Marking the Gym Floor
Click here for printable version
Please be sure that your gym floor is
properly marked prior to each game.
Lines that should be placed:
1. the goal line
2. the touch line
3. the penalty box area
4. the penalty spot
The lines should be placed exactly as in the drawing below. All
dimensions remain the same regardless of the size of the gymnasium.
1. Extend the permanent painted center lines, which often don't
go all the way to the edge of the gymnasium, to the walls.
2. Mark any other areas along the side of the gym where the ball is
3. If you are using bleachers on one side of the gymnasium and not the
other, the center line will shift and the goals, penalty box, etc. must also
shift. In that event, mark the kick-off spot in the center of the gym.
