The Goals to be used in the competition are 2m high X 3m wide.  The Goal Area will be a Semi circle or “D” of a 6m radius from the goal.  This will serve as a penalty area.  All players are allowed inside the penalty area as per Futsal laws.

Laws of the Game


The goalkeeper can pick the ball up anywhere inside the penalty area. The Goalkeeper is allowed to leave the penalty area, but can not handle the ball once outside.

Distribution may be made only by throwing/rolling or playing from the ground (Kicks directly out of the hands are not permitted. Once the ball is placed on the ground, other players are permitted to play it. A goalkeeper change may only be made during a stoppage in play, and the Referee must be notified accordingly.

Goal Kicks

Goal kicks must be taken by the goalkeeper from inside the Penalty area. The ball must be kicked from the ground, not thrown (the ball may be thrown if the goalkeeper picks the ball up in play). In the U6 and U8 Competition the opposition team must be behind the half way line when a goal kick is being taken.

Back Passes

The regular back pass rule applies – i.e. the goalkeeper may not pick the ball up.


These will be marked and taken in the usual manner


When the ball goes over the sideline play restarts with a kick-in (i.e. no throw-ins).

Please note:  A goal cannot be scored from a Kick In.


Players must remain on their feet to make a tackle. Slide tackles or those made on one knee will be penalised with a free kick.


Penalties are awarded as normal for any fouls inside the rectangle Penalty Area and will be taken from the penalty spot marked 5m from the goal.

Free Kicks

All Free kicks, other than penalties, will be indirect. Opposing players must be a minimum of 5m away from the ball. Any kick-off will also be indirect, meaning the ball must be touched twice before a goal is scored.


There will be no offside rule.
