Regel 64: Diving / Embellishment

Regel 64.1: Diving / Embellishment

Any Player who “blatantly dives”, “embellishes” a fall or a reaction, or who “feigns an injury” shall be penalized with a Minor Penalty under this rule.

A Goalkeeper who deliberately initiates contact with an attacking Player other than to establish position in the crease, or who otherwise acts to create the appearance of other than “incidental contact” with an attacking Player, is subject to the assessment of a Minor Penalty for “diving / embellishment”.
Note: "Diving" is the action of a Player trying to draw a penalty against an opponent while "embellishment" means that the victim makes the impression of a foul look “bigger” than it really is, even though a foul has been committed.

Regel 64.2: Minor Penalty

A Minor Penalty shall be imposed on a Player who attempts to draw a penalty by their actions (“diving / embellishment”).

Regel 64.3: Disciplinary Measures

If deemed appropriate, Supplementary Discipline can be applied by the Proper Authorities at their discretion.
