When you are looking at football rules so that you can better understand the game, it is pretty easy once you have everything broken down. Let us start with the field and that it is rectangular and it is either played on grass or artificial turf that is green. Yes this is pretty basic but some just do not know. In the center of the short ends, you are going to find the goals that are guarded by the goalkeepers who try to keep the ball out from the opposing team so they cannot score.
When it comes to being able to touch the ball, the team players on the field are to use their feet but the goalkeepers are actually allowed to touch the ball using their hands and arms as well. The football rules also state that the players on the field can use their head and torso in order to pass the ball or to intercept while it is in the air. Of course if a team member touches the ball with a part of the body that is not appropriate than of course there will be a foul called with a penalty.
The object of the game is for the team to get the ball into the goal at the opposing end of the field. Whichever team scores the most at the end of the game wins. The football rules need to be followed throughout the game otherwise you will find that the team will be given penalty fouls. There are different levels of fouls that can be given to a team player depending upon what the offense was. You also need to remember that if the penalty is severe enough, a team member or even staff can be asked to leave the field.
The main reason that a player may be asked to leave the game or the field is for misconduct. It is not very often that you will see a team mate actually get asked to leave the field because of something so major. Teams and the individual members generally follow the football rules but you will find that less punishable offenses do occur. When this happens, the opposing team that did not commit the foul will be given a penalty kick or by perhaps an indirect free kick. It all depends upon the foul that was committed.
If there is a foul against the football rules, a card is given out to the player that had the infraction. This is either a red or yellow card depending upon the issue. A yellow card is a caution or warning card but the red card is a sending off card. If a player receives two of the yellow cards the third is a red and they will have to leave. As opposed to other sports, this one is fairly easy to follow and does not have a lot of rules that need to be followed. This means that even a beginner will be able to pick up the sport fairly easy.

Carmel, NY (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
To many Americans, nothing says autumn quite like the start of football season, and to parents of school-age kids, that often means youth (or pee wee) football, which sends 5- to 14-year-olds onto the gridiron. But while junior football is wildly popular, with close to 4 million players in organized leagues, it can be a dangerous game, says Victor Khabie, MD, FAAOS, FACS, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Somers Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Group.
Each year, more than 3.5 million sports-related injuries in children are treated in hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, ambulatory surgery centers and hospital emergency rooms in the United States, he says. And among those injuries, nearly 450,000about 13 percentwere sustained playing football. Its been estimated that more than a quarter of young football players are injured while playing.
Football is a wonderful game that helps improve a childs physical fitness, coordination and self-discipline, and it can teach them a lot about teamwork, Dr. Khabie says, but its also one of the biggest causes of injury-related emergency room visits in children. Kids ages 5 to 14 account for nearly 40 percent of all sports-related injuries treated in hospitals.
Pee wee football players are not just smaller versions of adult athletes, he says. A childs bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments are still growing, which makes them more susceptible to injury. Children also have marked differences in coordination, strength and stamina. Young athletes of the same age also can vary a lot in physical and emotional maturity, he adds, and some may try to do things theyre just not ready to do.
Because its a contact sport, football typically produces more acute (caused by a sudden trauma) that overuse injuries (caused by repetitive motions like pitching a baseball). But while football accounts for more serious injuries than any other sport, the vast majorities, about 95 percent, of injuries in young players are minor traumas involving soft tissues: bruises, muscle pulls, sprains and strains.
Younger kids are less likely to experience severe injuries because theyre smaller and slower than older children or adults. But junior football players are at a unique risk for injury to the growth plates, areas of developing cartilage in the long bones of the hand and fingers, forearm, leg and foot, which are weaker than the nearby ligaments and tendons. Something that causes a bruise or sprain in an adult can be a potentially serious growth plate injury in a young athlete, Dr. Khabie warns.
Staying Safe Out There
Here are five tips for keeping your pee wee player off the injured list:
Be Sure Hes Ready. Before age 6, most children lack the motor skills, balance and attention span for football. By age 10 or 12, most are physically and cognitively ready, but parents should still be careful, Dr. Khabie says. For example, some 10- to 12-year-olds may be starting puberty, which can make a big difference (pubescent boys will be taller, heavier and stronger, but that doesnt necessarily mean theyll be better football players). Growth spurts can temporarily affect coordination, balance and athletic ability, which can also make a child seem more or less ready for football.
Gear up. Make sure your child is using the right protective gear: pads (neck, shoulder, elbow, chest, knee, and shin), helmets, mouthpieces, face guards and the rest. Be sure the equipment is in good condition and worn correctly, every time he plays. Poorly fitting equipment will be uncomfortable and may not offer the best protection.
Pick the best program. Enroll your child in an organized program thats committed to injury prevention. Coaches should be trained in first aid and CPR, be well versed in the proper use of equipment and enforce rules on safety.
Condition young muscles. Build your childs strength and flexibility with conditioning and stretching exercises. Make warm-ups and cool-downs part of his routine, before and after every practice and game. This can help minimize the chance of muscle strain or other soft tissue injury during sports.
Remember: Practice makes perfect. Children should learn and practice essential skills, such as tackling or blocking, and follow proper safety precautions every time they step onto the field, Dr. Khabie says. Statistics show that the majority of organized sports-related injuries occur during practice, but one-third of parents dont have their children take the same safety precautions at practice that they do on game days.
