‎5.2.2.1 Anywhere above the shoulders

Today's rule is the first of three illegal target zones. These are areas of the body where contact may not be initiated to. Each illegal target zone has a penalty section associated with it. For today's rule the associated penalty section is 6.2 Blocking to the Head or High Blocking. While the other two illegal target zone penalty sections have many degrees of impact penalties, High Blocks are either majors or expulsions due to the safety risks associated with being blocked above the shoulders.
