LIKE MOST SPORTS THERE ARE MANY RULES. HERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT

TACKLE: You can only tackle someone who is holding the ball. If a player is tackled while holding the ball the other team is awarded the ball. The aim is to move the ball quickly and score as many goals as possible.

PUSHING: You can’t push players in the back.

TRIPPING: You can’t ankle tap or trip.

HEAD HITS: You can bump players shoulder-to-shoulder or front on, but touching heads is out-of- bounds.

MARKING (Catching): You can mark (catch) the ball only from a kick. Once a player marks the ball, they can choose to continue playing or stop and take a kick. Players often stop to kick when aiming to score a goal.

THROWING: Throwing the ball is never allowed.

Don’t worry about the rest of the rules for now! This will get you through a game.
