Kick-ins: The ball shall be restarted by a kick-in after the ball has exited the field over the touchline. All kick-ins shall be considered an indirect kick. A goal cannot be scored from a kick-in and is only in play after it has been played by two separate players
Free Kicks: All dead-ball kicks are considered indirect kicks (free kicks, goal kick, kick-ins, kickoffs), with the exception of corner kicks and penalty kicks. If a free kick is awarded within five yards of the opposing goal area, the ball will be moved back at least five yards from the goal area and proper ball placement is in the discretion of the referee.
Goal Kicks: May be taken from any point of the end line and will be considered indirect kicks.
Penalty Kicks: Shall be awarded if, in the referee’s opinion, a scoring opportunity was nullified by an
infraction by an opponent. The infraction does not necessarily result in a red card. Penalty kicks are
DIRECT KICKS and will be taken from the center of the mid-line with all players from both teams
positioned behind the mid-line. Penalty kicks are dead ball infractions. If a goal is not scored, the defense obtains possession with a goal kick.
Goal Scoring: A goal may only be scored from a touch by either team within the team’s offensive half of the field. The ball must be completely on the offensive half of the field and cannot be in contact with the mid-line. If a player in their defensive half kicks the ball across the midline and the ball hits another player of either team and enters the goal, a goal will be awarded. If a ball is kicked from the defensive half and is not touched before entering the goal, a goal kick is awarded to the defensive team. A goal cannot be scored
from an indirect kick.
Five Yard Rule: In all dead-ball situations, defending players must remain at least five yards away from the ball. If the defensive player’s goal is closer than five yards, the ball shall be placed five yards from the goal area in line with the original placement of the ball.
Substitution: Substitutions may be made during any stoppage of play, regardless of possession, with the permission of the referee and only at midfield. Substitutions shall not be made during play!!!
Goalkeepers: There are no goalkeepers in 3v3 soccer.
Offside: There is no offside in 3v3 soccer
A forfeited game is scored as a 3-0 win for the team that is present.
