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
The Cambridge Rules, written in 1848, first introduced the concept of offside.
There is currently no offside rule in field hockey. There were prior offside rules, rules that restricted the positioning of players from the attacking team in a way similar to the offside rule in soccer. The offside rules were changed as the rules of field hockey changed. The evolution of the field hockey offside rule culminated with its abolition in the mid 1990s.
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.
The offsides rule in soccer prevents a player from standing by the goal and waiting for passes. When the ball is kicked, you cannot be behind the last defender (not including the goalie).
being offside, and being tackled
hockey, indoor soccer
No. This is not a cautionable offense. There are other things that can happen simultaneously to the offside call that could be. But being offside would never be a listed reason for a caution.
Sports such as ice hockey, field hockey, American and Canadian football, soccer and rugby have an offside rule.

Offside was not introduced as a separate rule. English football has always had offside. The earliest sets of rules which were drawn up in the nineteenth century all included an offside rule.
The offside rule was brought in around the early nineteenth century and was similar to rubgy. Due to variations in how offside was implemented under various sets of rules a meeting in 1948 was held and a uniform set of rules drawn up (Cambridge Rules). Offside has been a part of the game since it was invented. The implementation has changed over the years.
you u cant touch the ball with your hands in a offside the other team gets the ballwhen a foul a person in the opposite team gets a free kick
A player CAN NOT be called for an offside infringement if not "active in the play" however you can be "active in the play" without playing the ball. A player CAN be in an offside POSITION with out being "active in the play."
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.
The rules of soccer is called the laws of the game
There can be. It all depends on your local league modifications to the laws.
Yes. The only restart exceptions for offside are goal kick, throw in, and corner kick.
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.
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.
There are no rules regarding how much you can defend as long as you do not commit a foul. If a player from the attacking team goes beyond the defenders and the ball is passed to them after they are past where the defenders are standing, it is an offside. This rule was made to prevent goal hanging.
no the rules are all the same
