How to Play Soccer : Soccer Rules for Beginners

Okay, rules of the game. First of all as most
of you probably know by now there are no hands in soccer. But what does that mean? Not only
the hand, but the whole length of your arm. For example, this is a hand ball, this is
a hand ball, this is a hand ball. Up here on your shoulder, it depends on the referee,
but usually it’s not. But anything from your fingertip to the beginning of your shoulder
is a hand ball. Let’s talk about restarts. First thing we are going to talk about is
a kick-off. At the beginning of the game, beginning of the half and after a goal is
scored. If it happens at mid-field the opposing team that gets scored on gets the ball or
whoever wins the coin flip at the beginning of the game gets the ball and the ball has
to travel forward before it can travel backward for a kick-off to be successful. If a ball
is out of play at your end and you are defending it the attacking team that touched the ball
last, you get a goal kick. In which the ball is placed on the 6 yard box, 6 yards out.
It is kicked, usually by the Goal Keeper. Now for a corner kick if your defending team
touches the ball last and it goes out of play at the goal line there is a corner kick awarded
which the attacking team will get the ball in the corner and will send it into the box
in hopes for a scoring chance. If the ball is touched out of play on the sides of the
field a throw-in will be awarded.

    I'm just learning this whole soccer (football) thing. Man, I can't believe I wasted my life on baseball and (American) football.

  11. Jamie Laning says:

    This could be a great series. I'm a little concerned about you using the term "Handball" though. The infraction is "Deliberate Handling". From the laws of the game: "Handling the ball involves a deliberate act of a player making contact with the ball with his hand or arm"

  33. RKH1502 says:

    Hand ball is elbow to tip of fingers… upper arm is not a hand ball

  34. pink06233 says:

    That was not easy.

  35. Legoboss2727cp says:

    Look When It Was Posted…

  36. Sir Shammy says:

    yes it is, the way he said it was right. Any part of the arm or hand is "Handball"

  37. RKH1502 says:

    No, it is in fact hand to elbow. If not, about 1/4 of the goals in the ENTIRE game of football should have been disallowed.

  38. Sir Shammy says:

    A lot of penalties are given with football players claiming it hit their chest, when it hit their upper arm. Hand ball is a complex rule, a player can blast the ball at you and it hits you when you have no way of getting your arm away. BUT if you extend your arm and it hits the upper part of your arm so you can control it, it's hand ball. If you could use your upper arm to control the ball in football, the game would look very different.

  39. RKH1502 says:

    Lower arm*
    Also, the chest (if you haven't noticed) is very close to the upper arm. They are most likely given a penalty for harming another player's game.

    Guys, improve your soccer skills does not have to be hard (I used to feel it did). I'll give you some advice right now. Look for a training program known as Zumlaxoc Training Program (google it). Seriously, thanks to Zumlaxoc Training Program I have become a better player. I probably should not even be talking about it because I don't want a bunch of other folks out there running the same "game" but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I'll share the wealth haha.
