###How we play ⚽
Goalkeeping: Everyone goes in goal. Rotation every 7 minutes
Game Rules: Normal 11-a-side rules. No slide tackles allowed
Offside: We play offside for obvious ones, unfortunately it will be too difficult to call the smaller ones (cannot be offside from goal kick, throw in, corner)
Pass back: Goalkeeper cannot pick up a pass back (keeper cannot handle from a throw in). If they do, indirect free kick from where the keeper handled.
Throw in: If the ball goes out we play throw ins, no foul throw but the ball must come from behind the head.
Vibe: Encourage and support all players. Keep everybody involved in the game
Game Host: We play with no referee. Respect and honesty are key
Equipment: It never hurts to have an extra ball, bring one if you can
