  3. No Goalkeepers: Players on the field should not be goal tending.

    • Following goals: The team that was scored on will pass it in from their end immediately following goal. The team that scored should back off to midfield to allow the other team to get the ball back in play.
    • Throw-ins: A kick-in is done instead of the thrown-in when the ball goes over the touchline.
