Top 12 Beach Soccer Rules

In an effort to help you maximize your experience at Copa Cabana Beach Soccer Tournaments, we have outlined the Top 12 Beach Soccer Rules.

LAW 3: Substitutions: Substitutions are unlimited and may be made at any time whether the ball is in play or not. Substitutions must happen in the substitution zone. Referee must be informed when substituting the goalkeeper. Player must exit the field before the substitute can enter the field via the substitution zone. Substitute infraction (for which play is stopped): free kick from the middle of the pitch.

LAW 8: Kick-Offs restarts: A goal may not be scored directly from a Kick-off. Ball is in play when it is in the air or has been moved forward, if kicked backward must be kicked forward prior to hitting the sand. The ball or feet only can be used to mound the sand. A wall may be formed, but opponents must be five yards from the ball.

LAW 10: The Goalkeeper: may not a score a goal directly while throwing the ball with his hands; may not a score a goal directly after releasing the ball from his hands and kicking it before it touches the ground; may score a goal directly by placing the ball on the ground and kicking it.

LAW 11: Penalty Area “4second Rule”: A team has possession of ball in their own penalty area for more than four seconds, when unchallenged by an opponent for the ball. The opposing team is awarded a direct kick from the center of the halfway line.

LAW 11: The Goalkeeper: May not release the ball from his hands and kicks it into the air before it touches the ground. NO PUNTING. The opposing team is awarded a direct kick from the center of the halfway line.

LAW 11: Player sending-offs (Red Card): Sent-off player may not re-enter the game and must leave the vicinity of the field. After a lapse of two minutes, a substitute may enter the pitch to replace the sent-off player. The two minute time with reduced players carries over between periods! If a substitute is sent-off during the substitution procedure or while on the bench, then the number of players on the pitch is not reduced. If the team with more players scores a goal a sub may enter then.

LAW 12: Free Kicks: Player fouled must take the kick unless injured and substituted, and then only the substitute may take the kick. A goal may be scored directly from a direct free kick. The ball or feet only can be used to mound the sand. Player has 4seconds to put ball in play. Ball is in play when it is kicked or touched.

(A) Free Kick taken in the opponent’s half of the field and nearer to the opponent’s goal than the half-way line. The kick is taken from the spot of the foul (except in Penalty Area). All other players except the kicker and opposing goalkeeper (in his own penalty area) must be 5 yards from the ball and even or behind the position of the ball.

(B) “Cone” – Direct Free Kicks taken in your own half of the field or on the half-way line. The kick is taken from the spot of the foul or the middle of the pitch. All other players except the kicker and the opposing goalkeeper (in his own penalty area) must be 5 yards from the ball and outside of an imaginary “Cone” drawn from the ball to each corner post. Players must not enter the “cone” until the ball has either touched the ground or the opposing goalkeeper. Ball cannot be touched while in the air within the “cone”, except by the opposing goalkeeper in his own penalty area. If a defending player touches the ball inside the cone that runs ball to goal post, before allowed to, the player is to receive a red card for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity. (Send off for AdultGames only)

LAW 13: Penalty Kicks taken from the imaginary penalty mark: Penalty Kicks are the result for a penal foul committed by an opponent in his own penalty area, which would not require the kick to be taken from the middle of the pitch. A goal may be scored directly from a penalty kick. The ball is placed in the middle of the imaginary penalty area line. The ball or feet only can be used to mound the sand. Ball is in play when it is kicked and moves forward. All players except the kicker and the opposing goalkeeper must be 5 yards from the ball and even or behind the position of the ball. Player fouled must take the kick unless injured and substituted, and then only the substitute may take the kick.

LAW 14: Ball Inbound restarts. When a ball passes completely over a touch line, the result is an inbound throw-in or kick-in, team’s choice, to the opponent. A goal may not be scored directly from an inbound. Ball is in play when it is kicked or thrown across the touchline. The ball or feet only can be used to mound the sand. A wall may be formed, but opponents must be five yards from the ball. Once the inbound is selected, the player may not switch. An infraction results in a change of possession at the same location.

A goal may not be scored directly from a goal clearance. If the ball touches any player before entering the goal, a goal is awarded. The goalkeeper must throw the ball into play from anywhere inside his own penalty area. (See above: Law 11 Delay of Game)

LAW 16: Goalkeeper “Double-Pass-Back” Rule. The goalkeeper may not deliberately touch the ball with his hands or arms when the ball is returned to him by a team-mate a second consecutive time, including from a header, without the ball having touched an opponent. The first touch may be from an inbound throw-in or kick-in. Infraction results in the opposing team being awarded a direct kick from the middle of the halfway line.

LAW 17: Corner Kick. When the ball goes out of play over the goal line last touched by a defensive player, the result is a corner kick. A goal may be scored directly from a corner kick. Ball is in play when it is kicked or touched. The ball or feet only can be used to mound the sand. A wall may be formed, but opponents must be five yards from the ball. Player has 4 seconds to put ball in play. Infraction: goal clearance awarded to the opponent.
