Resuming play after time out
Following a time out, the ball shall be put back into play by the player who had possession when the time out was called.

The player must then move the ball from one player figure to another one and then stop the ball for a full second before the motion of a shot or pass may begin.
The time limit begins one second after the ball touches the second man.
If the ball was not in play when the time out was called, the ball shall be put back into play with a serve by the team that originally served that ball.
