Tchoukball is a genuine team sport. It is also totally unique. Beginners will never have played anything like tchoukball, not have experienced the diversity of demands it makes upon players. Tchoukball demands real teamwork. Good observation, constant attention by all participants, anticipation and intelligence of all facets of the game are required, as is good athletic ability.<br>

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL RULES ,EQUIPMENT AND DIMENSIONS OF THE FIELD MUST BE ADAPTED TO EACH GRADE LEVEL

  • The game matches two teams  divided by  a median line of 9 players. One rebound frame is placed on each end of the field/gym .In front of each frame is a semi-circle 10 feet radius,which defines the forbidden zone.
  • THe ball meets the standards of a handball game.It must NEVER touch the ground.During any phase of the game,the ball remains in the hands of one team; interception is forbidden in order to prevent aggression and violent contact. Control of the ball is handed to the other team after every shoot at the frame or after every fault.
  • In order to score a point for the team ,a player must bounce the ball off the frame so no defending player can catch it beore it hits the field of play
  • The team that has just given up  apoint restarts the pay.A maximum of three passes is allowed to put one player in  afavorable position to shoot.
  • Defending players are not permitted to interfere,but must anticipate in order not to be surprised by the ball's trajector when it bounces from the frame.
  • The long sides of the field are called sidelines  and the short side is  called bselines.The area has two zones divided by the mildline.
  • The forbidden zone is a 10 foot radius on each end of the field/court
  • The front base of the frame is placed in the center.
  • The frame s should be fixed to prevent injury.
  • The ball must be round and of safe material
  • FAULTS:
  • Touching the ball with the leg
  • Making more than three contacts with the feetwhile holding the ball(receiving the ball one with one or two feet counts as one contact)
  • Holds the ball for more than 3 seconds
  • Makes a pass that takes the team count of consecutive passes over (3)
  • Touching any area outside of the field of play while holding the ball
  • Dropping the ball during a pass
  • Obstruct movement of an opponent about to receive the ball ,shoot,pass, position himself...
  • Shooting at the frame on which 3 oinsecutive shots have been taken ( a breakdown or point scored returns  the count to zero)
  • Touching the ball reboiunding from the net after a teammate shot and ball falls down in play
  • Makes contact with the forbidden zone before he has thrown the ball
  • Goes through the forbidden zone to take  adefensive position
  • Shooting after an engagement ,before the ball has crossed the median line
  • A fault is penalized by a breakdown in favor of the opponents,this ensures the free throw is taken where the fault occurred.At least one pass must be made before shooting at the frame
  • POINTS:
  • The ball rebounding from the frame touches the field of play before a defender can catch it.
  • Touches  a defender who fails to control it by dropping it on the floor or knocking it out of play
  • Touches a defender on his legs
  • A player concedes a point if he shoots and misses the frame
  • The ball rebounding the net falls out of play or into the forbidden zone
  • A shoot is taken and frebounds off the thrower
  • Touching the ball having contact in the forbidden zone or out of play after  atemmate shoots
  • Deflecting the rebounding ball into the forbidden zone or out of play after a teammate shoots
  • Deliberate touching of the ball ,preventing it from falling out of playinto the forbidden zone.This is an intentional foul
  • While trying to catch the ball ,he steps into the forbidden zone or out of the playing area.
  • Start and restart play:
  • Switch the start of player after each period( take turns)
  • The team that has conceded a point ,restarts the game
  • Restart takes place behind the base line ,beside  the frame, where last point was scored.
  • Following the restart , the first shot may be on either frame provided the ball has crossed the midline
  • One or more passes is allowed before the ball crosses the median line
  • Restart doesn't count as a pass
  • More on Offense

    The offense may move the ball around the court according to the Rule of Threes:

    • The player with the ball has only three seconds before he must pass to a teammate or shoot.
    • The player with the ball is allowed to run with the ball, but she may put only three “footprints” on the floor before she must pass to a teammate or shoot.
    • The team with possession is allowed a maximum of three passes before shooting.
    • Either team may shoot at either frame (one of the unique features of tchoukball), but the two teams combined may not shoot at the same frame more than three times in a row.

    More on Defense

    All “active” defense is actually prohibited. The defense is not allowed to block the path or the view of opposing players or to intercept or deflect the offense’s passes. All of defense consists of anticipating the offense’s shot and being in the right spot to catch it on the rebound.

    These basic rules for offense and defense define the character of tchoukball: A fluid, low-contact game, full of high-speed fakeouts and rapid possession changes, in which physical ability, alertness, and teamwork are equally rewarded.
