FIELD: Small goals with no goalkeeper. Goal box is the arc in front of the goal.
BALL: The game will be played with a size 4 ball.
Bare feet and socks only. NO sneakers, cleats or water-shoes allowed.
DEFENSE: No player may enter the goal box to defend. If a defensive player touches the ball in the goal box (even inadvertently) a penalty kick will be awarded. If the offensive team touches the ball within the offensive goal box, a free kick will be awarded to the defensive team.
FIVE YARD RULE: In all dead ball situations, defending players must stand at least five yards away from the ball. If the defensive player’s goal area is closer than five yards, the ball shall be placed five yards from the goal area in line with the place of the penalty.
GOAL KICKS: May be taken from any point on the endline, and not in the goal box area. A ball that comes to rest in the goal box is a dead ball and will result in a goal kick by the defending team.
INDIRECT KICKS: All dead ball kicks (kick-ins, free kicks, kick-offs) are indirect with exception of corner and penalty kicks.
KICK OFF: May be taken in any direction.
NO SLIDE TACKLING
NO THROW-INS: The ball shall be kicked into play from the sideline instead of throw in.
PENALTY KICKS: Shall be awarded if, in the referee’s opinion, a scoring opportunity was nullified by the infraction. It is a direct kick taken from the middle of the half-field line with all players behind the half-field line. If a goal is not scored, the defense obtains possession with a goal kick. Penalty kicks are not live balls.
SUBSTITUTIONS: May be made at anytime from the halfway line.
Field referee and tournament directors have final say in all decisions.
NO fighting, any person causing fights will removed from the tournament and no refunds will be granted, and ejected player’s roster spot can not be replaced.
Waivers MUST be signed by EACH team member before the team will be allowed to participate.
We have many sponsorship opportunities available. Please contact us for more information.
