HSA Build Out Line Rule

The build-out line is used to promote playing the ball out of the back in an unpressured setting. When the goal keeper has the ball, either during play or from a goal kick, the opposing team should move behind the build out line. The rule is designed to increase player development through more meaningful player touches in matches, and is also intended to reduce goals from these scenarios.
