The Overtime Period only applies to playoff games – both teams shall play “down”one player for the duration of the period (ie. if 6-on-6, overtime shall be 5-on-5).

Disciplinary Cards / Penalties:
Kickoffs / Free Kicks / Restarts:
Distribution Rule – Rule 7.8 applies, except that goalkeepers may throw, drop-kick, or punt the ball to distribute. Goalkeepers may not distribute the ball to their own team member(s) situated within the defensive arch. Opposing players may not attempt to block or otherwise prevent the Goalkeeper from attempting a distribution. Once the goalkeeper has possession of the ball, opposing players must attempt to leave the defensive arch immediately and may not play any distribution attempts while within the arch unless the distribution passes within the player’s own “space” (directly at or reasonably near the player).
Sliding – Goalkeepers may slide within their defensive arch, as long as the slide begins and ends within the arch. In doing so, a goalkeeper may make contact with offensive players provided that the goalkeeper ALSO makes contact with the ball. Intentional slides to injure will result in a “straight” Red card.
Control of Ball – Goalkeepers may not bounce or dribble the ball basketball-style with his/her hands. A ball control violation results in an opponents’ free kick fromthe top of the arch.
Players may not use two hands on the boards, or grab or hold the wall in the area of the player benches or penalty boxes, while shielding the ball from an opposing player. Players may not attempt to play the ball while one or both hands are in contact with the ground, except for the goalkeeper within his/her arch. A leverage violation results in a free kick for the opposing team from the spot of the violation.
Substitutions are unlimited. (Rule 3.2) Players must first be within five (5) yards of their own bench before the substitute will be allowed to enter.
Players may not exit the field via the opponents’ bench area except due to injury. The official will delay restart of play to allow completion of substitutions(“guaranteed substitutions”) for the following reasons:
