Gameday Rules

FIFA Laws of The Game enforced with the following special rules...

  • Scores not recorded.
  • Field size is 20x30 yards, with a 6 foot arc around the goal, where only the GK can go.
  • 5v5 (with GK) - Leaves 4v4 on field.
  • Goalkeeper Arc (6 foot arc lined around goal) - Only the GK is allowed in the arc. If GK gets the ball, he must either roll the ball out, or put the ball down in the arc and pass out. NO PUNTING.
  • If another player enters the arc, play is restarted with a goal kick (offensive player inside the arc), or a corner kick (defending player inside the arc).
  • GK are allowed to leave the arc, but cannot handle the ball outside the arc.
  • Goal Kicks - GK to take kicks from anywhere inside the Arc. GK can roll the ball out or place it on the floor and pass (NO PUNTS). A goal kick happens after the offensive team kicks the ball off the field, behind the opponent's goal. Opposition should stand five yards back from arc.
