The official field size is the size of a half of a soccer field (circa 40 m x 70 m), but FastScoop can be played on both bigger and smaller playing fields. The surface material can be anything; snow, grass, sand, asphalt or any kind of indoor surface.
There are circular goal areas on both ends of the playing field. Players cannot enter the goal areas. When the ball enters the goal area or crosses the baseline; either
1. if the ball last touched an attacker -> the defense team gets a throw-in from the baseline
2. if the ball last touched a defender -> the attacking team gets a corner-throw
When the ball completely crosses a touch line, a throw-in is awarded to the team opposing the player who touched the ball.
Centre mark and centre circle
The match and periods begin, and recommence after a goal from the centre circle. A player from each team stands in the middle of the centre circle each on their own side. Players hold their scoops vertically at head height; scoops touching. The referee throws the ball high in the air between the two players and the players try to jump and catch the ball to their team.
Playing the Game
Players must not run while holding the ball, and must pass it within five seconds of receiving it. Players are not allowed to pass the ball to themselves, but must always pass it to another player or try to score a goal. If the ball is dropped to the floor it is fair game to anyone.
Scoring a Goal
Players can try to score a goal from anywhere on the playing field. FastScoop does not have goalkeepers. The team that scores the most goals wins. After a goal the game recommences from the centre circle.
In official matches the match time is 3 x 20 minutes.
