All games shall be in accordance with the FIFA “laws of the game”, except as modified below.
Competition sanctioned by this association shall abide by the “laws of the game”, along with any modifications or regulations of HSC.
LAW 1: Field of Play
Field shall be at 70 yards long by 35 yards wide.
LAW 2: Number of Players
All teams will play 6 per side.
Teams must have a minimum of five players on the field to start a game. A 5-minute grace period will be in effect for the first game of the day only.
Substitutions shall be unlimited. Substitutions may be made at any time during the game as long as the player leaving and entering the field does so at midfield and/or without gaining an unfair advantage.
The substitute shall not enter the field of play until the player he is replacing has left.
During REGULAR season, teams may 'borrow' ROSTERED players from another HSC Adult League team.
Use of players not registered with the HSC Adult League will result in a forfeit. This is a liability issue and there can be NO EXCEPTIONS.
Teams must play with a minimum of 4 of their OWN rostered players. A team with less than 4 rostered players will result in a forfeit for that team.
Teams cannot borrow more players than they have on their own and cannot exceed 12 total players. (*This rule to be implemented beginning Summer 2019 season.)
During Playoff / Tournament play, teams must play with their rostered players only.
LAW 3: Players’ Equipment
Player equipment must conform to HSC rules.
LAW 4: The Duration of the Match
Games will be played with two 25-minute halves, and a three-minute half time.
Overtime Periods in Regular Season Matches: If there is no score after regulation time, Penalty Kicks will follow (FIFA Rules, but only 3 players per team). If after one round the match remains tied 3 more players from each team will take Penalty Kicks. If the match remains tied after the second round of Penalty Kicks, the first one to miss a goal will be proclaimed the loser of the match. Due to the size field and to give the goalkeepers a fair chance, Penalty Kicks will be taken from the 18.
Overtime Periods in Playoffs: There will be no Overtime periods in preliminary matches. Playoff matches will have two 5-minute overtime periods, “Golden Goal” format. If there is no score after overtime, Penalty Kicks will follow (FIFA Rules, but only 3 players per team). Due to the size field and to give the goalkeepers a fair chance, Penalty Kicks will be taken from the 18.
LAW 5: Offside
The offside rule will NOT be in effect
LAW 6: NO SLIDE TACKLING
There is NO SLIDE TACKLING, period. A slide tackle will result in an automatic yellow card.
(Definition) A slide tackle occurs when a player leaves his/her feet and leads with his/her feet to play the ball while the ball is in the proximity of another player. A slide tackle does not require that any contact occur between players.
Sliding to keep a ball from going out of bounds, or to stop a ball that does not endanger another player is not a foul. It will be up to the referee’s discretion as to whether or not a player’s participation from the ground is dangerous.
(Goalkeepers) A goalkeeper may leave his/her feet to play the ball inside the penalty box. A goalkeeper leaving his/her feet within 6 feet of another player must do so with their legs in a safe position (not pointed at an opposing player) and may not at any time attempt to kick at the ball with their feet while on the ground. Doing so will be deemed a slide tackle.
LAW 7: Free Kicks
All fouls outside of the penalty area will be awarded a free kick.
All free kicks are indirect with the exception of corner kicks.
The defensive players can be no closer than 4 yards to the ball
LAW 8: Throw-Ins
All balls that go out of bounds on the sidelines will be put back into play via a throw-in.
Defenders must be 2 yards away from the thrower.
LAW 9: Goal Kick
Ball may be kicked from on or anywhere within the goal box (6-yard box).
LAW 10: Corner Kick
LAW 11: Penalty Kick
LAW 12: Violations and Bookings
LAW 13: Method of Scoring
DETERMINATION OF SEASON WINNINGS
In regular season play there will be NO overtime games. Standings in the league will be determined by:
GAME POINTS: 3 points for a win, 0 points for a loss
FORFEIT: A forfeit will be awarded as a win to the opposing team with a 7 point goal differential. (i.e. 3 points for a win with a score of 7 - 0.)
