    Playing Rules

    • Kick-Off: game starts off with a Kick-Off by one team.  After a team scores, the team that was defending will take the kick-off.  Ball does not have to go forward first.  Pass can go anywhere.  But no dribbling.
    • Out of Bounds: any ball that goes out of bounds over the touch line will be a kick-in for the opposing team (indirect), no throw-ins.  Any ball that goes out over the end line will result in a goal kick for the team defending that end line (no corner kicks) at the top of the goal arc.
    • Goal Arc/Box is marked 3 yards in front of the goal.  No one is allowed to attack or defend inside this arc.
    • Fouls will be called and result will be an in-direct kick from the spot of the foul.
    • In-direct free kicks means the ball must be touched by at least 2 players before a goal can be scored.  Players must be 5 years away on all free kicks.
