Try to stay on goal line extended (GLE) unless there is a contested play near the end line or must move to get a better angle on the play. Always return to GLE before whistling ball into play. Move in and out with ball. Be as close to the crease as possible without interfering with play. Do not allow players to get behind you.

Trail: (6) If you are the new Trail, stay even with the ball, whether it is loose or in possession of the clearing team.
