During the start, penalty or foul two players must be anywhere outside the circle until the person laying down has the ball.
    • For Uneven numbers, You go around in a pattern until someone says at the end a point switch and then the order reverses. Penalty, foul, beginning of game and point you do it normally with the extra player out on the side.
