This is a recreational league.  Play in the spirit of the game.


1.              Six players only {on the field} per team including a goal keeper.  There are no offsides.   Kick-ins rather than throw-ins. You can not score directly from a kick-in.

3.              When normally a penalty kick would be awarded, play will start with a designated attacking player, starting at centre, they will have 5 seconds from when they start their forward motion with the ball to take a shot on goal. Once the attacking player has released the shot they can not replay the ball. Once the keeper has stopped the shot or goal scoring opportunity, or time has expired, play will be restarted with a goal kick.  During this time all players are to be on the defensive side of the centre line.   If a goal is scored, then the game will restart with a kick-off.  If the keeper makes a save, outside of the penalty area, intentional using their hands, the penalty shoot will be retaken.
