How to Play
The game is started with a swoofball being charmed into midfield where the two Captains are ready to grab the ball and kick it to the Passer whom is considered th connection between the Captain and the Receiver. The Receiver passes it to fellow Receivers. Blockers take the ball from the other team if nessecary and pass it to the Receivers whom must score the goal.
The ball may be thrown, kicked, dribbled, hit, rugged (a term used for when the rug kicks the ball as commanded by the rider) and spiked, but mus't be touched with the elbows or head (except for the goalie if needed)
A goal is worth 3 points
A freethrow is worth 1 point.
If the ball goes out of bounds, the player is benched.
Offensive play, aka harming other players on purpose as defined by the referees, causes automatic benching of the player and if for some reason this occurrs on 3 occasions, a point is deducted and a freethrow granted.
