i. FOULS

I) Fouls penalized with a direct free kick for: tripping, pushing, shoving, holding, charging and striking an opponent, and also for handling the ball deliberately (except goalkeeper within his/her own penalty area.) All the above are considered accumulated fouls, and direct free kick taken from the place where the offense occurred.

II) Fouls penalized with an indirect free kick for:

1. goalkeeper handling the ball on his own half for more than 4 seconds,

2. for touching a ball after it’s been deliberately played to him/her by a teammate without an opponent playing or touching it (both these only for U9 and older ages),

3. goalkeeper touches the ball with his/her hands in the penalty area after kicked to him/her by a teammate including on kick ins,

4. for dangerous play, and obstruction, an indirect free kick taken from the place where the infraction occurred unless it takes place in the penalty area, then it’s taken at the edge of the penalty area.

j. ACCUMULATED FOULS

  • Once a team reaches 5 accumulated fouls in a half, the sixth and all subsequent fouls in the same half are sanctioned with a direct free kick without a wall, taken from the second penalty mark. Accumulated fouls from the first half don’t carry over to the second half.

k. GOAL CLEARANCE

– When the ball is thrown directly out of the penalty area by the goalkeeper. Goalkeeper cannot throw the ball directly over the half line, ball must first touch his own half.

Exception: when goalkeeper prevents the ball from going across the goal line, he can then throw the ball over the half line without it first bouncing on his side, also in this instance goalkeeper can drop kick the ball but can’t punt. Furthermore, the ball doesn’t have to clear the penalty area before touched again.
