Game Rules

  • Check-In: Players must check-in to play. After the game has started, players can check-in with the center referee at halftime. After the second half has started, players cannot check-in. If teams put players on the field who are not checked-in, they forfeit the match.

  • Referees: Strive to stay close to the play and make calls clearly and decisively. 

  • If a call is in question, the center referee will confer with the linesman to make a final decision.

  • Player Disputes: Communicate through the field captain to the referee or coach to the linesman only.

  • Players yelling at the referee is a carded offense.

  • Cards: Referees are able to give verbal warnings (notify team captain), require a mandatory substitution, and give yellow and red cards.

  • Yellow Card: Recorded and optional substitution. Second yellow in a match is a red card. Four yellow cards accrued during the season results in a red card.

  • Red Card: Recorded and immediate expulsion from the match and that team’s following match.

  • Player Dissent/Profanity/Derogatory Language: Immediate verbal warning, or if repeated, a yellow card and mandatory substitution.

  • Fighting: Physically fighting anyone on the premises of an ANSL game location will result in an automatic red card and suspension through the rest of the current season and suspension for the following season. The police will be called. It is up to center referee to determine if the game can continue or needs to be cancelled.

  • Substitutes: Notify linesman. Wait at midfield. Referees will check entering player’s numbers to make sure they have checked-in.

  • Match Balls: Captains required to bring 2 match balls to each game. Referees will check air pressure and quality. Recommend teams label match balls with Name and Phone Number.

  • Player Minimum: Teams must have 7 players to play. If they do not have 7 players at game time their team forfeits unless the other team wants to wait and time will be taken off the first half.

  • Under the Player Minimum Rule: Forfeits result in zero points for the forfeiting team and 3 points and 3 goals for the other team.

  • Bias: Referees who also play in the league will never center referee their own team. If there is an incident of bias, captains and referees can email the league administrator who will investigate and resolve the issue.

  • Sportsmanship: Players are expected to treat each other with respect and professionalism. No matter what happens during the match, players are responsible for putting the match aside, shaking hands, and refocusing on gathering for devotion together.
