Start and Restart of Play

  • A kick-off is a way of starting or restarting play at the start of the match, the start of the second half of the match and after a goal has been scored.
  • A goal may be scored directly against the opponents from the kick-off.
  • For a kick-off, all players must be in their own half of the field of play with the opponents of the team taking the kick off at least 5m from the ball until it is in play. 
  • The ball must be stationary on the centre mark of the halfway line and cannot be kicked until the referee gives a signal. The ball is in play when it is kicked and clearly moves.
  • After a team scores a goal, provided that the period has not ended, the other team takes the kick-off.


Ball In and Out of Play

  • The ball is considered out of play when it has wholly crossed the goal line or touchline, whether on the ground or in the air, or when the referee stops play.
  •  The ball is considered in play at all other times.


Method of Scoring

  • A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, between the goal posts and under the cross bar, provided that no infringement has been committed previously by the team scoring the goal.
  • Goals can be scored directly off free kicks, penalty kicks and corner kicks
  • Goals can only be scored from outside the penalty area, with the exception of Miniroos U6-U7 who can score from anywhere inside the field.
  • The team scoring the greater number of goals during a match is the winner. If both teams score an equal number of goals, or if no goals are scored, the match is drawn.

a) There is no offside rule in Summer Football, except goals must be scored from outside the Penalty Area.  Miniroos U6-7 may score from anywhere on the field.


Fouls and Misconduct

  • Fouls and misconduct are infringements of the FIFA Laws of the Game. Fouls are penalised with a direct free kick or penalty kick. Misconduct is penalised with a caution, timeout or a sending off.
  • A yellow card is used to communicate that a player has been cautioned. A player is sent off if he/she receives a second caution in the same match. A red card is used to communicate that a player has been sent off. A player who has been sent off must leave the vicinity of the field of play and the technical area immediately and receives an automatic one match suspension.

  •  Slide tackles are not permitted at any time during a match.


Free Kick

  • A free kick is awarded to the opposing team, if a player commits an offence as outlined in the FIFA Laws of the Game. All free kicks will be deemed direct free kicks and a goal may be scored directly from a free kick.

  • When a free kick is being taken, the ball must be stationary and all opponents must be at least 5m from the ball until it is in play. The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves forward.

A goal may be scored directly from a penalty kick.
  • The penalty kick is taken from the penalty mark at the top of the goal circle (or where no goal circle is marked, 5 metres from the goal line). When a penalty kick is being taken, the ball must be stationary on the penalty mark. The defending goalkeeper must remain on their goal line facing the kicker, between the goalposts, until the ball has been kicked and all other players, discounting the kicker, must be located on the field of play, outside the penalty area and at least 5m behind the penalty mark.
  • The player taking the penalty kick must kick the ball forward and may not take more than two steps before kicking the ball. The ball is in play when it is kicked and clearly moves.

  • A goal cannot be scored directly from a throw-in.
  • A throw-in is taken from the point where it left the field of play. When a throw-in is being taken, all opponents must be at least 2m from the point at which the throw- in is being taken.
  • At the moment of delivering the ball, the thrower must be facing the field of play with part of each foot either on the touchline or on the ground outside the touchline. The ball must be held with both hands and be delivered from behind and over the thrower’s head.
  • After delivering the ball, the thrower must not touch the ball again until it has touched another player. The ball is in play when it enters the field of play.
