In the game of SOCCETBALL, the objective is to kick, to head or to knee the ball into the basket located at the center of the playing field. The goal of SoccetBall is to shoot the ball into the basket without using your hands. In a SoccetBall match, two teams compete against each other to see who can score the most points by arching the ball into the basket using soccer skills. SoccetBall is a dynamic soccer game with lots of strategy, team work, passing, defending, shooting, ball handling and dribbling. During a game of SoccetBall, the last player to touch the ball before it goes into the basket is the player who scores the point for his team.

HOW TO PLAY:

Group Free-For-All Rules:   SoccetBall is played like soccer in that the goal of the game is to kick, to head or to knee the ball into the goal without using your hands.   Place the SoccetBall goal at the center of the play area.   Now position the players around the SoccetBall Goal.  Using the SoccetBall ball, throw this ball into play.   Everyone stays in their own personal zone as the ball is kicked and headed from person-to-person until someone scores.  The last person to touch the ball before it goes into the goal gets one point.  There is no out-of-bounds in this informal game.  Simply keep the ball in play.  The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Simplified Team Rules:  As always in SoccetBall, the goal of the game is to kick, to head or to knee the ball into the goal without using your hands.   Place the SoccetBall goal at the center of the play area.   This time divide the players up into two teams.  These teams can have as many or as few players as you may want.  Use either the Official SoccetBall ball or a soccer ball based on the ages and skill level of the players.  One team will start the game by placing the ball on the ground and kicking it into play.  The last person on a given team to touch the ball, before it goes into the goal, is awarded a point for their team.  After a scored point, the opposing team gets to kick the ball back into play from outside of the playing area.  The Playing Area:  this is what makes SoccetBall so flexible as a game.  You can play on a basketball court by simply using the basketball sidelines as the boundaries. Or you can draw a circular boundary line with chalk on blacktop, draw the boundaries with a stick on a dirt lot, mark the boundaries on a soccer field or play with no boundaries at all. When the ball traverses the boundary line, the opposing team gets to throw the ball to his team.  The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
