Well, the objective is the same as the traditional game: Put the ball in the back of your opponent’s goal! 5-a-side is just a smaller version of the world’s great game that allows more individual ball time and continuous play at a fast and exciting pace. Suitable and challenging for the most experienced player, yet just as fun for the beginner.
Each team has 4 field players and one dedicated goalie. Teams are allows “rolling” substitutions (just like indoor soccer)
The basic rules of the game are the same as the traditional game: Put the ball in the back of the net! 5-a-side uses the same ball that you’re use to playing with and games are 40 minutes (4 quarters, 10 minutes each).
The game is great for all ages and skill levels. The smaller playing field and limited numbers of players on the field give you more time to dribble, pass, shoot, and score.
