Game Rules:

Players may run with the ball anywhere on the court or the field until their flag is pulled by an opposing team player, after their flag is pulled they have 3 steps to anchor a pivot foot, and pass off or shoot the ball. If a ball carrier loses both flags they are to stay in a stationary position until one of their teammates pulls a flag from the opposing teams player while they are carrying the ball, and gives that flag to the stationery player.  At that point they rejoin the game and play as usual. 

Note: Flags can only be pulled from a player while they are in motion and in possession of the ball.

Neither team’s players are allowed inside the goal zone.  This is the three-second zone in basketball, for indoors.  We suggest that you shorten this zone by half and widen it by 3 to 5 feet; you can mark this area with tape or cones.

This is a non-contact sport!  No stripping of the ball from another player, no pushing and no unnecessary contact or roughness is allowed.

A loose ball can be picked up by players from either team; however, kicking a loose ball is not allowed.

The ball can be kicked, bounced or thrown for passing or scoring.

Violations:

When a player steps out of bounds with the ball in their possession, the ball goes to the opposing team at the point where the player stepped out of bounds.

Unnecessary contact and or the offensive team players entering into the goalie zone results in a loss of possession of the ball.

Unnecessary roughness or the defenders stepping into their own goal zone results in one penalty shot. All players from both teams remain behind the centerline of the field or court.  Starting from center court or field, the chosen or fouled player is allowed

” a one-on-one” with the goalie. The ball can be thrown or kicked into the goal or thrown or kicked through the basketball hoop (indoors).  As soon as the shot is made, play continues.

Outdoors version of out of bounds

 Out of bounds balls are put back into play in a touch football manner.  Both teams may huddle at this time then, the team’s line up and the ball is hiked from the line where the ball  went out of bounds. This rule is also used as a strategy for slowing the game down, indoors or outdoors.
