### How many players in skating?

At full strength, each team has 6 players on the ice (5 skaters and a goalie). However, when a team commits a penalty, the violating player must leave the ice for a specified amount of time (2 minutes for a minor penalty and 5 minutes for a major penalty). That player sits in the penalty box. There is no limit to how many players a team can have in the penalty box at one time (other than the 20 players they are allowed to dress), but a team can only be a maximum of 2-men down at one time. That means that, if both teams have 2 or men in the box at one time (and they aren't concurrent penalties), there can be as few as 8 players on the ice at one time (3 skaters per side and a goalie for each team as goalies don't serve their own penalties). There can be no less than that.

### Can there be a 5 on 2 when three penalties are call on one team?

No, each team has to have a minimum of 3 players on the ice, regardless of how many penalties they are serving. When you have 3 players penalized at once, the third player's penalty time does not start until the first player's penalty is over. So, the third player waits in the penalty box for the first player's time to be up, the first player leaves the box, and then the third player's penalty starts.

### What is the semi circle in a football pitch used for?

The arc at the top of the penalty area is not a full half circle. It is scribed out with the penalty mark as its center, and it's there to provide a reference mark that allows players and the officials to know where "10 yards from the ball" is with reference to the penalty mark. Upon a penalty kick, players will take up positions about the top of the penalty box, but outside the arc. The top center of the penalty box is actually a bit closer to the penalty mark than 10 yards. Hence the need for the line. The Laws of the Game require players to be ten yards from the penalty mark (and outside of the penalty box) at the time a penalty kick is taken. Players must remain outside those areas until the ball is touched to (re)initiate play.
