Competition Rules

The rules within Forest Summer Soccer are based on the rules of FIFA with specific Summer Football rules applied as follows:

Please note that many of the playing rules, including Goalkeeping rules, are in place to encourage more skillful play, and to prevent power shots at goal from a distance and power shots up the other end of the field ending in a player sitting in the opposition’s side to get an easy kick into the goal. Both of the latter types of play do not promote team work nor skillful play.

All other rules around Tournament Structure, yellow cards, sin bins, cautions, red cards, finals and referees can be found in the full set of rules below.
