The Authority of the Referee
Each match is controlled by a referee who has full authority to enforce the Laws for Mini-Soccer in connection with the match to

Start & Restart of Play
A kick-off is taken at the centre of the playing area to start the game and after a goal has been scored. Opponents must be five yards away from the ball and in their own half of the field. The ball must be played forward. In Mini-Soccer a goal cannot be scored directly from a start or restart of play.
Special Circumstances
A dropped ball to restart the match, after play has been temporarily stopped inside the penalty area, takes place on the penalty area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the ball was located when the play stopped. No goal can be scored direct from a dropped ball.

Ball in & Out of Play
Normal rules apply, as per Laws of Association Football.

There is no off side.

Fouls & Misconduct

other player
-touches the ball with his/her hands after it has been deliberately kicked to him/her by a team mate
-touches the ball with his/her hands after he/she has received it directly from a throw in taken by a teammate.

For all these offences, the free kick should be taken from the penalty area line, parallel with the goal line, at the nearest point to the offence.

Free Kicks
For all free kicks opponents must be five yards from the ball.
