11. Live Ball: A throw that strikes an opponent = opponent out. If a ball hits the ground, walls, bleachers, backboard = dead ball. A ball that hits a player and pops up and is caught be a member of the hit players teams = thrower out. A throw that is caught= thrower out.
12. NO BLOCKING: You may not use a dodgeball to block a throw. If you are hit anywhere (including head) you are out.
13. Stalling: If a player(s) are deemed by the officiating staff to be holding a ball for the purpose of stalling, the officials will initiate a 5-second count. At this point, any player holding a ball at the onset of the countdown will have 5 seconds to either throw the ball or roll it to the opponents’ side. If the player does not release the ball across the mid-line after the countdown has been completed, that player will be called out.
If the 5-second count is initiated by an official, a player holding a ball may not reset the count merely by dropping the ball. It MUST cross the mid-line for it to count as getting rid of the ball.
