The Dreamers


These rules apply to Waterside Karori AFC Football Fives.


Usual football rules apply, except as set out below.



  • Your team should arrive at the venue before the time your team is scheduled to play.  Team managers must check in with the League Coordinator on arrival. 

  • Teams not available to play within 5 minutes of the scheduled start time will be defaulted. 


Match duration 

  • Matches are 40 minutes long (two halves of 20 minutes) plus a 5 minute half time. 



  • Five players on the field at any time (including a goalie). Mixed teams (male/female are permitted).



  • Rolling Subs. The substituted player must leave the field prior to the substitute coming on. 

  • Goal Keepers may be swapped when the ball is out of play and once the referee has been advised. 



  • Goalkeepers may only handle the ball if the ball is inside the goal box.  The goalkeeper may not handle the ball from an intentional pass back (except headers). The goal keeper may leave the goal box, but is then treated as an outfield player until returning to the goal box.

  • The goalkeeper must restart the game within 6 seconds of collecting the ball.

  • When the ball is thrown or kicked by the goal keeper, the ball must make contact with a player or the ground before crossing the halfway line.  A free kick will be awarded to the opposition team at halfway if this does not occur.

Kick offs

  • Are indirect.


Goal Scoring

  • A goal may be scored from anywhere on the field (except when played over half way by the goal keeper or directly from an out of play restart).


Ball out of play

  • Play is restarted with a goal kick or corner when the ball goes out behind the goal, or a kick in when the ball goes out on the sideline.

  • For all restarts, opposing players must be 3 meters from the ball. 

  • Play must be restarted within 6 seconds of the ball being available to restart play.  


Free kicks and penalties

  • No slide tackles allowed - The referee will award a free kick for slide tackles or dangerous tackles.

  • We allow players to slide to intercept a pass, stop the ball from going out or any other action that doesn't involve an opposition player being harmed.

  • All free kicks are direct. Opposing players must be at least 3 metres from the ball. 

  • Penalties are taken from the edge of the penalty area and on the referee's signal. The goal keeper must be positioned on the goal line.

  • Advantage will be played where possible. 



  • There are no offsides except from kickoff.
