Number of Players on the Field
 
     
There can only be 10 players on the field at any time.

There are also rules on how many players for each team can be on the offensive and defensive sides of the field:


 

  • Maximum of 6 players can be on one team's offensive side:



    • 3 Attackmen

       
    • 3 Midfielders

       
  • Maximum of 7 players can be on one team's defensive side:

  • 3 Midfielders

     
  • 3 Defensemen

     
  • 1 Goalie

This means when the team is on:

  • Offense, the 3 defenders and the goalie must stay on the defensive half of the field.

     
  • Defense, the 3 attackmen must stay on the offensive half of the field.

NOTE:
In actuality, it is the number of players who must remain on each side, not the actual position they play, which is important.

This means a defender could take the ball into the offensive side as long as a mid-fielder stayed back on the defensive side.

This also means that an attackman could go into the defensive side as long as a mid-fielder stayed back on the offensive half of the field.
