It's mostly the same as outdoor soccer but with a few differences in the rules. Also the pitch is way smaller. Indoor Soccer Rules There are many indoor soccer rules and knowing all of them is not necessary for playing indoor soccer. However, it is a good practice to learn the most essentia…l ones as it will surely help you understand the indoor game better. Let's startâ¦ The team - Most indoor soccer matches are played with 6 players per team. One of this six needs to be a goalkeeper. Offside - In indoor soccer, the offside rule doesn't exist. With other words, you may stand in your opponent's penalty kick area and wait for the ball. In fact, this is a strategy that is pretty efficient especially for contra attacks. The Field - Most indoor soccer fields are rectangular or oblong in shape with artificial turf surface. The game can also be played on basketball courts. Goals are generally recessed into the walls. They are also smaller than the regular outside soccer goals. Equipment - You need to wear your teams uniform and have shin guards & indoor shoes. Jewelry and other accessories are not allowed. If you areplaying as goalkeeper you should wear colors that are easy to distinguish you from all other players plus the referees. Free kick - If the ball hits the roof, a free kick is awarded to the opposite team. The free kick must be taken from the place where it hit the roof. Corner kicks - A corner kick is awarded to your team when the ball hits the netting above your opponents goal. A good strategy to take advantage of corner kicks is to kick the ball with power at your opponent's goal. With little luck the ball will touch someone and find a way into the goal. Don't slide tackle - Slide tackling is not allowed in indoor soccer. You should avoid executing sliding tackles because you will burn your skin and I can tell you that it really hurts! Sliding is dangerous because the walls of the indoor field are pretty hard. If you don't know what you are doing you may injure both yourself and your opponent seriously. Avoid sliding tackles whatever you do. The ball - For leagues that play on hard surface the ball is usually covered with sued or similar non marking covering. This type of ball will not bounce so much and will be easier to control. The crease - There are indoor leagues that enforce a special zone inside the goalkeeper box that is called the crease. Remember that you can'tshoot the ball from inside the crease unless you have entered the crease already having the ball at your feet. (MORE)

Yes because you'll have fun playing soccer it is fun soccer is very fun and I guess you'll be good at it?
um...i don't really get the question, but the answer is that just because somthing is fun doesn't mean you'll be good at it. for example, i think that skateboarding is fun, but i suck at it. ok?

Should you play indoor soccer in the winter because you play regular in fall and spring in winter you also play bball the indoor soccer isn't very competitive?
Personally, i would choose to play the sport you feel is more competitive and you would get the most excersice/playing time out of. If the soccer games during indoor are a joke, go to basketball. youll be in shape, and its easier to train on touches and shots rather than endurance and running.

soccer is fun and rewarding in its own way. The more work you put into improving yourself, the better you will get. Its the thrill of competition and friends you meet along the way that drive you to play soccer. If you are playing at a recreational level then soccer is little work and a complete bla…st! But if you are playing competitively the fun can easily disappear and is replaced with hardwork and commitment (MORE)
indoor soccer shoes, they are made with the same design as outdoor cleats except they only have not cleat and just have good traction
I'd have to go with outdoor: no air conditioning outdoors, it can make you sweat a lot more(assuming it's hot)+when you hit the ground in outdoor, you would probably get dirt stains, and/or grass stains(guess that only affects the difficulty of washing), and it is probably harder ground surface. But… I could be wrong on some of this stuff, or all of it for that matter, just so you're aware. Soccer is awesome, indoor or outdoors,you should be aware of too! Hope I helped! Sorry if I didn't!

Angels 2 or 3 players are angels.the angels move to one side of the room.The remaining players are mortals.the mortals close their eyes.The angels count from 1 to 10 to let the mortals know that the game is about to begin.at 10,the angels move quietly around the room.Each angel stands as close as possible to a player for ten seconds.if the mortal doesn't notice the angel next to him/her,the angel taps the mortal on the shoulder,and the mortal is out.then that mortal can open his/her eyes.if a mortal feels an angel's presence,the mortal says, is there an angel with me? if so, the mortal becomes an angel.if not,they are out. play until everyone is an angel or out. hope you liked them.

Indoor is considered in many countries throughout the world, especially in Europe and South America to be more suitable for children for the following reasons: . Smaller playing area more adept to younger players who are not as fit or do not have the power and range in passing and shooting . Shor…ter overall time as younger players do not have a developed base of fitness . Less players allowing teamwork to be developed easier . Allows 'first touch', shot accuracy and ball control to be developed quicker as playing areas are smaller . Free form positioning - encouraging movement off the ball I have heard that in Brazil you are not allowed to play outfield soccer until you are 16. 15 and under are forced to play 'futsal' (a modified indoor soccer, with similar rules to outdoor). I believe the Brazilian Football Federation did this for some of the above reasons. (MORE)
any shoes, plastic cleats, tennis shoes, etc. but the most common and the one with the best traction is turf shoes Indoor soccer is usually played inside a gym with hardwood flooring. Also, indoor soccer can be played in gyms with turf- like carpeting. Tennis shoes or sneakers are preferred, yet… indoor soccer shoes are the best bet. Do not wear shoes with marking soles or shoes with heels. There are specialized indoor soccer shoes you can find at specialized soccer or sports stores. The link below is for an online store selling indoor soccer shoes if you would like to see an example of one or even buy one. (MORE)
Soccer sneakers should be tight for better ball control and proper shooting. Soccer shoes cannot be lose because it won't allowed you to dribble and pass the ball well. Wear thick soccer socks and the shoes will eventually mold to your fit.
Both but money should not involve a player being sold for more than 40 million
yes you can wear indoor shoes outside but over time the shoe will lose its grip
Yes! You can! However, it's recommended you use indoor soccer shoes for indoor soccer since your runners will get damaged after a couple of games because of the material it's made of.
It is a great sport and I love it! You should ask your child if her or she wants to play. They will like it too!

It all depends on how you touch them, if the goalie has possession, and if the goalie is dribbling the soccer ball.
