3 Rule Preamble Ontario Soccer has standardized the Playing Rules of Indoor Soccer for all indoor soccer activities in Ontario including facilities built specifically for that purpose as well as other community facilities used for other programs. Ontario Soccer has established a set of Indoor Playing Rules that shows flexibility when it comes to facility dimensions and configurations but also ensures consistent standards for those aspects of the indoor game not bound by the type of facility. Ontario Soccer s "Indoor Soccer Rules Review Committee" reviews these Indoor Playing Rules on an annual basis. Members are entitled to submit input to this review process by January of each year and any rule changes must be approved by the Ontario Soccer Board of Directors prior to the next indoor season. Ontario Soccer also recognizes the game of Futsal Indoor Soccer as an approved form of indoor soccer providing that the Club affiliates and registers its players with a District Association. The Futsal Indoor Rules can be obtained from any Futsal organization. All indoor soccer competitions played in Ontario must therefore, be played in accordance with the Playing Rules of Indoor Soccer or with the Futsal Indoor Rules.
4 The Field of Play The field of play and appurtenances shown in the illustration on the previous page (ie., The Playing Area) is a generic diagram that applies equally to indoor facilities with boards and without boards. The dominant measure will be metric and the internal dimensions will be consistent with or without boards. Where the markings for other sports prevail, eg., gymnasiums, the other sports markings as a substitute for soccer markings is encouraged. 1. DIMENSIONS The field of play shall be rectangular, its length being not more than 64 metres nor less than 45 metres and its breadth not more than 30 metres nor less than 23 metres. Boards or walls which are part of the playing area shall not be less than 1.2 metres high. The glass mounted on the boards shall be considered part of the boards. 2. MARKING The field shall be clearly marked with lines, not more than 12 cm. and not less than 5 cm in width in accordance with the plan. All lines shall be of the same width. The longer boundary lines being called the touch-lines and the shorter the goal-lines. A halfway line shall be marked out across the field of play. The center of the field of play shall be indicated by a suitable mark, and a circle with a 3 metre radius shall be marked round it. The space within the inside areas of the field of play includes the width of the lines marking these areas. For facilities without boards a flag on a post not less than 1.5 metres high and having a non-pointed top shall be placed at each corner; a similar flag-post may be placed opposite the halfway line on each side of the field of play, not less than 1 metre outside the touchline. For facilities with boards, a referee's crease shall be marked as a semicircle with a radius of 3 metres centered at a point on the perimeter wall and the halfway line adjacent to the timekeepers box. 3. THE GOAL AREA The penalty area shall serve as the goal area. 4. THE PENALTY AREA At each end of the field of play, two lines shall be drawn at right angles to the goal-line, 3 metres from the inside edge of each goal opening. These shall extend into the field of play for a distance of 8 metres and shall be joined by a line drawn parallel with the goal-line. Each of the spaces enclosed by these lines and the goal line shall be called a penalty area. A suitable mark shall be made within each penalty area, 7.5 metres from the mid-point of the goal-line, measured along an undrawn line at right angles thereto. These shall be the penalty-kick marks. From each penalty kick mark an arc of a circle, having a radius of 3 metres shall be drawn outside the penalty area.
5 5. CORNER AREA/MARK For facilities without boards from each corner a quarter circle, having a radius of 1 metre shall be drawn inside the field of play. A short line shall be drawn on the goal line five metres from the quarter circle and another short line shall be drawn on the touch line five metres from the quarter circle. For facilities with boards a corner mark shall be placed 1 metre from the boards on the extension of the goal area line parallel to the goal line. 6. THE GOALS The goals shall be placed on the centre of each goal-line. The inside width of the goal opening shall be 3.5 metres. The inside height of the goal opening shall be 2 metres. The width and depth of crossbars shall not exceed 12 cms. The goal-posts and the cross-bars shall have the same width. Nets shall be attached to the outer edges of the goal or the goal-posts, cross-bars and the ground behind the goals. The nets should be appropriately supported and have a minimum depth of 1.5 metres so as to allow the goalkeeper ample room. For safety reasons, the goals, including those which are portable, must be anchored securely to the ground. 7. TEAM BENCHES All team benches must be on the same side of the field.
6 The Ball The ball shall be spherical; the outer casing shall be of leather or other suitable materials. No material shall be used in its construction which might prove dangerous to the players. For competitions up to and including Under-12 the ball shall be a size 4. For all other competition the ball shall be a size 5. The ball shall be judged fit for play by the referee and shall not be changed during the game unless authorized by the referee. Number of Players 1. Unless specified otherwise by the Rules of the competition a match shall be played by two teams, each with not more than six players and not less than four players on the field of play. One of the players shall be the goalkeeper. The rules of the competition shall state the number of players on each team who may be dressed to play. All persons dressed to play shall be subject to the authority and jurisdiction of the referee. 2. Substitutes may be used in any match in accordance with the rules of the competition. The game shall not be delayed to allow substitution, except for the substitution of the goalkeeper. 3. Unlimited substitution shall be allowed. 4. Any of the other players may change places with the goalkeeper, provided that the referee is informed before the change is made, and provided also, that the change is made during a stoppage of the game. 5. When any player other than the goalkeeper is to be replaced, the substitute shall not enter the field of play until the player being replaced is within 1 metre of the center field on the side of the player's team bench. Neither the player entering or the player leaving may interfere with the play while both are on the field. The substitution is completed when the substitute enters the field of play, from which moment the substitute becomes a player and the player being substituted ceases to be a player. Infringements/Sanctions For any infringement of this playing rule the offending team's coach shall designate a player from the field of play to serve a 2 minute penalty and if the referee stopped the game because of the infringement.
7 Players Equipment Players shall not wear anything which is dangerous to themselves or another player. 1. The basic compulsory equipment of a player shall consist of a numbered shirt, shorts, stockings, shin guards and footwear. The footwear shall be appropriate to the Indoor game and the playing surface. The number which shall be on the back of the shirt shall measure not less than 20 cm in height. Players of the same team shall not have the same uniform number. 2. Shin guards, which must be covered entirely by the stockings, shall be made of a suitable material (rubber, plastic, polyurethane or similar substance) and shall afford a reasonable degree of protection. 3. Team colours shall not conflict with each other or with the referee. Goalkeepers shall wear colours which distinguish them from each other, the other players and from the referee. 4.

The player shall only re-enter the game at a moment when the ball has ceased to be in play.
8 Referees Each match is controlled by a referee who has full authority to enforce Ontario Soccer s Playing Rules of Indoor Soccer or the Futsal Indoor Rules depending on the rules for that competition. The authority and exercise of the powers granted to the referee by these playing rules commence as soon as the referee enter the field of play. The referee's powers of penalizing shall extend to offences committed when the ball is in play, the ball is out of play or play has been temporarily suspended.

The referee(s) shall: a) enforce these playing rules; b) refrain from penalizing in cases where by doing so, an advantage would be given to the offending team; c) keep a record of the game; d) have the discretionary power to stop the game for any infringement of the playing rules and to suspend or terminate the game whenever, by reason of the elements, interference by spectators, or other cause, such stoppage is deemed necessary. In such a case the referee shall submit a detailed report, within the stipulated time, and in accordance with the provisions set by Ontario Soccer; e) caution and show a yellow card to any player guilty of misconduct or unsporting behaviour. In such cases the referee shall send the name of the offender to the competent authority, within the stipulated time, and in accordance with the provisions set by Ontario Soccer; f) allow no person other than the players to enter the field of play without giving permission; g) stop the game when of the opinion that a player has been seriously injured; have the player removed as soon as possible from the field of play, and immediately resume the game.

If the Indoor Facility does not allow additional time to be added to games, the League may have another penalty imposed in its local rules for time wasting offences in the last two minutes of the game.
9 Timekeeper 1. A timekeeper may be appointed to assist the referee. The timekeeper shall not enter the playing area and shall be under the jurisdiction of the referee. 2.

Duration of the Game The duration of the game shall be two equal periods of 25 minutes, unless otherwise stated in the rules of the competition. Time shall be extended to permit a penalty kick being taken at or after the expiration of the normal period in either half. At half time the interval shall not exceed three minutes except by consent of the referee. The competition rules shall state whether overtime and/or kicks from the penalty-mark are required to reach a decision.
10 The Start of Play 1. Preliminaries: A coin is tossed and the team which wins the toss decides which goal it will attack in the first half of the game and kicks off in the second half of the game. The other team takes the kick-off to start the game. In the game s second half, the teams change ends and attack the opposite goals. 2. Kick-Off: A kick-off is the way of starting or restarting play: a) at the start of the game; b) after a goal has been scored; c) at the start of the second half of the game; and d) at the start of each period of extra time, when applicable. 3. A goal may not be scored directly from a kick-off. 4. Kick-Off Procedure: The referee having given a signal, the game shall be started by a player taking a place kick (i.e.,a kick at the ball while it is stationary on the ground in the center of the field of play) in any direction (ie., forwards, sidewards, or backwards) on the field of play. All players shall be in their own half of the field and every player of the team opposing that of the kicker shall remain not less than five metres from the ball until it is kicked-off. The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves. The kicker shall not play the ball a second time until it has been touched or played by another player. Infringements/Sanctions For any infringement of this playing rule, the kick-off shall be retaken, except in the case of the kicker playing the ball again before it has been touched or played by another player; for this offence, a free kick shall be taken by a player of the opposing team from the place where the infringement occurred, subject to the over-riding conditions imposed in Playing Rule After any other temporary suspension; when restarting the game after a temporary suspension of play from any cause not mentioned elsewhere in these playing rules, provided that immediately prior to the suspension the ball had not passed over the touch or goal lines, the referee shall drop the ball at the place where it was when play was suspended, unless it was within the penalty area at that time, in which case it shall be dropped on the penalty-area line at least one metre from the boards/goal-line, nearest to where the ball was when play was suspended. It shall be deemed in play when it has touched the ground; if, however,: a) it goes over the touch-line or goal-line after it has been dropped by the referee, but before it has been touched by a player, or b) a player touches the ball before it has touched the ground the referee shall again drop the ball.
11 Ball In and Out of Play Ball out of Play: The ball is out of play: a) when it has wholly crossed the goal-line and/or the end boards whether on the ground or in the air, or touches the netting above the end-boards; b) when the game has been stopped by the referee; or c) when it has wholly crossed the touch-line and/or the side boards whether on the ground or in the air, or touches the netting above the sideboards, or makes contact with any part of the ceiling above the playing area. For such contact, a free kick shall be awarded to the opposing team, below the point at which contact was made, subject to Playing Rule 13. When a player is taking a free kick, all of the opposing players shall be at least five metres from the ball. Ball in Play: The ball is in play at all other times from the start of the match to the finish including: a) if it rebounds from a goal-post, cross-bar, corner-flag post, board or wall, including fixtures attached to the walls, into the field of play; or b) if it rebounds from a goal-post, cross-bar, corner-flag post, board or wall, including fixtures attached to the walls, into the field of play.
12 Method of Scoring A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar, provided that no infringement of the rules has been committed previously by the team scoring the goal. The team scoring the greater number of goals during the game shall be the winner. If both teams score an equal number of goals, or if no goals are scored, the game is drawn. Competition Rules For games ending in a draw, the competition rules may state provisions involving extra time and/or the "Taking of Kicks from the Penalty Mark "or other procedures approved by Ontario Soccer to determine the winner of a game. Offside Offence There shall be no offside offence in indoor soccer.

The team must substitute players not serving time penalties to maintain the minimum number. The time penalty of the third player shall not commence until the time penalty of the first player has expired.
16 Free Kick All free kicks shall be classified as "indirect" (ie., a goal cannot be scored unless the ball has been played or touched by a player other than the kicker before passing through the goal). When a player is taking a free kick inside the player's own penalty area, all of the opposing players shall be at least five metres from the ball and shall remain outside the penalty area until the ball has been kicked out of the area. The ball shall be in play immediately when it is kicked directly beyond the penalty area. The goalkeeper shall not handle the ball, in order to kick it into play. If the ball is not kicked directly into play, beyond the penalty area, the kick shall be retaken.

If a player of the opposing team encroaches into the penalty area, or within five metres of the ball, as the case may be, before a free kick is taken, the referee shall delay the taking of the kick, until the playing rule is complied with. The ball must be stationary when a free kick is taken, and the kicker shall not play the ball a second time until it has been touched or played by another player. Notwithstanding any other reference in these playing rules to the point from which a free kick is to be taken: 1) Any free kick awarded to the defending team, within its own goal area, may be taken from any point within the goal area. 2) Any free kick awarded to the attacking team within its opponent's penalty area shall be taken from the penalty-area line, at least one metre from the boards/goal-line, at the point nearest to where the offence was committed. 3) Any free kick awarded for an infringement on the boards shall be taken at a point 1 metre into the field of play. Infringements/Sanctions If the kicker, after taking the free kick, plays the ball a second time before it has been touched or played by another player, a free kick shall be taken by a player of the opposing team from the spot where the infringement occurred. If the offence is committed by a player in the opponents' goal area, the free kick shall be taken from any point within the goal area.
17 The Penalty Kick A penalty-kick shall be taken from the penalty-mark and, when it is being taken, all players with the exception of the player taking the kick, properly identified, and the opposing goalkeeper, shall be within the field of play but outside the penalty-area, and at least 3 metres from the penalty-mark and must stand behind the penalty mark. The opposing goalkeeper remains on her/his goal line, facing the kicker, between the goal-posts, until the ball is kicked. The player taking the kick must kick the ball forward; it shall not be played a second time until it has been touched or played by another player. The ball shall be deemed in play directly after it is kicked and moves. A goal may be scored directly from a penalty-kick. When a penalty-kick is being taken during the normal course of play, or when time has been extended at half time or full time to allow a penalty-kick to be taken or retaken, a goal shall not be nullified if, before passing between the posts and under the crossbar, the ball touches either or both of the goal posts or the crossbar, or the goalkeeper, or any combination of these agencies, providing that no other infringement has occurred. Infringements/Sanctions For any infringement of this playing rule: a) by the defending team, the kick shall be retaken if a goal has not resulted. b) by the attacking team other than by the player taking the kick, if a goal is scored it shall be disallowed and the kick retaken. c) by a member of both teams, the kick, if taken shall be retaken. d) by the player taking the penalty kick, committed after the ball is in play, a player of the opposing team shall take an indirect free kick from the spot where the infringement occurred, subject to the over-riding conditions imposed in Playing Rule 13.
18 Kick-In When the whole of the ball passes over the touch-line, either on the ground or in the air, or touches the netting above the side-boards a free kick shall be awarded the team opposing that of the player who last touched or played the ball. The free kick shall be taken from the point that the ball crossed the line, or for facilities with boards, from a point within 1 metre of the point closest to where the ball went out of play. Players of the team opposing that of the player taking the kick-in shall not approach within five metres of the ball until it is in play, i.e., it has been kicked and moves, nor shall the kicker play the ball a second time until it has been touched or played by another player. A goal may not be scored directly from a kick-in. Goal Kick When the whole of the ball passes over the goal-line and/or the end-boards excluding that portion between the goal-posts, either in the air or on the ground, or touches the netting above the endboards having last been played by one of the attacking team, it shall be kicked from a point within the goal-area, by a player of the defending team. A goalkeeper shall not handle the ball from a goalkick in order to kick it into play. If the ball is not kicked beyond the penalty area, i.e., directly into play, the kick shall be retaken. The kicker shall not play the ball a second time until it has touched or been played by another player. Players of the team opposing that of the player taking the goal-kick shall be at least five metres from the ball and shall remain outside the penalty-area until the ball has been kicked out of the penalty-area. A goal may not be scored directly from a goal-kick. Infringements/Sanctions If the player taking a goal-kick plays the ball a second time after it has passed beyond the penaltyarea, but before it has touched or been played by another player, an indirect free kick shall be awarded to the opposing team, to be taken from the place where the infringement occurred, subject to the over-riding conditions imposed in Playing Rule 13.
19 Corner Kick When the whole of the ball passes over the goal-line and/or end-boards, excluding that portion between the goal-posts, either in the air or on the ground, or touches the netting above the endboards, having last been played by one of the defending team, a member of the attacking team shall take a corner-kick. Depending upon the facility either the whole of the ball shall be placed on, or within, the corner arc (ie., quarter circle at the nearest corner-flag post), which must not be moved, or the ball will be placed on the corner-mark and it shall be kicked from that position. Players of the team opposing that of the player taking the corner-kick shall not approach within five metres of the ball until it is in play, i.e., it has been kicked and moves, nor shall the kicker play the ball a second time until it has been touched or played by another player. A goal shall not be scored directly from a corner-kick. Infringements/Sanctions If the player who takes the kick plays the ball a second time before it has been touched or played by another player, the referee shall award an indirect free-kick to the opposing team, to be taken from the place where the infringement occurred, subject to the over-riding conditions imposed in playing Rule 13.
