriate signal. Play will be restarted with an indirect free kick to the defenders from the location where the offside player was at the moment that his teammate played it.
Being in the offside position is not an offence. Only when the off side player touches the ball while offside. Then the ref will call the ball dead and a free kick will tack place.
You can avoid being called offside by staying in an onside position until you have possession of the ball. If you are caught offside, you can avoid getting called and penalized by staying away from the play and not becoming involved. If is not an infraction to be in an offside position, unless and until you are involved in the play.
You cannot be in an offside position in your own half.
Committing an Offside Offence -A player in an offside position is only penalised if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of their team, they are, in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by the following: >interfering with play >interfering with an opponent >gaining an advantage by being in that position
Jackie Milburn, ex Newcastle player, had the idea of staying in the opposition box so the League dicided to create the offside law.
if you play soccer
Yes, this is possible, and is actually a common tactic. When the defense notices an opposing player trying to move ahead, they can make the call to move forward in unison, causing the offensive player to be offside.
being offside, and being tackled
The original offside rule was that if any attacking player is ahead of the last defender when the ball is played then the attacking player must be given offside. The player must be given offside even if he doesn't receive the pass. The new rule is that the player can only be given offside if he is interfering with play i.e. he receives the ball, he obstructs defending players, blcoks the goalkeepers view, etc.
The Cambridge Rules, written in 1848, first introduced the concept of offside.
In soccer, an attacking player is offside if he or she is in an offside position at the moment his or her teammate plays the ball, and becomes involved in the play. A player is in an offside position if he or she is ahead of the ball and ahead of the penultimate defender. Note that a player cannot be in an offside position on his or her own half of the field, or if he or she is level with the penultimate defender (usually the goalkeeper and one defender, but can be any two members of the defending team) or with the ball. Note that it is not an offense to be in an offside position. To become involved with the play and be called for offside, a player must become involved with the play by playing (touching) the ball, interfering with an opponent, or by otherwise gaining an advantage from being in that position. A player cannot be called offside if he or she receives the ball directly from a throw-in, corner kick, goal kick, or kick-off, nor from a deliberate play by a member of the opposing team (this last bit is the result of a revision effective in 2013, but has nearly always been enforced this way). The reason that these exclusions exist is because the Laws were not written to accommodate tactical errors by the opposing team., and players are expected to be ready for these restarts. In the event of an infraction, play is stopped and restarted with an indirect free kick for the defending team at the location of the offside player at the moment that his or her teammate played the ball (not where he or she became involved with play).
She does play soccer but she ain't a professional soccer player.
There is one offside rule in soccer, and it is that a player cannot be involved in a play without at least two defenders (including the goalkeeper) between himself and the opposing goal. This not only means he can't receive a pass while in this position, it also means that he can't impede the goalkeeper while another player takes a shot on goal.A common misconception is that it is illegal to dribble the ball from an onside position to an offside position. Also, it is legal to run to a ball that is kicked into an offside position, as long as the player receiving the ball was in an onside position before the ball was kicked.
No. Only the parts of the body that can play the ball are considered in the offside determination.
