2.1: There will be no scores or standings.

2.4: All free kicks will be indirect with the exception of a penalty kick.
2.5 Player substitutions may be made at any stoppage.
2.6 Retreat Line Rule implemented: 1/3 of field. When the goalkeeper has the ball in their possession, be it at a goal kick or after making a save, the opposing team members must retreat to the predetermined area of the field. The predetermined area of the field will be marked with pylons placed both side of the center field. Implementing the retreat line rule allows the goalkeeper to safely and successfully throw or pass the ball to another teammate. Once the player receiving on the allied team from the goalkeeper touches the ball, the ball becomes back into pay and the opposing players may now progress past the retreat line. Game resumes as normal. The five second rule will also be implemented in the new retreat line rule. This rule indicates that the ball will become in play five seconds after it leaves the goalkeepers hands. If the goalkeeper chooses not to wait for the opposing players to retreat, and they throw or pass the ball down the field, the ball is instantly in play and does not require a playing from the allied team to touch the ball first.
