Staying away from person

Do you have to stay 3 feet away from the person you are guarding???Let's say you are a Goal defense and you have a goal attacker,do you have to stay 3 feet away or can you be close to them to guard.

Hi Peyton, 

No, if you are simply defending eg stage 1 or 3, you so not have to be 3ft away, you can be as close as you would like without contacting the player. The only time you must be 3ft away is stage 2 defence, when your player has the ball. 

Hope this helps.

Correct..within 3 feet, but not defending, so both arms have to down in the natural position. However a little different when a shooter is involved, even though you might not be defending, you might be standing in a way your interferring with the shot (unless the shooter has successfully launched her shot without hinderence) in which case you'll get penalised, so need to be mindful.
