    That's what I mean by reset - move them to the correct place ideally before they take it - just the nature of hockey being a fast sport means they may hit a foot, the ball rolls forward a metre or so and they tap and go before you can call it

    Ah OK.

    I read reset as meaning the hit had already happened and you were bringing it back for a 2nd go.

    It seems we agree then that proactive management and repositioning prior to taking it is in everyone's best interests.

    Reading player body language and positioning is a good indication of whether they intend to just 'tap and go' or actually reposition the hit themselves.

    If the former, see our previous comments. :D:D

    Yeah it's the balancing act of trying to play advantage and of course when you try and defender immediately does a tackle /mad. Same when the ball is there to be played and they hit before you even blow the whistle for the FH!
