Rule 9: Spare-goalkeeping

9.1. Application 
9.1.1. To enter the game, the spare-goalkeeper shall be positioned by the player completely inside the goal-area or behind the goalline within the extension of the goal-area lines. 

When the offense occurs: 
Referee’s expression:   Illegal manipulation - free-flick 
Punishment:  Free-flick from the penalty-spot. See rule 11. 

9.1.2. The spare-goalkeeper may be used under the following conditions: 
a. the spare-goalkeeper's player is in possession of the ball; and 
b. the goalkeeper has been removed from the goal and is kept by the relevant player in one of his hands (or put on the playing board, outside the playing area in order not to hinder the game); and 
c. an untaken block-flick has been taken by the defender. 

When the offense occurs: 
Referee’s expression:   Illegal manipulation - free-flick 
Punishment:  Free-flick from the penalty-spot. See rule 11.
  
9.1.3. If the spare-goalkeeper is not in play it shall be positioned at all time off the playing-area. 

When the offense occurs: 
Referee’s expression:   Illegal playing figure number - free-flick 
Punishment:  Free-flick from the penalty spot of the offending player. See rule 11.

9.1.4. When the spare-goalkeeper has entered the playing-area from within the goal-area it is considered a regular playing figure. See rule 1. However, by entering the playing-area, the  sparegoalkeeper may not score a regular goal with its first flick. 

9.2. Removing 
9.2.1. The spare-goalkeeper may be taken off the playing-area any time to reinstall the goalkeeper provided the ball is stationary and the spare-goalkeeper's player is in possession of the ball. If the spare-goalkeeper's player has lost possession of the ball, the 
spare-goalkeeper remains in the game and the goalkeeper may only be reinstalled providing: 
a. Possession of the ball has been regained by the  sparegoalkeeper’s player. However, if the played attacking figure flicks the ball onto a defensive playing figure (not the goalkeeper), and from there it rebounds back to an attacking playing figure, the requirement of change of possession is not fulfilled in order to remove the spare goalkeeper. 
b. The ball has crossed either touch- or goalline. 
c. A free-flick or penalty-flick is awarded to the  sparegoalkeeper's player and that player does not request to play on. 
d. A penalty-flick is awarded against the spare-goalkeeper’s player and that player does not request to play on. 
 
9.2.2. When the spare-goalkeeper is removed, the referee shall allow the defender time to take an untaken block flick. Then the attacker may proceed with attacking. 

When the offense occurs: 
Referee’s expression:   Illegal flicking - free-flick 
Punishment:  
a. Free-flick from where the offending player has flicked illegally. See rule 11. 
b. Free-flick from the penalty-spot if the offense has been committed in the penalty-area. See rule 11.1.

9.2.3. The spare-goalkeeper may only be used again when the ball has been played by another playing figure or goalkeeper.

When the offense occurs:
Referee’s expression:   Illegal flicking - free-flick 
Punishment:  
a. Free-flick from where the offending player has flicked illegally. See rule 11. 
b. Free-flick from the penalty-spot if the offense has been committed in the penalty-area. See rule 11.1.
