Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When tossing the ball inbounds:

    • A.

      Be sure you don't go over the line.

    • B.

      Hug the ball first.

    • C.

      Don't bring the ball over your head.

    • D.

      Wait for the referee to tell you to throw it.

    Correct Answer
    A. Be sure you don't go over the line.
    Explanation
    When tossing the ball inbounds, it is important to make sure that you do not go over the line. This means that you should release the ball before stepping over the boundary line. Going over the line would result in a violation and the opposing team would gain possession of the ball. Therefore, it is crucial to be mindful of this rule and ensure that you stay within the boundaries when making an inbounds pass.

    Defenders should:

    • A.

      Try to kick the ball to the outside instead of the middle.

    • B.

      Try to get the ball to the middle.

    • C.

      Use their hands whenever they can.

    • D.

      Kick the ball as high as they can.

    Correct Answer
    A. Try to kick the ball to the outside instead of the middle.
    Explanation
    Defenders should try to kick the ball to the outside instead of the middle because by doing so, they can prevent the opposing team from having a clear path towards their goal. Kicking the ball to the outside reduces the chances of the opponent's forwards or midfielders gaining control of the ball and making a dangerous attack. It also allows the defenders to position themselves better and potentially regain possession or force the opposing team to make a less effective play.

    On offense,

    • A.

      You can never, ever go in the big box around the goal (the penalty box).

    • B.

      You should always run to get the ball inbounds.

    • C.

      You should always try to get the ball to the sides.

    • D.

      You can use your arms and hands to keep the defender away as long as you're not shoving or elbowing.

    Correct Answer
    D. You can use your arms and hands to keep the defender away as long as you're not shoving or elbowing.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is about the use of arms and hands to keep the defender away without shoving or elbowing. This suggests that using physical contact within the rules is allowed to create space and maintain possession of the ball. It implies that players can use their upper body strength to protect the ball from defenders while maintaining fair play.

    When you're on the field and a teammate is trying to throw the ball inbounds,

    • A.

      You should stand still so they can get it to you.

    • B.

      You should run inbounds and out of bounds.

    • C.

      You should run and move in a triangle.

    • D.

      You should scream, "Look a pretty bird," to trick defenders.

    Correct Answer
    C. You should run and move in a triangle.
    Explanation
    When you're on the field and a teammate is trying to throw the ball inbounds, you should run and move in a triangle. This strategy helps create space and makes it easier for your teammate to pass the ball to you. By running and moving in a triangle pattern, you can confuse defenders and create passing lanes, increasing the chances of a successful pass. Standing still or running inbounds and out of bounds may limit your options and make it harder for your teammate to reach you effectively. Screaming to trick defenders is not a valid strategy and would likely result in a penalty.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If the other team is trying to throw the ball inbounds and you're defending, you should:

    • A.

      Stand still.

    • B.

      Make sure you let them get the ball inbounds so that you don't get called for a foul.

    • C.

      "Mark someone," which means that you should make sure you're covering someone.

    • D.

      Scream, "We're #1."

    Correct Answer
    C. "Mark someone," which means that you should make sure you're covering someone.
    Explanation
    When the other team is trying to throw the ball inbounds, it is important to "mark someone" or make sure you're covering someone. This means that you need to be actively guarding an opposing player to prevent them from receiving the ball easily. Standing still or letting them get the ball inbounds without any resistance would not be effective defensive strategies. Screaming "We're #1" would be irrelevant and not helpful in this situation.

    When trying to get the ball to teammates, the goalie should:

    • A.

      Always try to get the ball to the players in the middle.

    • B.

      Always try to get the ball to players in the wings (the sides).

    • C.

      Always get rid of the ball as slowly as possible.

    • D.

      Never kick it.

    Correct Answer
    B. Always try to get the ball to players in the wings (the sides).
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to always try to get the ball to players in the wings (the sides). This is because by passing the ball to players in the wings, the goalie can create more opportunities for their team to attack from the sides of the field. This strategy allows for better ball distribution and increases the chances of creating scoring opportunities.

    When trying to take the ball away from someone, a defender should:

    • A.

      Be sure not to make contact; otherwise they'll be called for a foul.

    • B.

      Can only make contact with their feet and only if they're trying to kick the ball.

    • C.

      Make body contact whenever necessary.

    • D.

      Bounce the ball on their head.

    Correct Answer
    C. Make body contact whenever necessary.
    Explanation
    A defender should make body contact whenever necessary when trying to take the ball away from someone. This is because physical contact can be an effective way to disrupt the opponent's control of the ball and regain possession. However, it is important for the defender to do so within the rules of the game and avoid committing a foul.

    Anytime the ball is in the air, a player should:

    • A.

      Wait until it lands before getting to it.

    • B.

      Wait until it bounces twice before getting to it.

    • C.

      Get to it as soon as possible and use their body, if necessary, to control it.

    • D.

      Get to it as soon as possilbe but only use their feet to control it.

    Correct Answer
    C. Get to it as soon as possible and use their body, if necessary, to control it.
    Explanation
    When the ball is in the air, it is important for a player to get to it as soon as possible. This allows them to maintain control and potentially gain an advantage over opponents. Additionally, using their body to control the ball can be necessary in certain situations, such as when it is coming in at a high speed or at an awkward angle. By using their body, players can effectively control the ball and make a play without waiting for it to land or bounce twice.

    To kick the ball as hard as possible:

    • A.

      Kick with your shoelaces.

    • B.

      Kick with your toes.

    • C.

      Kick with the side of your foot.

    • D.

      Only kick with your left foot.

    Correct Answer
    A. Kick with your shoelaces.
    Explanation
    Kicking with your shoelaces allows for maximum power and accuracy. The shoelaces provide a larger surface area to make contact with the ball, resulting in a stronger impact. Kicking with your toes or the side of your foot may not generate as much power and can also be less accurate. Only kicking with your left foot limits your options and may not be the most effective technique for maximum power.

    Goalies can:

    • A.

      Use their hands only if they have permission from their mothers.

    • B.

      Use their hands only inside the big box around the goal.

    • C.

      Go outside the big box around the goal but at that point they can't touch the ball.

    • D.

      Do more jumping jacks than anyone else.

    Correct Answer
    B. Use their hands only inside the big box around the goal.
    Explanation
    Goalies are allowed to use their hands only inside the big box around the goal. This means that they can touch the ball with their hands and make saves within this specific area. However, once they step outside of the big box, they are no longer allowed to touch the ball with their hands. This restriction is in place to ensure fair play and prevent goalies from gaining an unfair advantage by using their hands outside of the designated area.

    At the beginning of the game, when teams line up against each other and the other team has the ball, a player on our team:

    • A.

      Has to wait until the referee tells them to get the ball.

    • B.

      Should go after the ball as soon as the other team makes contact.

    • C.

      Has to wait until two opposing players touch the ball.

    • D.

      Has to wait until the new Twilight movie comes out before touching the ball.

    Correct Answer
    B. Should go after the ball as soon as the other team makes contact.
    Explanation
    At the beginning of the game, when teams line up against each other and the other team has the ball, a player on our team should go after the ball as soon as the other team makes contact. This is because in a game, possession of the ball is determined by which team gains control first, and the player on our team should try to gain control of the ball as soon as possible to gain an advantage for their team. Waiting for the referee or for two opposing players to touch the ball is not necessary in this situation.
