Hand ball- when the ball hits any part of a players hand or arm. This results in a indirect kick. Indirect kick- Another player must touch the ball before a goal can be attempted. Direct kick- A player can kick a goal without anyone touching it. If there is a tripping penalty is called on the field, a direct kick will take place.

4 Game Play The game always starts with a kickoff
Kickoff must be passed backwards to a teammate??????? After the kickoff anyone can play the ball at anytime. Try to remain in your positions until a goal is scored. Once a goal is scored, you may switch positions. If you are a defender (fullback) you do not have to stand by the goal box the entire time. You can move up the field as the ball moves up the field.

5 Game Play -Players can not score from their defensive end of the field
