- Build-out line:  In short, the build-out line is where an opposing team must wait behind, while the goalkeeper has the ball or a goal kick is being taken.  In addition, a player is offsides if the player is beyond the build-out line and past the second to last defender.  Here is an in-depth description of the build-out line:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY408eOnAW4&t=412s
