Rules

There are usually 11 people to a side with varying players on a team. Most youth team use 8 or less players on the field at a time. The referee is the main authority on the field but there is also two side refs which are the main refs assistants. Kick off is usually determined by a coin toss. Yellow cards happen when jump at a player, kick, trip, charge, strike, push,tackle an opponent etc. The winner of the coin toss can take either side of the field they want but the teams switch sides at half. If a team scores the other team takes kicks off at center field and the ball must go forward.
